Laser acne scar removal in Baltimore with the Palomar StarLux 500 is an excellent option that will reduce the appearance of acne scars and create beautiful, smooth skin.
What are the different types of acne scars?
We offer a personalized solution
There are three main types of acne scars – depressed, raised (keloid) and discolored scars. The StarLux 500 laser system is effective in resurfacing acne-damaged skin in patients suffering from depressed scars. Depressed or pitted acne scarring is most common and is generally a result of inflammatory acne.
Depressed scars lay on top of a layer of fibrous, collagen-rich scar tissue, which anchors the base of the scar to the subcutaneous tissue. This prevents the growth of healthy tissue and maintains the pitted appearance.

How does laser acne scar removal work to achieve a clear, radiant complexion?
The Palomar StarLux 500 aesthetic laser system uses laser light and fractional skin resurfacing technology to penetrate deep beneath the skin to stimulate and promote new collagen growth from the inside out. The results are a smoother and more radiant appearance of your skin.
Depending on your desired outcome, typically more than one treatment is required to see the best results. Treatments are performed once every 4 to 6 weeks and can last from 5 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

Am I a candidate?
Most patients who are suffering from depressed acne scars can be treated safely with minimal downtime. However, prior to beginning any laser-based treatments you must be evaluated by one of our medical practitioners in order to be medically cleared for treatment.
Is there any recovery necessary?
Side effects from laser treatments are minimal, but may include redness, swelling and irritation. These symptoms will mimic those associated with a mild sunburn. A new, healthy layer of skin will usually appear within 2 weeks.
