Understanding Acne Scar Treatment

Treatment of acne scars is performed using the PicoSure 755 nm laser with focus lens array. Using the PicoSure dual approach in conjunction with the focus lens, the acne scar treatment creates a thermal injury which then results in collagen synthesis and the visible improvement in appearance and texture of scarring.

*Note: multiple treatments may be necessary

Our Device: PicoSure

The PicoSure workstation is an Alexandrite system that delivers laser energy in the 755 nm wavelength. The system offers treatment of tattoos, benign pigmented lesions, wrinkles & acne scarring. PicoSure technology combines a dual approach when treating: a modest photothermal process and a strong photomechanical impact based on ultra-short pulse duration. The combination of photothermolysis and intense photomechanical impact, known as Pressure Wave, breaks up the intended target, ink or pigment, into particles that are easily eliminated from the body. Through the use of the focus lens array which is a diffractive lens the PicoSure is able to treat wrinkles & acne scars.

Advanced Acne Scar Treatments: 1540nm & SmartSkin CO2

At Ridha Plastic Surgery and Medspa, we offer a full range of advanced treatments to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Every person has a varying degree of depth, discoloration, and appearance of acne scars. Your scar treatment will be customized to produce the most noticeable improvement, and we employ various systems to achieve the goal.

The 1540nm system is a “diode laser,” a type of laser capable of penetrating deep into the skin. The laser reaches the sebaceous glands which absorb the energy and are then damaged, reduced in size, and limit the glands ability to produce sebum – the underlying cause of many cases of acne. This system has proven to be effective in treating cases of inflammatory acne and provides long-term results for patients who are suffering from active cases of acne.

The SmartSkin CO2 system produces remarkable results as a treatment for acne scars, including uneven skin tone and rough texture. Not only does this system smooth and refine skin, it produces the added benefit of stimulating natural collagen production so your skin is restored to a thicker, more youthful suppleness. Red or blotchy skin can be greatly improved and established acne scars can become far less visible, creating a smoother, more even appearance to your facial skin.
