Clear Up Acne Scars with Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Acne scars hurt your self-esteem because you can feel self-conscious about the blemishes. The breakouts can impact the deep layers of skin and cause tissue damage. The most common type of acne scarring to occur on the face are atrophic scars, which are depressed scarring. They occur when the body fails to make a sufficient amount of collagen to successfully heal the wound. Luckily, this form of acne scarring responds well to laser skin resurfacing treatments. Laser skin resurfacing treatments can smooth away the marks to create a softer appearance by encouraging the body’s natural healing process and collagen production to fill in the areas of acne scarring.
A member of our med spa facility will meet with you to evaluate the level of your acne scarring and determine what you can expect from laser skin resurfacing treatments. At Beleza Surgery, we serve Cedar Park, Round Rock, The Arboretum, Liberty Hill and Killeen, TX.
All about laser skin resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing uses laser technology to repair and renew skin suffering from acne scarring. The procedure relies on the use of fractional-based skin resurfacing to create microscopic injuries on the skin’s surface. This stimulates the body’s natural ability to repair itself, which spurs collagen creation and helps smooth away acne scarring.
Our team at Beleza Surgery uses the Opus Plasma Fractional Laser for fractional skin resurfacing. Beleza Surgery was the first to use this innovative technology in the Austin area. With the Opus Plasma Fractional Laser, you’ll have less downtime than other skin resurfacing methods.
If you opt to undergo laser resurfacing to remove acne scarring, the entire procedure is carried out by our team at Beleza Surgery, which serves The Arboretum, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Liberty Hill, and Killeen, TX. The procedure takes only 15-minutes. Our team will apply a topical anesthetic to ensure ongoing comfort during the laser resurfacing. If you are planning to attend an event, you should schedule the procedures at least a week prior to the event to give your skin sufficient time to heal.
Typically, it will take 2 – 3 laser resurfacing treatments to minimize acne scarring, but you might experience improvement in the treated area after only a single treatment.
What to expect following laser resurfacing treatments
Many patients experience a day or two of redness or swelling that ranges from mild to moderate. However, patients have no significant downtime. With Opus Plasma, patients usually experience a reduction in skin irritation.
Following treatment, avoid picking the treated area when the skin starts to peel or flake. Picking the treated area can lead to more severe scarring. Our team will often recommend a cream to help your skin effectively heal.
