Acne scar removal using laser technology is an excellent solution for those suffering with ice-pick and rolling scarring that have been left with indentations and unevenness on the skin. ResurFX is a not ablative fractional laser, meaning less down time than ablative lasers such as CO2 or Fraxel.

The AcuPulse at KLNIK allows for advanced treatment of a variety of severely damaged skin lesions which require synergistic coagulation and ablation for advanced resurfacing. Results are seen from just one session! Acu Pulse is conducted by medical professionals.
Following the procedure, down time will be 1 week and some skin prep products may be needed, which will be discussed at the consultation. If you are looking for faster results for your acne scarring Acu Pulse laser resurfacing is a great alternative to longer drawn out treatment programmes. It can also be supported by other treatments such as Canula subcision and filler with Dr Rosh.
Cannula Subcision with Dr Rosh
This is a minor surgical procedure carried out on tethered deeper acne scarring. Cannula subcision is best for small areas such as acne scarring. A small hole is made in the skin with a needle. Followed then by a cannula just below the skin. The cannula is used to separate the bands of scar tissue that are pulling the scar down. This releases the indentation and allows the surface of the skin more movement.
At KLNIK we have a variety of cannulas of different sizes and lengths, Doctor Rosh will choose the most appropriate for your scarring. Cannulas are relatively blunt, so they are the prefered choice over a needle as they are less likely to damage blood vessels and nerves which would also lead to bruising.
