Acne scars for some people can fuel anxiety. Self-esteem and quality of life may also suffer. But there are now effective treatments available to treat acne scars.
Acne scars develop in the dermis where former cystic blemish lesions have been present. People with darker skin tones may also notice darkening (or hyper pigmentation) within the scars, while people with lighter skin tones may show redness (or erythema) within the scars. Most acne scars conditions can be corrected or minimised permanently if treated quickly and efficiently with the right treatment and product. Our cutting edge acne scar laser treatment with our 1064nm Q-switched Nd: YAG laser is an extremely popular choice for those who want naturally, healthy looking skin with permanent results.
The goals for improvement do need to be realistic however, as improvement is gradual and not absolute.Only mild discomfort is noted during treatment; with minimal downtime after each laser treatment.
Transient redness or occasionally pinpoint bruising may occur after laser treatment. This is able to be covered with make-up if necessary.
Studies have shown improvements in the skin surface and texture up to 6 months after a series of laser treatments have been completed.
