Having a silky smooth skin is one of the greatest pleasures of life. It provides a person with happiness from within. There are certain issues that can take that away from you. One of the main problems in this regard are the acne scars. They are a direct result of chronic, uncontrolled acne.
In order to correct acne scars, there are numerous treatment options that can be used. They can help a person in getting rid of the problem completely. While surgical procedures traditionally have been used for this purpose, nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatments are now preferred due to their effectiveness and lack of severe side effects and little to no downtime.
Let’s take closer look at the acne scars treatments in Dubai to learn how they work.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional CO2 laser is used for this purpose. The fractionated carbon dioxide laser bores tiny holes in the skin jumpstarting the healing process. In a few days, healthier skin is formed and the appearance of the scars is significantly reduced. Collagen and elastin levels get a bump as well which further improves the appearance.
It is a noninvasive treatment which has to be provided more than once to fully remove the scars. There are some side effects and usually there is no downtime. The treatment is performed after the application of topical anesthetics to ensure that the sensations of pain are removed. Laser skin resurfacing offers the best results which are at pat with surgical scar removal if not better.
The treatment works with the help of a specialized wire brush that exfoliates the skin for healthier skin to be formed in its place. It also helps in boosting the collagen levels in the skin. The treatment is highly invasive and is performed usually after administration of local anesthesia.
The treatment has some downtime and there are certain side effects so do prepare for them. To fully remove the scars, the treatment has to be repeated a few times. Results are pretty good once the treatment has been concluded.
It is a more advanced version of dermabrasion and it is minimally invasive. It works with tiny crystals sprayed on to the skin by a handheld device to exfoliate the skin. As the skin heals, the appearance of the scars gets lesser. The level of collagen production also improves as a result.
Much like other similar treatments, microdermabrasion in Dubai also needs to be repeated a few times to get the results. There is very little discomfort which can be countered with topical anesthetics. Side effects are insignificant and there is no downtime after the treatment.
The fillers are injected in to the scar for the purpose of evening out the skin and reducing the appearance of the scars. Since the fillers are composed of collagen and natural fat, they offer great results. It takes a few days to get the best results and they will be maintained for a few months generally.
Side effects with the fillers are minimal and usually there is no downtime. There is no pain except for pinpricks during the process of injecting the fillers. After the effects wear off, new fillers can be administered to maintain the results.
