Zap Away Acne Scars with a newly Approved Treatment

Finally, an effective acne treatment option for acne scarring with the newly FDA-approved PicoSure by Cynosure laser. Typically it is used as the most advanced treatment for tattoo removal, PicoSure's PressureWave technology has been extremely effective in increasing skin elasticity in scar tissue and thus reducing the appearance of acne scars.

Dr. Bruce Katz, founder of the JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York, was one of the first physicians in the country to work with the PicoSure laser and has been at the forefront of its progress.

"PicoSure's PressureWave technology gently delivers ultra-short pulses of energy in trillionths of a second resulting in increased density and length of elastin fibers and increased collagen deposition," says Dr. Katz. "Clinical studies showed a dramatic improvement in the appearance of acne scars in as little as three treatments."

The number of treatments required depends on the depth of density of scars and size of the treatment area.
