5 Advantages of Laser Acne Scar Treatments

Acne scarring affects individuals in several ways, influencing their appearance, confidence, and self-esteem. Although many products and treatments boast of results akin to a miracle, most fall well short of a satisfactory outcome.

Board-certified in Oculoplastic and Facial Surgery, Dr. Malena Amato offers laser facial resurfacing to resolve acne scarring, deep facial wrinkles, and fine lines. With this innovative technology, its advantages surpass other acne scarring treatments. These benefits include:

1. Resolve Deep Scarring and Pitting

Our Fractional laser therapy can not only help with superficial and shallow scars but deep indentations (boxcar or ice pick scars) as well. By triggering collagen regeneration, this treatment will tighten the skin for a firmer, taut appearance to aptly complement your facial features.

2. Less Harsh Than Traditional Methods (Non-Ablative)

Traditional laser treatments use ablative blasts of energy that redden, irritate, or flake sensitive skin, much like a severe sunburn. Our non-ablative Laser Resurfacing treatment is gentler on the skin, with healing and downtime less than a week.

3. Fractional Benefits

The term fractional means it will only affect the troubled tissue and leave the adjacent tissue alone. This process makes the healing process less intense and decreases downtime. It also makes your recovery more comfortable with less tissue that needs to heal.

4. Safe for All Skin Types

Whether you’re light-skinned, have a dark skin tone, are somewhere in-between, our CO2 Laser Therapy is an excellent treatment for patients of all ages— from teenagers to people over 50.

5. Ideal for All Scar Types

There are two main types of acne scarring: those that are raised above the skin (hypertrophic) and those that are depressions in the skin (Atrophic). Our CO2 Laser therapy addresses both by stretching the skin and building collagen levels in depression areas, or by breaking down excess scar tissue to create a smoother skin texture.
