How Does Acne Scarring Treatment Work?
TLC Acne and Rosacea Treatment Center utilizes the non-ablative fractional LaseMD thulium laser, the fractional ablative CoolPeel CO2 Tetra laser and the Morpheus8 microneedling with fractional radiofrequency for the treatment of acne scarring. The choice of treatment depends on the the depth and severity of the scarring. For superficial acne scarring we recommend the LaseMD non-ablative fractional laser ( multiple sessions required) or the ablative fractional CoolPeel CO2 laser while for medium to moderately deep scars Morpheus8 microneedling RF produces better results. In the case the scarring is very deep, we prefer to combine the power of the ablative fractional CoolPeel CO2 laser with the Morpheus8 microneedling RF within the same session for optimal improvement. Whatever the treatment of choice it is, it always involves repeated multiple sessions spaced out about 4 weeks apart .
The multiple sessions protocol aligns with the concept of stimulating collagen in the skin- a process which can take, on average, 3 to 6 months. It is the the newly created collagen that fills in and plumps up the acne scarring from within while appearing smoother, softer, and less pronounced.
