Moderate to severe acne can leave unwanted scars long after adolescence. Numerous over-the-counter creams are available to treat scars; however, results are often disappointing. At Capital Laser and Skin Care, laser scar revision and microneedling procedures can assist with flattening scars and helping them blend naturally with surrounding skin. Our dermatologists are recognized experts in the treatment of scars and have helped countless patients look great and feel more confident with acne scar removal procedures.
Laser Scar Removal
Laser scar removal is a popular non-invasive scar treatment option. During the quick procedure, a handheld device delivers light energy to the skin. The energy stimulates the replacement of scar tissue with more normal collagen fibers resulting in smoother skin. After several laser treatments, healthy skin forms and the appearance of scars dramatically improves.
The type of laser used to perform the procedure is customized to meet the needs of the patient. Three incredibly effective lasers used at Capital Laser & Skin Care include:
The most important factors when selecting a laser are the type, size, and location of scars, as well as the color and texture of the skin. Our expert physicians have the training, knowledge, and skill needed to choose a laser that will provide maximum results for every scar and skin type.
Microneedling for scar removal is a relatively new minimally invasive treatment option. During a procedure, one of our specialists uses a handheld microneedling pen to create very tiny wounds on the scarred skin. The body’s response to the procedure is like that of laser scar removal—damaged skin is replaced with healthy skin. In addition, the body naturally increases collagen production to provide long-term results. Our specialists usually perform multiple procedures for maximum results.
