Acne scars can linger for several years if they’re not treated promptly. Most scars are too deep and don’t respond to convention over-the-counter treatments like creams and exfoliators. At Acne Derma, we provide advanced laser treatment for acne scarring to our patients. We use the latest technologies and proven techniques to get the best results. Our experienced dermatologist will recommend different treatments for different types of scarring.
Laser Acne – Why Choose This Treatment?
Patients are often intimidated by laser treatments and consider it a last resort. Our expert dermatologist always aims to dispel the myth and help patients make an informed decision regarding their acne scarring treatment.
Laser treatment is a safe and painless treatment that can address old and deep-set scarring. The light from the laser beams penetrates the skin and eliminates bacteria, stimulates collagen, and reduces scarring. You will have smoother and clearer skin after the treatment is complete.
Types of Acne Scarring Treatment
There are two approaches to acne scarring treatment. We can use ablative or non-ablative lasers to remove scarring and pigmentation. Ablative treatment is suitable for deep and old acne scarring. It is more invasive and reaches into the dermis to stimulate collagen production. Ablative laser treatment also requires a longer recovery time.
Non-ablative lasers are suitable for mild to moderate acne scarring. It isn’t as invasive as ablative lasers and can’t be used to treat deep-seated scars. This laser treatment doesn’t destroy the epidermis and has a shorter recovery period.
Laser Acne Scarring Treatment
1. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is an in-depth treatment that goes beyond the epidermis to influence the dermis. It is an ablative treatment option that removes the topmost layer of skin over the scarring before promoting collagen production. We use different kinds of laser technologies for different purposes. The lasers we use include:
Our doctor will examine your skin carefully to understand the depth of acne scarring before recommending.
2. The Fraxel Restore Process
This is suitable for mild to moderate acne scars and is fairly painless. The laser isn’t as invasive and penetrating as ablative laser technology, which means it has a shorter recovery time. You can get on with your workday immediately after the procedure is complete.
3. V-Beam Perfecta Vascular Laser Treatment
This is a highly effective and innovative laser technology that can help with concerns like sunspots, rosacea, freckles, dilated veins, acne scars, etc. This is a safe, but intense laser treatment technology.
4. Pearl Semi-Abrasive Laser Treatment
This treatment isn’t very invasive, but it is highly effective. The technology promotes faster healing and uses the Yttrium Scandium Gallium Garnet system to get the best results. It penetrates the underlying tissue deeply and removes scarring by triggering collagen production.
