Acne Scars


Acne scars can be frustrating, and most scars do not disappear completely. But there are available treatments that can make them less visible.


If you have acne scars, you’re not alone. These are common for people of all ages. If you want to get rid of them or reduce their appearance, PicoWay and GentleMax Pro can help transform your skin from the inside out. These skin treatment options significantly improve acne scars. And we’re excited to show you how these gentle procedures can benefit you.

When Acne Scars Affect Your Self-Esteem and Confidence

Noticeable acne scars can make you feel extra conscious and have a profound effect on your self-esteem.

You might feel unhappy and frustrated with your scars’ appearance. You might also feel uncomfortable, and it can lead to anxiety if not addressed. Having anxiety and self-esteem issues can negatively affect your health, and before this happens to you, we at Muto Beauty in Calgary, Alberta, are here to treat your acne scars and help raise your self-esteem and confidence. We want you to feel better about yourself.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars are likely to develop due to inflammation of acne blemishes. They likewise occur when your body produces too much or too little collagen during the healing process. Too much collagen causes raised scars, while too little collagen forms depressed scars.

Certain risk factors may increase a person’s chance of developing acne scars. These include:

  • Inflammatory acne. This is often characterized as painful, reddish, and swollen. It tends to penetrate deep into the skin and eventually damages it.
  • Picking, popping, or squeezing acne. Doing any of these is a surefire way to increase the risk of scarring. It aggravates your acne and may lead to infection.
  • Delayed acne treatment. Delaying or postponing treatment can cause your acne to become more inflamed, which makes your condition worse. The longer you have inflammatory acne, the higher the risk of scarring.
  • Family history. It may play a role in developing acne scars, especially if both of your parents or family members had it.

No matter what causes or triggers acne scars, they can be treated effectively. And this is what PicoWay and GentleMax Pro can do for you.

Gentle Treatments for Making Acne Scars Less Noticeable

Acne scars, when left to heal naturally, do not go away entirely. That’s why it’s important to treat your scars once they’re formed.

Don’t just leave it to time. Reduce the appearance of your acne scars by treating them early with PicoWay and GentleMax Pro.

A PicoWay treatment typically lasts for only 15 to 20 minutes and is performed over a series of quick sessions. With minimal to no downtime, it minimizes your acne scars — making them less visible to the naked eye. You can expect initial results after a single treatment, but generally, multiple treatment sessions are needed to achieve significant improvement.

GentleMax Pro, on the other hand, is a non-surgical, laser treatment that helps diminish acne scars and makes your skin appear smoother and more even. It lasts for only 10 to 30 minutes each session. To prepare for either treatment, you may need to make some lifestyle changes, such as not smoking for at least two weeks before the procedure, no skin care products that contain retinol, and no intake of blood-thinning supplements.
