Acne scars can be so severe that they pose psychological problems for those who have them, leaving them desperate for a solution. However, correcting acne scars can be challenging, so it’s important to visit a doctor with the required expertise, to make certain that you select the right method. Be sure to ask your physician – what is the best acne scar treatment for me – because no treatment works for every patient.
Best Acne Scar Treatment for you
There are different types of acne scars, and there are also many options for acne scar correction.The best treatment for you will depend on the type of scars you have, as well as your skin type. Among the various treatment modalities, laser skin resurfacing is considered the most effective, particularly fractional laser resurfacing.
Fractional laser treatment for acne scars
Fractional lasers create tiny micro-injury points in the skin that penetrate down to the dermal level. The laser energy breaks down the scar tissues, and also induces the body’s natural repair mechanism, resulting in the formation of new collagen. Collagen is a protein that is present in the skin’s connective tissue, but levels decline over time. New collagen will plump the skin and fill in areas of depression, making the skin smoother and firmer.
After one or two treatments with the fractional laser most patients notice an improvement in the appearance of their acne scars.
