Can fractional CO2 laser be used for acne scars on Asian skin?

Fractional CO2 laser is one of the most ideal laser platforms for skin surface irregularities and acne scars on the skin.  Fractional CO2 can be used on most skin types; however, darker skin types necessitate less aggressive and less invasive treatment with fractional CO2.  Asian skin can vary in terms of level of pigmentation but is particularly prone to acne scars.  In practice fractional CO2 laser can be used on acne scars to resurface the skin and recontour skin irregularities and atrophic acne scars on the face. 


Patients with darker skin complexion and olive tone skin can also be candidates for fractional CO2 laser.  In patients with darker skin tones, a three to four week pretreatment skin protocol will be required, which includes treatment with Melaquin AM, Melaquin PM, and MelaPads.  To schedule a consultation for fractional CO2 laser for acne scars, please call our office at 310-998-5533.
