The Center for SmartSkin brings a new approach to skin care for acne and acne scars treatment, the ScitonR laser system, and the most effective light based treatment available. Today laser therapy has proven to be a very effective and faster way to treat acne and acne scars.

Acne is an inflammatory condition of the skin frequently associated with teenagers. Typically characterized by clogged pores and pimples, cysts, blackheads and whiteheads, Acne, or Acne Vulgaris affects the face, shoulders, back, neck and chest. The most common causes are changes in hormonal levels, increased sebum production, bacteria and changes inside the hair follicles. Severe acne or acne that is not treated properly can lead to scarring. Patients with Acne are typically treated with antibiotics or topical creams. Our ScitonR laser system brings a new approach to acne treatment. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin condition and desired results. We use the laser to treat acne and atrophic acne scars. The acne and atrophic acne scars on your body will soften as a result. You will notice an immediate improvement in your skin texture and smoothness.

The acne treatment uses an infrared laser to treat your condition. The laser energy delivered gently heats up the upper layers of your skin/dermis. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will reach the sebaceous glands in your skin, thus reducing the number of active acne lesions. ScitonR laser acne scars therapy is effective on all skin types and tones.

Clinical studies suggest that at least two acne treatments are needed to see results. Typically, patients will receive 2 treatments per week for 2-4 weeks or until acne clears. Results of acne scars treatment by sebaceous gland heating have been reported to last up to 6 months. One of the most outstanding features of this treatment is that there is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure. After a session, the area treated may appear red for up to an hour. No wound is created, therefore, there is no healing time required.
