The most effective ways to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture.

Acne scars can be a stubborn reminder of past breakouts, but there are several effective treatments available to help improve their appearance and restore confidence in your skin. Our 3 most popular methods for addressing acne scars include: microneedling, chemical peels and CoolPeel laser treatments.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of a device equipped with fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased collagen and elastin production. Over time, this can help to smooth out acne scars and improve overall skin texture. Microneedling is suitable for various types of acne scars, including rolling, boxcar, and ice pick scars. Multiple sessions are required for optimal results, with noticeable improvement occurring 4-6 weeks after the last treatment.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve the application of an active chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the outermost layer and promotes cellular turnover. This helps to fade hyperpigmentation, smooth out rough texture and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Depending on the strength of the peel and the specific concerns being addressed, chemical peels can vary in intensity, ranging from superficial to deep. Superficial peels typically require little to no downtime, while deeper peels may involve a longer recovery. Chemical peels are a versatile treatment option for acne scars and can be customized to suit individual skin types and concerns.


CoolPeel laser treatments utilize advanced CO2 laser technology to resurface the skin, effectively reducing the appearance of acne scars. Unlike traditional ablative lasers, CoolPeel delivers energy in a fractionated manner, creating micro-columns of thermal damage in the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This allows for quicker healing and minimal downtime compared to traditional laser resurfacing procedures. CoolPeel is great for improving texture, tone and overall radiance, making it a popular choice for addressing acne scars and other signs of aging.

It’s essential to consult with a qualified medical professional to determine the best treatment plan for your specific acne scars. In many cases, a combination of treatments may be recommended for optimal results. Additionally, maintaining a consistent skincare routine and protecting the skin from sun exposure can help prevent further scarring and promote overall skin health.
