Remove Acne Scars with JOULE™

You’re finally past the embarrassing acne that agonized you in your teens—and 20s! You’d love to pose for pictures again, but acne scars still make smiling for selfies unimaginable. Until now. With the JOULE aesthetic laser system, you can finally put your acne story behind you—for good.

How Does JOULE™ Acne Scar Removal Work?

JOULE is a specialized aesthetic laser system that J. Ryan Rice, MD, FACS, with Penn Highlands Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery in DuBois uses to remove or greatly improve the look of acne scars. Its advanced technology allows Dr. Rice to tailor each treatment to his patients’ unique skin types, making it an appropriate option for nearly everyone. Highly precise concentrated wavelengths are targeted at problem areas to break down scar tissue and stimulate the skin to repair itself while protecting surrounding healthy skin. Treatment also encourages collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother skin after healing.

What to Expect with JOULE™ Acne Scar Removal

Dr. Rice performs JOULE laser acne scar removal right in his DuBois office in about 30 minutes. Desired results are typically delivered in just one or two treatments as opposed to three to five using traditional resurfacing treatments. Because the system uses a gentler yet more effective light source, acne scar removal with JOULE is much more comfortable than traditional fractional resurfacing.

Best of all, the side effects are minor. Patients may experience some soreness in the affected area, but most are able to return to their normal routine soon after treatment. Makeup can be worn again 24 hours after the procedure.
