Thermascan Acne Treatment
ThermaScan is a non-invasive laser treatment used to reduce the appearance of active acne, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
It clears and rejuvenates skin using thermal (heat energy) which breaks up the damage deep within the skin without affecting the surface; to clear imperfections and stimulate the growth of new collagen. In the treatment of acne, the laser gently heats the sebaceous glands in the dermis to reduce the excess oil responsible for blocked pores and inflammation.
Clinical studies demonstrate that when collagen is stimulated with precise heat, the skin begins to act and look younger to repair and clear acne, wrinkles, scars and pigmentation for a more even skin tone with enhanced clarity and firmness. ThermaScan is effective on the face and upper neck—and when targeting acne, is often applied to the back, chest and shoulders where breakouts are common.
Our ND YAG Q-switched laser system offers exceptional results with no recovery period or downtime—and is considered one of the safest laser technologies available.
