Do you have acne scars that you would like gone for good? If you’re like most people with acne, you don’t like having those pesky marks on your skin, and may have tried different treatments to get rid of acne scars, but nothing seems to work. Acne scars can be stubborn, but it is possible to reduce them.
Understanding acne scars
Acne scars develop during the body’s natural repair process in response to the inflammation and lesions that occur during an acne outbreak. As the body heals extra collagen is produced to repair the acne wounds, but the collagen forms irregularly, resulting in raised or indented areas of skin that develop into acne scars.
How Can I Get Rid of Acne Scars?
Fractional laser resurfacing is one of the most effective treatments for mild to moderate acne scars. Fractional laser therapy only treats a portion of the skin, as the laser beam creates microscopic columns in the skin. The treated areas are surrounded by untreated tissue that helps to accelerate healing.
Reducing acne scars with the Halo
The Halo hybrid fractional laser by Sciton is an advanced laser system that features ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in a single device. The ablative wavelength targets the damaged tissue in the top layer of the skin to improve skin texture. The non-ablative wavelength goes deeper to target the dermal layer, and stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen helps to fill in indented scars and tightens the skin.
It typically takes multiple treatments to reduce acne scars with the Halo laser.
