Laser for acne Scars
The laser treatment for acne scars aims for minimising the appearance of scars from old acne outbreaks. During the laser treatment, the laser focuses light on the deep layers of your skin for breaking up the scar tissue. Simultaneously, the treatment directly impacts the growth of new and healthy skin cells which eventually replace the scar tissue.
The kind of Laser treatment for acne scars that will be exercised will completely depend on your doctor whom you are consulting. Once the consulting process is done, the doctor will decide the best kind of treatment you can go through depending upon your skin and several other factors.
Primarily, there are two ways in which laser treatment for acne scars actually works. First, heat from the laser is used to remove the top layer of your skin which is having a scar. During the procedure, the top layer of your scar peels off, offering your skin a smoother and enhanced appearance. In this manner, the appearance of the scar turns less noticeable.
Apart from this, laser therapy also encourages the growth of new and healthy skin cells. Laser causes controlled damage of the skin which induces collage. Blood flow is drawn to the area by the heat of the laser, reducing the inflammation as blood vessels in the scars are targeted.
Well laser is basically a energy source and different kind of energy can be used for acne laser treatment –
- Ablative Laser – CO2 Laser
- Non-ablative Lasers
- Radiofrequency based devices like – MNRF Micro-needling Radio-frequency
Usually, the face is the prime target whenever someone opts for laser therapy for acne scars. But interestingly, the treatment can also be applied to other areas where acne scars tend to appear. Some of the typical targeted areas include:
- Upper torso
CO2 is very aggressive laser which targets water in skin. The laser beam penetrates the upper layer of skin and reaches in dermis where it control damage to induce collagen. This is an old technology.
- Good result require 3-5 sitting for 30-6=70% result
- Cost effective
- Downtime 7-10days
- Chances of post-inflammatory pigmentation
MNRF (UltraCel) is called energy based device, which can induce collagen by 2 ways
- Mechanical damage of skin by pins
- Thermal damage by RF energy
MNRF is effective in small and deep scars, although result may vary from person to person. Some advantages of MNRF over CO2 Laser are –
- Less downtime
- Result can be equivalent
- Easy to use by doctor or staff
- Less chances of side effects
Once you are done with the laser treatment for acne, you had to stay vigilant about your skincare. The skin turns more vulnerable to damage from the sun. Thus, using sunscreen before you step out of your home is a recommended activity.
Even your consulting doctor can provide you with special skincare instructions that will help your skin to turn healthier in your healing phase. You could use special toners or moisturisers for maximising the effects of your treatment.
