Thanks for writing in.

Fractional CO2 is the best laser for acne scars with very less downtime.

You can expect an improvement of 50 -70 % in 2-5 sittings.

CO2 laser when combined with DERMAROLLER can give better results than laser alone.

Please discuss this option with your dermatologist.

Usually Laser and Dermaroller sittings are done on alternate basis.

Hope this helps.

I will be available for follow up.
