Acne scars are the result of inflammation within the dermal layer of skin brought on by an acne lesion. The scar is created by an abnormal healing following dermal inflammation. There are different types of acne scars, such as ‘ice picks scars’, ‘rolling scars’, ‘box scars’, and ‘hypertrophic scars’. These types of scarring can be effectively minimized through laser platforms that offer combination laser therapies to effectively address scars for best results.
Ablative treatments have been a game changer for acne scars in both full resurfacing and fractional mode offering. This is where thin layers of skin are carefully removed via laser in order for new healthy skin to regrow. Fractional technology treats only a portion of the skin, leaving healthy intact skin surrounding the treatment zones, allowing for faster healing. New advancements in non-ablative fractional therapy has also shown positive and exciting treatment offerings with less down time while delivering high satisfaction clinical results.
