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! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
