For many of us, adolescence was a painful time. Hormones and social pressures make it easy at that age to feel unattractive, unpopular, and rejected. The problem is even worse for young men and women afflicted with acne, who often suffer daily agonizing crises of self-confidence.
Although we put those painful days behind us–we go to college, get a career, find a loving wife or husband–when we look in the mirror at our acne-scarred face it is all too easy to imagine ourselves back in that traumatic moment in our lives. These physical scars evoke the unseen but just as durable emotional ones.
But you don’t have to live with those reminders of days you would rather forget. At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we offer laser treatments that can dramatically reduce the appearance of acne scars. Our preferred treatment method is Fraxel laser treatment, which can increase collagen production in the recessed areas of scars, leveling them with the surrounding skin. Microdermabrasion can also be used and gives great results for some people.
We also offer treatments that can stop acne and prevent the formation of scars in the first place. This includes Isolaz acne laser treatment and photodynamic therapy for acne.
