hi there i went on roaccutane for 4 months and it cleared my acne, so i waited 14 months after the course and booked for co2 laser , i had 1 cheek done, i am due for the other cheek next week, it has done nothing for my scars, and i even have more scarrs, i really dnt know what to try next, they said i mite have more scarring because i mite hav active acne, i dnt get pimples or spots so does that mean i dnt have active acne,

Andyc, I found Regular CO2 to be totally inneffective. Try Fraxel Re:pair fractionalized CO2, it is much better, but it is expensive. http://www.fraxel.com/patients.aspx

p.s. I don't know the implications of doing this treament with active acne or taking the medications you are taking so investigate thouroughly.
