Acne Scar Treatment | Fractional and CO2 Lasers
Treatment can be difficult. Usually multiple treatment modalities are necessary, including:
- Fractional vs Ablative lasers
- Direct excision for ice pick acne
Usually a combination of these treatments gives the best results. Treatment is customized on a case-by-case basis.
To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.
Fraxel or Co2 laser or eMatrix Laser for Acne Scars
You are a great candidate for these lasers to help treat the scars. If you do not want significant down time I would opt for eMatrix or Fraxel. You could benefit also from injections of fillers first to raise the scars and help produce needed collagen. I also inject Scultpra just for this reason and helps incredibly well for these acne scars. Consult an expert in scars for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
