Acne Scar Removal
What is Acne Scar Removal?
Acne scar removal improves the appearance of depressed acne scars. Acne scars usually form due to excess collagen production during the healing process, leaving an indentation on the skin.
Acne scar removal helps reduce the appearance of acne scars by reducing excess collagen and promoting the growth of a new layer of more even-toned and smoother skin.
There are various acne scar removal options such as lasers, peels, fillers, and dermal injections. Each one can help restore your skin to its pre-acne state, helping it look younger and smoother than ever. What’s the best method? That varies from person to person and would depend on their concerns and preferences, as well as on the end results they want.

Some of the benefits of acne scar removal include:

- Reduce pore size in the treated area
Best of all, the treatment is minimally invasive at the most, and there’s not a lot of downtime required.
What results can you expect?
There are various benefits that come with each treatment option. For example, lasers work by removing the damaged outer layer of skin to reveal healthy tissue underneath, while peels remove dead cells from the topmost surface to make way for the growth of fresh new ones.
Fillers help reduce pitted scars by adding more volume to affected areas, whereas dermal injections provide a thicker, moisturized protective layer that helps encourage collagen production within deeper levels, though these are generally prescribed for more severe cases. Not long after the treatment, you should notice a marked improvement in the appearance and texture in the treated area.

You may notice dryness or redness in the treated area after it has been exposed to the lasers.
