Benefits of Laser Acne & Scar Treatment

  • Improved Skin Texture: Fractional CO2 laser treatment can significantly improve the texture of your skin by reducing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and other skin irregularities.
  • Reduced Scar Visibility: This treatment is particularly effective in reducing the visibility of acne scars, including deep boxcar and rolling scars. It works by promoting the growth of new, healthier skin.
  • Stimulates Collagen Production: The heat from the laser stimulates collagen production within the skin, which leads to a more youthful and plump appearance over time.
  • Treats Multiple Skin Issues: Apart from treating acne scars, the fractional CO2 laser can also address other skin issues such as wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and uneven skin tone.

What Can Laser Treatment Address?

Fractional CO2 laser treatment addresses various skin concerns, including:

  • Acne Scars: It's particularly effective in reducing the appearance of different types of acne scars, such as boxcar, rolling, and ice pick scars.
  • Skin Pigmentation: Fractional CO2 laser treatment can help reduce skin pigmentation issues, including age spots, sun spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation.
  • Uneven Skin Texture: By promoting the growth of new skin, this treatment can improve rough or uneven skin texture.
  • Large Pores: The treatment can minimize the appearance of large pores by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin tightening.

Ideal Candidates for Laser

Ideal candidates for fractional CO2 laser treatments are typically individuals who:

  • Have Acne Scars: This treatment is particularly effective for those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars, including boxcar, rolling, and ice pick scars.
  • Experience Skin Aging: The procedure can also benefit individuals who want to address signs of skin aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Have Their Active Acne Under Control: It's usually recommended for individuals to have their active acne breakouts under control before undergoing this procedure.
  • Can Avoid Sun Exposure: Post-treatment, the skin becomes more sensitive to sunlight. Therefore, ideal candidates should be able to avoid sun exposure for a certain period after the treatment.


During your consultation, Dr. Truong will discuss your skincare goals, assess your skin condition, and explain the Laser Acne & Scar Treatment procedure in detail. He will guide you through the entire process, ensuring you are comfortable and well-informed.

Treatment Options

We offer different treatment types for acne & scars through Fraxel, Lutronic eC02 or SmartXide CO2. With these options we're able to treat surface level acne without affecting the cells underneath, allowing healthy skin cells to build up the skin layer.

What happens during Laser?

Fractional CO2 laser treatment for acne and scars works by using a grid of tiny laser beams to penetrate into the skin's surface. These beams remove the damaged outer layers of skin and stimulate the underlying skin to produce more collagen, a protein that supports skin structure. As the treated area heals, new skin cells emerge, reducing the appearance of acne scars and improving skin texture. This process results in a smoother, healthier, and younger-looking complexion.


Recovery is generally quick, with most patients resuming normal activities within a week. Your skin will continue to improve over the next several months as new collagen forms.

Post-Operative Care

Post-treatment, it's crucial to protect your skin from the sun, keep the area clean, and moisturize regularly. These steps help promote healing and enhance the results of your treatment.

Types of Lasers that we use



Fraxel is a fractional laser treatment device primarily used for acne and scar treatment. It operates by producing thousands of tiny "microthermal" zones in the skin, which stimulate the body's natural healing process and accelerates the production of new, healthy skin cells. As an acne and scar treatment, Fraxel effectively diminishes the appearance of acne scars, even those that are deep and pitted, resulting in smoother skin texture. Besides addressing acne scars, Fraxel is also beneficial for treating hyperpigmentation caused by acne, aiding in the fading of these spots for a more even skin tone. Furthermore, it's capable of treating other skin issues such as wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots. By encouraging collagen production, it rejuvenates the skin, leading to a fresher, younger-looking complexion.


Lutronic eCO2

Lutronic's eCO2 is a fractional ablative laser treatment device primarily used for acne and scar treatment. It works by creating microscopic channels in the skin, which triggers the body's natural healing process and stimulates new collagen production. The eCO2 device is particularly effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and surgical scars. It also addresses skin pigmentation, discoloration, and sun damage. One of the significant benefits of the eCO2 laser is its versatility during treatment, allowing for a customized approach based on individual skin needs. As the treated areas heal, the skin appears smoother, firmer, and rejuvenated, with ongoing improvements noticeable for more than six months after treatment.


SmartXide CO2

SmartXide CO2 is an advanced laser acne and scar treatment device. It employs a technique known as fractional CO2 laser treatment, which uses dermal optical thermolysis to target the deeper layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin regeneration. As it treats only a fraction of the skin at a time, it allows for quicker healing and reduced downtime. SmartXide CO2 is particularly effective in treating acne scars, enlarged pores, loss of elasticity, and pigmented lesions. The benefits of this device include improved skin texture and clarity, decreased pore size, softened fine wrinkles and acne scars, and a brightened complexion.

Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

Fractional CO2 laser treatment can address a range of mild to moderate skin issues, including:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The laser stimulates collagen production, which helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the mouth and eyes.
  • Sun Damage: Fractional CO2 laser treatment can also address signs of sun damage, such as age spots and hyperpigmentation, improving the overall tone and texture of the skin.
  • Enlarged Pores: The treatment can minimize the appearance of large pores by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin tightening.
  • Mild to Moderate Scarring: Besides acne scars, it can also reduce the visibility of other mild to moderate scars on the skin.

Other Recommendations


Botox is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting a neurotoxin into specific muscles to temporarily reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It's beneficial for smoothing out expression lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows, providing a more youthful appearance.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to restore lost volume, smooth lines, soften creases, or enhance facial features. They offer instant results in plumping up areas such as lips and cheeks, reducing wrinkles, and enhancing facial contours for a rejuvenated look.

IPL Photofacial

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial is a treatment that uses light-based technology to tackle skin issues such as sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and broken capillaries. The benefits include improved skin texture, even skin tone, and reduced signs of aging.
