Comprehensive Solutions For Acne ScarRemoval

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 and technologies 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 procedures for darker skin types, we 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 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.

ProFractional Laser

ProFractional Laser is a cutting-edge laser device that uses fractionated erbium laser microbeams to create tiny, controlled injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, prompting the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. As these fibers form, they replace damaged tissue, resulting in smoother and more even skin. ProFractional Laser offers precise and effective acne scar reduction with minimal downtime.

Forever Young BBL

Forever Young BBL is a cutting-edge technology 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.

PicoSure Laser

PicoSure Laser is an FDA-approved acne scar removal technology that operates on a picosecond (trillionth of a second) laser pulse duration, significantly shorter than traditional nanosecond lasers. This pulse duration breaks down acne scar tissue more efficiently and with less heat, minimizing damage to surrounding skin. PicoSure’s precise energy delivery stimulates collagen production, facilitating scar tissue replacement with new, healthy skin cells.

Radiofrequency Therapy

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy is a cutting-edge approach for acne scar removal. This non-invasive treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy, a type of electromagnetic radiation, to address acne scars. RF therapy works by delivering controlled heat to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This, in turn, promotes the gradual remodeling of scar tissue, leading to smoother skin texture and diminished acne scars.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using a device with fine, sterile needles that create tiny micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These controlled injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin production. As new collagen forms, it gradually replaces scar tissue, resulting in smoother skin texture and reduced acne scars. Microneedling involves little to no downtime and helps you achieve clear, radiant skin.


Morpheus8 is a technology that combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling to reduce 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.


Bellafill is a dermal filler composed of tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres suspended in a collagen-based gel. When injected into acne scars, Bellafill provides both immediate volume correction and long-lasting results by stimulating collagen production. Bellafill’s unique dual-action approach fills depressions caused by acne scars while encouraging natural collagen growth, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

Suitable for ALL Skin Types

At South Coast MedSpa, we understand that not all skin types are the same, so we offer cutting-edge treatments that are safe and effective for patients of all skin types, including those with darker skin tones. Unlike traditional acne scar removal methods, which can result in scarring and burns for patients with darker skin types, our advanced techniques target and reduce acne scars without causing damage to the surrounding skin, ensuring optimal results.

Your Complete Acne Scar Removal Experience

Before acne scar removal, it’s important to follow a few simple steps to ensure optimal results. We recommend avoiding direct sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before your treatment and discontinuing any retinol or vitamin A products. Our practitioners will provide more detailed instructions during your consultation to help you prepare for your treatment.

During laser acne scar removal, our expert practitioners will use state-of-the-art laser technology to target and reduce the appearance of your acne scars. The procedure is non-invasive, virtually painless, and typically takes 45 to 60 minutes. You’ll be provided a topical cream to numb the treatment area, ensuring your comfort throughout the session.

Side Effects
At South Coast MedSpa, our acne scar removal treatments are safe and effective with minimal side effects. However, some patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, or mild discomfort in the treated area. 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 acne scar removal treatments have minimal downtime and a relatively quick recovery process. You can expect to take 3 to 5 days off from work or other activities to allow your skin to heal. During this time, you may experience mild redness or swelling in the treated area, which typically subsides within a few days.

At South Coast MedSpa, you can expect to see visible improvement in your acne scars within a few weeks of your acne scar removal treatment. The results are long-lasting, provided that you follow the aftercare instructions and maintain a healthy skincare routine.

The number of acne scar removal treatments you need depends on the severity of your acne scars, your skin type, and the type of treatment performed. Most patients require 2 to 3 sessions for optimal results. Our practitioners will develop a treatment plan just for you.
