Thank you for your query. Fractional co 2 laser requires multiple sittings for acne scars. Once, you have achieved your end result from the procedure it remains permanent unless you have a fresh bout of acne over it. Just maintain it with proper serums and sunscreen and you can maintain your skin forever. Hope it helps.

Co2 Facts for Acne Scarring

Yes, Co2 can give lifetime improvement but works best in combination with other treatments like microneedling/prp, subcision and fillers to help acne scarring. It may take a series of treatments. I recommend a formal consultation with an acne scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer
