Resurfacing for Acne Scars

Pixel is a type of laser resurfacing that helps to reduce acne scars effectively. Laser pulses create tiny ablative zones for removing the epidermis.

Microneedling with radio frequency waves is another technology that can work for very deep and pitted acne scars. These treatments then trigger the body*s natural process, stimulating growth of new, healthy tissue, which results in smooth, refreshed and scar free skin. The pixel laser can also be used to control ageing in photodamaged wrinkled skin.
