Dr. Kincaid offers additional San Diego acne treatments, including the Deka Smartxide DOT Fractional CO2 Laser – a leading-edge solution for those suffering from acne. During the procedure, a laser is used to perform a resurfacing treatment (similar to Fraxel) that permanently rejuvenates the skin and helps minimize the appearance of scars and signs of aging. There are several single and combined acne treatments available to remove scars and improve complexion depending on the patient's age and desired outcome.
Acne Treatments Include:
- Younger patients with permanent scarring from acne will benefit from multiple treatments over a span of a few months with the Deka Smartxide DOT Fractional CO2 Laser. Using this method, the patient can achieve a tightening of the skin and scar minimization, both of which deliver long-lasting results.
- Older patients seeking a reduction in acne scarring can receive more benefits from a full or mini-facelift along with laser therapy to reduce deep acne scars, tighten the skin and achieve a rejuvenated facial appearance.
- For patients who have deep, isolated scars, an acne scar excision procedure during the laser resurfacing process can provide exceptional results. This procedure will "close" the deep acne scar openings to restore a smooth surface layer to the patient's skin.

Chemical Peel Results
This is a 32 year old cosmetic surgery patient from Temecula who has been dealing with severe acne for years. The patient presented us with concerns about active cystic acne and skin discoloration as a result of acne scars. She had been treated by a dermatologist for approximately 15 years and had been prescribed every oral and topical medication to combat acne, including Accutane. The patient had also resorted to IPL treatments, dermabrasions, facials and TCA peels with no results. She came to our office to try the Vi Peel as another possible method to control her acne. To her surprise and pleasure, the Vi Peel (series of three treatments) both cleared up her active acne and bleached out her hyperpigmented skin, leading to a fresh and great-looking complexion. Prior to treatment with Dr. Kincaid, she used to wear thick foundation to cover her scars. Now she feels great about going out with no makeup on and loves receiving compliments on her glowing complexion!
