What are acne scars?
Acne scars are left behind from active acne blemishes that have permanently damaged the skin. These scars may be anything from deep ice pick scars to rolling scars that are more superficial. Acne scars cannot be covered with cosmetics, as they are a textural concern, and therefore, require some form of treatment to address.
What treatment options are available for acne scars?
There are many ways in which patients can address acne scars. They may consider the following services:
- Microdermabrasion – Microdermabrasion is a special treatment that is used to exfoliate the skin while also stimulating the body’s natural healing process of collagen production, providing better texture and tone over time with several sessions.
- Laser therapies – laser light can be used to target specific acne scars on the skin and help remodel collagen deep within the skin’s surface for a smoother result.
- Chemical peels – chemical peels are used not only for acne scars but also for overall skin improvement, and are achieved with the use of combining special chemicals together for ideal results.
- Dermal fillers – for deep scars, many patients may consider dermal fillers. These are cosmetic injectables hat will add volume directly into the scars to smooth the skin and provide results for many months.
Which treatment is right for me?
Laser treatment, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels are the best solutions for rolling acne scars or scarring that is closer to the surface. Patients with stubborn scars that do not respond to these treatments, or that are deep, such as ice pick scars, may be better suited for dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are best known for bringing the depth of the scar up to the surface of the skin to provide a smoother appearance and reduce the look of ice pick scars or deep lesions.
How is laser treatment helpful?
Laser treatment is a treatment patient may consider for acne scar removal due to its many advantages. Laser treatment can target acne scars, but at the same time, improve the overall appearance of the skin. It can be used to address age spots, poor tone, pigmentation concerns, and fine lines in wrinkles. Patients who not only have acne scars but other concerns may want to think about the added benefits of laser treatment.
What is involved with laser treatment?
Laser treatment requires several sessions to see real results. These sessions should be spaced apart several weeks for optimum improvement. Patients relax in the treatment chair and the anesthetic gel is applied to the skin. This ensures patient comfort throughout the procedure. Then a special laser device is used to apply laser light to the treatment area. This results in a snapping sound and a snapping sensation, but with the use of the topical anesthetics, this does not bother many patients. Both the patient and the doctor also wear eye protection. After the treatment, the skin may be red and sensitive. However, over time, patients will see the amazing results of today’s technology. Using technologically advanced modalities is a great way for patients to see improvement in their skin faster than ever before! The Seriously Skin staff is here to assist patients ready to enjoy modern treatment options.
