Treatments for active acne

Acne is a common skin condition characterized by pimples, blackheads, and cysts. It occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, often due to excess sebum production, bacterial overgrowth, inflammation, and hormonal imbalances. At SÁINT SAVANT Medical Aesthetics, we address these causes using advanced treatments like the Sciton ForeverClear and Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser, which target bacteria and reduce oil production to help you achieve clear skin and prevent future breakouts.

Active acne treatments help with…

  • Reducing acne-causing bacteria
  • Decreasing inflammation and redness
  • Minimizing excess oil production
  • Clearing clogged pores
  • Preventing future breakouts

Sciton ForeverClear

Sciton ForeverClear uses advanced BroadBand Light (BBL) technology to treat active acne. It delivers precise light pulses that penetrate deep into the skin, targeting acne-causing bacteria and reducing inflammation. The light energy heats the sebaceous glands, reducing excess oil production and minimizing the conditions that lead to acne. Additionally, ForeverClear promotes collagen production, which helps to repair skin damage and improve overall texture. This non-invasive treatment results in clearer, healthier skin.

Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser

The Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser treats active acne by first applying a carbon lotion that penetrates deep into the pores. The laser then targets these carbon particles, creating a controlled exfoliation process. This removes dead skin cells, oil, and debris, clearing clogged pores. Simultaneously, the laser energy kills acne-causing bacteria and reduces inflammation. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, promoting skin healing and reducing future breakouts. This non-invasive procedure provides a clearer complexion.

Treatments for acne scars

Acne scars are permanent textural changes and indentations on the skin that occur after severe acne heals. They are caused by the skin’s inflammatory response to acne lesions, leading to the breakdown of collagen. The most common types of acne scars include rolling, boxcars, and ice-pick scars. At SÁINT SAVANT Medical Aesthetics, we address these scars with treatments like microneedling, LaseMD Ultra, and HALO, which stimulate collagen production and skin cell renewal, effectively reducing the appearance of scars and improving skin texture and tone.

Acne scar treatments help with…

  • Reducing the appearance of acne scars
  • Smoothing uneven skin texture
  • Promoting collagen production
  • Improving overall skin tone and clarity
  • Minimizing enlarged pores
  • Reducing pigmentation and redness


Microneedling treats acne scars by using fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These controlled injuries trigger the body’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This increased collagen helps to fill in and smooth out acne scars, improving skin texture and reducing scar visibility. The treatment also promotes skin cell turnover, enhancing overall skin tone and clarity. Microneedling is minimally invasive and suitable for all skin types, providing improvements in acne scars with minimal downtime.

Lutronic LaseMD Ultra

Lutronic LaseMD Ultra treats acne scars by delivering non-ablative fractional laser energy to the skin. This laser targets both superficial and deeper skin layers, promoting skin resurfacing and stimulating collagen production. The treatment encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells, which helps to smooth out and reduce the appearance of acne scars. LaseMD Ultra’s precise and controlled energy delivery ensures minimal damage to surrounding tissues, resulting in improved skin texture and tone with minimal downtime.

Sciton HALO

Sciton HALO is a hybrid fractional laser that combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to treat acne scars. This dual action targets the surface and deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen production and skin cell renewal. The ablative wavelength removes damaged skin, while the non-ablative wavelength stimulates deeper tissue repair. This reduces the appearance of acne scars, smooths skin texture, and improves overall tone. HALO treatments are customizable for individual skin concerns and involve minimal downtime.

Acne & acne scar treatment FAQs

What types of acne scars can be treated with these therapies?

Our treatments address various types of acne scars, including boxcar scars, rolling scars, and ice-pick scars. Microneedling, LaseMD Ultra, and HALO can be adjusted to target these different scar types, improving the overall texture and appearance of your skin.

Are the treatments safe for all skin types?

Yes, our treatments are safe for all skin types. Each treatment can be customized to suit your individual skin tone and texture, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions. Your provider will assess your skin type and tailor the treatment settings to ensure optimal safety.

Is there any downtime after the treatment?

One of the major advantages of our acne and acne scar treatments is the minimal downtime. After the treatment, you might experience some redness and mild swelling, similar to a mild sunburn. These side effects subside within a few hours to a couple of days. You can resume your normal activities right away, but it is important to follow our aftercare instructions, such as avoiding direct sunlight and using a gentle moisturizer and sunscreen.

When will I see the results?

Many patients notice an improvement in their skin’s texture and tone after the first treatment. However, the full benefits become more apparent as your skin heals and collagen production increases over the following weeks. The final results are usually seen after completing a series of treatments, as the cumulative effect enhances skin rejuvenation and scar reduction.
