"For years I suffered from having to deal with acne scars. I saw many doctors and none who came close to Dr. Philip Young. He truly is amazing and has hands that work magic. I'm so greatefull to have found him. He gave me my confidence back that I thought I would never get back. I can now look in the mirror and actually love what I see and not have to deal with pitted scars in my face. If you or anyone you know who thinks they have to just live with these scars, don't! Call Dr. Young and go see him now! He won't disappoint, I promise. I flew from Canada to Seattle just to get this treatment done and it was well worth it!" - Ator A.

The Beauty Advantage: Are you tired of feeling self conscious about your scars? Do you feel like people are staring at your scars more than listening to what you're saying. Just like some of these people, you can have these same results. Changing those scars that you've had for all of those years can possibly change your life for the better. As the discoverer of a New Theory on Facial Beauty, Dr Young knows the power of beauty. Some call it superficial or vain. On the contrary, Dr. Young thinks it could be one of the deepest things that people find important. As you might have seen many times before in your life, beauty gives certain people many advantages that are often overlooked. The question really is "why is Beauty so important to us?" According to Dr. Young, it all comes down to our appreciation for order. We want order in our lives because that's what make us happy. Beauty is order in the face. With Acne Scars, this order is highly disrupted. Thus, reducing your scars can bring some of this order back and with it possibly many of the benefits of beauty.

Treat all of your acne scars with one treatment that can be done in about 2 hours with the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment:

We have been continually improving our approach to acne scarring over the past 15 years. We do not believe that acne scarring can be treated with co2 resurfacing alone. Although some scars can be improved with co2 laser resurfacing, many siutation require more than this approach. In order to treat ice pick scars, boxcar scars, depressed scars, elevated scars, and pigmented or red scars, etc you need a multiple-step approach that treats acne scars from multiple levels and layers. We have a 5-7 step process that is all done in one treatment in about 2 hours that can attack all of those elements of acne scars. It incorporates using laser resurfacing, further resurfacing techniques, volumizing in the deeper layers with multiple approaches as well as individual treatment of each scar based on the particular qualities of that scar.

Why do we have to be concerned about acne involving all the layers of the skin?

Acne involves and is centered around the hair follicle. The picture below shows the hair follicle as it extends into multiple layers of the skin including the epidermis which is at the top and the dermis which is further below. Even further below the subcutaneous tissue is found as can be seen by the fat globules in the picture. Below the subcutaneous tissue is the location of the muscles. As you can see because the hair follicle extends so deeply, when the hair follicle gets plugged and then infected, it can involve all the layers of the skin. Treatment of the superficial layers of the epidermis and the most superficial layers of the dermis, leaves a lot of the acne scarring that is located deeper. The better approach that gets better results is treating all of these layers through the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment.
