Can Acne Be Cured? And What About Leftover Scarring?

Acne can be caused by a myriad of issues, including genetics, age, hormones, diet, stress, infection and more. And while there may not be a one-size-fits-all cure, fortunately, state-of-the-art procedures like chemical peels and facials combined with high-quality skincare products can help keep breakouts at bay.

Laser acne scar treatments in Michigan

If you are suffering with post-acne scars, you are not alone. Countless men and women suffer with acne scars and, until recently, the industry lacked an effective treatment.

The Cynosure ICON Laser at Dr. Andrew Lofman’s medical spa can help make acne scars a thing of the past. This innovative technology is fast, noninvasive and garners fantastic results with very little downtime.

The advanced laser technology in the Cynosure ICON breaks down the scar tissue that your unwanted scars are made of. The energy it delivered causes scars to disappear through your own body’s healing process naturally. The result is smoother, more even skin tone and texture.

Treatments can be done in as little as a half hour and most patients will need three to seven treatments for maximum results.
