There are several ways to improve the appearance of your acne scars at Lasermed, depending on their colour, texture, and size. Chemical peels help even out the skin tone, while the Mosaic fractional laser can help smooth the skin’s surface. It has the ability to deliver substantial improvements while leaving the skin’s outermost layer unaffected. The process stimulates natural collagen remodelling without significant downtime and risks. After a single Mosaic Skin Regeneration procedure, your skin will be brighter and regenerated with fresh, renewed collagen. After 3 to 4 treatments, your skin will become tighter and scars will dramatically improve or disappear altogether. It’s perfectly suited to treat the face, neck, chest and hands, as well as acne scars, surgical scars, trauma scars, burn scars and stretch marks.
Depressed scars can also be treated with ‘fillers’, but they generally wear off in four to six months and must be repeated to maintain the results.
Microdermabrasion is another good option, because it’s safe for men and women of all skin conditions and colours. Often called ‘the lunch time peel’, each session may take between 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the areas being treated. The number of treatments can vary from 4 to 12, depending on the severity of your condition and treatment goals. Treatments should be performed 7 to 10 days apart.
The CO2 fractional laser is exceptional for laser skin resurfacing. The treatment is painful. So, to minimise discomfort we apply topical anaesthetic cream to the area an hour before treatment. In most cases only one treatment is needed, but for deep acne scarring two or more treatments may be necessary. The interval between treatments should be three months.
