SCAAR FX for Acne Scars
At Dr. Suzanne Yee’s Cosmetic and Laser Surgery Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, we offer several laser options for different types of skin conditions. One of the most common skin conditions is acne. When acne is considered severe, the end result may yield acne scarring. These scars can leave you feeling self-conscious. With the SCAAR FX, Dr. Yee is able to drastically diminish the appearance of acne scars.
What is SCAAR FX?
SCAAR FX is a fractional resurfacing laser that penetrates below the skin to emulsify thick lesions, pitting, and even deep wrinkles. The technology behind SCAAR FX is the most advanced in scar treatments, and may also be used on ethnic skin. Until recently, people with ethnic skin were very limited on the types of lasers used for various cosmetic treatments. The SCAAR FX also helps to trigger elastic fibers and collagen to regenerate.
