As if acne isn’t frustrating enough, it often leaves behind evidence of its existence in the form of a scar. It’s important to know, though, that you don’t have to live with embarrassing scars forever. Our doctors here at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego utilize state-of-the-art laser technology to treat acne scars for our patients.
What Causes Scarring?
Acne scars are caused by inflammation that occurs naturally when a breakout is present. The more inflamed the area is, the more likely it is to scar. Taking care of your skin by wearing sunscreen, not picking at blemishes, and applying medicated creams can help reduce the risk of forming a scar.
How Can I Get Rid of Acne Scars?
If you are suffering with the presence of acne scars, there are highly effective laser treatment options available. Our board-certified dermatologists at CLDerm in San Diego are in the forefront of cutting-edge laser treatments used to treat and reduce the appearance of acne scars, including the following:
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing in San Diego, when performed by an expert dermatologist, is a highly effective treatment option for reducing the appearance of acne scars. By selectively targeting the superficial layers of the skin that contain the scars, laser skin resurfacing can greatly diminish the scars’ appearance, thus restoring a youthful glow to your skin.
Fraxel Re:pair ™
Fraxel Re:pair in San Diego is a revolutionary technique in reducing acne scars in as little as one treatment. With less downtime and greater results than many other treatments, the Fraxel laser procedure may be just what you’ve been looking for to get rid of those acne scars. With our doctors at CLDerm being leaders in the use of the Fraxel laser worldwide, you can rest assured that you are in expert hands.
For patients suffering from acne scars and continued acne breakouts, your doctor may recommend Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). PDT relies on the use of photochemical reactions to photosensitizing agents. After preparing your skin for the treatment, four precise wavelengths of lasers (PDL, IPL, Blue Light and Red Light) are applied directly toward the acne lesions and scars, activating the photosensitizer, and reducing the appearance of the acne.
Because each patient is unique, your doctor will discuss your specific treatment options with you during your consultation.
