Smooth Your Acne Scars With Laser Treatment
For most of us, the formation of a cluster of spots, nodules, cysts and comedones can be disheartening, particularly when this arrives right before a crucial interview or all-important meeting. The first sign of a new spot may even provoke us to cast our minds back to our time at school, where each and every playground played host to groups of teenagers struggling to contain their breakouts, desperate for a cure-all solution to those nagging patches of acne.
But, for every person who associates acne with the trials of growing up or a momentary blemish on an otherwise clear complexion, there are those who suffer through the more severe forms of the condition. More drastic examples of acne can leave its tell-tale scars behind on the faces of those affected for years after this has cleared up. This means that even after the intensity of the condition has died down these people can never truly be rid of its significant impact on their self-confidence.
Laser Treatments for Acne Scarring
Some people may be so desperate to cut loose from the memory of acne that they turn to cosmetic specialists for help. With the power of laser treatment, the appearance of acne scars can be lessened significantly.
Ablative Laser Treatment
Used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, laser skin resurfacing can also be equally effective in dealing with the stubbornness of acne scarring. During ablative forms of this treatment, a laser is put into action to strip the top layer of skin away and trigger the production of fresh supplies of collagen, a protein that’s integral in helping our skin to heal, appear smoother and leave scars looking less intense and noticeable.
Non-Ablative Laser Treatment
Non-ablative forms of laser do not remove the upper layer of skin but, in heating up the dermis, provoke both the process of collagen production and new skin growth. Working hard to repair some of the damage left by acne scars, this less intense form of procedure may not be as effective as ablative methods of treatment but is a viable alternative to those who don’t wish to engage in any sort of recovery period.
