The Science Behind Acne Scar Removal

At South Coast MedSpa, we perform acne scar removal using two advanced technologies – ZoomScan Er:YAG 2940 nm laser and Forever Young BBL. Both methods have unique mechanisms of action, and our medical providers select the appropriate technique or combine the two based on the patient’s specific needs. Our state-of-the-art lasers are meticulously designed to cater to all skin types, and tones, ensuring safe and effective acne scar removal.

With our multi-modal approach, we precisely target different skin layers, effectively removing scars and unveiling renewed, radiant skin. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide specialized procedures specifically tailored to darker skin tones. This commitment to inclusivity allows us to deliver exceptional safety and outstanding results. It is this dedication that has propelled South Coast MedSpa to become a global leader in the field, trusted by patients from all walks of life and every corner of the world seeking effective laser acne scar removal in Newport Beach.


ZoomScan is a cutting-edge laser technology that delivers precise energy to the treatment area using an Er:YAG 2940 nm wavelength. This laser vaporizes the damaged tissue and stimulates the production of new, healthy skin cells. The laser penetrates the skin’s surface, resurfacing it and promoting collagen production. By creating microchannels in the skin, the laser energy breaks down the scar tissue, reduces inflammation, and improves the overall texture and appearance of the skin.

Forever Young BBL

Forever Young BBL, also known as BroadBand Light therapy, delivers pulses of visible and infrared light to the skin. This light penetrates the skin’s surface and heats the targeted tissue, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. The energy delivered by the device stimulates collagen production, reduces inflammation, and improves the skin’s texture and tone. Forever Young BBL also targets and corrects hyperpigmentation caused by scarring, reducing the visibility of discoloration.


Morpheus8, a revolutionary RF microneedling treatment, harnesses RF energy to heat tissue beneath the skin, stimulating collagen production and effectively reducing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. This non-invasive alternative offers remarkable skin texture and appearance improvements, and provides safe and advanced acne scar removal in Newport Beach.

Your Complete Acne Scar Removal Experience

Before your acne scar removal, it’s essential to take some simple steps to prepare yourself. To get the most out of your treatment, you should avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before the procedure. It’s also crucial to discontinue retinol or vitamin A products for at least one week before the procedure.

During your acne scar treatment, a topical cream will be applied to the treatment area to numb the skin and minimize discomfort. You may feel a mild warming sensation during the procedure, but most patients find it tolerable. The treatment lasts 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of the scarring and the treatment plan. Our experienced medical professionals will guide you through the entire process.

Side Effects
While acne scar removal is generally safe and well-tolerated, some patients may experience mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, or slight discomfort at the treatment site. These symptoms are usually temporary and should subside within a few days. Our medical professionals will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions.

Most patients can resume their regular activities immediately, as the procedure has little to no downtime. However, avoiding direct sun exposure and protecting the treated area with broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential. Our medical professionals will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery.

You should see visible improvements in your skin’s texture and tone within a few days of acne scar removal. The results can continue improving over several weeks, with optimal results typically achieved after a few months. The acne scar removal results can last for years, especially when combined with good skincare practices and lifestyle habits.

The number of follow-up treatments required after acne scar removal in Newport Beach, will depend on the extent of scarring and the desired outcome. Typically, 2 to 3 treatments are required, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Our medical professionals will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals.

I strongly recommend anyone who is suffering from acne scars to come to South Coast Medspa: The staff is amazing, they will guide you through the entire process and answer any questions you might have. The treatments were great, there were some pain during and after the treatment but it was not something you couldn't bear; it went away in less then 2 hours. Importantly, I am very happy with the results.

I have Bellafill sessions with Courtney for my acne scars and she did an amazing job with attention to detail. Aside from visible scars, some of my small rolling scars which never gotten an improvement before had been smoothed out and raised up to skin surface. I highly recommend Courtney for candidates who are looking for scar and skin texture improvement.

Gladys Alarcon

I’ve been going to SCMS for a about two years now. Mainly I go to the LA office but my last two treatments have been at the Newport office. My experience for both treatments have been really good. I had a laser treatment done back in September for acne scarring and a VI Peel done yesterday. Both practitioners were outgoing and friendly and the staff is courteous as well. I will definitely go back if I require more treatments.


My experience so far has been nothing short of wonderful. Shelby at reception has a very kind and nurturing personality that instantly put me at ease and Courtney the PA has made me like how I look in the mirror again...
