Acne Scar Removal
Acne can be a lifelong chronic condition for the vast majority of people. Scarring can happen that significantly impacts your appearance. Acne scar removal helps reduce visible marks so you can feel more confident. This treatment breaks up acne scars by removing layers of skin for a smoother appearance.
Effective Treatment for Acne Scars
There are several effective treatment options for acne scars. These procedures include dermabrasion, chemical peels, dermal filler injections, laser resurfacing and light therapies. Punch skin grafts replace scarred tissue, and fat transfers can raise depressed scars. Many of these cosmetic procedures can be done in less than an hour using local anesthesia.
It usually takes up to six weeks to see significant healing from acne scar removal treatments. You may resume normal activities right away. The surface of your skin may feel red and swollen, similar to a sunburn, for the first few days. Depending on the severity of the scars, you may need to have multiple acne scar removal treatments to achieve desired results.
Ideal Acne Scar Removal Candidates
Individuals who wish to seek acne scar removal should not smoke and be in good health. Adults and teenagers can both benefit from this cosmetic procedure. The treatment may not be beneficial for those with wrinkled skin or have a dark skin tone, especially when using laser resurfacing. There should be no active acne near the scar tissue at the time of the treatment.
