We Use Cutting-Edge Lasers:

South Coast MedSpa offers the full solution for those who suffer from acne scars and skin pigmentation, with our state-of-the-art technology and treatment. Our advanced lasers can be used to treat any skin type. We use multiple modalities to target the different layers of the skin to properly remove the scars and generate new and glowing skin.

Many clinics are not able to properly treat darker skin tones, but with SCMS’s specialized procedure for darker skin types, we are able to maximize safety and results. This is just one of the reasons that South Coast MedSpa has been recognized as a global leader when it comes to treating acne scars on all patients, of all skin types from all over the world.


At South Coast MedSpa, we use state-of-the-art lasers from Sciton, including the ZoomScan Er:YAG 2940nm laser. ZoomScan is a full-field skin resurfacing tool that can dramatically improve the appearance of deep-set wrinkles, rough texture, and scar tissue. With ZoomScan, we can customize the level of resurfacing based on each patient’s unique skin concerns and goals. ZoomScan allows us to personalize the treatment and smooth away deep acne scars. The ZoomScan is paired with the Profractional fractional ablative laser to remove deep scaring while ensuring minimal recovery time.

Forever Young BBL

Forever Young BBL is a cutting-edge technology from Sciton that uses broadband light to treat many skin conditions, including acne scars. The light energy penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and reducing the appearance of scars. Additionally, Forever Young BBL can improve skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimize pore size. We use Forever Young BBL and other laser treatments to achieve optimal results.


Morpheus8, powered by advanced radiofrequency technology, is a revolutionary RF microneedling treatment that effectively reduces the appearance of acne scars. By stimulating collagen production and safely correcting signs of skin damage, Morpheus8 improves the texture of the skin, minimizing scars, visible pores, deep wrinkles, stretch marks, and uneven skin texture. This non-invasive treatment provides remarkable results for acne scar treatment, offering a safe alternative to traditional methods.

The Science Behind Acne Scar Removal

Laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective method of treating acne scars. The process involves using a laser to remove the top layer of damaged skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process to produce new skin cells and collagen. At South Coast MedSpa, we use an advanced laser to resurface the skin and stimulate collagen growth. The laser targets the deep layers of skin while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Over time, the new skin cells replace the damaged tissue, resulting in smoother and clearer skin.

Your Complete Acne Scar Removal Experience

Before your laser acne scar removal, it’s important to follow a few simple steps to ensure optimal results.

Our practitioners also provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results.

Side Effects
At South Coast MedSpa, our laser acne scar removal treatments are safe and effective with minimal side effects.

These side effects typically resolve within a few days, and our expert practitioners will provide aftercare instructions to minimize potential risks.

At South Coast MedSpa, our laser acne scar removal treatments have minimal downtime and a relatively quick recovery process.
