Acne Scars Treatment

Persistent and untreated inflammatory acne lesions may cause various degrees of permanent scarring. Laser resurfacing is one of the most effective ways of reducing and clearing acne scars.

Available laser treatments include ablative and non-ablative skin resurfacing. The choice of treatment depends on the type of scar (box, rolling, or icepick) and on the patient’s preferences and expectations in terms of number of treatments and downtime.

› Ablative resurfacing: ideal for patients seeking an amazing improvement in a single session.

› Non-ablative resurfacing: ideal for patients who prefer a milder treatment approach that requires several treatments but has less downtime.
