Question about laser after fat transfer.
Doctor Answers 1
CO2 for acne scars
The laser will only penetrate into the dermis (the bottom layer of skin). The fat, both native and transplanted, is below this so there is no need to be concerned. The CO2 laser will stimulate your collagen and soften the look of your scars. These days we accept laser as the gold standard for the treatment of scars so you have chosen well. Depending on your scars sometimes certain fillers or subcision (releasing tethering beneath the scar) can be combined with laser. It is important to have this treatment performed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon experienced in this area given the power of this laser. Good luck
