Will Active FX laser treat "pitted scars?"


Can you please advise if the Active FX laser will treat "pitted scars?"


Treatment of acne scars vary with multiple modalities depending on the nature of these scars and the depth of these scars.

Ice pick scars are small and deep. They need excision.  Wide depressed scars vary in depth and therefore vary in response to treatment.

The best treatment of acne scars, medium depth, is CO2 laser resurfacing.  Active FX is good, but you will need MULTIPLE sessions to get some improvement.

The very deep ice pick scars need excision, then laser resurfacing to improve on the scars.

Depending on the scars you may see a 50-60% improvement with multiple CO2 laser treatments.
