Have issues with Acne Scarring?

You made it through those terrible teen years, but teenage acne left its imprint on your face. For many adults, this is one reminder of youth that they would rather hide in the back of the closet with that old yearbook. Whether you suffer from pockmarked or red and raised acne scarring, we can help even decades-old scars fade with our combined remedy of the Fraxel laser and our proprietary treatment, The Eraser. Performed in a series, this dynamic combination can offer significant improvement to acne scars. You spent your teen years hiding embarrassing acne – don’t let it control your adulthood too!

Your Solution to an Acne Scarring may include:

The Eraser

Average Cost: $250- $800
Recovery Time: 1-4 Days
See Results: 1-3 Months

The Eraser is Greenwich Medical Spa’s proprietary process that combines micro-needling and injections of our proprietary serum to encourage collagen production deep within the skin. The Eraser is used to lessen or remove wrinkles, fine-lines, acne scars, stretch marks and other types of scarring.

Fraxel

Average Cost: $750 – $999
Recovery Time: 7-10 Days
See Results: 3-6 Months

Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 uses patented fractional laser technology to target aging and sun damaged skin, revealing a smoother, fresher, younger looking appearance.

CoolPeel CO2 Laser

Recovery Time: 1-2 Days

The CoolPeel laser treatment offers a new way to safely and comfortably deliver the benefits of a traditional CO2 resurfacing treatment with minimal downtime. A series of CoolPeel treatments significantly reduces wrinkles, sun damage and scars, while tightening skin and shrinking pores.

This is a beautiful Med spa with a luxurious but comfortable feel. Amber is amazing!! She is by far the best! She’s not only bubbly, beautiful and sweet but is also very smart and an amazing injector of Botox and Juvederm. I couldn’t ask for more❤️

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I see my results from my treatments?

You will begin to notice results after the first treatment with full results reached after 4-6 treatments. Because these treatments stimulate your body to produce collagen and heal itself from the inside, you can continue to see improvement for up to a year following treatment.

Will my reduction in acne scarring be permanent?

If you receive the full series of recommended treatments and maintain a good skincare routine your results will be permanent.

Is there any downtime following treatments for acne scarring?

Following treatment, your skin will be sensitive, and you may experience sunburn-like redness. Mild swelling is usually seen for about three days. We will provide you with a special serum to apply for the first few days, but you can resume using regular skincare products by the third day following treatment. You should treat your skin gently for the next week or two, avoiding sunlight and alcohol based products. Cold compresses and steroid creams may be used as necessary.

Do these treatments hurt?

You may experience some discomfort during your scar-reduction treatments. Depending on the depth of the needling needed during The Eraser treatment, you may feel anything from a slight sensation to more significant pricking. Fraxel has been described as an intense prickling sensation. We can apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort, and for sensitive patients, we suggest an oral painkiller and can prescribe one for you if needed.

Are these treatments appropriate from all skin types?

The Eraser is safe and effective for all skin types. However, there is a risk of hyperpigmentation when using Fraxel on dark skin.
