Are you one of the many who still suffers from acne scars? Now there is a new treatment that may help.
In the past, acne scars have been treated with surgery, dermabrasion, laser peels, soft tissue fillers, chemical peeling agents, traumatic needling procedures, and a host of other treatments. While these procedures produced satisfactory results, it was difficult, even in the best of cases, to achieve more than 50 percent improvement for severe scars and skin depressions. In addition, a great amount of downtime was often involved.
Today, Dr. Taylor has combined tumescent anesthesia (to numb the skin), subcision (a process of undermining and loosening adhesions beneath the scars using a micro dissector), TCA chemical peels, horizontal resurfacing to remove scar ridges, and ablative fractional laser treatments. While the combined approach sounds complicated, it actually allows greater improvement in a single visit without any more downtime or risk. In most cases, the entire treatment for facial acne scarring can be completed in about an hour of treatment time, and with just one or two weeks of recovery time.
If you suffer from acne scarring and would like more informaiton regarding this new combined laser treatment, please call us at 801-595-1600.
Dr. Taylor discusses the latest in acne scar treatments at Gateway Aesthetic on both Studio 5 and Fox 13.
