Acne Scar Treatment

Once thought to be irreversible, acne scars of all types can now be effectively treated, helping you reclaim smoother, unblemished skin. New technologies make it possible to see significant, dramatic and long-lasting improvements.

Because no single therapy will completely treat acne scars, we typically combine several treatment types to achieve the best results.

These treatments types include:

ProFractional therapy

When applied to acne scar tissue, this laser treatment stimulates the production of collagen, which plumps the skin and smoothes out the scar. ProFractional therapy disrupts the foundations of the scar tissue which leads to a smoother, rejuvenated appearance of the skin. Because ProFractional therapy targets only a fraction of the skin surface, recovery is shorter.

Microlaser Peel

This treatment uses a laser to precisely and uniformly remove the uppermost layers of acne scars and surrounding skin, which are later replaced by newer, healthier tissue. The laser’s energy also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps smooth out the scar and make your skin tighter.

Fotofacial

A non-ablative technology with hardly any down-time, Fotofacial uses intense pulses of light (IPL) to deliver energy deep into the skin, where it reduces inflammation of the acne-producing (sebaceous) glands. In addition it stimulates collagen production to decrease the appearance of acne scars, redness and other problems.

Unlike oral medications used to treat acne, the side effects of our regimen are minimal because the therapy is topical and aimed directly at the source of your problem.
