Having moderate to severe acne as a teen or as an adult can be a constant source of embarrassment. Unfortunately, even when the acne clears up, it can often leave scarring on areas of the face. These scars can also cause negative effects on your self-worth and leave you embarrassed in social situations. At Avalon Laser, we offer various treatments to eliminate acne scars and help you feel good about the way you look again.
Our goal is to help you look and feel your best. That's why we offer different treatments to help scarring and facial irregularities so that we can personalize your treatment to successfully address your specific needs. If you're looking for safe and effective acne scar treatments, we offer:
- Laser scar removal: Laser skin resurfacing uses a fractional CO2 laser that is applied to the deep levels of the skin to stimulate new collagen growth. The newly formed collagen fills in facial scars and provides a more, even smoother facial appearance. The procedure also removes the top layer of skin, exposing the healthy skin underneath.
- Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is great for mild acne scars. During the procedure, dead skin cells are removed, triggering the body to heal itself. However, to achieve your desired results, several treatment sessions may be required.
- Photofacial: This procedure is accomplished by applying intense pulse light to the skin. The skin then regenerates over a few days, thereby removing facial and acne scars.
- Chemical peels: This treatment cleans the skin, opens the pores and removes the top superficial layers of skin. It is an excellent scar removal option for patients who have mild to moderate acne scars.
