Fade Away Unwanted Acne Scars With Laser Scar Treatment
Acne scarring can impact your self-esteem. Laser scar treatment can effectively fade away unwanted acne scars to reveal smooth, virtually blemish-free skin. Nonsurgical therapy works well on facial or body scarring by reducing the rough texture, skin damage, and discoloration of the area.
Dr. Jeanine Thomas is an internal medicine specialist at Devine Aesthetic Solutions in Arlington, TX. The laser scar treatments ease the appearance of large scars on the face and body.
The outpatient laser treatment is carried out at Devine Aesthetics Solutions in Arlington, TX. Dr. Thomas uses a handheld Harmony XL PRO applicator to target the areas of damaged skin and remove the scarred skin layer. The process effectively encourages the development of new, healthier, almost scar-free cellular growth.
Are the results of laser scar treatment immediate?
It will take from 4 – 6 treatments that are usually spaced at least a week apart to gain the best results possible and ease the appearance of acne scars. Over several months, the treated area will go through many changes as new tissue grows. The results of laser scar treatment are not immediate. It will take time to notice the development of smoother, virtually scar-free skin.
When can you undergo laser scar treatments?
Patients near Fort Worth, Euless, or Midlothian, TX cannot undergo laser scar treatments to smooth away acne scarring until the blemishes have healed and there is no inflammation. If you are treating an area that has been stitched, then you’ll need to wait for the stitches to be removed and until the wound is fully healed before you can undergo laser scar treatment.
What to expect from laser scar treatment
Expectations for laser scar treatment of acne scarring should always be realistic. The laser scar treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of the scarring, but the scarring is never removed completely. The Harmony XL PRO laser treatment provides impressive results by softening the appearance of unwanted scars.
How do laser scar treatments work?
With laser scar treatment, heat from the Harmony XL PRO laser starts to remove the top layer of skin, which is where the acne scars are located. The heat breaks down the scar tissue, and the laser light encourages cellular growth. When the top layer of skin starts to peel off, new cellular growth develops that appears smoother and more scar-free. Once fully healed, the appearance of the scar is usually significantly reduced.
The entire acne laser treatment is virtually pain-free. Redness might occur in the treated area but will usually subside within a week to ten days. Most people quickly resume their normal routine following the laser treatment with no downtime.
Ultimately, after completing the series of laser treatments, the appearance of the acne scarring will improve. Even areas of darkening and hyperpigmentation typically start to diminish.
