Acne Scar Treatment

Treat unwanted acne scars

As one of the most prevalent skin conditions in the United States, acne affects 50 million people annually. Although mild acne resolves on its own, some people experience severe acne that leaves both physical and mental scars. Some factors that cause acne scars include inflammation of the follicles located in the deeper skin layers, excess sebum (skin oil) production, family history, acne severity, duration, and location.

Research shows acne scars can cause depression, poor self-esteem, and can impact the overall quality of life.

At Renew MD Facial Aesthetics, we offer advanced acne scar treatment with Aerolase laser or SkinPen™ to achieve scar reversal and skin rejuvenation that is long-lasting. Dr. Alexis Gordon, who heads Renew MD Facial Aesthetics, is considered to be the top expert in Aerolase and SkinPen acne scar treatment in Southlake, Texas.

What is Aerolase?

The Aerolase laser has received FDA approval to treat wide-ranging skin conditions including acne scars, skin tightening, removal of facial hair, pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles, among others.

Aerolase is a highly-effective, safe, and gentle treatment for acne scars. The 650-microsecond laser device has specialized settings that enable energy to penetrate the deeper skin layers. This helps mitigate inflammation and reduce sebum production while destroying the bacteria that cause acne. The heating energy of the laser stimulates collagen production that removes acne scars and leaves your skin looking youthful and radiant.

SkinPen™ for acne scars

We also specialize in using the SkinPen™ – the FDA-approved device for micro-needling. During this procedure, one of our staff first applies a topical gel and then uses the SkinPen™ to produce micro-injuries on the skin in a precise way. The micro-injuries stimulate the production of skin proteins such as collagen, which eliminates acne scars and restores the skin’s volume and tightness.

In our expert hands, these treatments:

  • Give great results
  • Have no downtime or unpleasant side effects
  • Are well-tolerated
  • Are suitable for all skin types


The procedure

At the initial consultation, our expert staff reviews your medical and medication history while evaluating the extent of acne scars. Once she determines your candidacy for Aerolase or SkinPen™, she explains the procedure and outcome in detail. In most cases, the treatment is administered in the same session. During the procedure, our staff may use a topical anesthetic to enhance your comfort while using protective shields to cover the eyes in the case of Aerolase. The laser applicator of the Aerolase device or the SkinPen™ device is then passed over the skin in a controlled manner.
