Fractional laser technology is routinely used for skin rejuvenation, with thermal injury resulting in collagen synthesis and remodeling. In a previous preclinical study, after 3 sessions of fractional picosecond 1,064-nm laser treatment on the mouse, significantly increased dermal collagen synthesis was observed. Hence, this study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of fractional picosecond 1,064-nm laser treatment for the treatment of wrinkles and acne scars. Overall, 22 patients [15 women, 7 men; mean age, 39 (range, 21 –66) years; 12 wrinkle and 10 acne scar patients] received 3 laser treatments at 3-week intervals.
