A horrible part of growing up includes puberty and acne that can happen during it. Whilst this does not last forever, some people unfortunately are left with scarring following a severe bout of acne.
Acne is essentially skin pores which become full of excess oils, dead skin and bacteria. When swelling in the pore breaks through follicles, lesions can form to different extremes. Some deeper than others. Your skin will naturally try to heal itself by producing new collagen fibres but scarring will occur as these will not be as smooth as the original skin and will have a different appearance.
As you get older this may become something that affects your self-confidence about your facial appearance.
The good news is that laser treatment can be extremely effective for treating acne scars.
PicoSure acne Scar Laser treatment uses powerful technology to focus on areas of acne scarring and produce laser light pulses which will break down tissue on the scar and put new tissue in the same place without harming the surrounding skin. In just a few quick and easy treatment sessions, scars are much less visible leaving behind smoother, healthier looking skin.
When you complete a few more acne treatment sessions you will notice the scarring gradually soften on the affected area of skin.
The good thing to know is that this type of laser treatment is very quick, and a very simple process. Afterwards you will also be pleased to know that you need virtually no recovery time as redness only lasts 1-3 hours following treatment, meaning no time off work is required.
The overall appearance and condition of your skin is greatly improved following a course of laser treatments for acne scarring, offering a significant reduction in the appearance of scars with improved skin texture and a clearer complexion.
