What Is an Acne Scar Treatment?

An acne scar treatment promotes a more uniform skin texture by treating this textural irregularity with an energy-based device to renew and rejuvenate the complexion. We offer the most effective treatments to address this skin imperfection, including Fraxel laser, Morpheus8, Sciton HALO, and Sciton laser skin resurfacing treatments.

What Are the Benefits of Acne Scar Removal?

One of the benefits of undergoing an acne scar removal treatment plan is that we can completely customize the entire treatment protocol to meet each patient’s needs. Once we learn more about your skin, we can determine which device or combination of treatment options can help restore a uniform skin tone. Other treatment benefits include the following:

  • Visibly improved skin texture
  • No significant downtime
  • Safe treatment plans for all skin types
  • Total skin rejuvenation in the treatment area
  • Improved confidence in the appearance of the skin
  • Quick treatments

Fraxel

Fraxel is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that uses a non-ablative fractional laser to visibly improve the appearance of acne scars. No invasive techniques are associated with the treatment, and patients can see results after just one session. The device has an integrated cooling system that helps promote patient comfort throughout the treatment process.

There’s minimal downtime, and patients can expect visible improvements in the appearance of acne scars and the health and appearance of their skin.

How It Works

The device has a dual 1550/1927 laser that will stimulate collagen and elastin production below the acne scar. Skin volume will increase as the body responds to the treatment, and the acne scar will become less noticeable. The device can make a significant difference in the appearance of surface acne scars, and the results are permanent. Patients typically see the best results after three to five sessions, with two to four weeks between each.

Morpheus8

We also offer Morpheus8 acne scar removal treatment plans to help patients naturally address acne scars. Patients who begin a Morpheus8 treatment plan can expect dramatic results. The device uses microneedles and radiofrequency energy to create injuries in the skin and heat the dermal tissue to force the body to respond with a significant increase in collagen and elastin production.

It also promotes cellular turnover, naturally improving skin tone and texture. These methods combined will visibly reduce the appearance of acne scars after just one treatment. Patients typically see the best results after completing several sessions with a few weeks between each.

Sciton HALO

The HALO laser by Sciton is a laser skin resurfacing device that we can use to treat acne scars on patients with skin types I through VI. The device uses laser energy to stimulate natural collagen and elastin production to visibly improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of acne scars.

We can use the device to treat acne scarring on the face and other body areas. Most patients see the best results after at least two treatments with a few weeks between each. We customize treatment plans based on the severity of each patient’s acne scars and their ultimate treatment goals.

How It Works

Before treatment, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to your skin to promote comfort and use the device to target your treatment area. You’ll see visible results after your first treatment and gradual results as the body heals the skin and reduces the appearance of your acne scars.

Sciton Laser Skin Resurfacing

Our Sciton laser skin resurfacing treatment can significantly improve acne scars and is safe for all skin types. The device uses fractional laser energy to stimulate natural collagen in elastin production and promote cellular regeneration, forcing the body to replace older or damaged skin cells with younger ones.

After treatments, patients can expect visible improvements in the appearance of acne scars and gradual results over time. The device is fully adjustable so that we can customize treatments for each patient as needed.

TCA CROSS

Short for Trichloroacetic Acid Chemical Reconstruction of Skin Scars, offers a highly effective solution for ice-pick and boxcar types. This simple treatment involves applying a high concentration of Trichloroacetic acid (70-100%) directly into the pitted scar using the tip of a toothpick. TCA CROSS is also beneficial for deep open pores with a quick recovery time of less than a week. The procedure generally requires multiple sessions, spaced 2 to 8 weeks apart, with most individuals needing 3 to 6 treatments for maximum improvement. At Perfect Skin we have found the best results are obtained if TCA CROSS is done immediately after a Fraxel 1550 treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Patients who begin an acne scar treatment plan can benefit from a single session with one of these devices. Typically, the best results come from several sessions with a few weeks between each so that we can stimulate enough collagen and elastin production to visibly reduce the appearance of the acne scars. Once we evaluate your skin, we can determine how many sessions will be necessary to restore a uniform skin texture.

After treatments, patients can expect visible improvements in the appearance of acne scars and gradual results over time. The device is fully adjustable so that we can customize treatments for each patient as needed.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Depending on which device we use during your acne scar removal treatment plan, you may see immediate or gradual results as your body heals and responds by increasing collagen and elastin. Once we meet with you at a pre-treatment consultation, we can evaluate your acne scars and give you a better idea of what results you can expect.

After treatments, patients can expect visible improvements in the appearance of acne scars and gradual results over time. The device is fully adjustable so that we can customize treatments for each patient as needed.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for an acne scar treatment plan are men and women with visible facial scarring that prevents them from feeling confident in the appearance of their skin. Whether you have mild, moderate, or more severe acne scars, we can customize a treatment plan to improve your skin texture and promote optimal skin health.

Eliminate Your Acne Scars for Good

Acne scars can significantly affect your confidence, but there is a solution. Our powerful devices use state-of-the-art technology to safely restore a uniform skin texture. We can design acne scar treatment plans for patients with all different skin types and concerns. The first step is your initial consultation, where we can confirm your treatment eligibility and design the perfect treatment plan for you.
