Spot treating a facial atrophic scar with fractional co2 after picosure focus?

I have 3 chicken pox scars and 1 huge atrophic scar. My derma will be doin a spot treatment on these areas. I had my first session and the scabs fell off on the 3rd day, after 4 weeks i can already see slight improvement. We will be doin the treament every 4 weeks until desired outcome. Will spot treating the scars on my face just ok? i had 3 pico focus before starting with co2, maybe the reason why i got some results even with just 1 fco2. Derm said i might need 2 more fco2.

Thanks for your query. That is the best treatment available for spot scars. It will show improvement but it is a gradual affair. I believe you should go as your dermatologist is saying. Your treatment is perfect and going in right direction and you continue the same. Hope it helps.
