How Do Laser Treatments For Acne Scars Work?

Powerful pulses of light energy to improve scars

Laser treatments are administered by trained professionals where the laser is passed over the skin sending out high light energy to target scarred tissue and stimulate new collagen growth. The wavelengths of light on the laser can be adjusted depending on the type of acne scar.


Frequently Asked Questions

Let us first identify the cause of acne. Acne usually happens when your pores are clogged. Oil, dead skin, and bacteria build up in your pores leads to clogging and causing inflammation. Some people also have acne because of their genetics. Because of this, some people are more prone to acne build-up while some always have smooth, clear skin without putting any effort.

When the acne dries or when you try to squeeze or scratch the acne, it will become a wound. Then, your body will naturally heal the wound causing the scar. Hence, they are called acne scars.

How your body responds and repairs wounds will depend on how your body functions. Your body is also the one that dictates how much scarring you will get. The whole healing process includes the creation of collagen. If your body produces too much collagen, the scars are slightly raised. Another type of scarring also causes pits or indention in the skin. This is when there is a loss of tissue creating craters in your face.

There are many ways to treat acne scars. This will just depend on your preferences. Here are a few treatments you should definitely look into:

  • Soft tissue fillers: Collagen, fat, or other substances are injected under the skin which plumps up the skin. This is for people with indented scars. However, the results are temporary. So, you might need to repeat this treatment.
  • Steroid injection: It is another way to raise scars. Just like in soft tissue fillers, steroids are injected to make your skin more even.
  • Dermabrasion: This is usually used for people with severe scarring. With a rapidly rotating brush, the doctor will remove the top layer of the skin. The surface scars can be completely removed when you choose dermabrasion. However, a deeper acne scar is another story. They are not completely removed but they will appear less visible.
  • Laser resurfacing: This treatment is becoming more and more popular these days. People who underwent dermabrasion usually go for laser resurfacing to treat leftover or resurfacing scars.
  • Chemical peel: The doctor will apply a chemical solution on the scar tissue in your face to remove the top layer of the skin. This will make the scar less visible.
  • Skin needling: The doctor will be using a needle-studded device for this procedure. The device will prick the skin to stimulate collagen formation under the scar tissue. It is 100% safe, simple treatment, and is highly effective.

You can also use some medicated creams to improve the appearance of your acne scars. Choose creams with azelaic acid or hydroxyl acids. These ingredients will help make your acne scars blend in.

Laser treatment for removing acne scars main goal is to minimize the appearance of acne scars in your face. What happens during laser treatment is that the heat coming from the laser the doctor use will remove the top layer of the skin where the acne scar is formed. After that, the skin will look smoother and the acne scar less noticeable. The effects of the laser used don't just end there. Heat and light coming from the laser will promote new and healthier skin growth.

Then because of the laser, blood will be drawn to the area where the heat and light are directed to. Because of this, inflammation will be greatly reduced. The puffiness of the skin where your scar is located will decrease and be less visible.

The result of the laser treatment will make the acne scars less raised and red making the scars look smaller and less visible. In addition, it helps your skin to heal and promotes better and healthier skin.

Yes, laser treatment to remove acne scars is very effective. It is one of the most effective treatments to remove or lighten acne scars because the top layer of the scarred skin is removed. Hence, its appearance will be greatly minimized.

The scarred tissue will be removed then the laser's light and heat will encourage your skin to grow new and healthier skin to replace the removed one. Resulting in smoother and better-looking skin.

However, one treatment will not entirely remove the acne scar. Complete remodeling will take around 18 months. During this time, your acne scars will be less visible and your skin will appear smoother. You just have to remember, it is totally normal to see temporary changes in your skin tone. That happens because of the skin removal and promotes skin growth.

Laser treatment is 80% effective on shallow acne scars. But deep scars are a different story. It needs to be treated before or during a laser resurfacing treatment.

Just like any treatment or procedure, there are risks and side effects of undergoing laser treatment to remove your acne scars. However, the risks and side effects will depend on what kind of laser the doctor used, your skin type, and how many laser treatments you will need.

