Combating Acne Scars With Pixel Laser Resurfacing
Acne scars are a bane for many people across this county. There are estimates by the American Association of Dermatologists that put the number of people affected by acne in the United States at close to 50 million. This means that there are just as many people around the United States who have to live with the ugly scars that are left behind by severe acne. But it doesn’t have to be so. Thanks to pixel laser resurfacing treatment, you can banish the scars completely and live a better life with radiant and beautiful skin. Let us tell you how pixel laser resurfacing can help you put acne scars behind you.
What is Pixel Laser Resurfacing Treatment?
Pixel laser resurfacing treatment is a process where laser beams are used to make tiny holes in your skin, the effect of which is to stimulate it to produce more collagen which in turn leads to a smoother and tighter skin. In case you are wondering, collagen is a structural protein found in the skin that holds skin tissue together. The more collagen you have, the tighter and firmer your skin will be. The other effect of this treatment is to remove the outer layer of the skin (with its associated scar tissue) so as to reveal a smoother and healthier skin underneath. This entire process is safe and approved by the FDA.
How Pixel Laser Resurfacing Works
When you book an appointment at our clinic, our dermatologists will assess your skin and recommend what procedure would be best for you to undertake. They may also recommend that you don’t have a tan a few weeks before the procedure as a tan might affect your skin’s ability to absorb the laser light. Once you get the green light, you will start treatment and you should begin to notice some change as soon as the first session is done.
Results and Duration
Depending on the level of scaring, results may vary in duration. The tightening of the skin begins immediately after the treatment and the results become more pronounced as you continue the treatment. Typically, patients need about 5 treatments (running 4 weeks apart) to see scar tissue fade. One of the advantages of this process is that there is no down time and you can schedule treatment sessions in between your normal working day without any interruptions. The other advantage of this process is that it is not painful and the worst you can get is a slight burning sensation at the end of the treatment session.
