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.

Dr Stong is the ONLY Plastic Surgeon you should see, if you want the look that you have always dreamed of. I came to Dr Stong highly dissatisfied from a previous Rhinoplasty, and I was in need of a revision surgery to enhance my facial structure. From the first day I met Dr Stong he LISTENED to what I wanted and helped to design the perfect nose for me. His kind clinical team walked me through every step leading up to my surgery. The surgery and recovery went easy and I was back to my normal activities after a few weeks. It has only been a few months but I look and feel amazing. I get compliments all the time!!!! People stop me on the street to comment on how wonderful I look, and I am not ashamed to say that it's all because of Dr Stong. Dr stong didn't just enhance my looks-he changed my LIFE. Please call his office for an appointment today. You won't regret it!

I was very nervous at the thought of rhinoplasty. So nervous that it took me over 20 years to finally go through with it. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best doctor for this job. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. His specialty is facial surgery and Dr.Stong is up to date on the latest surgery techniques. He and his staff are kind and genuinely concerned. My calls are always answered by one of his staff and Dr. Stong is seeing me regularly for months to come to ensure that I am healing as expected. My nose looks very natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

I went today to get non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. stong did a great job. I also had a consultation about a surgical rhinoplasty, he showed me how it would look like the before and after and I plan on getting it done by him when the juvederm in my nose is gone completely. The moment you walk in everyone is very nice and welcoming. I've been to other places for lip injections but I think Kalos is going to be my go to from now on.

Dr. Stong delivered exactly what I was looking for with my blepharoplasty. The results were suttle yet significant. People no longer ask me if I'm tired. Mission accomplished.

I was really nervous even considering cosmetic surgery, but it had been becoming increasingly obvious that my youthful glow had dimmed. All the typical bad decisions we make in our youth, sunbathing without sunscreen and years of smoking had taken its toll. I was lucky to find Dr. Stong. He was referred to me by my Dermatopathologist Dr. Dirk Robertson. Dr Stong is a no nonsense type physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I’m still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon to have a facelift and blepharoplasty. The office and staff were excellent! I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Stong is a kind and compassionate doctor and skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family!

I met Dr Stong when I had to have my basal cell reconstruction on the tip of my nose. He and his caring staff were there every step of the way. I then decided to have a facelift and once again had a wonderful experience! He is well trained in both areas. I would definitely recommend him! Judith Hoffman
