Acne Scar Care
Different kinds of laser are used to improve the appearance of acne scars.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Skin resurfacing laser shaves the skin in micro levels as deep as the
dermis. The downtime takes longer because of its aggresive abrasion. It
takes 1 week to dry up the lasered area, and redness lasts for 4 to 7 weeks
depending on the depth of the treatment.
This laser digs micro dots on skin as deep as resurfacing or
more.Even if it is deeper the redness lasts only for 3days for the shortest
or 1 week for longer healing. The microholes stimulate skin regeneration,
resulting in more collagen production that is capable of improving acne
Micro Laser Peel
This laser is just for peeling the epidermis but still deeper
than chemical peeling. More redness is seen compared to chemical
procedure but the level is more even because of its computerized laser
shots. Usually combined with fractional.

above and is combined with other skin care medicine and laser. The treatment

of acne scars.
