ACNE SCAR REMOVAL TORONTO

Visit Fees & Financing for more details.

After acne clears up, many people are left with unsightly scars. The appearance of these scars range in color, texture and size. They can take the form of hyper-hypo pigmentation, pitting, and over-production of scar tissue. Fortunately, at NewDermaMed we employ the most advanced technologies to safely and dramatically reduce the look of all acne scars by reducing pigment, brightening skin, and evening out complexion.

TYPES OF SCARS

  • Icepick scars - Characterized by thin but deep columns of missing skin tissues. Commonly arising from severe acne, icepick scars usually appear on the cheek or nose.

  • Depressed fibrotic scars - If ice-pick scars are somehow aggravated, they can transform into large, hard, crater-like scars
  • Macules - Flat pigmented patches. Typically the end result of severe acne, appearing and persisting after the original inflammation.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation - Appears anywhere on the body and varies in size. Often caused by hormonal changes, and/or acne inflammation.
  • Soft scars - Generally small, these vary in depth and shape
  • Atrophic macules - Soft and sometimes blue or white. These can appear on the body as well as the face.
  • Follicular macular atrophy - Small, raised, generally white bumps, usually seen on the chest or back

ACNE SCAR TREATMENT

At NewDermaMed we are proud to offer a variety of laser therapies to successfully treat all types of acne scars from superficial to deep acne scar tissue. Depending on the type of acne scarring, treatment plans will differ from patient to patient.  

Fractional laser resurfacing is universally recognized as the most advanced treatment for acne scarring. The fractional laser offers a degree of control and efficacy that allows for highly precise sculpting of the skin. The laser can target superficial to deep acne scar tissue and is ideal for patients who want dramatic results with minimal down time. The following are some of the approaches we use at NewDermaMed using fractional laser resurfacing.

1.     Fractional Laser

The Fractional Laser utilizes an erbium:YAG laser and Pearl Fractional. It uses thousands of microscopic laser columns to ablate narrow diameter channels into the skin, removing old damaged cells and stimulating the growth of new healthy cells. It is able to selectively cover a fraction of the total treatment area, while leaving surrounding healthy tissue untouched. The benefits of the Fractional Laser include increased patient comfort, rapid healing, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.

2.     TwinLight Fractional Rejuvenation

TwinLight Fractional Rejuvenation is a simple 2-mode skin resurfacing and rejuvenation procedure that is performed ablatively with an Er:YAG laser and non-ablatively with a Nd:YAG laser for a comprehensive acne scar treatment. The deep heating effect of the Nd:YAG laser beam helps rejuvenate and stimulate the skin, while the Er:YAG beam promotes cell renewal and the formation of new, healthy skin. The treatment can be tuned so that the results meet patients expectations, from light touch ups to deep collagen remodeling. The treatment offers our medical experts a high degree of control and efficacy that permits the most precise and effective treatment. TwinLight Fractional Rejuvenation is suitable for all skin types and tones. It is ideal for patients who want drastic improvements with minimal downtime.

3.     Dual Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Dual Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing provides comprehensive results by offering customizable treatment using two treatment settings. The first treatment setting is the Fractional Laser. This Fractional Laser penetrates deep into the lower levels of the skin; it can be performed on its own or in combination with the second treatment setting, the Ultra-Laser Peel. The Ultra-Laser Peel provides full field treatment to remove superficial skin imperfections on the surface of the skin. Combining the Ultra-Laser Peel with the Fractional Laser will result in significant improvement to your acne scar in one session. Dual Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing promotes rapid healing by stimulating the body’s collagen production replacing the old damaged cells of the acne scars with healthy, luminous, youthful skin.

COMBINATION THERAPIES: IPL, LASER GENESIS, MICRODERMABRASION, PEELS

The IPL and Laser Genesis treatments are incredible for specifically treating both fresh spots and vascular acne scars. They work by targeting blood vessels which cause the redness in the scar. The IPL treatment eradicates hyperpigmentation and softens the look of scars, while the Laser Genesis hydrates damaged skin, stimulate collagen production and repair scar tissue.

Acne Removal Treatments

Your clinic has a treatment for Acne?
We do! Our clinic treats the most common forms of acne including: Comedones, Pustules, Papules, and Cysts/Nodules. NewDermaMed Cosmetic Clinic treats our clients that are experiencing acne with our Nd: YAG laser and Intense Pulse Light laser Technology. This allows us to use the safest and most innovative technology to suit each client’s needs.
What does the treatment do?
To begin, the laser emits a wavelength that penetrates through the skin and targets the overactive Sebaceous Glands (Oil Glands). When the sebaceous glands are heated, it causes a mild thermal injury that changes the activity of the glands. Simply stated, the glands no longer produce the same amount of oil, which is the main cause for breakouts. Also during treatment the nd:YAG Laser kills acne causing bacteria under the skin. This gives our clients better lasting results.
What about Intense Pulse Light? What does that do?
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) works hand in hand with the nd: YAG laser for treating acne. It is ideal for destroying surface bacteria for a quick clearance of current acne breakouts. When IPL is pared with a pore-centered suction to clear out clogged pores, it shrinks pores them leaving your skin looking much clearer. All of this is achieved in just one session!
Can’t I just use a medicated cream?
Medicated creams do assist with the symptoms of acne. However, with an acne treatment at our clinic, we are targeting the underlying cause beneath the skin. Medicated creams only remain on the surface of the skin and provide temporary relief. They do not focus on the root of the problem, unlike our laser treatment.
What causes Acne?
Acne is caused by a number of different factors some being: a build up of dirt and bacteria within the pores of the skin, hormonal changes, food sensitivities, and over active sebaceous glands. Acne also can affect men and women off all ages and backgrounds. Those who experience severe acne may also suffer from social anxiety, depression and social isolation. Here at NewDermaMed Cosmetic Clinic we offer a positive acne solution!
If I do decide to have a treatment, is there anything else I should be doing?
Maintain a regular skin care routine at home is imperative. Be sure to be using products that are oil free. It is also important to refrain from scratching, or squeezing the acne. This will worsen the infection as well as it will spread acne-causing bacteria to other areas. Scratching your acne will also give a higher chance of scaring.
What will my skin be like after my treatments?
Our clients see positive results right after their first session. Skin will be clearer, softer and over a short period of time blemishes will fade away exposing radiant skin beneath.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the severity of the acne, we might advise several sessions. If more sessions are needed they will be given two weeks apart. All of this can be determined during a FREE consultation with our Medical Professional.
If this is the treatment right for me, what’s the next step?
It would be our pleasure here at NewDermaMed Cosmetic Clinic, to book you in for a FREE consultation. During your private consultation you will be able meet our Medical Professionals as well as tour our clinic. Your FREE consultation will also allow you to discus in person any concerns you may have. Our Medical Professional will also be able to examine your areas of concern and tailor a skin care program right to your specific needs!
