The safest and most effective treatment for acne scars is the fractional CO2 laser. This laser works by resurfacing only a “fraction” of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding area intact for faster healing. The fractional CO2 laser pokes tiny microscopic holes in the skin down past the epidermis and into the dermis. These holes cause new collagen to be generated, which fills in the acne scars and creates rejuvenated smoother skin.
The Smartxide2 Dot Laser takes a step further by combining the CO2 laser with radiofrequency. This not only helps to maximize treatment results, but allows patients to have quicker outcomes with a reduced risk of adverse events post-procedure.
