The F.A.S.T. acne scar treatment was developed by acne scar expert Dr. Schweiger at the Clear Clinic in New York City. The F.A.S.T. acne scar treatment utilizes a unique approach to treating acne scars. Rather than treat the entire face, which is the traditional method of laser resurfacing treatments for acne scars, the F.A.S.T. method treats only the acne scars themselves. This allows us to perform the laser treatment at higher energy levels, but still have faster healing time and fewer side effects after the treatment.
Up to this point, one downside of the treatment was that it is currently performed at Clear Clinic in New York City. Since we understand that not every patient with acne scarring lives in New York City, we have introduced a new program called “Fly In for Clear Skin.” This program allows people with acne scarring from all over the country to fly to New York for the F.A.S.T. acne scar treatment. The cost of the treatment is the same as the cost offered to our local patients, but includes roundtrip airfare to New York, a one-night stay in a hotel near our office in New York City, and all costs associated with the acne scar treatment itself.
