What causes Acne Scars? How can Acne scars be treated with Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment?
Acne scarring occurs when excess collagen builds up in your skin. This happens when the body puts too much effort into healing the wounds caused by acne. If this excess collagen remains in your skin for a long period of time, it may result in acne scarring. Acne scars may occur naturally or as in most cases, patients may worsen the situation by picking their acne spots. Acne scarring can damage your skin on the back, the chest and the face. Not all cases result in true acne scars. Some cases result in just an excess of pigmentation, which may fade over a period of a few years. It may appear as a textured skin, but normally they are not permanent like acne scars.
The newly introduced fractional laser technology can treat acne and scars effectively. The treatment is painless and excellently resurfaces the skin by reducing the pore size. The treatment effectively helps skin appear smooth and also works on pimple scars. Before starting the procedure, Topical anaesthetics are applied to make the treatment more comfortable.
