Acne Scarring PackageMost acne blemishes leave behind a mark. Our hope is that these marks are just superficial discolorations. If your skin remains smooth but exhibits dark or red spots, you simply have an acne mark. Those marks are not scars — they are just temporarily discolored. It usually takes 3-6 months for the marks to disappear without treatment.
However, if you have a scar, you’re dealing with permanent skin damage that needs treatment in order to disappear. An acne scar changes the texture of the skin. If acne has left indentations, or raised spots, the damage has occurred at a deeper level in the skin. These indentations indicate scarring that needs more than a surface-level treatment.
When you have true scars that have changed the texture of your skin, you’ll need a medical procedure to see improvement. Our Ultimate Acne Scarring Package addresses acne scarring with several different modalities assuring the best outcome possible.
Ultimate Acne Scarring Package $2995
SubcisionDepressed acne scars have fibrotic tracts that tethered the skin to the deep dermis or subcutaneous tissue. A specialized instrument is used to break off these deep tracts to release the skin.
Fotona Erbium and Nd:YAG resurfacing for acne scarringRaised scars can be effaced and soften with a resurfacing laser. This resurfacing laser can remove damaged skin and stimulate collagen formation. A unique fractionated mode of the Fotona Nd:YAG laser can be used to safely and effectively treat skin of color. There may be redness and swelling for 5-7 days. Usually 1-2 treatments are needed.
PRP (Platelet-rich plasma)When your own blood is injected back into your skin, the body naturally begins a healing process that helps rid of acne scars. We often recommend PRP as an add-on therapy to laser acne scar treatments, to deliver the best results possible to our acne scar patients.
The growth factors in your PRP plus the stem cell migration initiated by your PRP maximize collagen and elastin synthesis and regeneration of healthy new skin tissue for optimum treatment results.
