Acne Scar Removal



Graper Facial Instute is proud to offer Acne Scar Removal procedures! Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers. These repairs usually aren't as smooth and flawless as the original skin.







Laser Resurfacing


This is a skin procedure that uses a laser to improve the appearance of your skin.





This procedure is usually reserved for more sever scarring. It involves removing the top layer of skin with a rapidly rotating wire brush. Surface scars may be completely removed, and deeper acne scars may appear less noticeable.


Chemical peeling


High - potency acid is applied to your skin to remove the top layer and minimize deeper scars.





Sometimes the skin around acne scars puckers. Relaxing the  area with an injection of botulinum toxin (botox) helps improve the skin's appearance. You' need to repeat the injections periodically.
