Acne Scar Removal Q & A

What causes acne scars?

There are two types of acne: inflammatory and noninflammatory. Inflammatory acne is usually to blame for acne scarring. With this kind of acne, you see cysts, pustules, and angry redness during breakouts.

When you have a blemish, it swells, causing a break in the hair follicle wall. A break that occurs near the surface of your skin will heal quickly. Ruptures that occur deeper in the follicle allow an infection to spread into your dermis. If this happens, healthy tissue is destroyed.

Acne scarring is directly related to the severity of your acne inflammation. The more swelling you have, the more likely you are to scar. If your breakouts take a long time to heal, it’s also more likely that you will have scarring.

So Cal Body Institute is proud to offer PicoSure, an innovative laser treatment that helps heal your damaged dermis and eliminate acne scars.

How does PicoSure treat acne scars?

PicoSure is a noninvasive laser that uses concentrated energy to generate laser-induced optical breakdowns (LIOB) in the outer layer of your skin. LIOBs send pressure waves into your dermis that trigger a natural healing response.

During the healing process, there's an increase in collagen and elastin to the area, which results in a smoother complexion. Because of PicoSure’s precision, these treatments don't cause the thermal damage to surrounding tissue seen with other laser treatments.

Besides reducing and eliminating acne scarring, PicoSure closes pores and smooths your skin to reduce the signs of aging.

What can I expect during my appointment?

A PicoSure treatment is fast and easy; you can do it over your lunch break. Your treatment will take 15-30 minutes. You may experience mild redness, but this fades within 24 hours, often sooner.

You might also need multiple sessions to reach your ideal results. However, you can be assured that Crystal Brieden PA-C can help you achieve your desired results: As of 2018, she has been using PicoSure for acne scar removal for close to 4 years.

How much is acne scar removal?

The price can vary based on the severity of the scarring and your desired outcome. So Cal Body Institute has a “pay as you go” option, or you can buy a package of multiple treatments to take advantage of big savings!
