Fractional Resurfacing For Stubborn Acne Scars

Severe acne can often leave its mark for years in the form of red, purplish or atrophic scars (commonly referred to as depressed or “ice pick” scars or pockmarks). Luckily, a series of fractional resurfacing treatments like Fraxel re:store laser can remove this damaged tissue and produce fresh, healthy skin.

FDA-approved for treating both acne and surgical scars, it works by using microscopic laser light to target specific areas below the skin's surface. The laser stimulates a natural healing process below the skin, jump-starting collagen production and allowing new skin to emerge.

Several sessions may be required to address the entire surface of the skin. Post-procedure, redness and swelling may occur for a couple days.
