Acne and Acne Scars

Many acne patients use prescription medication, but in some cases it just does not seem to help. They come to Althea and ask us if we can help. Fortunately, we can say “Yes!” We offer some of the best laser treatment for acne scars that you’ll find. You’ll be able to receive treatment from qualified professionals who can help ensure you successfully get rid of acne and acne scarring. We have the expertise and equipment necessary to give you some of the most effective treatments for acne available.


In recent years, laser acne treatment has been shown to significantly reduce acne. At Althea, our primary skin care tool in fighting acne is our erbium/pixel laser. This laser reduces acne scarring by resurfacing the skin. Its heat also effectively kills active bacteria at the depth below the skin’s surface where it grows.

Sometimes, when acne lesions heal, the skin becomes discolored to a dark brown or red color. We use IPL treatments as well to reduce and remove the brown and red pigment associated with this “post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation” (PIH).

Lasers can be safely used along with skin rejuvenation medications. We just pause the medications for a few days before and after the laser treatment to avoid a compounding effect. This way your skin heals as naturally as possible following the treatment.

Lasers can be used on both teens and adults. Age is not a factor for our acne laser treatment.
