Am I a Candidate for Acne Scar Laser Treatment?
If you have acne scars that are impacting your skin’s appearance and self-confidence, you may be an ideal candidate for acne scar laser treatment. Our aesthetic team headed by Dr. Mendieta offers advanced laser therapies for removing old acne scars to improve the tone and texture of your skin. The type of laser treatment depends on the acne scar. Deep, pitted scars can benefit from skin resurfacing to even out the texture of the skin, while dark scars can be faded by other types of laser treatments that target pigment. We also offer other options for fading acne scars like dermaplaning or chemical peels at our medical spa in Miami.

What to Expect During Your Procedure
The acne scars treatment used to remove acne scars can differ, depending on the severity of scarring. Dark spots or discolorations can be removed with dermaplaning, chemical peels or laser treatments. Pitted acne scars require skin resurfacing to remove. A deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing can erase indented acne scars to improve the texture of your skin. Most of our acne scar treatments can be performed in less than an hour at our medical spa.
Downtime and recovery are minimal with most acne scar treatments. Aerolase® NeoClear®, dermaplaning, and some chemical peels or laser treatments for acne scars do not require downtime after the procedure. For acne scars that require deep chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing for removal, there may be downtime to allow the skin to heal. Our aesthetic team will discuss the various acne scar treatment options and what to expect during your procedure when you come in for a skin consultation.
Dr. Mendieta has been featured on numerous domestic and international television programs and publications, as well as a frequent lecturer in various professional society meetings.
