Once you  have  already done fractional co2 there are lot of options  to  consider for further improvement namely - tca cross, subcision, cryosluch, punch elevation, dermabrasion , prp and many other combinations. Read a bit about them and then consult a dermatologist.  Any further treatment  will have to  be  customised  according  to  your need/ type of scar/ your profession/ downtime/ your skin type etc.  Don't  repeat  fractional co2 atleast before 6-8 mths have elapsed since last session. ( for a scenario  where 4-5 sessions are already done)

Hi.. scars can be treated with dermaroller / laser . Both gives good results.

You can go ahead with dermaroller because it is more cost effective and equally good results.  It is done once in a month for 4 months. It is done under topical anesthesia without much discomfort .

There will mild redness post procedure.  Ideally should get it done on a Friday evening so that you can return to work on Monday .

You will start seeing results from the first setting itself. For more queries consult a dermatologist
