Best Way to Treat Acne Scars

Mar 16, 2015 | Blog

Acnes ScarsDid you know that acne is the most common skin condition in our country? According to the Mayo Clinic an estimated 70 to 87 percent of teenagers suffer from acne, and the condition can also affect some adults. Even after successful treatment, the more serious cases can leave behind acne scars and dark spots.
The good news is that you don’t have to resign yourself to living with these permanent reminders. CO2 laser resurfacing safely removes scars and discoloration while reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin texture.

Active FX: The gold standard of laser resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing treatments have reached a new level of safety and effectiveness with Active FX. The new technology incorporates the technique of fractionation, a process that makes the laser less intrusive with the ability to address several types of skin imperfections. Instead of emitting a solid beam that is more difficult to control with precision, Active FX uses short pulses that target the imperfection while leaving the surrounding area unaffected.

Restore softness and even tone to your complexion

Laser resurfacing works by even ablation of the surface of your skin in microscopic layers, thereby removing acne scars, dark spots and other imperfections. The new skin that is revealed is more uniform and youthful-looking. Heat from the laser also stimulates creation of collagen deposits, resulting in softer skin and a pleasing smoothness.

Avoid extensive downtime and recovery

The treatment is done right in our Scottsdale office and can be completed in an afternoon. Precision of the laser and minimal depth of the procedure help to minimize after-effects. Your skin care specialist will provide you with precise instructions for treatment of swelling and minor discomfort if necessary.
