Acne scarring can make anyone feel uncomfortable with their appearance, and many acne medications do not address them. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we have both microneedling and laser acne scar treatments that help to minimize and even eliminate them.
Radiofrequency microneedling is one of the newest solutions in mild acne scarring treatment. Using tiny needles, microneedling penetrates the skin’s surface to create micro-injuries and then the radiofrequency adds heat to the lowest part of the skin. The treatments promotes the growth of collagen in the skin, which heals the skin over time to create a smoother-looking appearance.
2. Fraxel® Dual Laser
The Fraxel® Dual Laser is a non-ablative laser treatment that can help reduce the appearance of stubborn acne scars. Non-ablative lasers heat the surface underneath the skin and help accelerate the process of collagen.
3. Halo™ Laser
The third acne scarring treatment is the Halo™ Laser, which uses ablative and non-ablative targeted light technology to resurface the top layer of skin. Not only can the Halo™ Laser minimize and eliminate scarring, but it also can reduce the size of pores. Because the treatment is more involved, Dr. Shah, Dr. Tanzi, or Dr. Peters will apply an anesthetic before beginning.
Which treatment is right for you depends on how deep your acne scarring is and if you are able to have downtime. For laser treatments, generally, fairer patients are more ideal candidates. Darker skin patients often opt for RF microneedling treatment for acne scarring. Dr. Tanzi and her team of physicians will discuss your customizable treatment during your consultation.
Capital laser and skin care is the best dermatology practice I’ve ever been to. I’ve seen both Dr. Peters and Dr. Tanzi, who are both extremely intelligent, caring, highly skilled, practical – and gorgeous! The staff is excellent – very caring, skilled, excellent training, professional, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Capital Laser to anyone seeking to take fabulous care of their skin. You will be in the best hands here.
