Profractional Laser Treatment for Acne Scarring
Yes, a combination of MLP's and Profractional resurfacing can greatly improve acne scarring. Other treatments which also help are direct excision and closure of the deepest scars, subcision and sublative laser treatments.
Combination therapy of all of these treatments is usually required for best results.
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 these treatments.
I hope this helps.

I prefer the fractional CO2 laser from Lumenis for this problem. I find that patients require fewer treatments and short recovery periods following these treatments with excellent results. As always discuss this with your treating physician and explore the different options and why they recommend one treatment over another.
