Laser Acne Scar Removal

When you are suffering from acne scars, you know yourself how embarrassing this can be. And worse than that, if you are in love with a person, when your face is full of acne scars, then that person might not be attracted to use simply because of the appearance of your skin.

Many people who never suffer from acne scars don’t understand that it’s not just about looks. It’s about how other people see you, and how other people think of you. It’s also about self confidence. It’s a lot easier to have confidence in yourself when you have a clear and smooth skin.

If you know what it’s like to have acne scars, then you know that sometimes when people will talk with you, you will feel that they are kind of irritated by your acne scars, but they’re trying to pretend that they don’t notice it. They have that certain look in their eye, that means “poor you, your skin is really messed up, but I don’t want you to know that I think that way, and I’m just going to acne nice and normal as if it would be nothing”. But it’s still a bit emotionally upsetting for them to look at you. So how much more emotionally upsetting is it for you?

The great thing about laser acne scar removal is that it works really fast. You can get rid of your acne scars within a couple of days. It depends on your acne scars and the kind of treatment that you decide to take.

There are basically two kinds of laser acne scar removal treatments. There is the fractional method and then there’s the laser resurfacing technique. We are going to cover them both in this article.

Laser Resurfacing

You can expect about 80% off the acne scarring on your skin to be removed by this kind of laser treatment. The treatment itself is painful, that is why local anesthesia is being applied. Basically what happens is that the scar tissue will be vaporized by the laser, and only the finer and softer skin tissue will remain. This will give your face a much smoother look.

The treatment itself will cause some wounding, but that heals in less than two weeks usually. But sometimes one treatment is not enough, and depending upon how severe your acne scarring is, you might need several laser treatments with this method.

This is also the cheaper of the two laser acne scar removal treatment forms. If you want to get rid of your acne scarring even faster, and also have a bigger budget, then you might choose the other method.

Fractional Method

Even deeper layers of your acne scars will be removed with this method, leaving only fresh and normal skin on your face. This method works very fast, and you usually need only one treatment. However, it is also quite expensive.

One thing that is very important is that you only let this procedure be done by professional, and trained dermatologists.

I hope this article helps you to get a quick overview and a better understanding of the options that are available to you if you want to get rid of acne scars fast.
