We treat many patients with acne scars, many of whom are quite severe and whose lives are markedly improved by these treatments. For patients with a limited number of wide superficial scars, fillers, particularly Artefill, which is permanent, can be used with immediate improvement. Dr. Hamilton is the American pioneer in Artefill treatments, having treated the first patients in the U.S. in 1997.
More extensive and deeper scars are treated very effectively with the Fraxel 1550 laser in a 5 treatment series that does not require any downtime for healing. Improvement becomes evident in most patients within one month.
