Treatment for Acne Scars

Even mild acne can sometimes leave marks or scars on your skin that will not fade on their own. Fortunately we offer a variety of treatments to help repair your skin.

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Our laser evens out the skin surface and increases the formation of new collagen filling in acne scars. The collagen you form is your own and the improvements you gain are permanent.

Filler Injections

We utilize the most advanced filler products and fat grafting techniques to fill in the indentations left behind from deep acne scars. This solution is best utilized as a temporary but immediate solution combined with more permanent solutions such as fractional laser resurfacing.

Chemical Peels

Medical grade chemical peels encourage your body to replace damaged skin with more clear and smooth new skin.

Scar Excision

This surgical technique is a good cosmetic remedy for the most stubborn and disfiguring scars that are resistant to other treatment modalities. Following removal of sutures, patients can further undergo laser treatment to help smooth away suture lines.

Dermatology and Laser Group Testimonials

Came here to see Dr. Akhavan and the experience from start to finish was more than I could hope for. From the moment I booked the appointment I could tell the office is extremely well organized and thoughtful towards their patients’ needs…
Doug R., ( Via Yelp )
I cannot recommend Dr. Akhavan’s practice enough. Dr. Akhavan answers all my questions, no matter how dumb. Unlike my last dermatologist, I felt that they listened to me and allowed me to have input on decisions regarding my health care…
Patricia O., ( Via Yelp )
Dr Akhavan is an outstanding dermatologist. I went in for a skin check and he discovered an abnormal mole. Note that I was 8 months pregnant at the time…
Anda B., ( Via Yelp )
Dr. Akhavan came highly recommended by my close friend and colleague. Although I trust my friend’s word, I still checked the doc out on Yelp. As of today, Dr. Akhavan only has FIVE STAR reviews and you know what? Everything everyone says about him is true!…
Helen L., ( Via Yelp )
Dr. Akhavan was prompt, courteous and informative. I went on the day of snowpocalypse 2014. It didn’t matter, the doctor and his staff were in the office ready for my visit…
