Should you consider laser acne scar removal?
Acne scars on the face or body are very common, but unfortunately they can have a serious impact on a person’s self-confidence. If you’re sick to the back teeth of being unhappy with your reflection, or wearing T-shirts to cover up even on the beach in summer, laser acne removal treatment might be the way forward.
Laser treatment for acne scars can be used on skin of any type, removing the need for surgery and letting you look in the mirror with a smile on your face – and throw away that horrible thick concealer!
How laser acne scar removal works
The process is very simple – like other laser treatments, pulses of laser light are used to break down the scar tissue and stimulate the growth of new, healthy collagen in its place. Fractional pulses of laser light break down the scar tissue and generate new tissue in its place that is the same colour as the surrounding skin and more even in texture than the scarred area was.
Depending on the size of the area we’re treating, a session can take as little as 40 minutes to complete and is virtually painless – although if you are worried about feeling uncomfortable, ask us about a cooling gel.
Like other laser removal treatments you will need multiple sessions to see results but for most people, three to five is usually enough. You’ll be able to go on with your day as soon as you leave us, as the non-invasive nature of the treatment means you’ll need no downtime.
Laser Acne Scar Removal is suitable for all skin types
The treatment can be used on acne scars anywhere on the body or face, and works on any skin type – including both very light and very dark skin. When you come in for your initial consultation we’ll be able to give you a better idea of your suitability and let you know what to expect.
