“What can I do about my acne scars?” We hear this question every day. Depending on the amount of scarring, the depth of the scars and your skin type, the answer ranges from “some improvement” to “a lot of improvement”.
Although it is hard to hear that there is no procedure that can promise to completely obliterate scars, the technology improves all along.
Acne Scar Formation – How Did This Happen to Me?
Acne scars are a result of tissue destruction that came from inflamed pimples and cysts. When you had red, tender and swollen pimples, the infection literally destroyed tissue at various levels of your skin. Picking and squeezing likely made things worse, but when you have acne, it’s hard to think about anything past making it go away!
Scar tissue itself is denser than normal skin and tends to contract, so you often see young scars deepen as time passes – a good reason to treat earlier than later. Scar tissue does not share the same regenerative properties of undamaged skin since it’s missing hair follicles and a healthy blood supply. This makes successful treatment without substantial downtime more difficult and lengthy. But scars CAN BE IMPROVED!
The benefits of fractional over conventional full surface lasers are many:
- Customizable treatment levels
- Manageable downtime
- Faster healing
- Improved healing of adjacent healthy skin
- Tolerable treatment discomfort
- Much reduced infection risk
