Acne Scars

Acne is something many people can’t control or get rid of and then are left with scars for years to come, even after their acne clears up. If you had acne and perhaps didn’t have access to the right treatments or your skin didn’t respond well to the treatments you tried and you want to lessen the appearance of your acne scars, FirstCare Medical Center can help.

At Essence MediSpa, the cosmetic dermatology branch of our practice, we use the revolutionary Lumenis ResurFX to treat acne scars as well as lines from aging and the appearance of large pores. This laser treatment penetrates the top layer of skin, reaching the deeper layers and stimulating collagen production. New collagen will help restore your skin and create that youthful look you have been hoping for.

A treatment is so simple that Lumenis likes to call it a “lunch-time treatment” because it only takes 15-30 minutes per treatment—short enough to receive over a lunch break. Even after just one treatment, patients will notice a difference in the dimensions of their pores. And patients can see a noticeable difference in the texture of their skin, including the appearance of acne scars, in just three to five treatments. We recommend spacing these treatments one month apart for optimal results. Treatments create results that last up to six months after the last treatment. Luckily the treatments are so quick and easy that maintenance isn’t a hassle. To see some incredible before and after pictures, just visit our webpage.

If you are anxious about what to expect after your treatment, there is no need! There may be some swelling and redness after the treatment but you should be able to go back to your regular routine by the next day. It might feel like a mild sunburn but the feeling should go away within a few days. And then just like with every patient, we recommend you wear 15 or 30 SPF sunscreen daily to prevent further skin damage.

If you are tired of feeling embarrassed about your acne scars, contact us today at FirstCare Medical Center and schedule your first skin resurfacing treatment.
