As far as skin conditions are concerned, acne and acne scarring are among the most common, with millions of people affected by acne – in their teenage years on through adulthood – and struggling with the acne scars that are often left behind. Once acne scars have appeared, they can be difficult to treat – leaving patients feeling self-conscious and frustrated with their skin and appearance. At the Skin and Vein Center, Dr. Seiger’s knowledge and expertise gives his patients a strong sense of security and confidence. Read on to see our laser acne scar removal before and after photos!
Acne scars are often deep depressions, usually on the face, though often appearing on the body as well. Treatments may include chemical peels, microdermabrasion and other topical treatments, but one of the most effective methods for ridding the skin of acne scarring is laser acne scar removal treatments.
Patients should expect a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Seiger beforehand to discuss how many treatments will ultimately be required to achieve optimal results, as some patients have more extreme acne scarring than others. Each treatment generally takes about 30 minutes for the full face with results lasting for many years following. Patients with darker skin types may experience darkening of the skin where the laser treatment has occurred. Varying degrees of acne scarring can benefit from laser acne scar removal for patients who are willing to undergo a series of treatments spaced in three month intervals.
Laser acne scar removal results will usually be noticed as the skin peels following the first treatment, with new collagen growth occurring for the next three to six months, though results will vary depending on each individual patient. Before and after laser acne scar removal pictures will often show a dramatic improvement in the skin’s surface, with holes and dents becoming smooth and refined. With laser acne scar removal treatments, radiofrequency technology is used to carefully tighten and resurface the skin.
Cosmetic problems can be far more debilitating than their physical manifestation – acne and acne scarring especially. Acne scarring causes judgement among peers and strips away self confidence. But you don’t have to live with it anymore! At the Skin and Veins Center, Dr. Seiger gives patients back their natural, beautiful skin.
