What is

Acne laser treatment
 

Acne treatment, consists in reducing scars produced by this pathology through laser called CO2. Such lesions leave deep scars in areas such as: cheeks, forehead, nose, neck and back, which do NOT improve by using lotions.

CO2 laser reduces thickness of skin and reduces deepness of scars reducing their size. At the same time, it polishes skin so it does not look thick and irregular. The final result is a reduction of scars, fresher skin and more homogeneous significantly reducing the stigma of having suffered acne.
