One of the most effective ways of reducing the visibility of acne scars is a laser acne scar removal treatment near Denver at Boulder Plastic Surgery. This procedure uses a combination of infrared and pulsed light to reduce redness and the risk of breakouts, while leaving the skin looking smoother. There are a variety of laser acne scar removal treatments, such as reducing wavy skin texture, making the scars less noticeable, or both.
How Does This Procedure Work?
Using a pulsed dye laser, this procedure actively targets acne scars to stimulate tissue repair. The laser gently heats the surface of your skin to destroy bacteria that causes acne-related redness, which will reduce acne scar discoloration. This also helps to decrease the itchiness and pain associated with acne, since the infrared laser targets inflamed areas on and below the skin’s surface.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
To produce the desired results of laser acne scar revision, you will need to receive three to four treatments with intervals ranging from two to four weeks, depending on the intensity of each procedure. Thankfully, every session is quick and relatively painless. You will feel minimal discomfort, similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin, accompanied by a warm sensation on treated areas. General results of a laser acne scar revision treatment are reduced acne scar visibility, redness elimination, decreased oil secretions to reduce the risk of returning acne, and smoother skin.
There are supplementary maintenance treatments required that are quick, noninvasive, and relatively painless. Results will vary depending on a variety of factors, which your doctor can discuss with you in person.
