Fractional CO2 for acne prone skin: Los Angeles plastic surgeon for SmartXide CO2

Is fractional CO2 laser appropriate for acne prone skin?


The fractional CO2 laser uses an ablative laser source that provides high energy resurfacing of the skin.  In doing so, the skin surface is tightened, texture improves, and fibroblasts stimulated to produce increase amounts of collagen and elastin.  Fractional CO2 lasers can also improve the quality of the dermis, leading to increase skin resiliency and elasticity.  The patients who have acne prone skin and acne scars can benefit significantly with the fractional CO2 laser.  This laser can improve acne scars by resurfacing the surface texture of the skin and stimulating the development of collagen and elastin.  Patients note remarkable changes with the fractional CO2 acne scar treatment method with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.  As you may know, acne scars are often difficult to treat and multiple sessions are often required to minimize downtime.
