Laser Revitalization Treatments for Acne Scars

Laser Revitalization Treatments for Acne Scars
There are a lot of myths out there, and acne only impacting teens is one of them. In reality, acne can affect children and adults. Acne scars could form as a result, which is something that you do not want to occur. However, if it does happen, there are treatments available to help you get rid of those scars, such as laser treatment and fillers. 
Your body’s inflammatory reaction to bacteria, damaged cells in a spot that was caused by acne, and the sebum is what causes acne scars to form. A simple wound or injury could lead to acne scars. Most scarring occurs due to an inflamed lesion, such as a cyst or papule. Excess oils and dead skin can also cause acne scars to form. The greater the inflammation is, the more likely you are to suffer from scarring. 
Even though no one wants to have blackheads, non-inflamed blemishes, or whiteheads on their skin, it is unlikely that these skin issues will cause acne scars to form. These types of lesions are not known for injuring your skin tissue, so they typically do not cause scarring. 
There are different types of acne scars, such as depressed scars and raised scars. If you have depressed scars, also referred to as Atrophic Scars, they are known to cause acne pits. An example of a depressed scar is a boxcar scar or an ice pick scar. The loss of collagen or tissues underneath your epidermis is what causes depressed scars to form. If you have raised scars, also referred to as Hypertrophic Scars and Keloids, the increased tissue regeneration in your dermis is what causes these acne scars to form. 
The good news is that acne scars can be treated, as long as you follow a treatment plan to soften and diminish the scars. It is true that acne scars can be stubborn, which is why you should always seek treatment from a professional that has expertise in this area. Lakewood Aesthetics is just that professional for you!
