Acne Scar Removal By LaserAway
Where are your acne scars located?
WHY ACNE SCAR REMOVAL?
Let’s face it: acne scars are no fun. But the good news is, you’re not stuck with them forever. Using Clear + Brilliant fractional laser technology, we are able to reduce the appearance of acne scars and discoloration by stimulating collagen production and replacing damaged skin with healthy tissue, leaving your complexion smooth and refined. Not to mention, you’ll get all of the other amazing benefits of the Clear + Brilliant laser facial!

Don’t take our word for it
Here’s what our patients have to say about their experience.
Clear + Brilliant Original
Dreaming of smooth, babysoft, youthful skin? Our original treatment might be for you. Using a 1440-nanometer wavelength laser, it focuses on texture, smoothing out your skin, reducing the appearance of pores, boosting collagen and diminishing fine lines. It’s best for those who have rough skin concerns, or are focused on minimizing the signs of aging.
Clear + Brilliant Perméa
Looking to even out your skin tone and sick of caking on the CC cream? Perméa might be your treatment. Using a 1927-nanometer wavelength laser, it focuses on color issues such as sun spots, hyperpigmentation and melasma. Bonus: it makes your skin more permeable, allowing it to soak up your skincare products more effectively. Talk about a win-win!
Clear + Brilliant Complete
Why choose just one? Clear + Brilliant Complete combines the benefits of both Clear + Brilliant Original and Perméa for the ultimate in customized treatment. Prevent early signs of aging, boost collagen, maintain youthful, radiant skin, and improve skin’s overall appearance, all in one appointment.
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
Once you arrive for your Clear + Brilliant laser treatment, you’ll remove any makeup or lotion. Your LaserAway clinician will then apply a numbing cream to your face, which takes about 30 minutes to take effect, giving you plenty of time to take an awesome pre-treatment selfie (okay, that part’s optional!). Then, your clinician will remove the cream and begin the treatment, which takes about 15 minutes to complete. All in all, you’re looking at 45 minutes of your day put toward removing those acne scars!
Does the treatment hurt? The numbing cream totally works (trust us!), so most patients only feel minimal discomfort that can best be described as a light prickling sensation with increased heat.
Clear + Brilliant requires little recovery time, but you will have some redness in the first day or two. Your skin might also feel a bit rough (we describe it as a “sandpaper” feeling), but this goes away in about five days.
There’s also a few things you need to do before and after your appointment to ensure safety and effectiveness.
HOW IT WORKS
Basically, it pokes millions of holes in your face. No, really! Clear + Brilliant lasers create millions of microscopic holes, or “treatment zones,” in your skin, stimulating collagen production and reducing the appearance of acne scars and discoloration, replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue.
All three types of Clear + Brilliant treatments are noninvasive and done with advanced Clear + Brilliant Touch fractional laser technology by Solta. The Original treatment uses a 1440-nanometer wavelength laser that improves skin texture, reduces the appearance of pores and diminishes fine lines, and the Perméa treatment uses 1927-nanometer wavelength laser, which enhances overall skin tone by improving the appearance of pigment issues such as melasma, sun spots, and other types of sun damage. The Complete treatment includes a customized combination of passes with both lasers.

Does acne scar removal hurt?

How long does each acne scar removal treatment last?
About 45 minutes to an hour. Your clinician will apply numbing cream to your face, which takes about 30 minutes to set. Then, they’ll remove the cream and begin the treatment, which takes around 15 minutes to complete.
How many acne scar removal treatments will I need?
It depends on your skincare goals. We find that while some results are noticeable after one treatment, most patients opt for several to truly achieve their goals, and some opt to have routine Clear + Brilliant treatments as a regular part of their SkinFitness™ regimen.
How does acne scar removal work?
We use Clear + Brilliant, a nonablative fractional laser that stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of acne scars and discoloration. It works by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones, replacing damaged tissue with healthy, younger-looking tissue.
What does an acne scar removal treatment feel like?
The numbing cream totally works (trust us!), so most patients only feel minimal discomfort that can best be described as a light prickling sensation with increased heat.
How often should I schedule acne scar removal treatments?
To maximize results, we recommend that you schedule Clear + Brilliant treatments two to four weeks apart.
Will I experience any side effects after an acne scar removal treatment?
Clear + Brilliant treatments tend to be gentle, and they’re specifically designed to minimize side effects. Immediately after your treatment, you may experience mild redness and subtle inflammation—but these side effects usually subside within a day. A few days after your treatment, your skin may develop a rough, “sandpaper” texture, but this resolves in a few days to reveal soft, supple skin. For a complete list of side effects, please consult our aftercare instructions.
How long do acne scar removal results last?
You’ll start to see results from Clear + Brilliant with a single treatment! Your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show a more even tone. And the results keep improving with additional treatments. In order to get the best results possible (and to improve your overall skin fitness), we recommend getting treated regularly as part of your skin fitness regimen. As long as your active acne remains under control, the treatments will produce permanent improvement in your acne scars.
Is there anyone who shouldn’t get acne scar removal?
Clear + Brilliant may not be suitable for treating deep acne scars or active acne. Certain skin conditions disallow laser treatments altogether. That’s why we require you to have a free consultation prior to your first treatment, where you’ll talk us through your skin history and we’ll assess whether the treatment is right for you.
