Acne scars are very effectively treated only by a non-ablative (no shedding of skin and no down time) fraxelated lasers. We have seen dramatic improvement with such treatments. These layers penetrate much deeper than the ablative, skin peeling ablative CO2 and erbium lasers which can not safely reach the bottom of most acne scars. Ironically the latter are the treatment of choice for wrinkles; the former are often promoted for wrinkles for which they do nothing. The flip is true for acne scars.
