Acne Scarring Treatment

Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people, both young and old. The word “acne” means “pimples” in Greek, but it can also refer to blackheads, whiteheads, and other types of pimples.

Acne scarring is a skin condition that has long been seen as one of the most difficult to treat. However, new therapies make it likely that many people will experience less blemishes and fewer scars after treatment.

Acne is the most common skin condition that affects humans. It develops where more oil glands are present, e.g., on the face, scalp, chest, back and neck. Acne is caused by oil glands in the skin producing too much oil, which then blocks hair follicles on the skin’s surface. This can cause bacteria to grow in the blocked pores and start an infection that leads to swelling and inflammation. There are many different types of acne: some have bumps that are red with pus-filled pimples; others are more like scars with dark spots or discolored areas where the skin has been damaged by inflammation.

The inflammation associated with the lesion can damage skin tissue, causing it to collapse and leave a scar. These scars can manifest in many forms, including atrophic acne scars resulting from limited collagen as the skin attempts to heal itself. These scars are known as “ice pick”, “boxcar”, and “rolling” scars. 

At Surani Clinic we use a combination of Laser Genesis and Vibraderm treatments to help improve acne scars.

Here is how Laser Genesis works

  1. Stimulates Collagen Production: Laser Genesis works by gently heating the dermis (the second layer of skin) to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps maintain the skin’s structure and elasticity. By promoting collagen synthesis, the treatment aims to improve the appearance of acne scars.
  2. Reduces Redness and Inflammation: The laser energy can also target blood vessels in the skin, helping to reduce redness and inflammation associated with acne scars. This can contribute to a more even skin tone.
  3. Promotes Healing: The controlled thermal injury induced by the laser promotes the natural healing process of the skin. As the skin heals, it may lead to the reduction of scar tissue and an improvement in the overall texture of the skin.
  4. Minimizes Surface Irregularities: Laser Genesis can help to smooth out the surface of the skin by targeting uneven textures caused by acne scars. It’s particularly effective for atrophic scars, which are depressions in the skin often left behind by acne.

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of Laser Genesis can vary from person to person, and multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. Additionally, while it can improve the appearance of acne scars, it may not completely eliminate them. Consulting with a dermatologist or skincare professional is essential to determine the most suitable treatment plan based on individual skin type and the severity of acne scarring.
