Acne Scar Reduction Treatment
Reducing the appearance of scars with laser therapy
Lasers have long been used for their healing properties have been known to reduce scars by enhancement of the natural healing process of the skin. laser light artificially induces the natural reaction to damaged skin – which is the creation of new skin. This is referred to as laser resurfacing which is applied to precise depths of skin. For deeper (atrophic) scars the production of collagen will be stimulated with the laser, causing the natural properties in the skin to ‘fill out’ the scar, creating a smoother more desirable appearance. In some cases where severe atrophy has affected the patient multiple applications may be required and it is likely that your scar may not disappear altogether.
