But the good news is, there are a lot of treatments available to minimize and remove the size and appearance of acne scars. The effectiveness of a procedure depends upon the type and severity of the scars. You can get rid of acne scars without undergoing surgical procedures. The most effective and safe way to get an acne scars treatment in a non-invasive approach is through laser treatment.
Why should I opt for laser treatment?
Laser skin resurfacing is considered the best alternative to surgical treatments for acne scars. This treatment is the most suitable option if you want to avoid multiple invasive procedures for different cosmetic conditions. Here’s why you should opt for laser skin resurfacing for acne scar removal;
- It gives excellent results in removing scars and imperfections.
- It works for all skin types.
- It also erases blemishes and wrinkles on your face and body.
- It improves texture, tone, and pore size.
- It removes unwanted brown spots and evens out skin tone.
- It has minimal downtime.
Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is the most recommended laser treatment because of its effective outcomes and easiness.
How is it performed?
Carbon dioxide fractional laser skin resurfacing is performed by removing layers of skin tissues in a fractionated manner, which means skin layers are removed infractions. Skin is left intact around each fraction, which aids in the healing process.
Although the process is painless, a numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area after cleansing it, so you don’t feel any discomfort. The fractional CO2 laser device is used to deliver the CO2 laser beam in a fractionated manner. The laser beam is pixelated into thousands of tiny shafts of light, which penetrate the skin layers deeply. This penetration causes small wounds. The heat generated by the laser reduces collagen and encourages the natural formation of new collagen. Cold compresses are applied to reduce the burning sensations or discomfort after the procedure.
How many sessions are required?
Three to four treatment sessions are recommended to achieve the optimal results. Some patients may require less or more treatments depending upon their needs and skin condition.
Are there any side effects?
Laser skin resurfacing does not have any potential side effects. It is a safe and non-invasive treatment. You may experience some effects for two to three days. There are no long-term side effects, and your doctor will discuss all the risks based on your skin condition.
Does the treatment cause pain?
No, the procedure is painless. You may feel a warm sensation for several minutes. However, a numbing cream is applied before the procedure to avoid any pain or discomfort.
