Etwo Sublative - Minimal Downtime!
or Fractional CO2 - We can help you with your acne scars
Fractional CO2 Laser resurfacing is a newer and safer form of traditional CO2 laser skin resurfacing and the gold standard for acne scarring.
It penetrates deeper into the layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. The collagen production "plumps up" the depression from the acne scar thereby diminishing its appearance and improving any skin discoloration. This is the "gold" standard for improving saucer like scars. Achieving best results will require 5-7 days of healing time. 1-4 sessions as needed.
Safe for fair - medium complexion.
By placing fractionated bi-polar radio frequency (RF) directly into the dermis, Sublative stimulates the production of collagen, regenerating a more youthful complexion for some or all these issues: wrinkles, sundamage, pores or acne scarring.
If you require minimal healing time, this is our favorite device for Acne Scarring. Makeup can be applied during the 3-4 day healing time! 4-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart is ideal. Number of treatments vary depending on depth of scars/visible improvement.
Safe for all skin types.
Although we know what increases a person’s risk of developing acne scars, it is not possible to predict who will develop acne scars. Even people who have all the risk factors may not scar.
Waiting to treat acne until it becomes severe can lead to extensive scarring.
When acne breakouts penetrate the skin deeply, they damage the skin and the tissue beneath it. As the acne clears, the body tries to repair this damage.
During the healing process, the body produces collagen — a substance that gives the skin support. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, you will see a scar.
The type of scar depends on how much collagen your body makes.
Depressed acne scars: If the body produces too little collagen, depressions or pits form as the skin heals.
Raised acne scars: Sometimes the body produces too much collagen as it tries to heal the skin and underlying tissue. When this happens, a person develops a raised acne scar. This type of acne scar is more common in people who have skin of color like African Americans, Hispanics, and Asians.
Even when we do our best to prevent acne scars, some people scar. There are many treatment options, which can significantly diminish depressed and raised acne scars.
