Fractional laser resurfacing has become an important technique in the management of a number of skin conditions, such as photoaging and scars. A variety of laser wavelengths and delivery systems have been introduced to improve immediate and long-term therapeutic results. The simultaneous emission of CO(2) laser and radiofrequency waves combines epidermal coagulation for a resurfacing effect and dermal denaturization for deeper remodelling. The authors present this new machine together with a preclinical histological study and pilot study on 15 patients suffering from acne scars.
