These scars are caused by trauma from acne – a condition that begins as an irritation deep within a hair follicle or pore that disrupts the skin’s smooth structure. A scar is formed from the healing of damage that acne creates. Because the source of the scar is deep, photoacoustic lasers are an ideal treatment option.
Our laser uses photoacoustic energy to target the source of the scar, stimulating the body to produce more collagen and smooth the depression. Acne scars typically require at least 4 to 6 treatment sessions in order to achieve optimal results.
