Are you looking for a way to smooth out embarrassing acne scars? Acne scars are a problem for many people, but there are ways to minimize their appearance. So if you’ve been wondering – how can I eliminate the appearance of acne scars, we offer some options below that can help to reduce them.
How Can I Eliminate the Appearance of Acne Scars?
There are different types of acne scars, including lumpy, raised, or depressed scars, so the treatment will depend on the type of scar being treated. Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective treatment options for acne scars, and this can be efficiently done with the fractional CO2 laser.
The Excelo2 is an advanced fractional CO2 laser that resurfaces the skin, and treats a range of skin irregularities including acne scars, sun damage, and stretch marks. The Excelo2 creates ultra-tiny injuries to the skin, leaving the surrounding skin intact to help with healing. The scar becomes smoother as the skin heals. A single session with Excelo2 takes approximately 30 minutes, and downtime ranges from 3-5 days.
In addition to laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion and chemical peels can also reduce the appearance of scars. These treatments exfoliate dead skin cells and resurface the skin, giving it a smoother, more even appearance.
Patients with a variety of scars may need a combination approach to get the best results.
