Is There Help for Acne Scarring?
Q: I have some acne scarring on my face and legs and was wondering if I would be a good candidate for CO2 laser. I was also wondering about what the costs of such a procedure would typically cost, and if multiple sessions were required in order to see results.
A: We use both Fraxel and Fractional CO2 (the Lumines Total FX) for acne scarring of the face and have seen very good results. Which laser we choose depends on your condition and skin type. At your consultation, we will also talk about whether you still have ongoing acne – as we would want to treat that first. The cost of lasers for acne scarring is about $3000 to $4000. For the CO2, some patients do need a second treatment. This would be at a reduced charge, and is not done until about six months after the first treatment.
For legs, the CO2 is probably too strong, but we could evaluate your legs to see if you are a candidate for the Fraxel. There are some other options for scarring on the legs. Please call 206-859-5777 to make a cosmetic consultation appointment. There is no charge for cosmetic consultations.
