CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser is used to repair the scarred skin. The laser emits an intense beam of energy that heats and vaporizes tissue instantaneously. It is so precise that the normal surrounding tissue is not affected. Once the outer layer of skin has been removed, the new skin which grows beneath is softer, smoother with a more youthful appearance. It is therefore useful in deep acne scars and old pox-scars.
