Acne Scarring – Laser and Filler treatments by Dr. Maria Gonzalez
Acne Scarring Treatment
If you have felt self conscious of scars left by acne scarring it may be time to consider booking an appointment with your dermatologist. Within one to three sessions, laser skin resurfacing using fractionated laser technology can even out the skin surface and increase new collagen formation to help fill in acne scars.
Non-ablative lasers stimulate the production of collagen without damaging the skin’s surface. Meanwhile, ablative lasers (i.e. CO2 and erbium) vaporize the scar, allowing smoother skin to take its place. Filler injections can also prove beneficial at filling in the indentations left behind from deep acne scars however the downside to fillers is that they need to be repeated every four to six months, as the product re-absorbs into the skin over time.
To ensure you receive the very best treatment for your acne scarring contact an experienced dermatologist. Dr. Maria Gonzalez of the Specialist Skin Clinic has over 20 years experience in treating a variety of skin conditions including the use of lasers for the treatment of acne scarring.
