Acne is one of the most common skin conditions affecting almost 90 percent of the people at least once at some stage in their lives. The best thing about acne is that it mostly goes away once the hormones become stable. But even after it disappears, acne leaves behind unsightly scars, especially when the acne outbreak is on the face. Besides the face, acne also develops on shoulders and upper back, but it rarely causes acne scars there.
For acne victims, getting rid of acne scars is a far big challenge as compared to acne itself. If you are also one of the acne victims who is forced to live with acne scars because you are unable to find a good dermatologist, let Laser Skin Care help you get rid of these unsightly marks and regain a smooth and clear skin that you had before acne caught you.
Numerous treatment options that Laser Skin Care offers for Acne scars treatment in Islamabad include:
- Dermal fillers
- Radio Frequency Treatment (RFT), and
- Fractional laser resurfacing
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing technique that gently removes the damaged top layer of the skin, revealing fresh smooth skin underneath, free of acne scars. It is best for mild to moderate acne scars, but it may not work well for deep scars. Even superficial scars will need a series of treatments, each 4 to 6 weeks apart, for optimal results.
If you d not want to face the discomfort caused by microdermabrasion, Dermal Fillers may be an option worth considering. These injectables can easily smoothen mild to moderate superficial scars. The two most commonly used dermal fillers are collagen and natural body fat. Dermal fillers are injected into the scar depressions between the skin and the tissues to fill them out and make acne scars less visible.
These injections offer an instant and painless solution for acne scars. The only downside of dermal fillers is that their results are not lasting. You will have to get fillers re-injected after every 8 to 12 months. Commonly used dermal fillers include Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Teosyal, Ellanse, Radiesse and Esthelis.
Radio Frequency Treatment (RFT):
Radio Frequency treatments are the latest skin rejuvenating technique that uses pulsed waves to stimulate natural collagen production. It also helps create new skin without damaging the epidermis. The pulsating waves heat up collagen in the skin leading to shrinkage and tightening of the skin.
Fractional CO2 Laser skin resurfacing:
This is probably the most effective acne scar treatment. It uses carbon dioxide lasers in a fractionated manner to cause tiny wounds in the acne scars while leaving the surrounding skin intact. The healing process accelerates collagen production and speeds up the recovery process of the scars.
