Acne Scarring Treatment

Acne scarring is one of the toughest skin problems out there.

Louisville facelifts will not help.

The skin has to be resurfaced and the best technique is a CO-2 laser. The CO-2 laser is the “grand daddy” of all resurfacing lasers. A number of newer less powerful non-ablative lasers have hit the market since the CO-2 was invented, but none are capable of fully treating acne scarring. In fact, some patients will require repeat treatments even after a CO-2 laser session.

This type of treatment is typically done in the OR. The procedure takes about 45 minutes and anesthesia is required. After surgery you will need about 7-10 days of fairly vigilant care for your skin while everything heals.
