Acne is without any doubt a challenging skin condition but dealing with acne scars is even more difficult. What makes acne scarring a real challenge is finding the right product for you. Walk into any cosmetic store or a pharmacy you will bombarded with legends of creams and solutions promising to clear your acne scar in days. However, only few of them will really live up to claims. This has developed a feeling of mistrust among masses about over the counter acne scar removal creams and serums.
If you have also failed to see any improvement in the appearance of your acne scars despite trying numerous combinations of topical cream, this is probably the time to seek some experienced dermatologist’s help to find out which Acne Scar Treatment will be best for you. There are numerous cosmetic procedures that are used to treat acne scars from Microdermabrasion to chemical peeling to laser skin resurfacing. Among the most common acne scar treatments used nowadays, Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing provides the best results.
Fractional CO2 lasers work by resurfacing only a fraction of skin at a time, while leaving the surrounding skin intact. The laser beams cause tiny wounds in the dermis, accelerating not only the healing process but also natural collagen production of the skin. The healing process promotes formation of new skin cells which fill the acne scars, resulting in smoother, rejuvenated skin.
The vast majority of patients suffering from acne scars have rated fractional CO2 as the safest and most effective treatment for even deep, etched scars. Most patients achieve their desired results after one session, but you may need more than one session depending on the depth of scars and your skin type. Generally 4 to 5 sessions are enough to get maximum results; however, your dermatologist can better tell you about the procedure after assessing the nature and severity of scars.
Laser skin resurfacing is effective not only for acne scars but also for the scars caused by injury, trauma, cuts and burns. If you want to get rid of an unsightly scar and move past the painful reminders of any unpleasant incident, visit Laser Skin Care today and see dramatic improvement in the appearance of your scars after just a single session.
