During our teenage years, our bodies change dramatically and our hormones are going crazy. Breakouts often occur as our skin pores clog up with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. When they finally decide to dry up, most of these blemishes eventually heal but some can unfortunately leave scars on our skin. Fear not! Laser Acne Scar Removal is here! TRUE at Wolfson Medical Center has got you covered. With the technological revolution that is the Icon laser system, your skin will be refreshed and healthier-looking than ever!
Most breakouts will heal on their own and fade away naturally, the problem is with the pores that become inflamed or infected. These pores can cause permanent scarring on your skin. Swollen ports can spill into the surrounding pores and break the follicle wall, creating a larger lesion which takes longer to heal and doesn’t heal as smooth as the original skin.
There are two main types of acne scarring, Hypertrophic and Atrophic. Hypertrophic scars caused when the body overproduces collagen in its attempt to heal the lesions and Atrophic scars caused by the body not producing enough collagen to fully heal the lesions.
How does the laser work? The Icon Laser system uses a non-ablative fractional laser which means it doesn’t cut your skin. This laser specifically penetrates the dermis to cause inflammation below the skin’s surface, this healthy tissue underneath the skin produces new collagen which tightens and heals the skin over time resulting in much less noticeable scars.
With minimal discomfort during your treatment and improvements after each session, Laser Scar Removal is definitely worth it. However, everyone’s scars are going to be different. Three sessions is the minimum amount of treatments that we recommend but it could be more or less, which is why we invite you for a free consultation before your first treatment. We want to make you sure you get the results you expect and deserve.
