How Can Lasers Help With Acne Scarring?

Acne scars can diminish your self-confidence, leading to embarrassment and frustration with ineffective treatments. If you’re struggling with raised, flat, or depressed skin marks, laser acne scar treatment can help by:

  • Reducing inflammation and redness, giving your skin a healthier look
  • Minimizing the appearance of acne scars for a smoother skin texture
  • Slowing excess oil production, a key factor in acne outbreaks
  • Accelerating skin healing and rejuvenation processes for a fresher look

Acne Scars

At Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania, you can choose from multiple laser treatments tailored for acne scar issues:

Fraxel® Dual

The Fraxel Dual laser stimulates collagen production and gradually reduces the appearance of acne scars while improving skin texture.

Pulsed Dye Laser

Pulsed dye lasers, like the Vbeam® Prima, can reduce inflammation and redness in red acne scars for a more even tone and complexion.

Genius RF Microneedling

The Genius RF microneedling system combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to trigger collagen production, resulting in less visible acne scars and smoother skin. This is especially helpful for depressed acne scars and divets.

LaseMD Ultra

LaseMD is a non-ablative fractional laser treatment that improves skin tone and texture while minimizing the appearance of acne scars for a fresher and more youthful look. This is especially helpful for hyperpigmented or darker-appearing marks.

After a thorough consultation, your board-certified dermatologist can select a laser or combination of treatments that fit your specific needs and suit your skin type.

Laser Acne Scar Treatment FAQ

Q: Is laser acne scar treatment suitable for all types of acne scars?

A: Laser treatment is effective for various types of acne scars, including atrophic, hypertrophic, ice-pick, and rolling scars. However, the suitability may vary based on individual skin conditions. Consult with one of our experienced dermatologists for a personalized assessment.

Q: Is laser acne scar treatment suitable for darker skin?

A: While darker skin tones are often more challenging to treat, laser therapy can effectively target acne scars on skin of color. Not all lasers are ideal for darker skin due to potential pigmentation changes, so a comprehensive assessment is essential to determine the appropriate type. Schedule a consultation with our board-certified dermatologists to learn what laser works best for your skin.


Q: Does laser treatment completely remove acne scars?

A: While laser treatment can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, it may not completely remove them. The goal is to minimize their visibility and enhance overall skin texture.


Q: How many laser sessions are typically required for acne scar treatment?

A: The number of sessions needed can vary depending on the severity of the acne scars and the type of laser treatment used. Our dermatologists typically recommend a series of sessions for optimal results.

Q: Are there any side effects or downtime associated with laser acne scar treatment?

A: Common side effects include redness, swelling, and mild skin sensitivity immediately after the treatment, which usually subside within a few days. Depending on the intensity of the laser used, there might be minimal downtime. Avoiding sun exposure and following specific post-treatment instructions can help protect your skin after treatment.

Q: Can laser treatment be combined with other acne scar treatments?

A: Yes, laser treatment can be combined with other treatments, such as fillers and medical-grade skincare, to enhance your results. Your dermatologist can recommend the best combination based on your specific needs.

Q: Will my acne scars return after laser treatment?

A: Laser treatment can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, but new breakouts can potentially lead to new scars. Maintaining a good skincare routine and working with an experienced dermatologist to manage acne can help prevent new scars from forming.

Q: How long will it take to see results from laser acne scar treatment?

A: Visible results vary among individuals, but improvement in the appearance of acne scars is typically noticeable after a few treatment sessions. However, it’s important to note that collagen production and skin healing take time, so full results may continue to develop for several months after the treatment series.
