Epione Beverly Hills Helps Men and Women Put Their Best Face Forward with Cutting-Edge Acne Scar Removal Treatments; Coolaser Laser Resurfacing and Dermal Fillers Among Most Popular Solutions for Smoother, More Even Skin Tone

Nearly 90 percent of teens and young adults experience acne, and in severe cases, scarring often occurs. In response, a number of acne scar removal products and treatments have been introduced in the marketplace, all with varying results. Epione’s Coolaser Laser Resurfacing has become the ‘treatment of choice’ for many men and women in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and surrounding areas due to the significant results the treatment has produced.

Coolaser Laser Resurfacing, the newest innovation in acne scar removal, sculpts and smooths damaged skin without surgery, anesthesia or Accutane. During the hour-long treatment, the patient’s skin is numbed using a topical cream and a beam of light is used to remove the outmost layer of the skin. The extent of improvement that can be expected is based on the type and extent of the scarring, and results are generally long lasting.

Patients who have received the Coolaser treatment to combat acne scars have been overwhelmingly pleased with their results. “My acne scars are looking better and better, “ said one patient. “The Coolaser is the only thing that has worked for me. I am very happy.” Other patients remarked that they would “recommend the treatment to anyone who is considering acne scar removal, “ and that the “treatment has done everything it promised to do.”

“I had tried everything, from over the counter remedies to camouflage make-up to Retina-A, to punch grafting and dermabrasions, “ said Jennifer, a 32 year-old patient who underwent Coolaser Laser Resurfacing. “Frankly, I had given up hope. I cried when I first touched my smooth skin after my first laser resurfacing; so did my mom.”

In addition to Coolaser treatments, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse are commonly used in cases of deep scarring. During the initial consultation and examination of the patient’s skin, the proper course of treatment—Coolaser or dermal fillers—will be determined.

“It can often be devastating to realize that once your acne has cleared, you’re left with depressed or raised scars or skin discolorations, “ said Dr. Ourian. “But for men and women who are self-conscious about their acne and acne scars, it’s important to remember that this isn’t something they have to live with. Schedule a consultation with us and let’s find a tailored solution so that you can regain confidence and put your best face forward.”
