Why you should get Acne Scars Treatment

The first thing that comes to mind with acne scars treatment is clearing scars and lesions resulting from acne. But there are several other goals of the treatment as well. It helps:

  • Eliminate stubborn acne scars
  • Shrink Large Pores
  • Even out skin tone
  • Get rid of acne blemishes left behind

Treatment options available:

There is a wide range of options available for Acne Scar Treatment in Abu Dhabi. Laser Skincare Clinic offers a variety of skin resurfacing treatments to help its esteemed clients restore a clear, smooth skin after suffering the pain and agony caused by acne breakouts, which often last for several years. Here are the options that you have to eliminate acne scarring:

  • Chemical Peels:

Chemical peels serve as the first aid treatment for acne scarring. A diluted acidic solution of a specific strength is applied to the facial skin. This helps remove the outer most, damaged layer of the skin and also boosts collagen levels. However, chemical peels are useful for mild acne scarring only.

  • Microdermabrasion:

It is a simple skin resurfacing procedure that uses a sandblaster-like machine to buff away the top layer of the scarred skin. It also polishes the affected areas and stimulates the growth of new skin free of scars and acne blemishes. The procedure also boosts the collagen levels to counter the scarring caused by acne.

  • Radiofrequency Treatment (RFT):

Radio frequency treatment involves use of pulsed waves that help create new skin without damaging the top most scarred layer of skin.  The RFT waves heat up collagen in the inner layers of your skin, resulting in shrinkage and tightening of skin. It also stimulates production of collagen in your skin as well as new and youthful skin.

  • Laser Skin Resurfacing/ Fractional CO2 Treatment:

Laser skin resurfacing is probably the most commonly used procedure for acne scar treatment. In this procedure a high intensity laser beam is used to cause microscopic wounds in the outer most scarred skin layer. This induces self healing in the treated areas. This boosts both collagen and elastin levels and allows newer, healthy layer of skin to replace the scarred one.

Among all these treatments, Fractional CO2 Treatment is considered as the best procedure for acne scarring and rough skin texture.

How to prepare for the procedure?

  • Avoid sunlight during the last 10-15 days before treatment
  • Your doctor may prescribe you some skin lightening cream/ ointment. Use it as directed.
  • Stop using any topical products that have not been prescribed by the doctor
  • If you have been using Isotretinoin/ Accutane to control acne, then wait for 6 months before undergoing laser treatment
  • Have a good night’s sleep on the day before treatment
  • Do not apply any cream or lotion to the face on the day of treatment

How the procedure is performed?

  • Topical anesthetic is applied to the entire face 30 to 45 minutes before the procedure
  • Numbing gel is removed from the face before the treatment
  • Using a hand-held laser device (DEKA Smartxide Fractional CO2 Laser), the surgeon will make laser beams incident on the targeted areas
  • The high-intensity carbon dioxide laser beams create microscopic holes of a specific length in the affected areas
  • The doctor keeps on flashing the laser beams until the entire face has been treated

Post-op care and the recovery time:

  • Recovery in case of laser treatment takes a few days with generally no downtime. Nevertheless, rest is highly recommended.
  • Your face will be red and a little itchy immediately after the treatment. Ice packs may help relieve the discomfort
  • Do not expose the treated areas to direct sunlight for 4 to 6 weeks at least
  • Keep your face generously moisturized to avoid any itching sensations
  • Avoid touching your face unnecessarily
  • Crusts may form in the treated areas. Avoid picking or scratching the crust. Let it come off while you wash your face

  • The results of laser skin resurfacing are the best and at par with the surgical removal.
  • The scarring subsides as the skin heals completely.

I have recently had acne scar treatment done at Laser Skin Care and I am extremely satisfied with the results. Olimpia Used Fractional CO2 skin resurfacing to help me get rid of unsightly acne scars. It just took 5 sessions and my skin is as clear as I never had any acne scars.

Emma, Dubai

I had severe acne accompanied by deep etched scars before consulting Olimpia. It’s been just four months and not only my acne is gone but the acne scars have also faded away almost 80 percent. I am hopeful the remaining scars will also go away in the next couple of sessions. Thank you Olimpia, you really are great!

Ailsa, Dubai

I tried dozens of natural remedies and OTC topical creams over the last 5 years for acne scars but with no success. But Laser Skin Care helped me get rid of unsightly scars with just 5 sessions of Fractional CO2 Laser Skin resurfacing. I couldn't be happier with my results and would highly recommend Olimpia for acne scar treatment.

Advancements in technology have not only enhanced the efficacy of acne scar treatments, but have also reduced the pain and discomfort associated with the procedure. Furthermore, the dermatologists also numb the treatment area by applying some topical anesthetic to make the procedure virtually painless. However, expect to experience some discomfort during and after the procedure, especially if you and your dermatologist have opted for Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing.
There are numerous professional acne scar treatments available to help you get rid of unsightly acne scars. But determining which treatment will be best for you is the job of your dermatologist. See some board-certified, experienced skin specialist who will first examine your skin type and acne scars before deciding the best course of treatment for you. Your doctor may also use combination treatments to achieve maximum results in minimum time.
To get maximum results, your dermatologist will first get the active acne under control, and then move on to scar removal procedure. Treating active acne is also important because if you have a skin type that is prone to scarring, new acne breakouts can leave new scars, thus ruining your doctor’s all scar removal efforts.
Studies have shown that treating acne scars while the patient is still taking or has taken isotretinoin over the last 2 to 3 months, can further worsen the situation. This is the reason, dermatologists often ask such patients to wait for 4 to 6 months after they stop taking isotretinoin. The wait time recommended by the doctor also depends on the type of acne scars treatment that you are planning to undergo.
An ideal candidate for any laser treatment is the one with fair complexion and dark hair. However, with advancement in technology, now we have lasers that work best on dark skins as well. In order to maximize the outcome while minimizing the chances of skin burn, the dermatologist will prescribe you some skin lightening creams that you will have to use for 3 to 4 weeks before undergoing Fractional CO2 Laser Skin resurfacing.
