When you look in the mirror, do you hate seeing your acne scars look back? Unfortunately, scars often affect self-esteem. If you wish there was something that you could do, you can.
It turns out you can get rid of those scars without undergoing painful surgery. There are several treatments available specifically for reducing scars. These treatments are simple and practically pain free. Best of all, they deliver the type of results that you would expect from an extensive procedure. Look at your options and then schedule an appointment to get a step closer to getting rid of your embarrassing scars.
With acne scars, the real issue is not on the surface of your skin but below where pockets form and cause scarring. The Fraxel fractional laser treatment goes below the skin’s surface to stimulate the body’s collage production. The collagen fills in the pockets that cause scars to form on your face. Because this treatment targets each problem area, your skin fills out and scars go away.
Depending on the severity of your scarring, you might need to go through a series of Fraxel treatments. In addition, your results might not show until after your second treatment. However, your scarring will start to fade more and more from one treatment to the next, until they are gone. At that point, you will feel like a new person and be ready to take on the world.
Micro-needling also stimulates the growth of collagen. The doctor uses tiny needles to penetrate the dermis or top layer of the skin, causing the skin to produce more collagen and elastin. For acne scars, the doctor goes deep into the skin to create the production needed to fill the grooves and pits that cause scarring.
This procedure has very little downtime, and you only need to get it every year or two when dealing with facial acne. That will allow you to reduce your scars without worrying about them coming back.
PicoSure Focus is an easy way to get rid of acne scars for all skin types and it only takes about 15 minutes. This laser stimulates collagen production while leaving all of the overlaying skin cells intact. It is so effective that many people refer to it as a 15-minute face lift.
Although it requires minimal downtime, you may require a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. The best thing to do is come in for a consultation to find out how many treatments you will need for your specific level of scarring. Then, you can schedule the procedure and get started on the road to reducing unwanted scars.
Acne scars can be embarrassing, but you do not have to deal with that embarrassment any longer. Schedule a treatment so you can finally get rid of your scars. Once your scars are gone, you will have your confidence back, and therefore, a new lease on life.
