Acne scars treatment begins with a consultation. Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, the infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers. Dr. Shahira Boulos is an expert in treating acne. She will recommend the best treatment option for you. Acne scars can be treated with Elos Plus Sublative laser technology, CO2RE, PCA Chemical Peels and skin care products depending on the condition.
ACNE TREATMENTS WITH SPECTRA LASERS
Let’s start off with a little bit of acne. Acne (acne vulgaris) is one of the most common skin conditions seen amongst young people, as well as adults. When the body produces too much sebum, the pores can get clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This can manifest into things like blackheads, whiteheads, or painful and red cystic bumps. While in some cases hormonal imbalances are the main culprit, in others stress, diet, bacteria and facial products can cause acne to flare up.
So, how can an acne laser peel help you? The acne treatment, otherwise known as an acne laser peel, is a procedure with no downtime that helps to rejuvenate the skin. It blurs the appearance of whiteheads and pimples by cleaning out, refreshing the pores, evening out the skin tone and reducing the appearance of acne scarring.
While this treatment can be performed on a one-time basis, it is extremely beneficial for the client to have several treatments over a period of time in order to attain the best possible results. A 30% reduction can be seen after the first session in clients seeking relief from acne and oil secretion. In addition, the dramatically visible results can be noticed following 3-5 treatments every 2 weeks. This is for clients seeking relief from acne spots including cystic acne, inflammation and redness. In order for the results to last, regular maintenance treatments are recommended every 3-6 months to properly relieve the skin of any additional inflammation or skin lesions.
HOW DOES THE SPECTRA ACNE LASER PEEL WORK?
The Spectra Laser Peel works with a laser that uses a long pulse mode to reach deep into the skin with two passes. The first pass stimulates the regeneration of skin cells and reduces inflammation, redness, acne, and large pores. The secondary pass completely peels away the old skin cells accumulated at the very top skin layer to unplug acne-causing, clogged pores. What you’re left with is rejuvenated, renewed skin.
