Finding a better way to remove acne scars has been a quest that I have actively pursued during my entire professional career as a board certified dermatologist. A new combination treatment for acne scars consistently gives great results of greater 75% improvement in a single treatment session. The new combination treatment is performed using a full face blending peel (laser or chemical peel) in combination with tumescent anesthesia and subcision.

Subcision, using the custom surgical tool, is used to release the scar bands in the areas where depressed and irregularly-textured scars are present. Subcision is like cutting the strings on buttoned upholstery. It allows the depressed areas of scarring to pop up and become level with the surrounding skin. I designed a special new surgical tool to perform the subcision procedure.

The final step is the use of a crisscross laser treatment using the Fraxel Repair laser. This laser removes small dots of skin, like aeration of a lawn. When the skin heals, it is much smoother.

Healing time is seven to fourteen days. I use Boske Molecular Repair and Omnilux New U healing lights during the recovery phase of the treatment. Skin Medica Redness Relief CalmPlex is used to treat post treatment redness. Avené Tolerance Extreme Cream is used to hydrate, soften and protect the skin during the first month after treatment. I recommend La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Sunscreen to prevent post inflammatory hyperpigmentation post operatively.
The results are phenomenal, much better than any other treatment I have ever used and much better than any other treatment I have ever seen presented at the medical and scientific meetings that I attend.

Acne scars are not only unsightly, but also psychologically damaging to individuals who suffer from terrible scarring cystic acne during their younger years. The new combination acne scar treatment procedure is one of the most satisfying procedures that I perform at the Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, the largest dedicated cosmetic laser center in the world. We are in the process of training other doctors to perform this treatment as well.
