Acne Scar Removal

Unlike surgery, laser acne scar removal treatment uses ultra-short pulses of laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime.


What types of acne scars can be treated?

Laser acne scar treatment is FDA-cleared for acne scars on any area of the body, including the face.

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?

Laser acne scar removal treatment can work on many skin types, including very light and darker skin. Contact us to find out if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

How long does it take?

The treatment can be performed in as little as 15 minutes or less, depending on the size of the targeted area.

How many treatment sessions will it take?

A series of treatments is usually recommended. Each patient is unique and will be evaluated prior to treatment.

What does the treatment feel like?

Most patients find the procedure tolerable and require no numbing cream or anesthesia. The use of a forced air cooling system (Zimmer Cryo 6) is used to minimise discomfort. Patients often compare the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band and most people handle this treatment well.

What type of post treatment care is necessary?

It is important to keep the area clean and to avoid any irritation. Your practitioner will provided additional after care instructions as needed to ensure a quick recovery.

What’s the down time?

Unlike fractional lasers you will only have redness and swelling for a few hours, sometimes within an hour it may only appear as if you climbed a flight of stairs. For busy people this has been a game changer and no more hiding at home for days on end.

Are there any side effects to acne scar removal treatment?

Typical side effects include temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site. Unwanted pigmentation associated with the acne scarring should slightly frost (whiten) during treatment, then darken over the following 24 hours and then shed over time.
