The effects of acne — both physical and emotional — can last much longer than your breakouts. Even after lesions have healed, they can leave behind permanent reminders. Acne is a skin condition that affects up to 80% of people in their teens and twenties and up to 5% of older adults. While many people recover from acne without any permanent effects, some people are left with disfiguring acne scars.


Acne Phototherapy

A system that safely and effectively treats this problem in about one-third the time of oral or topical medication. Blue Light Therapy clears acne safely and effectively with a series of concentrated pulses of light and heat. The Blue  wavelength activates endo-genic porphyrins under the skin and the red wavelength produces anti-inflammatory results. Within 8 acne treatments, 90% of patients see complete acne clearance.

What causes acne scarring?

Scar formation is a natural part of the healing process after injury. They are visible reminders of injury and tissue repair. 

Various factors influence how your skin scars. Of course, the depth and size of the wound or incision and the location of the injury are going to impact the scar’s characteristics, but your age, heredity, even your sex or ethnicity, will all affect how your skin reacts.


The best way of treating acne scars is to start early and continue for as long as necessary. There are, however, a number of treatments available when suffering from scar formation.



There are several non-surgical treatment options that may be appropriate for your acne scars, which include topical creams, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser skin resurfacing. Call Essence today to get started on your personalized course of treatment.
