Acne Scar Treatment Q & A

The professionals at Best Care Clinic use the Icon 1540 nonablative fractional laser tool to focus concentrated light energy on dense scar tissue to break it apart at the cellular level. The laser stimulates your circulatory and lymphatic drainage systems, which gradually clear the damaged scar tissue away as part of your natural immune function. In addition, the laser triggers the production of collagen and elastin within your skin; these proteins create smooth, firm skin in the treated area.

Which areas can be treated to improve acne scars?

The aesthetics professionals at Best Care Clinic most commonly treat acne scarring in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Upper back
  • Chest

The Icon system is FDA-approved to treat acne scars anywhere on the body. The precision settings on the Icon allow your specialist to treat even the most delicate skin areas without damaging your skin’s surface.

How many acne scar reduction treatments will I need?

Your Best Care Clinic expert will design a treatment plan based on your individual needs and goals. In most cases, a series of 3-7 treatments spaced about one month apart are needed for best results.

You can expect to notice that your acne scars look lighter in color and that your skin is smoother in the treated area about one month after your first treatment. Results will continue to develop for several months, and you should notice more improvement each week during this period.*

What should I expect during an acne scar removal treatment?

Icon laser treatments for acne scarring typically take about 30 minutes. You may feel some gentle warmth, but this isn’t usually uncomfortable. If you have sensitive skin, or your acne scars are located in a sensitive area, you can ask your specialist to use a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable during the procedure.

Is there any downtime?

Acne scar treatments with the Icon laser system are nonsurgical and noninvasive, so there’s no downtime required following your treatment. You may have some mild swelling and redness in the treated area, but this usually resolves within a day or two.
