Acne scars can ruin the appearance and texture of your skin and linger for years. These scars are under the topmost layer of the skin, which is why they’re very difficult to remove. Regular topical solutions can only address shallow and faint scars and do nothing for scars that penetrate deep into the skin. At Clini-Derma, we recommend laser treatment for Acne scar.
Acne is caused by inflammation and bacterial action. It often occurs due to hormonal issues, excessive sebum production, allergic reaction to different skincare or cosmetic products, etc. When the acne goes away, the skin overproduces melanin to heal the lesions left behind, which can cause dark spots or pits. There are different kinds of acne scars, including:
Boxcar or crater scars
Corrugated acne scars
Ice pick scars
Keloid or hypertrophic scars
Different types of scars require different treatment approaches. Our dermatologist, Dr. Doumit will carefully examine your skin to determine the nature of the scars before recommending the best solution.
Laser Treatment for Acne scar
Laser technology is very efficient in eliminating scars and pigmentation caused by acne or sun damage. The light penetrates the uppermost layer of the skin and reaches the dermis, where the scars and pigmentation are located. The laser heats the area, removes spots of overproduced collagen, encourages new collagen growth, and promotes healing.
Your skin is smoother, clearer, and more even in texture. If you have a good skincare routine and follow our dermatologist’s advice on acne scar healing, you won’t have to deal with acne scars ever again.
Is Laser Treatment The Right Choice For Me?
Many patients are intimidated by laser treatments and worry about how their body will react. We use approved and reliable laser technology that is both safe to use and provides proven results. Our treatment is suitable for people of all ages and skin type. It doesn’t cause any severe reaction aside from some redness that goes away after some time. If acne scars have a big impact on your personal and professional life, we encourage you to consider laser treatments.
What To Expect After Laser treatment of Acne scar?
You can expect some redness and discomfort after the procedure is complete. The duration of the recovery period depends on the intensity of your scars and the depth of laser treatment. If the laser had to penetrate several layers to reach the scaring and remove it, you will take time to heal. We provide detailed instructions on what you need to do to recover completely without experiencing any complications. It is a good idea to follow the instructions provided by Dr. Doumit to the letter to get the best results.
You will need a few sessions to see real results and the number of sessions depends on the depth of your scarring. Our doctor will explain all of the details after he examines your skin and determines what level of treatment you need.
