Scars & Acne Scars

Breakthrough in scar treatment

Combining PicoSure® laser with the new Infini high intensity fractionated RF micro-needling technology provides our patients results that could not be achieved before.

Picosure stretches and softens the "knots" in the damaged scar tissue. The RF micro-needling treatment follows two weeks later, breaks the “knots” further and starts the process of collagen regeneration, which takes 3-6 months. The desired results are usually achieved in 2-4 treatments and downtime is minimal.

Results are visible 4 weeks after treatment yet the scar surface becomes more even with the rest of the skin, and the overall skin texture improves to further reduce the contrast between the scar and the surrounding skin over the following 3-6 months.

Scar Treatment

True acne scars can only be improved by removing the top layers of the skin and letting the skin build a new surface combined with maximum collagen production from underneath. This can be best achieved by CO2 laser resurfacing. The laser assures precise depth of abrasion, thereby minimizing complications that were common with dermabrasion (not microdermabrasion), such as permanent pigment change.

Deep pitted scars require punch grafts 4-6 weeks prior the laser procedure for maximum fill. Nowadays, fillers can be used to bolster scars. Often, acne scars may be preventable if acne treatment is started early.
