Patients in and around the Walnut Creek, CA area who have scarring from past pimples and blemishes will be excited to learn that there are treatment solutions for acne scars. One of them is that of fractional laser and skin resurfacing.

A fractional laser is a treatment that allows patients to see dramatic results immediately and continuing for many months. This is because this service allows for the formation of collagen after stimulation. Our fractional laser treatments include ActiveFX, DeepFX, and TotalFX. These are treatments use the Lumenis CO2 laser; one of the best on the market today. They range in aggressiveness. The ActiveFX device is best for addressing the upper layers of the skin. It is a more mild treatment and is used for acne scars that may be shallow in depth. This may be best for rolling acne scars which cause an uneven texture along the skin. For more dramatic results, patients may want to consider the DeepFX or the TotalFX. Not only can these work wonders on pimple scars, but they can be used to turn back the hands of time. They can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, improve overall skin tone and texture, and can give patients a more youthful appearance, as well as, beautiful, glowing skin.
