If you suffered from acne at any time in your life, you may have acne scars. There are two main types of acne scars – depressed and raised. Depressed scars include icepick, boxcar and rolling scars and are commonly found on the face. Raised scars are called hypertrophic scars and are commonly found on the chest and back. Fractional laser resurfacing is the standard treatment for clearing up acne scars in Cincinnati.
Fractional laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses fractional laser technology to deliver a laser beam that is divided into thousands of tiny points. Each point treats a fraction of the skin. This treatment is considered the standard because it treats both the surface skin cells, as well as the mid-layer cells, prompting the skin to create new collagen and elastin, the proteins that make your skin look smooth and young.
Fractional laser treatment is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage including hyperpigmentation, sun and age spots and scars from acne, surgery or other causes. For the best results, a series of treatments is usually required. This gives the skin the time to heal and replace the damaged tissue with new elastin and collagen.
When you have a consultation with our specialist in Cincinnati, your skin problems will be examined and a treatment plan recommended. If fractional laser treatment is your best option, we can come up with a customized treatment plan for your acne scars.
The treatment is relatively quick and is performed in the comfort of our office in Cincinnati. We will give you instructions for aftercare and explain any possible details associated with the treatment. The treated area should be kept out of sunlight and you should use a moisturizing sunscreen whenever you go outside.
