Welcome to Healthcare Magic
CO2 laser is good treatment for removal of scars. The C02 laser prevents re-epithelialization of the scar. Other lasers are mainly used to remove thick scars on the chest etc. CO2 laser is to remove mainly acne scars. It will lighten the scar. Your Doctor may advice you to use cream as well to help more in lightening process. Do regular follow up with your Doctor.
