According to Yale Medicine, over 25% of women and 12% of men still struggle with acne in their 40’s. Acne often causes scarring that is difficult to combat, but there are a couple of acne scar removal methods that are proven to be successful.
Fraxel Re:store Laser
The Fraxel Re:store Dual laser is a 3rd generation Fraxel laser that precisely targets microscopic areas of the skin. It uses focused laser columns to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. The Fraxel Laser penetrates beyond the skin’s surface. Fraxel treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing process by replacing damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. Fraxel treatments are proven to treat stubborn acne scars.

Epidermal Leveling exfoliates the top layer of the skin, polishing the surface and correcting flaws caused by acne scars, darkened pigmentation, or aging. As the skin’s upper surface is removed during this process, the fine hairs on the face are also removed. With this treatment, the skin’s surface looks smoother, polished, and refined. This is an alternative to treatments such as laser resurfacing and harsh chemical peels.
Pixel8 utilizes microneedles and bi-polar RF energy to heat skin layers deep beneath the surface. This heat helps the skin’s elastin cells to regenerate. It also helps activate the skin’s natural collagen resources. The result is skin that is firmer with fewer fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Besides being minimally invasive, other benefits of the Pixel8 treatment include that there is little downtime and the results can be quite impressive. It is effective for a variety of skin types.
