we already have a few lasers to pick one, the thing about this laser is that it says "10 treatments within a 3 month time span"
doesnt sound to strong

Thanks for the info Binga! Did you call yet? Do you know what skin types they're looking for?

I agree that it probably won't be an intensive treatment considering the number of sessions, but hey if you get in it's free treatment.

It's possible this study is for ablative fractional co2 laser. I met with a doctor a couple days ago who said there are current research studies in the USA that have shown repeating ablative fractional Co2 laser every 2-3 months offers better improvement to mature scars because new collagen responds better to treatment. He even mentioned a study that came out of Pakistan where they repeated laser treatment every 1-2 months on some patients, and those patients had a better response rate. I have not seen the study though. It will be interesting to see what this study is about.

Good luck, mccoy110c. I hope this works out for you. :)

.

Where are you quoting this from? This is what I am seeing, "Study participants must be 18-85 years of age with facial, body or acne scars. You will receive up to 10 treatments scheduled 4-8 weeks apart."
