"I wish I could give this place a hundred stars! The staff here are so incredible and nice! They're really there to help you and make you feel comfortable and confident in any way that you can. Doctor Ammar and Michelle are both amazinggggg people and did a well job on addressing my concerns and helping me find the best treatments for my skin. I've had 2 sessions of CO2 laser for my acne scarring which are pretty deep and I'm already seeing some decent results! I'm sure that with some more time and treatments I'll see the results that I'm looking for thanks to the amazing workers here. I definitely recommend getting treated here! They also offer some pretty reasonable priced packages and are overall really helpful."

"Alinea has to be one of my favourite places. I have been going to them for about 8 months now. I first started with laser scar removal and Dr Ammar, took my case personal and helped me so much. I just went recently to have a Hydrafacial with Sonia and my skin is still glowing after almost a week. I have the most sensitive skin and I get irritated so easily but Sonia was able to work around it and give me the best treatment. I could keep on writing about this place non stop. So if you want the best attention from once you come in until you leave definitely visit Alinea."

Procedures for
Acne Scars Treatment

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution which reaches deep layers to remove old and damages skin and reveal healthier and youthful skin.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser Resurfacing works by treating a fraction of the skin at intervals and leaves the adjacent skin tissue intact for quick healing. After this procedure skin becomes brighter and smoother.


Microneedling is the skin-pricking process, during which your skin produces more collagen in an effort to heal the small wounds from needles.

Different grades of acne and best treatment options for each

Grade 1 acne scars

The treatment options include IPL, HydraFacial, Microneedling, Microdermabrasion in combination with chemical peels and topical skin-lighteners such as retinol, salicylic acid, lactic acid, resorcinol, kojic acid, mandelic acid, and tretinoin.

Grade 2 acne scars

Mostly surface marks with mild depressions or slightly thickened epidermis. These scars are best addressed by gentle surfacing and slight volume improvement. Treatment options include: IPL, Fraxel non-ablative resurfacing lasers in combination with chemical peels Microneedling and Microdermabrasion.

Grade 3 acne scars

This is considered “moderate scarring” with the presence of atrophic (depressed) scars or hypertrophic (thickened) scars.This type of scar needs a multi-device or combination approach to resurface the skin using FRAXEL laser, IPL to address pigment issues and dermal fillers such as Restylane® or Juvederm® for volume improvement.

Icepick acne scar treatments are treated with a specialized process. Punch excision and punch grafting involves cutting out the scar then suturing or gluing the opening together. A small scar may be left from the procedure but because it is smaller and level with the surrounding skin’s surface, it’s much less noticeable than the original ice pick scar.

Grade 4 Acne scars

This is considered “severe scarring” with severe atrophic (depressed or pitted) scars or hypertrophic (very thick) scars that remain raised even when the skin is stretched. These are the deep boxcar scars, icepick scars and deep-pit acne scars. Severe conditions like this require a series of Fraxel, IPL, and chemical peels to improve the skin’s surface. Deep depressions can be addressed with dermal fillers such as Restylane® or Juvéderm®.
