Image Perfect Laser offers premier laser treatments for acne scars so you can feel confident about your complexion. Acne is one of the most common skin diseases and affects the skin’s oil glands. People of all races and ages can get acne. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, approximately 40 to 50 million Americans suffer from acne each year. Acne is not just a problem for teenagers. Adults in their 20s – 30s – 40s and even 50s can get acne. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Although acne is usually not a serious health threat, it can be a source of significant emotional distress. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring.
While most individuals recover from acne without any skin damage, some are left with pimple scars, acne marks, or permanent acne scars. If you’re searching for solutions for clear skin, try our effective laser treatments for acne scars.
Our Top Laser Treatments For Acne Scars
Human skin, especially on the face, neck, back, and the chest is covered with hundreds of thousands of microscopic hair follicles passing through pores. Acne, which is also known as acne vulgaris, results from over-productive sebaceous glands. Sebum (oil) which normally drains to the surface gets trapped and bacteria (P. acnes.) begin to grow. All acne lesions start out as a pimple. If left untreated, some pimples can turn into nodules or cysts.
Our acne laser treatments offer a promising solution for people struggling with this common skin condition. These laser treatments can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars, as well as active breakouts.
There are a few different types of laser treatments that can be used to treat acne scars. At Image Perfect Laser, we offer the following laser treatments for acne scars:
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is considered to be the gold standard when it comes to laser treatments for acne scars. This laser treatment works by creating thousands of tiny columns of laser light in the skin. The laser light targets the damaged tissue and stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
Erbium laser resurfacing is another effective laser treatment. This laser treatment uses a different wavelength of light than CO2 laser resurfacing. Erbium laser resurfacing works by vaporizing the outer layers of skin, which helps to smooth out the appearance of scars.
Pulsed dye laser therapy is another effective laser treatment for acne scars. This treatment uses yellow light to target the blood vessels that are causing inflammation in the skin. Pulsed dye laser therapy can help to reduce the redness, swelling, and pain associated with acne scars.
Who suffers from acne?
Acne is the most common skin disease. People of all races and ages get acne. But it is most common in teenagers and young adults. An estimated 80 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have acne outbreaks at some point. Some people in their forties and fifties still get acne.
Acne often causes physical and psychological problems such as permanent scarring, poor self-image, depression, and anxiety.
What causes acne scars?
Acne scars are formed as part of the body’s natural healing process, as it heals inflamed acne. Most acne scars are depressed scars that appear in three forms: Icepick scars, Boxcar scars and Rolling scars. The Icepick scars look like deep narrow holes and may extend deeper into the tissue. Other types of scars are Boxcar scars which are round depressions with steep sides that look like large pores. Finally, Rolling acne scars cause undulations that look like rolling waves. Another category of acne scars is raised scars that usually become less noticeable over time unless they develop as keloids that are thick and rubbery.
Who suffers from acne scars?
Acne scars can form on any skin type and affect approximately 11% of the population. Family history and genetics play a significant role in a person’s susceptibility to scarring. In addition, those who suffer from severe acne have a higher chance of developing acne scars. Effective and early treatment of acne can significantly reduce the formation of scars. If scars are formed, it is generally best to treat them as soon as possible since the younger the scar the easier it is to treat and the better the result.
Are laser treatments painful?
Laser treatments for acne scars are not painful. You may experience some discomfort during the treatment process, but this can be easily managed with a topical numbing cream.
How many laser treatments will I need?
The number of laser treatments for acne will vary depending on the severity of your scars. Most people will need 3-5 laser treatments for acne scars, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
What are the side effects of these laser treatments?
The side effects of laser treatments when it comes to removing acne scars are typically mild and include redness, swelling, and crusting. These side effects will usually resolve within a few days after the treatment.

I absolutely love this place!!! The environment is warm, welcoming and very friendly.. Image Perfect Laser is a Medical Spa that came highly recommended to me and I am highly recommending it to you. I had multiple IPL's (Intense pulsed light therapy) done on my face, chest and back. It truly helped improve the color and texture of my skin. I also did 6 treatments of Evoke under my chin to tighten the skin. I am very pleased with the results!! I will consider other treatment types that they offer given my great experience so far!! Thank you for everything Teresa,
