There are many things we outgrow when we become adults. Unfortunately, acne scarring isn’t always one of them.

A number of factors can cause acne, and treating these inflamed bumps can be tricky. But the prolonged inflammation can also cause dark spots and scarring — painful reminders of an already frustrating situation. According to Dr. Emil Tanghetti of the Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery, “Acne scarring can happen even without picking. Acne lesions, particularly cysts, can lead to scarring due to the intense, collagen-damaging skin inflammation.”

Thankfully for your patients, there’s an option available. PicoSure — the leading technology in laser tattoo removal — has proven to be an effective treatment for dark spots and scars caused by adult acne. Clinical studies revealed a significant reduction in the appearance of acne scars in just three or four easy treatments. Since the PicoSure Focus treatments are gentler and more precise than conventional laser alternatives, they cause far less discomfort and typically only 1-3 hours of mild redness.

The remnants of acne don’t have to be a lifelong struggle. Ask your doctor whether PicoSure Skin Revitalization is right for you.
