Treatment for acne scar

Acne scars, unfortunately, can stay as a reminder for one’s life. A reminder for a bad part of one’s youth; something like a badge that one is forced to wear throughout one’s life. Fortunately, today, thanks to the advancement of science, there are many safe and effective means available that can possibly reduce the visual impacts of such scarring.

Carbon-di-oxide Fractional Laser

The Carbon dioxide fractional laser is one of the most reliable options available with us for taking care of acne scars. This method is safe and effective and is carried out under topical anesthesia, which means that an anesthetic cream is applied on the skin first, which makes it numb prior to the procedure. Then the laser begins its work – it actually delivers beams of energy into the skin, making it regenerate, thereby leading to the formation of new skin!

Quick and Easy !

The treatment time takes only about 20 minutes. There is a mild redness experienced, post-treatment, for about 2-3 days and then it is all back to normal again. Hence, most people prefer to have their treatment over a weekend, as one can get the procedure done on a Friday and then stay out of the sun for the next 2 days and then be back to work again, the following Monday! It usually takes 4-6 such sessions done over a period of 4-6 months to have the scars taken care of and therefore, one should plan about 6 months early.

The Carbon-di-oxide Fractional Laser is just one of the many treatments we offer for acne scar care. We actually have more in store. Please do feel free to get in touch with us to know more.
