How Much is Laser Treatment for Acne Scars?

Acne scars can be a daunting skin issue to deal with. There doesn’t seem to be many over-the-counter treatments that are effective, so what can you do to fight them off? Laser treatments are a very effective solution for acne scar treatment and can give you the smooth skin you’ve been dreaming of – but what treatments are available and how much can these treatments cost?

What Laser Treatments are Available?

At The Vascular Experts, we offer several advanced laser- and light-based therapies that combat acne scars and leave your skin looking smooth and vibrant.

Forever Clear BBL

Forever Clear BBL is a light-based therapy that eliminates acne-causing bacteria and delivers heat to cells, encouraging them to regenerate. The treatment begins by shining blue light on the affected area to kill acne, followed by yellow light therapy to lessen inflammation and currently-active lesions.


HALO is a laser treatment from Sciton that combines the benefits of both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. The laser both removes acne-affected skin cells from the skin’s surface while also heating tissues deeper in the dermis, encouraging rejuvenation and collagen production.

Average Cost for Laser Treatments

Figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal that the average cost of ablative laser-based treatment for acne scars is approximately $2,000 and around $1,100 for non-ablative therapies. It is important to note that these figures are based primarily on national averages and there are a variety of factors that can influence your final cost.

The average cost of laser treatments can depend on the type of laser used for treatment. For example, ablative therapies that remove the top layer of skin cost approximately $2,000, while non-ablative lasers – those that use heat action to rejuvenate the lower layers of the dermis – cost around $1,100. 

The price you pay will ultimately depend on other factors, including the experience of the professionals you use, the number of scars you want to treat, and the size of the affected area. The price will also rise for each session you require. Sometimes, you need more than one light or laser treatment to achieve maximum benefits.

Benefits of Laser Treatments for Acne Scars

At The Vascular Experts Florida, we identify several benefits of laser treatment for acne scars:

Target multiple areas

Typically, patients imagine that laser treatment for acne will target the face, but you can also use it on the arms, back, upper torso, and neck – other areas prone to breakouts.

No downtime

Laser treatments are non-surgical and do not require prolonged downtime. Patients receiving non-ablative laser therapy can return to work immediately. Ablative laser patients can usually go back to work after a day or two, once redness and swelling subside.

Reduce skin blemishes

Laser treatment not only targets acne scars but also other skin blemishes, including fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and large pores.

Reduce breakouts

Light-based treatments can also help to reduce the likelihood of scar-producing acne breakouts occurring in the future. When Dr. Vargas and the team apply Forever Clear BBL, they first kill acne-generating bacteria with blue light and then use different wavelengths to reduce inflammation.

Am I a Candidate for Acne Scar Treatment?

If you have acne scars or active acne, you may be a good candidate for acne scar treatments at The Vascular Experts Florida. Laser and light-based treatments, such as HALO and Forever Clear BBL, are non-invasive and safe for most patients in good health.
