Can There Be Scar From Laser Co2 Treatment

Equal: Fractional lasers use a laser beam that is delivered to the skin with a grid pattern. This leaves minute patches of untreated skin between laser spots. This allows faster healing with less risks. No laser is very effective against deep scars and are better for superficial scarring. Deeper scars may require surgical revision or dermabrasion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Keloids: Depending on the size of the keloid you I tend to excise them and/or inject with steroid. I personally have ablated keloids with an Erbium and CO2 laser but without much long term success. Fractional CO2 for a smaller keloid or hypertrophic scar may be beneficial, but if it is fairly large I'd excise it. Good luck ...Read more
