Minimize Acne Scarring

The scars that acne may leave behind can often be more formidable than the pimples that proceeded them. Laser treatments have proven to produce significant results to remove stubborn acne scars that can occur deep into the dermis.

We Hand-Select Treatments from the Most Advanced Technologies

Depending on the severity of the scarring, your physician may select from a number of acne scar removal machines. Cartessa Aesthetics’ portfolio includes the newest technologies available that can effectively treat deeper acne scars and improve skin tone and texture.

Tetra CO2

The CO2 laser is considered the gold-standard in skin resurfacing and is highly effective in the treatment of acne scars. The Cartessa-selected CO2, the SmartXide Tetra by DEKA, is highly versatile and precise. Treatments can target the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and do so in the most controlled manner to avoid unnecessary downtime.

VirtueRF microneedling boasts impactful outcomes in its own right—but when paired with the Tetra CO2 CoolPeel laser treatment, it is the ultimate combination for treating acne scars. While VirtueRF stimulates deep collagen restoration, CoolPeel painlessly resurfaces the skin. This combination permeates the superficial epidermis and deep dermal layers to target hyperpigmentation, superficial tone and texture, and kickstart neocollagenesis to help improve the look of acne scarring.
