Acne is a common skin condition found in patients of all ages and can lead to acne scars on the face and other parts of the body. Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas offers a laser acne treatment and acne scar treatment to patients living in the greater Plano, Dallas and Frisco, Texas area. The Sciton broadband light technology was designed to eliminate hyperpigmentation of the skin, including acne scars.

What Causes Acne?

Acne is the most common skin disorder and is caused when the skin’s pores become blocked with dead skin, oil or bacteria. When the pore becomes blocked, whiteheads, blackheads and red pimples may appear on the skin. Acne can be found anywhere on the body, but is most commonly found on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars are the product on an inflamed lesion on the skin. Inflammation of the pore occurs when it becomes blocked. Inflammation causes the pore to swell, causing a break in the wall of the hair follicle. If the break occurs near the surface of the skin, it generally heals quickly and without any damage to the skin. In deeper breaks, the infected material spills out into the dermis layer of the skin and destroys healthy tissue.

After damage has occurred, collagen is then formed in an attempt to repair the skin. If too much or too little collagen is produced, acne scars may occur in many patients.

Patients struggling with acne and acne scars can find relief with the Sciton broadband light system, a laser acne treatment and acne scar treatment.

The Sciton Broadband Light System is an Effective Laser Acne Treatment and Acne Scar Treatment

The Sciton broadband light system utilizes low frequency photothermal energy to gently and safely heat the deep layers of the skin. The damaged cells within the skin absorb the photothermal energy and become stimulated, leading to the creation of new collagen.

This laser acne treatment and acne scar treatment uses a broad band of wavelengths to allow for more energy absorption, allowing controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. With proper treatment from a trained professional, Sciton broadband light will lead to collagen generation, production of active fibroblasts and treating over-active sebaceous glands. This combination results in the reduction of acne and improves the appearance of acne scars.

The Sciton broadband light technology requires no downtime since the treatment is non-invasive and gentle. Redness may occur after treatment and typically resolves within a few hours. The laser acne treatment and acne scar treatment is repeated 4-6 times in many patients, with treatments spaced approximately 3 weeks apart.
