Do You Suffer From Acne Scars?
If you have acne scars, they may make you feel like you’re still suffering from breakouts – even though they’re long gone. Acne scars come in all shapes and sizes, but they can all make you feel just as self-conscious about your skin as you did when you had actual acne. While acne scars can fade over the years, the truth is that if you want results in months, it’s time to get the help of a more advanced treatment.

What is Acne Scar Removal?
Acne scar removal is an innovative procedure that uses the power of fractional lasers to encourage faster cellular turnover. Due to the fact that acne scars can go deep within the dermis, the truth is that surface-level treatments – like creams and scrubs – will only do so much. The most effective treatments focus on accelerating cellular turnover, which helps fade the appearance of even the deepest acne scars.

How Does Acne Scar Removal Work?
Acne scar removal can be done via fractional laser technology. This technology works by making a matrix of tiny holes in the epidermis (top layer of skin) and penetrating deep into the dermis (underlying tissue). During this process, columns of damaged tissue are targeted while keeping the surrounding tissue intact, allowing for quicker recovery. Following treatment, the body immediately sets into “healing mode,” in which new collagen and healthy, scarless skin cells are born. The end result is a rejuvenated and more youthful complexion, with faded acne scarring.
What treatment options are available for Acne Scars?
At Pure Beauty, we can offer three different technologies to treat and fade acne scars, including:
Am I a Good Candidate for Acne Scar Removal?
You’re a good candidate for acne scar removal if you have red or purple scarring left over from previous breakouts. Acne scar removal can also treat “ice pick” scarring, which occurs when the scar creates a deep pocket within the dermis.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
A typical treatment takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the area(s) being targeted and the type of scarring that’s being treated.
What Results Will I See?*
You should begin to see results about one to two months after your initial round of fractional laser treatments. Your results will largely depend on the number of treatments you undergo, as well as the color and age of your acne scars.
Is There Any Downtime?
Patients should allow for some “social downtime.” Skin will take on a sunburned look immediately following treatment and there may be temporary swelling. Patients will be sent home with a set of post-care instructions, as well as ointment that can help speed up the healing process.
