The use of laser to treat acne scarring.
This treatment is indicated in order to improve the appearance of scarring that may be left behind as the result of acne.
In order to treat the scarring left by acne, an ablative technique similar to Skin Resurfacingcan be used with a CO2 ultra pulse or a non-ablative technique with a fractional laser or with radiofrequency.
The procedure is carried out as an outpatient.
The patient may resume their normal social life after about 15-20 days in the case of the ablative technique and after about 2-3 days in the case of the non-ablative technique.
