Icon Laser Acne Scar Removal
If you have acne scars on your face or body, no matter how you got them, it can have a seriously detrimental effect on your self-confidence; everyone wants to be able to look in the mirror and feel happy and comfortable with what they see reflected there.
Fortunately, laser treatment for acne scars has come on leaps and bounds in recent years and can be used on any skin type, removing the need for surgery and meaning you can throw away that thick makeup forever.
It works in a really simple way – pulses of laser light break down the scar tissue and stimulate new, healthy tissue to form in its place. Quick and easy, it’s a straightforward procedure and you shouldn’t need any recovery time afterwards.
Laser acne scar removal treatment can be used on surgical or acne scars anywhere on the body, including the face. It also works on any skin type, including both very light and very dark skin. We’ll tell you at your initial consultation whether you’re a good candidate or not.
Acne is the result of skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Unfortunately, when the pore swells enough to break the follicle wall it can lead to lesions. This can be temporary lesions which heal fast or if the infected material spills out onto the surrounding skin it can lead to deeper lesions. Your skin will naturally try and heal these wounds with new collagen fibers but unfortunately, these are not usually as smooth as your original skin and can show up as a different colour or texture, and that is how you end up with acne scars.

How does laser acne scar removal work?
Laser acne scar removal works by focusing fractional pulses of laser light onto the area of scaring, which breaks down the scar tissue and helps to generate new tissue in its place. This new tissue is the same colour as your natural skin and will now be coming through with a much evener texture. As you continue with treatments you will see your scarring begin to fade away.
How many laser acne scar removal treatments will I need?
Most people require 4 to 8 treatment sessions for desired results depending on the scar. Once you come in for your laser acne scar removal consultation, the technician will be able to estimate based on your condition.
Am I a good candidate for laser acne scar removal treatment?
Chances are, yes! Most people are suitable as the laser can be used on all skin types, even very dark or very light skin. We’ll discuss your suitability with you at length during your initial consultation.
What results can I expect during an acne scar removal treatment?
You can expect to see an overall improvement in the tone and texture of the scar. A series of treatments may be required for desired results. Treatment plans can be adjusted to fit everyone’s lifestyle.
What causes acne scars?
Acne scars are caused when there’s a problem with the skin’s healing process. During the healing process, the body produces collagen — a substance that gives the skin support. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, you will get a scar.
If there’s too much collagen, the scar will be raised. This type of scar is more common in those with darker skin. If the skin produces too little collagen, depressions or pits form in the skin. This type of scar is more common in pale skin types.
