The formation of scars is a normal reaction of the skin in response to inflammation or an injury. Furthermore, ‘picking’ at active acne lesions can also increase the likelihood of developing acne scars.

There are 4 main types of acne scars:

  • Atrophic scars – flat, shallow depressions that heal below the top layer of skin, commonly caused by severe cystic acne.
  • Ice pick scars – small, deep holes in the surface of your skin that look like the skin has been punctured with a sharp object. These scars are common on the cheeks.
  • Rolling scars – most common type of acne scar. They’re shallow, wide, and have sloping edges and tend to get more noticeable with age.
  • Box scars – are larger indentations with clear edges.


Lasers are a safe, technologically advanced means of improving the appearance of your skin. We use medical-grade, FDA approved laser technology to clear your skin of cells that have been damaged by acne. They also activate your body’s natural healing process, stimulating the growth of new cells.

Peels helps keep the pores clean, to reduce the appearance of blackheads.

Microneedling helps break up clusters of hyperpigmented cells, and stimulates the body’s healing response, which in turn boosts production of collagen. Special serums can also be used during treatment, to deliver healthy ingredients deep into the skin via channels created by the tiny needles.

Dermal filler involves injecting a substance, such as hyaluronic acid to improve the appearance.


There are safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment options for acne scars. Some of the most popular in-office procedures include lasers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, fillers etc

Microneedling, Chemical peels, Fractional Ablative laser and Non-Ablative lasers such as Morpheus 8, Clear and Brilliant, Dermapen, blunt cannula subcision and fillers.

Treatment FAQ’s
What Is Acne?

Acne is caused when pores of your skin become clogged with bacteria, oil or dead skin. Each pore on your skin directly leads to a hair follicle and an oil gland. These oil glands release sebum which travels via the hair to the pore onto the skin surface.
