What Are Acne Scars? When acne breakouts penetrate deep into the skin, it causes damage to the skin and the tissue beneath.
The inflammation of the acne blemishes results in acne scars. While the body naturally produces collagen to help heal the skin, too little or too much collagen production can lead to acne scarring. Depending on the location of the breakout, the acne scar can occur under the eye or lip or anywhere in your body.
There are 2 types of acne scars that depend on the production of collagen in the body:
Cutera Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment used to treat active acne and acne scars. Why choose the Genesis?
› Painless treatment
› Uses heat to kill acne by targeting oil and bacteria in over productive sebaceous glands
› Stimulates dermal regeneration
› Stimulates production of healthy collagen
› Diminishes acne scars
› Improves the overall skin texture
› Reduces redness in the skin

In conjunction with laser treatment or on its own, we also recommend SkinCeuticals acne products to assist in fighting the production of excess oil and help reduce pore-clogging dead cell buildup to help improve the appearance of existing and past blemishes, as well as prevent future breakouts.
