What Are Acne Scars?

The result of inflammatory acne lesions, such as papules, pustules, or cysts. These occur when the pore or follicle becomes engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The pore or follicle then ruptures, causing inflammation and damage to surrounding skin tissue, and after healing, scars may remain.

Reasons for Acne Scar Removal

Desire to restore a smoother, more consistent texture to the skin. Such scars can be a source of self-consciousness, impacting personal confidence and emotional well-being.

Laser For Acne Scar Removal

PicoWay® by Candela USA and SmartXide Touch DOT/RF by Deka are modern technologies used in the treatment of acne scars. PicoWay® employs ultra-short picosecond laser pulses to shatter pigmentation and remodel collagen, thus reducing the appearance of scars. The SmartXide Touch, on the other hand, utilises CO2 laser technology, which resurfaces the skin by creating micro-ablative columns in the tissue to stimulate new collagen and elastin production, thereby improving the appearance of scars over time.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Absolutely, when performed by qualified professionals, laser treatment for acne scars is safe. The lasers used for these treatments are designed to target specific skin components without damaging surrounding tissue.

    The number of treatments required varies from person to person based on the severity of the scarring, the type of laser used, and the individual’s healing response. Generally, multiple sessions are necessary for optimal results.

    While laser treatment can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, it may not completely eliminate all scars.

    Most patients describe the sensation during laser treatment as a series of quick, hot pinches. A topical anaesthetic may be applied before treatment to enhance comfort.
