Treatment of Acne Scars in Beverly Hills

Acne scars are a difficult problem to treat and may require multiple strategies, including:
  • Laser treatments
  • Chemical peels
  • Topical bleaching agents

PicoSure Laser for acne scar removal

We have been quite successful at treating acne scars with the PicoSure laser. The PicoSure laser is a 755nm Alexandrite laser that penetrates to the deep layer of the dermis. This laser specifically targets acne scar pigment, including melanin and melanocytes. It also stimulates the production of new collagen to improve the texture unevenness of the skin from acne scars. The laser is gentle to the outer layer of skin and does not ablate or burn off the outer layer of skin. This is a quick procedure with minimal discomfort, and with minimal downtime. Your skin will be red for the remainder of the day, and will be nearly back to normal the next day. You will require 3-4 treatments about 3-4 weeks apart. This is an effective laser treatment for acne scars.

Precision Tx

This is a surgical procedure that is performed under local anesthesia. A fiber optic laser is used under the skin to release the deep scar tissue from cystic acne, then the skin is tightened, and new collagen is produced. The combination of these effects results in a smoother appearance.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels can used to improve the uneven skin texture and pigmentation associated with acne scarring. These are done in the office and are well tolerated. The downtime is a little bit longer with chemical peels. Often the skin will be red for a couple of days, and the entire outer layer of skin will peel, revealing a refreshed layer of skin underneath. You will also require about 3-4 treatments about 4-5 weeks apart for optimal results.

Bleaching Agent

Topical bleaching agents are useful if the acne scars also have hyperpigmentation. These agents will need to be used daily, before, between, and after the above treatments.

Avoidance of UV Radiation

Avoiding sun exposure is important in preparation for acne scar treatment. We also recommend daily use of a sun block to protect the skin with an SPF 30 or better.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
