Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil. While acne is prevalent in teenagers due to the hormonal fluctuations during that age, it is also common among children and adults.
Acne scars typically form after picking, scratching, or popping pimples. Cystic acne can also leave intense hyperpigmentation on the skin which could last for a few months or even years. This could adversely affect the confidence of someone struggling with acne. One of the most effective treatments for acne scar tissue is laser treatment.
How Does Laser Acne Scar Removal Work?
During our laser acne scar removal treatment, light from a laser is pulsed onto scarred skin tissue without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. This not only encourages collagen production but stimulates cell regeneration. Due to the beams of light, expect to experience a little redness and swelling on the treated area. During the healing process, the damaged tissue is sloughed off, thus revealing the healthy and smooth skin underneath.
Other discoloration issues including broken capillaries, uneven skin texture, raised tissues, indentations, and vascular tensions that often accompany acne scars are also treated during the session. Your face will have a more or less consistent skin tone. Depending on the extent of skin damage, you may be required to come to our practice for several sessions.
Does the Treatment Get Rid of the Scars Completely?
As with any other type of scar, it is difficult to remove acne scars completely. But the scars’ appearance can be improved to the point where they naturally blend with the surrounding skin and aren’t visible.