The usual side effects of laser treatment are redness, swelling, or tenderness. But don't worry. These side effects are minor and temporary. The redness will subside after the procedure.

When you undergo laser treatment to remove acne scars, there are risks like hyperpigmentation and infection. That being said, they are very rare and highly preventable. If you are worried and feeling unsure, it is best to talk to a doctor about it before you decide to go for laser treatment. This way you can be comfortable.

After your procedure, if you notice any extensive swelling, pus, or fever, speak to a specialist as soon as possible.

One of the benefits of laser treatment aside from lightening acne scars is it promotes collagen production under scarred skin which encourages the skin to become healthier, smoother, and even. In addition, because of the collagen production, your skin will be tighter and firmer.

Laser treatment is less harsh compared to other traditional methods that leave the skin irritated, red, and even cause the skin to flake. This treatment is much gentler and heals faster with better results. The healing process is quick compared to other treatments which require more than a week to recover.

In addition, laser treatment is safe for light, medium, and dark skin types. You may see some skin color changes but rest assured, they are not permanent. Laser treatment is ideal for all ages, skin types, and even different scar types making them the popular and go-to treatment for people who want to get rid of their acne scars.

With laser treatments for removing acne scars, a certified doctor will be using a laser and remove the top layer of your skin. But don't worry, this will not damage your skin. What happens is your skin will naturally heal itself and become healthier and better. The laser will just remove the top part with the acne scar leaving smoother and softer skin.

The device used by the doctor provides heat and light which promotes skin growth and collagen production. Collagen improves your overall skin health. Collagen strengthens the skin and makes it more elastic and look hydrated. After your laser treatment, you will instantly feel the difference in your skin. Your skin will look and feel tighter.

In addition, when your skin is all healed, it will become smoother and have an even skin tone and appearance. When you undergo laser treatment, you will not only reduce the look of your acne scars but also have glowing and tighter skin.

The number of laser treatments you will undergo will depend on the type of acne scar you have and the type of treatment you are going for. To know the full extent of the laser treatment you will need, it is best to talk to a doctor about it.

Some laser treatments will need you to have more than 5 treatments every 2 to 4 weeks. Depending on the severity of your acne scar, some might only need less than 5 treatments to make your skin look more even without all the acne scar. It might seem a lot and will need too much effort but the results make it appealing to many people.

Laser treatments are popular because they are non-invasive and you won't need to get surgery to remove all your acne scars. Meaning the recuperation and downtime is less and you can go back to your normal life faster. Laser treatments promote collagen production which makes your skin look smoother. To top that off, it will also make your skin tighter. The result is younger and fresher-looking skin.

To know which acne scar treatment works best for you, you need to talk to the doctor. They will be able to diagnose and properly advise you of which treatment will work for the type of acne scar you have based on how deep they are, your skin type, and how much acne scar needs to be removed.

There are different treatments you can get. It will depend on what your goal is. If you want to eliminate raised or bumpy acne scars, you can use scar creams, gels, or even silicone dressings which means you don't need to go to a clinic. However, you won't be sure of the effectiveness of the products you use. On the other hand, if you have a raised acne scar but with lighter skin color, you can go for cryosurgery. But this treatment is not recommended for all skin tones. For more widespread acne scars, collagen injection treatment is ideal for you. But this treatment can't be used for raised scars. For a gentle and non-invasive option, laser treatments are an effective solution to acne scars.

Acne scar treatments vary depending on each person. It is best to talk to a doctor and have your acne scar checked before going through with a treatment plan.

The cost for an acne scar laser treatment varies. It will depend on the type of laser treatment you will get, the method your doctor will be using, the severity of the acne scar in your face, and how many laser treatments you will need.

Go to your doctor and have your acne scar checked. Ask what laser treatment method they will be doing or if there are any risks or side effects for this procedure. Don't forget to ask how many treatments you will need and how often, so you can prepare your schedule and finances. This way, you can have a rough idea of how much the total cost you need to spend to remove all your acne scars.
