All of us when we were growing up and moving through adolescence, had acne in some form or another. Some of us suffered a lot from it and unfortunately, it has left scaring on our faces and bodies. Acne is more prone to occur on the face, neck, shoulders and upper arms and it happens due to an overproduction of oil by the oil glands in our skin. Sebum gets trapped under the skin and the ducts get blocked, resulting in pimples on the surface of the skin. However, while it does appear when we are teenagers, many adults suffer from it as well.
When scaring from acne occurs on the skin, especially on the face, it has a long lasting effect both physically and psychologically and may affect the professional and social life of many of us. Various treatments are suggested to address these acne scars, but many are ineffective and can lead to additional health problems. One treatment, however, has stood out from the rest and it is laser treatment for acne scars.
Creates New Skin.
Laser treatment is beginning to show great results and appears to be the best way to remove scars that other methods have failed to remove. Laser and IPL (intense pulsed light) are a totally non-evasive treatment that can offer a permanent answer to scarring from acne. The procedure uses short pulses of laser to get deep inside the skins top layer and the body, by natural healing processes, removes the tissue that is damaged. The body then creates new skin with new collagen and produces brand new skin beneath it. The result is a quick and easy procedure that can be completed in super quick time depending on the size affected.
After about four to six treatments over about two months, you will see results and the scars will definitely have faded enough that they are difficult to see. Your skin will have gotten a new life of its own and you will notice cleaner and smoother skin. The great thing about this kind of laser treatment is that it can be used on all skin types from light skin to dark skin. There are different types of laser treatments available depending on the scars you have and the type of skin. Your therapist will assess your scars and make a decision regarding the treatment. All you need to do is just lay back and let them take care of you.
Types Of Treatments.
They may use the Frazel Laser which is a non-abrasive method that heats the tissue with the laser energy, resulting in new collagen being produced. Carbon Dioxide Lasers are fairly new and it vaporises the scar tissue layer by layer and recovery is between three to five days. Fractional Laser treatment, however, is the method that works best for acne scars and only treats the affected part of the skin. This allows the skin to heal faster and helps it to produce more collagen.
No matter what your skin issues are, there is always a way to treat it and get your skin back to how it looked before. Talk to your local therapist or skin analyst and see how they can help you.
