Laser Acne Scar Removal
PicoSure Acne Scar Treatment
The FDA has approved the PicoSure System for Acne Treatment. And we are one of only a few laser centers in North Carolina to offer this groundbreaking technology!
Acne may not cause extreme social anxiety anymore, but acne scars and pock marks from your teenage years may still cause your skin to look bumpy and uneven. Using PicoSure's noninvasive laser technology, the appearance of acne scars can be significantly faded to restore the skin's youthful appearance.
Now the same laser that has shown to be super-effective for Laser Tattoo Removal has also been proven to be effective at removing acne scars.
How Does Laser Scar Removal Work?
PicoSure uses a revolutionary picosecond laser to target acne scars and create areas of affected tissues. PressureWave laser pulses activate the body's collagen and elastin production mechanisms to create new, healthy skin cells that replace laser-damaged areas and scar tissues. PicoSure laser scar removal does not harm the surrounding skin, revealing impressive results in very little time. PicoSure laser treatments are safe for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin.
What to Expect During PicoSure Acne Scar Removal
Reducing the appearance of acne scars is fast, with most treatment sessions lasting about 30 minutes. Most scars will require three to five sessions to be healed. PicoSure laser scar removal is not painful and anesthetic is not usually required. Laser scar treatments have few side effects including some temporary redness and swelling at the site of the scar. Patients are typically able to resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
