Acne Scars

At LightRx, we know how difficult dealing with acne can be. From redness and inflammation to the lingering scars it may leave behind, we understand that you want to get back to your clear complexion as soon as possible. That’s why we offer acne scar treatment through laser skin resurfacing and skin rejuvenation. Whether your goal is to clear your skin or you’re ready to try anti-aging treatments like skin tightening, we’re here to help.

This webpage will cover both of those medspa treatments and the technology we utilize for those treatments. You will also find the answers to the most frequently asked questions that our staff of cosmetic professionals hear about these treatments.

What Is Acne Scar Treatment?

Acne scar treatment is a medical spa treatment that uses lasers, radiofrequency energy, and other advanced technologies to reduce the appearance of scars left behind by acne. This may include everything from redness and inflammation to deep scarring caused by severe breakouts and cystic acne.

How Laser Skin Resurfacing Can Help You with Acne Scar Treatment

Laser skin resurfacing (also known as laser resurfacing) is an advanced treatment option that uses high-powered lasers to refresh the top layer of skin, promoting healing and new collagen growth in the affected area. This can help reduce redness, inflammation, and other symptoms of acne scars and dead skin cells, allowing you to achieve smoother, clearer skin. 

Laser resurfacing is safe for all types of acne scars, including depressed scars. It works for all skin types and skin tones, including lighter skin.

How Skin Rejuvenation Can Help You with Acne Scar Treatment

Skin rejuvenation covers a variety of non-invasive options for treating acne scars. Treatments involve skin care, radio frequency technology, and ultrasound technology to encourage new  collagen production in the affected area. It helps to reduce inflammation, diminish redness, and other symptoms of acne scars, and leave your skin looking smoother and healthier. 

Skin rejuvenation is also safe for all types of acne scars including depressed scars, as well as all skin types and skin tones including lighter skin.
