This is what the patient above had to say:

"For years I suffered from having to deal with acne scars. I saw many doctors and non 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 Seatle just to get this treatment done and it was well worth it!" - Ator A. May 2016 Eastern Indian 20's something female with darker skin from Ontario Canada

Case 2

This is our patient's personal account and photo diary of her healing from the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment:

This is the patient’s Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment Before Picture below. She mentioned that she “…didn’t like the discoloration and the depressed scars. I had laser resurfacing done in the past along with other procedures and it improved the scars a little bit but I was hoping for more improvement.”

Acne scar vitalizer before 1

What you can see in the picture are some rolling, depressed scars. Her skin has some areas that have lost some pigmentation and she looks like she has a few active acne pimples occurring. Most of her scars are concentrated in the cheeks, temples and forehead areas. Some of the pictures that are to follow were taken with less definition and are not as clear. This patient was from out of town and could not take pictures with a high definition camera.

Acne scar vitalizer day 2

Day Two Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment: The picture above is 2 days after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. She was worried about the swelling in her eyes “…Is this normal to have my eyes so swollen. They are almost swollen shut. The crusting is getting worse to. I can’t seem to get it off good enough. ” At this point, I told her that it is really common to have swelling and sometimes your eyes can get swollen shut. The swelling is worse the first 2-3 days after the procedure. Whereas the first day, the swelling is not really that bad. Oral steroids can help with the swelling but it could interfere with the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment Process. So we tell people to wait it out. For the crusting, you really need to clean it every 1-3 hours. Sometimes, it helps to use cotton balls soaked in the vinegar water solution (1 teaspoon of vinegar in a quart of water). You can find out more about cleaning for the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment here which is under our cO2 Laser Resurfacing page.

Acne scar vitalizer day 5

The above picture is Day 5 after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. She was vigilant in cleaning her face. To improve her removal of crusting, along with using cotton balls to apply the vinegar and water solution, we also advocated immersing her face in a bowl of the cleaning solution. This helps get the crusting off as well. The cleaning for the Acne Scar Vitalizer is like our cleaning for our co2 laser resurfacing procedure. You can read more about this in this link: cO2 Laser Resurfacing

Acne scar vitalizer day 6

The above picture is Day 6 after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. The crusting appears to have improved. It is also healing well. The facial skin is pink and this will get better over time.

Acne scar vitalizer day 7

The above picture is Day 7 after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. This is a clearer view of much of the same as day 6. The cheeks are the areas that are taking a little longer to heal. This is the area that we were more aggressive with and so we expected the prolonged healing in this area.

Acne scar vitalizer day 8

The above picture is Day 8 after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. She is a little less pink and her scars are looking better. The concentration now is on the left cheek. The other parts of her face don’t need any more vaseline just the raw area of the left cheek and continual cleaning of the left cheek.

Acne scar vitalizer day 9

The above picture is Day 9 after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. Here is a clearer picture of her healing with a more high definition camera to show the healing better. Again the left cheek is the area that is need of more cleaning and vaseline. Sometimes patient clean too much in these later stages and this can actually hinder the healing. Sometimes trying to slow down on the healing can help speed things up. At this later stage, I often find that if healing is slower than usual we back off on the cleaning and find that the raw area heals faster.

Acne scar vitalizer day 15

The above picture is Day 15 after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. The patient is in another country and this is her healing 15 days after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. The raw area on the left side of the cheek is healed over. We will add more pictures in the future for you to see clearer pictures of her healing and how her scars have improved.

Acne scar vitalizer before 1

Acne scar vitalizer day 37

The above picture is Day 37 after the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. This is her result after 37 days. She is all healed and her scars are looking great. She will keep getting better over time. We will add more photos as we get them for you to see her healing. The before photos are above for you to compare.
