Atlanta Acne Scar Treatment
The K Spa offers a variety of treatment options for patients with acne scarring. We understand the difficult nature of treating acne scars and offer various treatments depending on the severity and depth of individual scars. For more severe, deep acne scarring, we have found patients achieve the best results with our Cutera Pearl Fusion laser. This semi-ablative laser treatment works on a deep level to resurface the skin, smoothing out irregular texture that is caused by scarring. For mild to moderate acne scarring, we recommend patients undergo either individual or a combination of Laser Genesis treatments, microneedling, and chemical peels. Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment with no downtime. Chemical peels work to address superficial textural irregularities and can help smooth out superficial acne scars. Dr. Benjamin Stong, our supervising physician, also performs filler injections for depressed scarring.
Acne Scar Intensive Laser Treatment
The Cutera Pearl Fractional treatment is an excellent option for patients with moderate to severe acne scarring. This intensive laser treatment is able to penetrate to the dermal layer of skin, helping to resurface textural irregularities caused by scarring. The treatment is so strong that many patients achieve the desired result in just one treatment. Because of the strength of the treatment, full healing will occur ten to fourteen days after treatment. Patients should plan to consult with our staff prior to undergoing the Pearl Fractional treatment to ensure they are candidates, and to go over the treatment information in detail.
For patients with mild to moderate acne scars, we recommend Laser Genesis. This treatment is non-invasive and has no downtime. Patients can do this treatment on their lunch break and return to normal activities. The Laser Genesis treatment works to even out the appearance of scarring by generating heat on the dermal layer of the skin, which encourages collagen formation. To see full results, patients should plan on completing six treatments. As with all treatments at the K Spa, we recommend a consultation with our expert staff to see which option is best.
Profound Acne Removal with RF Microneedling
To diminish acne scars and improve the overall appearance of the skin, Profound RF microneedling is one of the very best choices. This procedure uses radio frequency (RF) energy applied to the skin through a hand-held microneedling device. The treatment places the RF energy at the right depth in the skin to stimulate increased collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production, which rejuvenatess the skin filling in acne scars. One treatment is all that is needed, with results noticeable in a few weeks, and maximum improvements at six to nine months. The skin heals and rejuvenates, reducing acne scars, tightening skin, minimizing pores and improving the overall health of the skin. Profound can also be paired with other treatments like chemical peels or laser treatments. Profound is also safe in all skin types, whcih is an added benefit for patients with darker skin.
Acne Scar Removal
The K Spa is pleased to offer several treatments designed to minimize the appearance of acne scars. Aside from laser treatments, we recommend chemical peels to help smooth and even acne scarring. We have several different chemical peel options, and we recommend our moderate to intense peels in order to help treat acne scarring. The aftereffects will vary depending on the type of peel selected. Normally, a series of peels is recommended for best results, but the number of peels will depend on the type of peel and degree of acne scarring. We recommend patients come in for a consultation with our doctor and medical aesthetician in order to select the most effective treatment for their individual needs. We may also make product recommendations for the patient to use before and after undergoing chemical peel treatments for optimum results.
