Most of us deal with acne at one time or another, especially during adolescence. It isn’t a pleasant experience, but fortunately it isn’t likely to last forever – right? Not exactly! Contrary to the accepted wisdom about acne, there is a consequence of acne that can last forever and that is acne scaring.
These scars stay behind as visual proof of damage to the skin’s tissues and of the body’s efforts to repair the skin. Popping or picking at pimples can also cause scars, especially since skin popping often allows more bacteria to enter the skin, thereby giving the body more to fight against and further inflaming the tissue.
However, we understand that no one can help it. The pimples just have to be popped. The sad part of it is that rather than going to a professional, such as an aesthetician, we attempt to pop the pimples ourselves, thereby causing more damage than good.
Each time you pop a pimple you risk having a permanent scar. This is especially true with cystic acne.
Acne scars can be extremely annoying, visible and can contribute to low self-esteem. However, with the various cosmetic dermatology technologies available today, there is now reason why you should suffer from acne scars.
Acne scarring often occurs before we know how important it is to take care of our skin, but we don’t have to be stuck with it forever. The San Diego acne scar removal experts at Avalon Laser know just how to handle such a situation and free patients from the long-held burden of acne scarring.
Acne scar removal involves the most advanced methods available, for results you can trust. Laser energy targets deeper layers of the skin than topical creams could ever get to, stimulating the growth of collagen. Collagen is a substance that your body naturally creates to heal the skin, and laser energy brings it out where it’s most needed. Best of all, optimum results can be achieved in only three to five treatments.
After helping you overcome acne scars, we can concentrate on helping you prevent further acne problems with effective acne therapy treatments, including the new Photodynamic Therapy Acne Treatment.
