The present work was designed to evaluate the efficiency of the procedure Endolift® studied to reduce skin depression and scars. Thirty patients with acne scars, mostly deep rolling, of both sex ranging from 19 to 32 year-of-age, were treated; 30% of them presented active acne. The Endolift® laser treatment is based on wavelength 1470-nm of the device Eufoton® LASEmaR® 1500 and LIGHTSCAN™ - a fractional, non-ablative laser treatment. Only one session of 300-mm diameter laser fibre inserted under the skin was performed; 70% of enrolled patients were without anaesthesia, and 30% were treated with air-cooling systems or block anaesthesia. Sixty-five% of the patients reported immediate smoothing of the scars with only one application; for the 35%, we used 2 to 3 treatments based on LIGHTSCAN™ to keep acne under control. Twenty patients with rolling scars needed only one session of treatment to reach optimal results; 10 patients with other types of acne scars reported moderate to medium improvement and needed a second treatment. Although day-by-day improvement was visible, the final result was obtained after 12 months. The treatment had permanent results, and there were no downtimes or side effects. Laser sub-incision is a game changer for acne scar treatments, especially deep rolling scars.
