Pixel CO2 Laser Treatment
Of Acne Scars

The Pixel CO2 laser is a skin resurfacing procedure that uses intense heat to vaporize damaged skin cells and stimulate collagen production. It can treat acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin blemishes. The Pixel CO2 laser has a lower risk of complications than traditional CO2 laser resurfacing, and it has minimal downtime and faster healing. 

The Pixel CO2 laser is a more aggressive form of laser resurfacing that uses a grid pattern to press the skin. It can improve the tone and texture of skin, and smooth out acne scars. The laser heat allows your skin to heal faster and kindles collagen production. 

The Pixel CO2 laser is ideal for people with mild to moderate acne scarring, facial scars, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin blemishes. It is not recommended for those with darker skin tones or certain skin types. In darker skin types, the treatment can be performed with reduced intensity to minimize any side effects.

After treatment, you may experience mild swelling or redness for a couple of days, and peeling may last approximately a week. It is essential to maintain good sun protection habits and wear sunscreen daily. 

Can CO2 laser remove deep acne scars?

The CO2 laser is a very powerful tool when treating acne scars. It makes the necessary stimulation of fibroblast in the dermis, which allows for new collagen production and remodeling of the scar tissue.

How many sessions of CO2 laser are needed for acne scars?

The number of laser treatments required to significantly reduce acne scars is usually between three to six treatments, over a period of a few months.

Do scars come back after CO2 laser?

Once a scar is removed with the CO2 fractional laser, it's not coming back. Of course, you may have scarring in other areas to be treated, but you won't have to worry about the treated skin scarring again. These lasers are designed to repair your skin and not cause any further damage.
