Acne Scars Q & A

Will acne scars go away after regular acne treatment?

No, because acne scars are very different than the acne that comes before them. While acne can sometimes be treated successfully with creams or other topical products, acne scars simply don’t respond to surface-only treatments.

To reduce or remove acne scars, you need to break up the rough scar tissue and then replace it with healthy new skin cells. That’s exactly what the Cynosure Icon laser does, and that’s why it’s the preferred acne scar reduction method at CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics.

How does Icon acne scar treatment work?

The Icon system’s fractional infrared light laser breaks down surface scar tissue so you can dispose of it naturally over time through lymphatic system processes. The Icon laser also creates tiny holes in the collagen under your skin, which triggers your body to make more collagen.

The collagen moves upwards to push your freshly exposed new skin cells to the surface, creating smooth skin where there were once acne scars. The Icon laser doesn’t harm your healthy skin in any way. Your CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics care provider focuses only on the scar tissue that needs removal, so it’s a very safe and effective way to deal with acne scars.

How many acne scar reduction sessions do I need?

It depends on your particular acne scars, but most men and women enjoy good results with a series of around 3-7 treatment sessions. Your treatment sessions are as short as 30 minutes each, so they’re easy to fit into your day. There’s also no downtime at all.

How can I prevent acne scars from returning?

There are a few things you can do to reduce your chances of acne scars in the future. Don’t pop pimples, pick at your skin, or use harsh chemicals on your face. It’s also important to use quality skin care products that discourage acne formation.

Many men and women also find that regular skin revitalization treatments at CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics can really help them maintain their great results after acne scar reduction.
