What is the latest laser technology for acne scars?

Dear Dr. Irwin, Kindly advise on the latest technology in acne scars after the Fraxel laser. I heard there's a new kind of laser recently released but i really cant remember it's name. Thank you. -Areej

Here is a link to the article I wrote on fractionated CO2 lasers.  Sometimes in our practice here, we will combine several modalities like subscision, CO2 or Fraxel, and certain fillers for the best possible results.   Hope this helps!   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
