Laser treatment for acne scarring

It is not uncommon for acne sufferers to develop acne scarring in their teens or early twenties.

Acne scars often cause unattractive depressions in the skin on the face; most often over the cheeks. The good news is that there is now a suitable treatment for most skin types with acne scarring – called Smoothbeam Laser.

Smoothbeam is an advanced multi-effect non-invasive laser treatment appropriate for acne scarring, active acne and collagen loss. These quick and comfortable laser treatments are highly effective in reducing active acne and acne scars and reversing some loss of collagen due to natural aging.

The Smoothbeam laser emits a wavelength of 1450nm and this wavelength has specific properties that make it capable of treating active acne. This laser wavelength is able to target specific structures in the skin, particularly the sebaceous glands — one of the causes of acne.

Reducing the appearance of acne scars

In some cases, dermal fillers can be helpful in treating severe depressions by elevating the scar. Sometimes the scars are retrained by fibrous strands and these can be incised to the acne scar.

If the acne is still active, it will need to be contained before the scarring is treated. Active acne can be treated with a variety of solutions such as retinoid creams and benoxyl lotion, to name a few.

For precise recommendation about your acne or scarring, consult with one of our skin care specialists at Wake Health Medical Group.
