Acne Scar Treatment
Mild acne scars often show as ‘ice-pick’ scarring, which are small, discrete areas of deep scarring, with steep edges.
Acne scars in general are the visible remainders of tissue damage to the skin and the body’s efforts to repair the damage from prior acne inflammation. Acne scarring can also occur as a result of “popping” the pimple or picking at the skin with their fingers or other rough instruments, such as needles. With this additional injury to the skin, the body’s immune system works even harder trying to repair the damage. As a result, acne scars often occur. With skin “popping”, these can be even more prominent since additional bacteria enter the skin and induce more inflammation.
During laser acne scar treatment, laser energy is applied to target deeper layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen growth. This helps minimize the scar as well as diminish surface skin irregularities. The procedure also removes the top layer of dead skin cells which can block pores. This exposes a more healthy skin layer.
