Scar Treatment FAQ
How does laser scar treatment work?
Unlike surgery, laser acne scar treatment uses ultra-short pulses of laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime.
What types of scars can be treated?
Laser acne scar treatment is FDA-cleared for acne scars on any area of the body, including the face.
How long does it take?
The treatment can be performed in as little as 15 minutes or less, depending on the size of the targeted area.
