In brief: It works VERY well!

The co2 laser works very well for acne scars of the face.
The co2 laser emits invisible energy that is absorbed by the skin, vaporizing a very thin amount of the surface. The laser energy also stimulates production of new collagen. This results in the skin becoming smoother, and ultimately stronger and thicker than before the treatment. It may not get rid of all the scars, but it really helps!
