In Los Angeles acne scar removal can be achieved through individualized treatment plans based on the variation of the individual’s scars. Most facial acne scars can be treated successfully using Coolaser Laser Resurfacing , the preferred method of Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Simon Ourion of Epione in Beverly Hills. This treatment is recognized by many specialists as the best answer for treating acne scars of the facial area.
Alternatives to Coolaser Laser Resurfacing might be Microdermabrasion, Topical Creams, Chemical Peels, and Injectable Fillers.
In Los Angeles laser acne treatment with the Coolaser involves safely and precisely removing the damaged topmost layer of the skin, in order to diminish the look of acne scars. The procedure takes about an hour. First, the entire face is numbed, using a topical cream. Then a beam of light removes the outermost layer of the skin. Though healing takes 10 to 12 days, a 60% to 80% improvement may be expected depending on the type and extent of scarring. A single session may not treat the acne scars entirely if they are too deep. These deeper acne scars can be corrected by injections under the skin. The injections are typically done with dermal fillers such as Radiesse, Juvéderm or Restylane. Your physician will be able to outline if Coolaser Laser Resurfacing alone will treat the acne scars or if a combination of Coolaser Laser Resurfacing and Injections are needed in your initial consultation. Currently, Coolaser Laser Resurfacing is one of the best treatments for acne scars, but it might not remove every blemish. It is important to discuss your goals with your doctor and to have realistic expectations for improvement without striving for absolute perfection.
The Coolaser Laser Facial Acne Scar Removal procedure can be performed on both men and women over the age of 18 who have had no other medical complications. Coolaser Laser Acne Scar Removal is considered to be very safe. Several common side effects that may occur are a transient pigmentation change, swelling, and or discomfort in the treated area. In preparing for the procedure it is important for patients to avoid direct exposure to sunlight for 4 weeks prior to Coolaser Laser Skin Resurfacing.

Your physician may also instruct you to use a topical cream 4-6 weeks prior to each treatment and may prescribe oral antibiotics and antiviral medication. It is important to follow every direction given by your doctor in order to ensure the best results, and optimal recovery.
