Are you struggling with acne scars? Still trying to cover up with layers of makeup? Laser acne scar removal with the Palomar StarLux 500 is an excellent option that will reduce the appearance of acne scars create beautiful smoother skin.

Types of Acne Scars

There are three main types of acne scars – depressed, raised (keloid) and discolored scars. The StarLux 500 laser system is effective in resurfacing acne damaged skin in patients suffering from depressed scars.

Depressed or pitted acne scarring is most common and is generally a result of inflammatory acne. Depressed scars lay on top of a layer of fibrous, collagen-rich scar tissue which anchors the base of the scar to the subcutaneous tissue. This prevents the growth of healthy tissue and maintains the pitted appearance.


Depressed acne scars are classified as Rolling, Boxcar and Ice pick scarring.

Rolling Acne Scar
Rolling acne scars are relatively broad depressions in the skin that have rounded, sloping edges.


Box Car Acne Scar
Boxcar acne scars are also relatively broad depressions, but they have steep, defined edges.

Ice Pick Acne Scar
Ice pick acne scars are deep and narrow scars. Most icepick scars resemble a large, empty pore in the skin.


How it works

The Palomar StarLux 500 aesthetic laser system uses laser light and Fractional skin resurfacing technology to penetrate deep beneath the skin to stimulate and promote new collagen growth from the inside out. The results are a smoother and more radiant appearance of your skin.

Depending on your desired outcome, typically more than one treatment is required to see the best results. Treatments are performed once every 4 to 6 weeks and can last from 5 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
