Over the last few months have noticed a very interesting phenomenon. I have been treating several patients with deep acne scarring (atrophic and box-car type acne scarring) with Ultherapy. These were patients who had sun damage and actinic damage and were doing the Ultherapy to get a face and neck lift. I am hearing from all of them that their acne scars have significantly improved as well.
I will start an in-formal study and treat several patients who suffer from deep acne scars with Ultherapy alone and with a combination of Ultherapy and Mixto fractional CO 2 laser and report back to you.
This could be a promising adjunctive therapy for people suffering from extensive acne scarring.
