At Solutions Laser Studio, the PicoSure laser is used in acne scar removal procedures.
PicoSure is particularly well suited for acne scar removal because it offers a more gentle solution than older, high heat lasers.
Instead, PicoSure uses a gentle blue light heat to target the damaging bacteria causing the scars. The laser works on both the surface layer of skin and on the subdermal layers where the deeper scarring occurs.
The laser also stimulates the production of healthy new skin cells while it repairs the damaged skin. The result is smooth new skin that no longer shows pock marks and scarring.
Acne scar removal treatments usually take only around 20 minutes or less, showing results almost immediately.
Most people experience only mild discomfort during the treatment. However, a cooling topical cream can be used to help minimize any discomfort during the treatment.
Generally, any discomfort will be very minor and short-lived.
The amount of treatment will vary based on the severity and the size of the scarring.
Most patients need between four and six treatment sessions, although most people notice a significant improvement after only three sessions.
Each treatment session is usually spaced between two and four weeks after the prior one for optimal results.
Skin may be slightly reddened and may feel warm to the touch. This is normal, and will usually fade over the next few days.
Most patients find it no more inconvenient than a minor sunburn. The majority of people who get this type of treatment will be able to return to their work and daily routine right away if they wish.*Individual Results May Vary
