What are Pockmarks?
Pockmarks are scars or pits in the skin left from a healed pustule from acne or chicken pox. Mild to moderate forms of acne often heal on their own; however, some moderate to severe acne can leave behind scars and embarrassing pockmarks.
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) estimates that 40 to 50 million Americans suffer from moderate or severe acne at some point in their lives. 40 percent of young people in their mid-teens will have acne or acne scarring, including pockmarks. The severity of acne as well as the genetic tendencies of one’s family can affect your chance of developing pockmarks.
Pockmarks can leave you very self-conscious about your skin in the light, how you wear your hair to “cover up” your face, your assertiveness of body language and appearance in general. As you may unfortunately know, pockmarks are difficult to conceal with makeup, and usually end up looking more obvious once makeup is applied in an effort to conceal them.
At MD Face & Body Medspa™ there are several methods of pockmark reduction, and in some cases total removal, to diminish the appearance of scars and pits on your skin.

Our pockmark removal treatments are non-invasive, greatly reducing the chance of short-term or long-term side effects. Each treatment will require preparation and time to allow your treated skin to heal. The following treatments are used to treat acne scars and pockmarks:
Deka Dot™ CO2 laser treats skin in less than 10 minutes (after topical anesthesia is applied for 20 minutes). Patients are treated from three to five times once every three weeks. After each treatment most patients can return to work or their daily activities in three days. It is our most gentle way of resurfacing the skin of the face and neck. Unlike traditional CO2 lasers, the Deka Dot laser allows patients to heal quicker and with less downtime. Most procedures can be done in the office under local anesthesia, and most patients will get good results with one or two treatments. Says one patient, “I am so happy I resurfaced my face. I struggled with cystic acne for years. Before having this procedure, I would look in the mirror and see all the damage the acne had left behind. Now I look in the mirror and have a great deal of confidence.”
