Comparison of Fractional Er:YAG and Carbon Dioxide Lasers in Resurfacing of Atrophic Scars in Asians (Summary)
Fractional erbium (Er:YAG) and carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are ablative fractional resurfacing systems widely used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and atrophic scars. However, there have been limited studies comparing the clinical outcome and adverse effects of these two lasers. We conducted a prospective, randomized trial to compare the efficacy and safety of fractional erbium and carbon dioxide lasers for the treatment of atrophic acne scars in individuals with skin phototype IV.
