Laser Treatment

The light emitted from the laser targets the overactive sebaceous glands helps reduce the total number and severity of active lesions and lessens the inflammation and occurrence of breakouts. The light stimulates the production of new collagen to improve skin texture, and can reduce the appearance of red or brown areas of skin that are often associated with acne breakouts.

Immediately after treatment, the skin may appear red and a warm tingling sensation may be felt. Typically the skin is cooled to ease any discomfort and a calming gel is applied. The treated area can become quite red immediately after treatment but this usually disappears within a couple of hours. Most people experience no other side effects but very rarely a small blister could form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.

TCA Cross

TCA Cross is the most effective treatment for safely treating deep acne scars. This procedure covers the base of a scar with a very small amount of highly concentrated trichloracetic acid (TCA). During the treatment the interior lining of the scar undergoes a chemical peeling process and new collagen forms in the scar, decreasing its depth and severity. A small scab develops and then falls off after 3 to 7 days. This treatment can be repeated at 4 to 8-week intervals.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are the preferred method for rolling scars. It’s important to use a filler that doesn’t absorb too much water and is moderately cross linked. During placement, a modified subcision is performed to release underlying tethers. Minimal bruising and swelling settle promptly. Results have great longevity due to a local increase in collagen production, secondary to both trauma and dermal filler.


Platelet-rich plasma is rich with cytokines and growth factors, which work together to regenerate and stimulate the production of new collagen and help reduce the appearance of scars.
