One of the most popular and commonly requested skin concerns that people look to treat with PicoSure laser treatments is acne scarring. Acne scars often range from dark spots and hyperpigmentation, to more prominent impressions in the skin caused by blemishes, inflamed acne lesions or cysts that damages the delicate skin tissue and leaves heavy indentations and abnormal pigmentation behind. Similar kinds of scarring can also often occur on the neck, chest or back.
While some forms of acne scarring may be alleviated and reduced in appearance through the use of topical skincare, such as regular exfoliation and the use of scar-fading treatments and serums, heavily indented scars that form deeper in the skin layers are harder to treat.
Unlike other cosmetic options available on the market to treat acne scarring such as microdermabrasion, fillers or skin grafting, PicoSure’s skin rejuvenating treatments are non-invasive, require minimal downtime and have guaranteed results. As the world’s first, fastest, safest and most effective picosecond laser technology, PicoSure uses ultra-short and fast bursts of laser light energy to penetrate the surface of the skin, gently targeting pigmentation or abrasions, encouraging the body’s natural healing process to sweep away older, damaged tissue and rebuild it with new collagen and elastin. This is accomplished without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.
PicoSure treatment sessions are quick and effective, taking as little as 30 minutes or less, depending on the size of the targeted area. Little to no downtime is experienced with PicoSure as the laser does not break the surface of the skin or cause any lasting harm. Noticeable results will be apparent as early as the first treatment, but following your clinic professional’s advice, it may take up to 3-7 consistent sessions to achieve your desired result.
With both FDA approval and a TGA listing you can be assured, by choosing PicoSure for your laser acne scarring treatment, you are sure to receive safe, effective and pain-free results – to achieve a clear and even complexion.
