Why you should get Acne Scars Treatment

Treatment options available:
There is a wide range of options available for Acne Scar Treatment in Abu Dhabi. Laser Skincare Clinic offers a variety of skin resurfacing treatments to help its esteemed clients restore a clear, smooth skin after suffering the pain and agony caused by acne breakouts, which often last for several years. Here are the options that you have to eliminate acne scarring:
Chemical peels serve as the first aid treatment for acne scarring. A diluted acidic solution of a specific strength is applied to the facial skin. This helps remove the outer most, damaged layer of the skin and also boosts collagen levels. However, chemical peels are useful for mild acne scarring only.
It is a simple skin resurfacing procedure that uses a sandblaster-like machine to buff away the top layer of the scarred skin. It also polishes the affected areas and stimulates the growth of new skin free of scars and acne blemishes. The procedure also boosts the collagen levels to counter the scarring caused by acne.
•Radiofrequency Treatment (RFT):
Radio frequency treatment involves use of pulsed waves that help create new skin without damaging the top most scarred layer of skin. The RFT waves heat up collagen in the inner layers of your skin, resulting in shrinkage and tightening of skin. It also stimulates production of collagen in your skin as well as new and youthful skin.
•Laser Skin Resurfacing/ Fractional CO2 Treatment:
Laser skin resurfacing is probably the most commonly used procedure for acne scar treatment. In this procedure a high intensity laser beam is used to cause microscopic wounds in the outer most scarred skin layer. This induces self healing in the treated areas. This boosts both collagen and elastin levels and allows newer, healthy layer of skin to replace the scarred one.
Among all these treatments, Fractional CO2 Treatment is considered as the best procedure for acne scarring and rough skin texture.
How to prepare for the procedure?
•Avoid sunlight during the last 10-15 days before treatment
•Your doctor may prescribe you some skin lightening cream/ ointment. Use it as directed.
•Stop using any topical products that have not been prescribed by the doctor
•If you have been using Isotretinoin/ Accutane to control acne, then wait for 6 months before undergoing laser treatment
•Have a good night’s sleep on the day before treatment
•Do not apply any cream or lotion to the face on the day of treatment
How the procedure is performed?
•Topical anesthetic is applied to the entire face 30 to 45 minutes before the procedure
•Numbing gel is removed from the face before the treatment
•Using a hand-held laser device (DEKA Smartxide Fractional CO2 Laser), the surgeon will make laser beams incident on the targeted areas
•The high-intensity carbon dioxide laser beams create microscopic holes of a specific length in the affected areas
•The doctor keeps on flashing the laser beams until the entire face has been treated
Post-op care and the recovery time:
•Recovery in case of laser treatment takes a few days with generally no downtime. Nevertheless, rest is highly recommended.
•Your face will be red and a little itchy immediately after the treatment. Ice packs may help relieve the discomfort
•Do not expose the treated areas to direct sunlight for 4 to 6 weeks at least

Many people suffer from the after effects of acne scars and seek out laser acne scar treatment in order to reverse that damage that has been done. Thankfully with the advancements in dermatological therapy and the use of laser resurfacing, medicine has made it completely optional when it comes to living with scarring due to acne.
Laser Acne Scar Removal
There are two forms of lasers that are of use in acne scar removal treatment. These consist of non-ablative laser and resurfacing or ablative lasers. The way in which ablative lasers work is by removing the outer layers of the skin by burning away the scar tissue promoting the tightening of collagen. The combination of these significantly reduces the visibility of scars.
Since the skin is purposely damaged, a great deal of care must go into preventing infection after this procedure is undergone. The skin may also remain red for as long as a year following a procedure this aggressive as well. Non-ablative laser acne scar treatment serves to promote changes in the skin without having to damage it.
Skin Resurfacing Laser
The newest form of this laser that has been approved by the FDA is called Smoothbeam. The Smoothbeam laser focuses on the sebaceous gland which is responsible for the production of sebum which directly contributes to acne. When the collagen in the skin is heated, it helps to tighten the skin and therefore reduce the visibility of scarring as well.
Reducing Facial Skin Redness
There is also what is referred to as the yellow pulse dye laser. This laser can also significantly reduce the appearance of keloidal scars by reducing redness, itching and flattening their raised appearance. Before this laser is put into action, a topical anesthetic is applied to the affected area and the skin surface is cooled to prevent damage 60 minutes before undergoing the procedure. The patient will be aware of both hot and cool sensations as they are undergoing the treatment, but with the anesthetic, this will be more tolerable.
Only taking an hour at a time, this procedure is typically performed in three sessions about 30 days apart. If you are suffering from the lingering and persistent signs of acne, laser treatment for acne scars is a safe and effective option available to you when deciding on how to return your skin to its healthy, clear appearance.
Speak with your dermatologist regarding these laser acne scar treatments and determine which one is right for you and your skin’s needs.
