Venus Laser to zap scars and smooth skin texture?

HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS LASER OR KNOW IF IT'S EFFECTIVE?

There is a relatively unknown Erbium YAG laser known as the "Venus Laser", that doesn't peel down quite to the dermis. My derm has this laser and you need multiple treatments for best results. She charges $300/treatment and thinks it's better than Smootbeam. I'm thinking of trying it. Here's a link with some info and before/after pics:

And here's a link to the manufacturer:

This laser is like getting 6 microdermabrasions at once, and the heat from the laser is supposed to influence the dermis' collagen in a positive manner. My derm says scarring risks are extremely low, since only the epidermis is being peeled.
