Laser for Acne Scars

We are starting to see incredible results from our new Lutronic eCO2 premium laser (Fractional CO2 Laser).  All of our patients have been thrilled with their treatment and results.  The premium eCO2 laser combines the benefits of CO2 laser technology with the benefits of limited healing time of fractionated technology (such as Fraxel).  In addition, our CO2 laser is very versatile so that I am able to alter the settings (energy forms and patterns)  in order to achieve the most desirable results.

Below is a video of one of our patients who had her Acne scars treated with the fractional CO2 laser. My philosophy on acne scar treatment is based on directing treatment based on the type of acne scar present. Since acne scars come in different varieties (shapes and forms), laser surgery for acne scars works very well on particular types of scarring patterns, but not as well on others. I will often combine modalities at the same time. Treating acne scars in this fashion leads to the best possible results.

As time goes on, her skin will continue to build new collagen and I am looking forward to the progress.
