How will the smoothbeam laser improve the appearance of acne scars?

By stimulating the collagen production in the deep layers of the skin, the look and feel of scars is improved.  Keep in mind though that there is no treatment that will completely remove acne or its scars. 

How many treatments are necessary?

Usually multiple treatments are necessary and most patients see results and improvement between 6 and 8 weeks.  In most cases 4 to 5 treatments are necessary and are performed every 4-6 weeks. 

Are there side effects from smoothbeam laser treatment for acne?

Treatment can cause hyper or hypo pigmentation which means skin can appear darker or lighter. Normal skin color returns in about 2-6 weeks. Although the smoothbeam has no reports of it, scarring is a risk with any laser treatment. Any welts or blistering should heal within 1 to 2 weeks.
