What are Acne Scars?
These scars result from the body’s attempt to repair the damage caused by inflamed acne lesions, which can be in the form of pits, depressions, or raised areas on the skin’s surface.
This can have a significant impact on an individual’s self-esteem and confidence, making effective treatment crucial for improving the appearance and texture of the affected skin and regaining lost confidence.
What Causes Acne Scars?
Scarring from Acne develop when the skin’s natural healing process is disrupted by inflammatory acne lesions, such as: cysts, nodules and papules.
When these lesions penetrate deep into the skin, they damage the collagen and elastin fibres responsible for maintaining the skin’s structure and elasticity. As a result, the body may produce too much or too little collagen during the healing process, leading to the formation of different types of scars, including: icepick, pock marks, boxcar scars and rolling texture. Factors like genetics, the severity of acne, delayed or improper treatment, and picking or squeezing acne lesions can exacerbate the scarring process, so the latter is usually ill-advised.
What Is the Treatment for Acne Scars?
Lumenis M22 Laser with ResurfX is an advanced and effective treatment for reducing the appearance of acne scarring.
Our lasers utilise fractional laser technology, which creates micro-injuries in the skin’s deeper layers while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, promoting natural skin rejuvenation aiding in reducing their appearance and smoothing out the surface of the skin.
