Several Different Approaches
Acne Scar Treatment for Persian Skin
For Persian patients with acne scars I prefer to use the Ematrix. The Ematrix system uses Sublative RF- fractioned bi-polar radio frequency technology to effectively place heat energy into the dermis. This causes deep dermal impact with minimal down time. The reason I choose the Ematrix is because the RF technology is safe and effective for all skin types. The Ematrix treatments can improve your scars over time with a series of treatments.
For the Redness I believe that Vbeam Perfecta is the best laser. Vbeam is a pulsed dye laser that is gold standard for removing Red on the skin. It is excellent for red acne scars, broken capillaries, rosacea, port wine stains and many other conditions. Typically you would need a series of treatments to see best results.
Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see what treatment is best for you and how many sessions you will need.
