Acne Laser Scar Removal

ABOUT Acne Laser Scar Removal AT CHRISTINA CLINIC

We have two ways that we use to treat acne scarring. The first one is called the profactional laser, and this is an ablative method where we are using laser beams to create channels in the skin. It is very precise and measured. This is an amazing treatment that smooths out those acne scar areas. It takes about four to six months to see the results and patients do have to experience about four days of downtime, but it is well worth it. Secondly, we do something called the skin pen and that’s microneedling, which is the same concept.

ProFractional Therapy™ FAQs

ProFractional Therapy is a quick and effective laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is performed in your health care provider’s office and can be custom tailored to address a wide range of skin conditions and desired outcomes.

ProFractional is a laser made by Sciton that uses a tiny beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. The laser used in this system has a very high attraction to the water in your skin. When the laser energy is applied, it ablates (vaporizes) a layer of skin to a precisely-controlled depth. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This body’s wound healing response creates new collagen, which adds firmness and resilience to the skin.

ProFractional has the unique ability to penetrate very deep into the skin, but with very little heat damage to surrounding tissue. This combination allows for efficacious collagen remodeling (due to the deep treatments) and a high safety margin (due to low thermal damage) on all skin types. This combination makes ProFractional one of the safest, yet most effective resurfacing lasers available today.

Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, although many people also treat the chest and hands. Your health care provider can adjust the laser settings appropriately for the specific area being treated.

The skin in the treatment area will be cleansed and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. A laser hand-piece will be positioned gently on the skin. When the laser energy is applied, you will hear a rapid succession of snapping sounds as the computer-guided hand-piece scans the laser beam over the treatment area. The hand-piece will be moved around to adjacent locations until the entire desired area has been covered. The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes.

ProFractional therapy is widely regarded as a comfortable procedure, usually tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on the depth of treatment.

Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Your health care provider will advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which may include analgesics and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist.

You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use sun block to avoid solar damage and premature aging of your skin.

Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to normal activities and apply makeup a day or two after the treatment. There may be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.

As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs during the 4 to 6 months following your treatment. It may therefore take several months to see maximum benefit from your treatment.

ProFractional Therapy is widely regarded as a safe procedure. Because only a fraction of the skin is affected, even deep treatments can be very safe. Your health care provider can provide more information on the risks associated with any type of medical procedure, including ProFractional Therapy. One of the best ways to reduce the possibility of complications is to follow the after-treatment care instructions and follow-up schedule provided by your health care provider. Doing so will help reduce the possibility of infection and ensure proper healing.

Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Some patients seek the minimal downtime advantages of very conservative treatments and choose to extend their therapy over several sessions. Others desire more rapid results and are able to tolerate longer downtime, and thus pursue a more aggressive single treatment. Your health care provider can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine ProFractional Therapy with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

I had a BBL and MicroLaserPeel done at Christina Clinic. The office décor was so inviting, tasteful and relaxing. The new owner did my treatments. She was telling me the clinic is now woman and minority owned and they have lasers for all skin tones. She explained both procedures and what to expect during and after in such great detail. She took the time to discuss my face and customize my treatments. My skin looks amazing and I look much younger. Even my boyfriend noticed. I most definitely will be back.

I have had the best experience at Christina Clinic - especially with Betsy! Betsy is simply the best (however Lynn helped me too and was great and sweet too!). I am doing some laser hair removal and her knowledge, rapport/bedside manner, honesty with realistic expectations and skill is exactly what I want in a clinic. Every employee I connected with, from the front desk...to any other employee I passed by in the lobby were genuinely friendly. Their communication has also been amazing. I accidentally forgot an appointment (even though the sent a reminder text) and she knew the times that worked for me and was able to squeeze me in the next day. I HIGHLY recommend the Christina Clinic!

I came to Christina clinic for my upper lip hair and pimples on my face. I used to have a thick hair on my upper lip and a lot of pimples on my face. I was so embarrassed with my appearance. Then, I came to Christina clinic for Laser hair removal and Skin pen. I could see a great result since my first treatment. Now, I am almost done with my both treatments and feel satisfied. I would recommend this clinic for anyone who has the same problems.

I had been to a different laser hair removal clinic before and had disappointing results. I felt discouraged from laser hair removal clinics but when I came in for my consult appt at Christina Clinic I could instantly knew I came to the right place. From the very start I could tell they genuinely wanted to help get rid of your unwanted hair and werent just there to talk you into getting their packages. Betsy was absolutely fantastic and very attentive to how I was reacting to the treatment. She is super friendly, works around your schedule, and makes you feel comfortable asking questions, (overall awesome person!) thanks to her and the clinic, I saw significantly better results! The staff is extremely professional and kind, and i highly recommend checking them out for your laser hair removal needs:)

I visited the Christina Clinic almost ten years ago, and had an incredible experience. The staff were kind, very informed and experienced and always made me feel comfortable. I have very dark hair and olive skin, and from a very young age I was always self conscious and very aware of (what I thought was excessive as a kid) my darker ‘peach fuzz’ on my face. My eyebrows were thick and very usually (daily) required attention to keep them separate. Painful tweezing, waxing, shaving, the works… I’ve been incredibly pleased with the results, and after ten years, I’m going back to do it all again. … I love this place, and it’s changed my life.

I smoked cigarettes for years and my skin payed the price! Tricia has been doing micro needling on me and I have so much more confidence now! She also set me up with some products that leave my skin literally glowing. She's taken the time to educate me on the benefits of different products and why they would work best for me pertaining to my skin type and my insecurities. Since starting to see Tricia, I've had so many compliments on how great my skin looks now! I can't wait to try other services. I 100% trust her! The location is so clean and beautiful. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. I found my new home for my skin care. Thanks to Tricia, I'm a new woman!

I have been going to Christina Clinic for several years for many different treatments. It's always a lovely experience with great results. Recently, I've been going in for Dysport to hide those not so wanted wrinkles and Lynn is always super helpful and informative on where best and how much of the Dysport I need. Christina Clinic makes me look and feel my best- I will continue to be a loyal customer!
