Acne scars ans psoriasis

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have moderate acne scars on my face, I am 35 years old, and a year ago I was diagnosed with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, I have psoriasis on my face but it is controlled, at least for now, my question is can I get some treatment to reduce acne marks such as co2 or is not possible.

@ruben123 you may have CO2, please give full disclosure to the Dr. Some Dr's might reject treating you, steroids may be needed. Energy settings will have to be turned down in your case with more treatments needed. 

What would be better here is posting a picture of your scars, I need to see the shadows they make, and I can give you the best solution with your condition(s) in mind. Laser is not always the solution to scars, ... yes many general derms just blast you when you walk in the door $$$$.

I would be more inclined to use manual methods of scar revision on you. 

CO2 is for slight texture and many do not know this, thinking it works on all scar types.
