“My goal was to find a method to bring back a person’s natural youthfulness without the operated, unnatural look and that is why I have my patients bring in photos of them when they were age 5 to 30. My YoungVitalizer helps restore natural and youthful contours they haven’t seen in years.”

Although no scar can be completely removed, Dr. Young can improve and reduce the appearance of a scar using one of many tools such as cO2 laser, dermabrasion, derma sanding, excisions, fat grafting, fillers, intense pulse light, steroid medications or tissue rearrangement treatments.

Patients from around the world (including Canada, China, Italy, Netherlands and Singapore) come to our office for treatment to improve their scars.


The geometric line closure is vital in making a scar look better. Many of the scars have a noticeable pattern such as a straight line longer than 0.7cm. The randomness of the geometric line pattern hides the scars better.

Dr. Young will show you how he will pattern your scar revision. He often uses special suturing and specific type of closure that prevents the scar from widening during a scar revision treatment.

Dr. Young will explain how this procedure will benefit your scar appearance. After proper healing and as early as four weeks, you can be eligible for laser resurfacing for further improvement on your scar appearance. Dr. Young goes out of his way to reduce the appearance of your scar and make it look organic to your body.


Once the geometric line closure technique has been completed, Dr. Young then performs laser resurfacing and other resurfacing techniques (dermabrasion, derma sanding) to continue improving the appearance of your scar. What happens is the skin randomly heals with the scar allowing it to blend at the superficial layer.

There are many different ways Dr. Young can improve your scar through laser resurfacing using traditional resurfacing methods, cutting the scar down to the level of the skin or raising it so the skin builds up. Dr. Young will go over all the different techniques and show you how he is going to ameliorate your scars.

“I just wanted to leave a note and say that my procedure with Dr. Young approximately 6 years ago took years off my face. He did an excellent job and I am still enjoying the results. It was very much worth the downtime. I look exactly like myself, just younger. Thanks, again!”

— C.J., 40’s caucasian female from North Lynnwood, WA

“He gave me my confidence back that I thought I would never get back. I can now look in the mirror and actually love what I see and not have to deal with pitted scars in my face. If you or anyone you know who thinks they have to just live with these scars, don't!”

— Ator A., 20’s Eastern Indian from Ontario, Canada

“My procedure went great and I left the office with no concerns and all of my questions answered. I have never felt so good about myself and my appearance. I have you to thank for that Dr. Young. My new nose is perfect, I cannot thank you enough for this new look on life.”

— Nicole R., Fabulous Rhinoplasty

The acne scar vitalizer treatment is a procedure that was developed over more than 12 years of clinical experience. The process uses five to seven steps to treat acne scars from multiple different levels. The central focus is located in the hair follicle because it extends deep into the layers of the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue.

If only superficial techniques (like laser resurfacing) are used, it will not treat all of the scars from acne. You need a multi-layered approach (such as acne scar vitalizer treatment) to get the best results. Through this technique, Dr. Young will treat each and every scar on your face and get the best results available today.

Dr. Young’s unique method treats all variations of acne scarring through a five to seven step process that takes two hours. You should see major results with just one treatment. And the results are permanent because no temporary procedures, like fillers, are used in the process. Dr. Young has gotten great results for people who are just like you!
