Carlin uses the state-of-the-art CynoSure® PicoSure® laser to smooth away acne scars, leaving you with beautiful clear skin at last.

Acne scars typically develop when you have an inflamed blemish that causes your skin’s pore to swell and rupture its contents. When the rupture occurs in your deeper layers of skin, the bacteria and dead skin start destroying the skin cells nearby. This leads to visible scarring on the skin surface.
Acne scars can be bumpy, pitted, or slightly depressed. No matter what they look like, it definitely detracts from your appearance. Both men and women feel frustrated and embarrassed by their acne scars.
PicoSure acne scar treatments work by triggering your body to heal the damaged skin itself. The picosecond (one-trillionth of a second) laser pulses bypass your healthy skin to reach the deeper skin levels where the problem started.
The PicoSure laser agitates the deepest layers of skin cells, which prompts your body to begin its healing response. Your body starts making collagen, the substance which adds volume, to fill in the sunken areas of the acne scars. Additionally, you’ll make new elastin to add smoothness and firmness to your skin.
Treatments are generally comfortable. Many patients say that the rapid laser pulses feel similar to a quick snap from a rubber band.
It depends on your particular case, but many patients see results in as few as three PicoSure acne scar treatments. Generally, your PicoSure sessions at Wise Choice Tattoo Removal will be about two to six weeks apart. You’ll see increasing improvement with every session!
The number one rule to follow is to avoid popping pimples. This includes any type of picking at your face, as this type of agitation only encourages inflammation and worse damage.
Using a high-quality skin care regimen that’s formulated to fight acne without harsh products can be very helpful, as well. Christie may recommend some additional tips to help you avoid acne scars after clearing your scars with PicoSure laser treatments.
Are acne scars embarrassing you? You’re not alone. Many men and women want to hide their acne scars, but with PicoSure laser treatment at Wise Choice Tattoo Removal, you can remove them instead. Book your appointment online or by phone to get help now.
