Acne Scars Q & A

What are some different options for treating acne scars?

The providers at Precision Aesthetics use a variety of techniques to help reduce the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate your skin in the process.

With modern advancements in laser therapy and corrective technology, Precision Aesthetics can customize the best treatment option for your skin condition. Some of these procedures include laser therapy, radiofrequency microneedling, chemical reconstruction, and incisionless surgery.

How does the Icon laser work for acne scar treatment?

Icon’s proven laser system targets your skin’s sub-layers, deep below the surface of your skin. This is the area commonly damaged by severe acne, leaving you with deep grooves in your skin. With each pulsating microfine laser light, your body starts building new collagen and elastin, while sweeping away old damaged tissues. You’re left with visibly smoother, more even-toned skin, with fewer (if any) acne scars.

Which areas can I have treated for acne scars with Icon?

Icon is FDA cleared for treating acne scars all over your body. It’s beneficial for improving the appearance of skin on your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Shoulders

When will I see results after acne scar treatment?

As collagen and elastin continue building in your skin, you notice a drastic improvement with acne scars. You should start seeing optimal results about a month after your treatment. Because acne scars affect the deep layers of your skin, you probably need several treatments to achieve the best results. A package of three to seven sessions — each about a month apart —  with the Icon laser is most common, but your needs may vary. While the entire process takes months, you should start noticing an improvement every week along the way.

Does laser acne scar treatment hurt?

Not at all. It’s a laser system, so it’s typical to feel some warmth, but you shouldn’t be in any pain. If you have acne scars in sensitive areas, like under your chin, you might experience some discomfort during your treatment. It won’t last more than a few seconds though. If you’re worried about pain or are having discomfort during your Icon laser treatment, talk with your practitioner. He or she can numb your skin with a topical numbing cream to make treatments more pleasant for you.

What else can I have treated with the Icon laser?

Many patients are so pleased with their acne scar-reduction treatment with Icon that they start using these treatments for other issues. The Icon laser system is beneficial for improving the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks or spider veins
  • Facial vessels
  • Skin pigmentation problems
  • Surgical scars

*Individual results may vary.
