Seeking acne scar removal? Walnut Creek laser specialists offer customized, precision treatment

Don’t live with unpleasant reminders of acne outbreaks. Trust your laser acne scar removal in Walnut Creek to the best. Internationally recognized for her knowledge of laser- and light-based technologies, Dr. Christine Lee not only offers 40-plus devices but also works with companies to develop the latest, greatest laser innovations. Taking all of this into account, The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute has the breadth and depth of expertise to meet and effectively treat your unique needs.

Seeking acne scar removal

Did you know? Scars are actually your body’s way of healing itself. When your skin is injured, collagen “fills in” and reconnects wounded tissue. As healing occurs, a scab forms and sometimes leaves behind an area of discoloration. How the scar looks and, accordingly, how Dr. Lee treats it depends on several factors, including:

  • Depth
  • Size
  • Location
  • Skin tone
  • Age

In some cases, scars actually look more noticeable over time because your skin naturally produces less collagen. You may be grappling with scars now because of later-onset acne or outbreaks in adulthood. Dr. Lee is accustomed to treating patients of all ages with acne, not just teens.

When too little collagen is produced during the healing process, acne outbreaks may leave behind depressed scars. When too much collagen is made, raised scars appear.

Scar treatment, the laser expert’s way

While some practices may depend on a single laser, Dr. Lee and her team understand no single device works for each and every patient’s acne scarring. Her many devices and approaches, from IPL to blue-light therapy, are customized to your type of scar and unique personal characteristics.

As the beam of laser light is precisely applied to the treatment site, energy generated from the device sloughs off damaged skin and makes way for rejuvenated tissue. This energy also stimulates the production of new collagen.

Acne removal with lasers is not any one thing at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute. Call (925) 528-0117 to discover treatment customized to you.
