Laser and Light Treatments

Palomar Icon™ 1540 fractional laser treatments soften the appearance of acne scars without harming the skin’s surface. In most cases, a series of treatments is required for optimal results.

Photofacial (aka Intense Pulsed Light ) treatments can reduce the appearance of skin inflammation and acne scars. These treatments are often combined with Palomar Icon 1540 fractional laser treatments for best results.

Microneedling Treatments

Morpheus8 Radio-Frequency enhanced Microneedling treatments can be used to stimulate collagen production to reduce the depth of acne scars as well as reduce the amount of acne causing bacteria in the effected area to reduce the re-occurrence of cystic acne.

Morpheus 8 treatments can also be used to soften and flatten the appearance of  surgical or injury related scars anywhere on the body with minimal downtime.

These treatments can be combined with Photofacial (IPL) laser treatments to reduce the appearance of skin inflammation and pigmented acne scars.

Our therapeutic line treats a wide range of skin disorders and chronic conditions that dramatically improve acne-prone or scarred skin.
