Acne Scar Treatments Portland Oregon
2 treatments with PRP

At Cascade Medical Aesthetics, our practitioners will determine your best treatment option during your free consultation. 

Our acne scar treatments consist of laser, Microneedling, and PRP/Microneedling combination which is one of the latest and greatest advancements in acne scar treatment technology. 

Microneedling uses tiny rolling needles which breakdown the structure of the scar and stimulate the formation of new collagen. Our amazing Rejuvapen is used to improve depressed scars such as acne scars and stretch marks, or raised scars such as surgical scars.

When treating scars, typically more than one treatment is needed. Over the course of a series of treatments, the scar will become softer and more evenly toned.

The number of treatments you will need for your acne scars will be determined by the type of acne. Often, a 3 treatment series is recommended for optimum results. For scar revision, more treatments may be needed depending on the severity of the scar and/or laser treatment. The Physician at Cascade Medical Aesthetics will determine what type of scarring you have and the best treatment option for you.
