- Laser Resurfacing: With laser resurfacing, light waves are used to destroy the outer layer of damaged skin. This prompts the development of new skin cells. Over time, your skin will have a marked reduction in acne scars and have an improved texture. Some options include the Active FX, Deep FX, Scaar FX and/or Total FX laser treatments.
- Photorejuvenation: Photorejuvenation works by using a laser light source to stimulate the skin’s production of collagen. After a series of several treatments, your skin will be smoother and acne scars will be less visible. Since the laser light source does not remove any skin layers, there is no downtime and no recovery period.
- Vibradermabrasion: Vibradermabrasion is similar to microdermabrasian treatments and treats acne scars by sloughing off the damaged top layers of skin. In addition to encouraging the production of collagen, vibradermabrasion can reveal skin with a healthy glow and a refined texture.
- Chemical Peels: During a chemical peel, outer layers of scarred and damaged skin are removed, which stimulates the growth of new skin cells. Regular treatments can minimize acne scarring and reveal smoother, healthier-looking skin.
- Photodynamic Therapy: Photodynamic therapy is non-invasive and uses light and a photosensitizing agent to improve the appearance of your skin. Specifically, this treatment can treat acne, acne scars, minimize pores and reduce the size of the oil glands.
