Your doctor repeatedly moves a laser wand over your skin to remove damaged skin cells and diminish scars. Laser treatment can help:

  • Injury scars
  • Burn marks
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars

Laser scar treatments don’t make a scar disappear. Instead, they’re designed to make a scar appear less noticeable. The body begins the process of repairing a wound after a skin injury. A scab develops over the injury to protect it from germs, then eventually falls off. Sometimes, the skin underneath a scab is the same color as the rest of the body. However, depending on the depth of the injury, a scar often remains after a scab falls off. These scars may fade or become lighter with time. When a scar becomes permanent, laser treatments can be used to remove the outer layer of the damaged skin’s surface. They basically smooth the skin to improve tone and appearance. These lasers are also used to target blood vessels in the scar tissue and reduce redness. They can also penetrate the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of new skin cells.

 

Acne scars are usually blemishes that have been left behind by inflamed pimples or because of skin pores that have become swollen by accumulated oil, dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria. These swollen pores cause a break in the walls of the follicle. If the break is deep then the infection can spread to the surrounding tissues leading to deeper blemishes or bruises. Although the human skin owing to its repairing nature tries to repair these bruises, the results aren’t as flawless as the original texture of the skin.

 

Different people have different reasons for getting their acne scars treated. Some of these reasons are; improved appearance, better skin health and improved self-esteem/ confidence.

There are mainly two kinds of acne scars; hypertrophic or keloid scarring where the scars are the result of the body producing an excess amount of collagens. The second kind, atrophic or depressed scars form as a result of loss of tissues.

 

Laser treatment makes use of micro-fine laser lights to go into the skin’s very deep layers and work to better the skin’s support system. These short pulses of light stimulate the skin’s natural rebuilding tendencies to repair the damaged tissues and cells leading to the formation of new collagens and elastin. Collagens and elastin are the very essential building-blocks of healthy skin.

 

The best acne scar treatment for you will depend on the extent of your scarring, the desired results, and your skin type. For this reason, you should book a consultation with our trained and experienced practitioners who will assess your skin. In some cases, combining multiple treatments may have the best effect. If you are suffering from live acne, you need to wait until your acne is under control before seeking acne scar treatment.
