I was recently interviewed by the team at The Patient's Guide about fractional resurfacing for treatment of acne scars. Below is an excerpt of that discussion:
"What we have really found the fractional technology to be useful for is acne scarring. Previously we have used dermabrasions and laser peels, Ultrapulse CO2 lasers and erbium lasers, along with fillers and excision to treat acne scars. Now with this fractional technology, using an either coagulative form or ablative form, we can get significant improvements over a series of treatments."
I am a big believer in the efficacy of fractional laser resurfacing for this application.
