Acne Scars can Change how You Feel about Your Skin
Acne scars are caused by too little or too much collagen production after an inflamed pore swells and breaks the hair follicle’s wall. Acne scars are typically caused by deeper breaks in the follicle wall. The deeper breaks cause the infected material to spill out of the inflamed pore and into the dermis layer of skin. This leads to healthy tissue becoming damaged or destroyed.
Permanent scarring from acne can be difficult to remove with over-the-counter and prescription creams and lotions. Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas offers a laser treatment for acne removal. This scar treatment can dramatically improve acne-scarred skin and restore a patient’s confidence.
How Laser Treatment for Acne Scar Removal Works
Laser scar treatment selectively treats tiny sections in the deep layers of the skin while not affecting the skin’s surface layers. The light beam can be set to any pattern, allowing it to treat thousands of precise areas in a patient’s skin. The areas of untreated skin kick-start the body’s natural healing process, while the treated areas stimulate new collagen to be produced. This combination plumps up the skin and smooths the appearance of acne scars.
What Areas can Laser Scar Treatment Target?
The laser scar treatment can be used on most skin areas. The most popular areas include the face, neck and chest.
The laser treatment for acne scar removal is quick and comfortable. Most patients are out of the office in approximately 15-30 minutes. After treatment, patients can expect the skin in the treated area to be red, have minimal swelling and feel like it is sunburned. Complete healing takes place in 3-5 days, but most patients are comfortable to return to work in 1-2 days following treatment.
In the majority of patients, 1-4 scar treatments will be performed approximately 3-6 weeks apart. A highly trained member of our team will discuss the amount of treatments needed to reach the desired outcome at the first consultation.
