acne scar treatment before and after

Written by Dr. Ringpfeil

Deep FX - Fractional CO2 Laser

A carbon dioxide laser delivers accurate removal of minute, deep columns of skin with the highest degree of skin tightening available today. Fractionating this proven technique drastically reduces downtime compared to the traditional method as the skin surface is barely altered.

Expected results:

Skin tightening, elimination or softening of wrinkles, treatment of acne scars.

Preparation:

Vigorous regimen of daily sunscreens and night time retinoids for several months, no alcohol and aspirin for 2 weeks prior to the procedure, vitamin C 1000 mg daily starting 2 weeks prior to the treatment. Topical anesthesia is unnecessary.

Post treatment instructions:

Rigorous sun avoidance/protection for 3 months, refrain from alcohol consumption for 2 weeks after the treatment, avoid aspirin for 10 days, continue vitamin C 1000 mg daily for 3 months. Skin care in the immediate postoperative period includes the use of a very gentle non-soap cleanser, petrolatum until skin renewal sets in (1-2 days), oral medications to prevent herpes reactivation and bacterial super infection. Topical retinoids can be resumed when scabbing subsides (1-2 days after treatment).

Up to 3 days for healing, up to 6 months for skin tightening (maximum collagen production).

The doctor and her Medical Assistant are very thorough and they take time to explain everything that you need to understand.

Dr. Ringpfeil is extremely knowledgeable about her field. She also put me at ease immediatley and made me feel quite at home. I will definatley return once a year for her to check me. Her assistant and the receptionists were most helpful and very nice and more than happy to comply with their patients' wishes. Should anyone be searching for a dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Ringpfeil.
