Fractional Laser Resurfacing (1540)
Fractional Laser Resurfacing, or 1540, is an acne scar treatment option is non-ablative and non-invasive. It provides skin resurfacing and collagen rejuvenation to make your skin texture noticeably smoother. The treatment involves a laser that penetrates deep under your skin to rebuild large imperfections and improve even severe damage. Fractional laser resurfacing is safer than other laser technology and results in minimal downtime while still delivering plumper, healthier skin. This acne scar treatment method can be used safely on very light to very dark skin and can effectively treat both old and new acne scars (as well as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, surgical scars, stretch marks and more!)
Microneedling to Treat Acne Scars
Microneedling is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedure. This effective acne scar treatment method is also known as collagen induction therapy because it stimulates the production of collagen. We will treat your skin and infuse it with a hyaluronic acid serum, which is rich in copper, zinc, and magnesium. Vitamin C therapy is also available. Microneedling increases skin elasticity and diminishes the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, deep wrinkles, surgical scars, stretch marks, and more. This treatment can be performed on nearly any area of your body and is ideal for men and women wanting younger looking skin with fewer imperfections. The intensity of this procedure is completely customizable and downtime ranges from one to seven days.
MaxG Acne Scar Treatment
MaxG is a high-intensity light technology that’s safe and effective for acne scar treatment. This procedure is offered at our dermatology office in Fort Collins, CO. The laser uses an intense but safe beam of light to remove red and brown spots without damaging the surrounding tissue. This makes it an ideal choice for the lingering red to purple discoloration in your acne scars. MaxG can remove redness from acne scars as well as other types of scars and stretch marks. It can also treat and reduce active acne! Get rid of those stubborn reds by adding MaxG to your acne, antiaging, or rosacea regimen.
Restylane is an effective acne scar treatment that can give your skin plumpness, volume, and hydration. This option uses a natural sugar already present in your skin and can fill acne scars to increase fullness. This treatment lasts for about six to 18 months and can be repeated. Contact us to learn about saving money on this procedure through Galderma’s ASPIRE program or various sales and promotions throughout the year.
Chemical Peels & Surgical Removal of Acne Scars
Divine Dermatology also utilizes chemical peels to treat acne scars at our offices in Fort Collins and Loveland, CO. This tried and true in-office treatment targets acne, sun spots, fine lines, melasma, and more. We can customize the intensity, which will impact your downtime after the procedure. Select acne scars may also be surgically removed. Large depressed scars can be physically cut out before sealing the edges of the skin with stitches. A new scar is formed up to the surface level of the skin, making the acne scars appear less noticeable.
