Like others, I do believe that a lot of the results are both operator and laser dependent. If we are talking about collagen stimulation- CO2 is the best. 
If you are talking about non-ablative collagen, probably 1550, which is the Fraxel wavelength. All the bestDr Davin LimLaser and aesthetic dermatologistBrisbane Australia. 

Very effective

Thank you for your question. The Palomar (newly called icon) 1540 fractional resurfacing laser is FDA cleared and very effective for treating acne scars over a series of 3 to 4 treatments. This is due to the fact that this is a non-ablative laser, therefore it affects tissues Deeper in the skin creating coagulation, increasing collagen, Thickening the skin in the areas treated beneath the acne scars, and filling the "holes" and "gaps" as a result within the skin. Both XD And XF hand pieces are used in combination for optimum results. The more aggressive the treatment, within reason, the better the results you will have.  Best of luck!

The laser is less as important as the person performing the procedure.  The gold standard fractional laser is the FRAXEL and anything other than that is less superior in my opinion.  Best, Dr. Emer.
