Acne & Acne Scars

As an adult with acne, I felt so self conscious. I kept on waiting for it to clear but it never did, until I came to Reflections. There were so many diffenrnt options for treatment and that made me feel good because I thought I had a bad case. *

Laser therapy for acne treatment

For many of our patients, living with acne and acne scars is a lifelong struggle. We know that your acne symptoms not only affect the way you look — they affect the way you feel about yourself. Living with acne or acne scars can result in depression, low self-esteem, or social isolation. It may even hold you back from reaching your professional goals.

Fast and virtually pain-free, laser therapy requires minimal or no downtime. Proven to transform the appearance of skin that has been altered by acne or acne scars¹, laser therapy can be fast, comfortable, and life changing. We’re confident that you will love the results!

Reflections customized approach to treating acne and acne scars

Because we know that your skin is as unique as you are, the physicians at Reflections will work closely with you to customize the best acne treatment for your skin type and the type of acne or acne scars that you have. In addition to acne laser treatment, your treatment plan may include more traditional acne treatment options such as topical or oral medications, dermal filler injections, chemical peels, and dermabrasion, that together work to improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin.

Tackle acne head-on with the best acne treatment

Many people think acne is caused by stress, poor diet or hygiene, or that it’s just an inevitable part of growing up, or that teens should just suffer through it. Or, that there is no hope for people living with acne. None of this is true.

Imagine not having to hide away because you feel bad about your skin’s appearance.

Acne is caused when high levels of specific hormones in the body stimulate the sebaceous glands producing an overabundance of oil, resulting in clogged glands. Bacteria set in, leading to inflammation and the appearance of pimples, clogged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), and cysts on the skin. Acne occurs on the skin over many parts of the body including the face, chest, and back.

While acne affects a majority of teens, many adults suffer from this condition. With adult onset acne it is important to look for the underlying cause of acne when it occurs for the first time. It’s important to treat acne early, as it can cause significant and lasting scarring if left unchecked.

Fortunately, we have many powerful options when designing the best acne treatment plan for you, including advanced technologies like the Smoothbeam laser, Isolaz, Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), the Vbeam Perfecta laser, and more.

Dealing with acne scars where they form

Acne scars vary greatly in type and degree from one patient to another. They may appear flat or depressed and range in color from red to white, or match your natural skin color. They may be fairly well localized or generalized and may develop at any age. As our skin naturally loses volume and elasticity as we age, acne scars, so if left untreated acne scars will look worse over time.

Laser acne scar treatment works by stimulating collagen production, smoothing out your skin, and restoring its appearance and texture. Our physicians have the knowledge and expertise to choose the laser therapy that is right for you.

We offer the very latest treatments in the fight against acne scars, including Fraxel Re:Store, Fraxel Re:Pair, Vbeam Perfecta, eTwo, and many other technologies that and techniques that will leave your skin smoother and more supple.
