DC area dermatologist offers laser treatment for acne scars

Dr. Cheryl M. Burgess offers laser treatment for acne scars

Washington, DC area patients who are interested in treatment for acne scars are welcome to contact the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery to learn about the options available. There are several ways for patients with acne scars to improve the texture of their skin, but one of the most sought after methods is with laser treatment.

What is laser treatment?

Laser treatment is used by many dermatologists for a variety of skin concerns. When acne scars affect the texture of the skin, patients can receive laser therapy to stimulate the production of collagen and smooth the skin. Not only does this result in a healthier appearance of the skin, but it also reduces shallow acne scars.

What are the alternatives?

There are many methods available to patients when it comes to treating the appearance of acne scars, and laser therapy is just one of them. Chemical peels, dermal fillers, subcision, and needling are common alternatives that patients can consider. Some may be used in conjunction with laser treatment for acne scars for optimum results. Discuss which is best during a consultation appointment with Dr. Cheryl Burgess during which an examination can help patients decide.
