Nationally prominent dermatologist uses innovative laser technology for acne scar treatment
After surgery or battling acne, many men and women are left with an emotionally painful reminder – a scar. When the dermis is damaged due to trauma or a skin condition, the body forms new collagen fibers to mend the damage. This results in a scar that will have a different texture than surrounding tissue. A scar can be embarrassing and make people feel self-conscious about their appearance. Dr. Jeanine Downie, a nationally prominent dermatologist, personally knows the effects acne scars can have on self-confidence. After dealing with acne, she rejoiced when she found treatments that could restore health and beauty to her skin. One of the acne scar treatments available at her Montclair practice, image Dermatology®, is the Fraxel Restore Laser. Dr. Downie has performed this treatment on men and women in her office, as well as, on national television.

If you would like to explore your candidacy for Fraxel Restore laser treatment, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Downie. She will thoroughly examine the areas you want to have treated. Dr. Downie will review your medical history and ask you about your goals. If you are a candidate for treatment, she will tailor a plan to meet your needs.
Before beginning the procedure, we can ensure the utmost patient comfort by applying a numbing topical cream to the area to be treated. We use a handheld device which delivers Fraxel light energy that stimulates collagen and resurfaces the epidermis. The result is a reduction in wrinkles and scars by stimulating collagen, the protein that keeps skin firm and supple.
