If you suffer from acne scarring, you may feel that your skin’s uneven texture is the most conspicuous aspect of your appearance. Acne causes scarring by damaging the collagen and other tissues in your skin, creating a tighter pull on your skin in the scarred area and resulting in a “pockmarked” effect.Repairing the damaged collagen and treating the surrounding skin produces a more uniform texture and reduces the appearance of acne scars.
Fraxel laser treatment for acne scars does just that, tightening surrounding skin and enabling damaged skin to rebound. In addition to creating a smoother texture across the treated area, Fraxel laser treatment promotes collagen production over a series of several treatment sessions. While skin tone and evenness is improved after just one treatment, many patients find that continued treatments improve the skin exponentially, virtually erasing the effects of acne.
Acne can leave your skin scarred and uneven and make you self-conscious. But Fraxel laser treatment can reverse acne scarring and provide you with healthy, youthful-looking skin.
