Acne can affect both teenagers and adults alike, often with lasting effects. For starters having acne can make building self-esteem quite challenging. Often times after your acne clears up, you are left behind with visible scarring. But, you don’t need to live with these scars for the rest of your life. With modern laser technology, acne scar removal is more effective than ever.
Acne scar removal begins with visiting an expert in the field. When you visit Simi Doctors, you receive only the highest quality of treatment and care. We work closely with each patient to identify your needs, and then we meet them. We believe every patient deserves to have skin that is clear, skin they can be proud of.
What Is Acne Scar Removal?
Our approach to acne is twofold. We focus on prevention through acne treatment, which seeks to control and lessen acne breakouts. But we also understand that many patients might not have had access to the treatment they needed.
If you have scars caused by acne, we can help. Using the advanced Icon laser by Cynosure, we deliver safe and effective acne scar removal treatment to patients in the Simi Valley area. Laser acne removal is a non-invasive treatment that uses only the natural healing power of light energy to restore your skin to a healthier state.
We use the laser to break down scar tissue while encouraging your body to replace it with healthy skin tissue. With each treatment, you will watch as your body slowly rejuvenates and improves. There isn’t a single incision involved at any step. Everything is non-invasive.
Each treatment is quick and comfortable. There is no need for general anesthesia, which means less strain for your body. You can have your treatment and get back to your daily life right away. We, at most, use only a light topical anesthetic to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the entire process.
Is Laser Acne Removal Right for Me?
Almost any patient who has unwanted acne scarring can benefit from this treatment. However, it is important to first have a consultation with one of our doctors to find what treatment is best for you. During your personal consultation, we meet with each patient individually to discuss their goals and needs.
Depending on your unique situation, we put together a treatment plan entirely shaped to match your needs. We also cover every aspect of the treatment and provide you with a clear understanding of what results you can expect.
Laser acne treatment yields the most optimal results for patients with less scarring. In many cases, it can fully remove scars and restore a clear appearance to your skin. For patients with deeper scarring, it can still be a huge improvement for your skin. We can significantly lessen the appearance of acne.
Health is a precious gift and prevention is the best medicine
Acne Removal Results
Laser acne removal can benefit many patients with acne scarring. However, each treatment will be different. Some patients may require a series of treatments before they begin to see results that match their goals. This applies to patients with extensive and deep acne scarring.
Most patients, however, will see results after only a couple of sessions. You will see immediate improvements, but it is important to remember that your final results will take some time to appear. Each laser treatment further encourages your body to continue healing on its own. As the weeks pass, you will continue to see more and more improvements in your skin.
The good news is once the scarring is gone, it is gone for good. However, to achieve optimal results, we advise following all of our post-treatment instructions to properly care for your skin.
Is There Any Downtime?
One of the advantages of non-surgical acne removal is that you have almost no downtime. While surgical acne removal is useful, it also requires days to weeks spent recovering. Non-surgical methods allow you to achieve outstanding results without interruptions in your daily life.
Most patients report only minor redness or swelling after each treatment. However, even this subsides within a couple of days. In general, you will be able to return to your daily life and routine almost immediately. If you have any questions or concerns at any point during your treatment, don’t hesitate to ask. We are committed to providing an informative and comfortable process every step of the way.
