Acne scars can be a frustrating and persistent reminder of past breakouts. However, there are effective solutions available to significantly improve or eliminate these unsightly scars. Our clinic offers a range of treatment options to help you achieve smoother, more even skin. These treatments range from noninvasive methods to fractional CO2 laser treatments.
The fractional CO2 laser is a powerful and effective tool for treating acne scars. This treatment works by creating tiny wounds on the treated skin, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process to produce new dermal collagen, which smooths out acne scars. Patients can typically see visible results as early as one week after treatment, with improvement ranging from 30 to 70% after just one session. However, multiple treatments may be required for more severe cases, which are usually spaced out over several months.
Downtime after the fractional CO2 laser treatment typically lasts from 4 to 7 days, during which the skin is healing and regenerating. While the treatment may cause some discomfort, a topical anesthetic is typically applied to minimize any pain or discomfort. Moreover, the fractional CO2 laser is a safe and effective option for people with darker skin tones looking to remove acne scars.
In addition to treating acne scars, the fractional CO2 laser can also address other skin concerns such as coarse pores, wrinkles, including crow’s feet, and burn and laceration scars. Globalesque Aesthetics can provide personalized recommendations based on your unique skin needs and help you achieve the best possible results.
