Laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing treatments, sometimes known as "laser peels," involve the use of lasers to treat skin blemishes like wrinkles and age spots.

I have medium to tan skin. Is CO2 laser still the best treatment for my acne scars?

Not sure without a face to face consult. However, as a general rule olive to darker skin types are at greater risk for post CO2 laser dyspigmentation problems. Fractional CO2 is safer than non-fractional CO2. A test spot may be employed to sample your healing. There are many options and combinations of options for improvement of acne scars and a face to face consult is needed to best assess what might be your best solution.
