Is PicoSure laser good for acne scars?

acne scars before and after laser

Acne is caused when tiny holes in the skin, known as hair follicles, become blocked. Sebaceous glands are tiny glands found near the surface of your skin. The glands are attached to hair follicles.

Acne scars are the result of inflammation of acne blemishes. The acne pore swells and a breakdown occurs in the wall of the pore. Some acne blemishes are small and the scars created are shallow and heal quickly. Sometimes the contents of blemishes spill into the surrounding tissue and cause deeper scars.

Types of Acne Scars

Not all acne scars are the same. They can vary greatly by shape and appearance. The PicoSure® can help treat the following acne scar types:

Boxcar Scars
These scars can affect your skin at varying levels of deepness. They appear as U-shaped marks that are wide and have sharp edges.

Ice Pick Scars
These scars are often very deep. They make small, round perforations in our skin and can sometimes resemble chicken pox scars.

Rolling Scars
This term refers to a type of scarring that makes wide indentations on your skin. The marks it causes usually have round edges and create a “rolling” look on your skin.

Non-laser Medical Remedies for Acne Scars Treatment

Many over-the-counter medications are available to assist people to manage their acne and lessen the appearance of scars.picosure laser acne scars treatment Toronto Ontario

Salicylic acid

Salicylic acid is a naturally occurring chemical that is frequently used in acne treatments. Salicylic acid helps to eliminate dirt, skin cells, and other debris from the pores of the skin, which causes acne.

It also helps to reduce swelling and redness in the area, potentially reducing scarring.

 All scar types benefit from salicylic acid. Most acne sufferers will find it useful as part of their daily skincare routine.

 People with sensitive skin should test a product containing this acid on a tiny patch of skin before applying it to their full face, as it may cause irritation or dryness.

Alpha hydroxy acids

AHAs can aid in the removal of dead skin cells and the prevention of clogged pores. AHAs may be prescribed by doctors to treat acne and reduce the appearance of acne scars.

 AHAs are a type of mild acid that removes the top layer of skin to reveal new, healthy skin beneath.This procedure may assist with scarring-related discoloration.

Lactic acid

Lactic acid can be used as a mild peel to remove dead skin cells. It may aid in the reduction of scars and the smoothing of the skin’s overall texture.

Lactic acid can also help lighten black scar tissue, while it can induce hyperpigmentation in some people. Because of this risk, it’s best to test lactic acid-containing solutions on a tiny area of skin before using them to heal acne scarring.

Lactic acid is found in several acne treatments. It’s also in diluted apple cider vinegar, making it a more natural and cost-effective treatment option.

Laser Treatment for Acne Scars - How Does PicoSure® Laser Remove My Acne Scars?

PicoSure® is a acne scars treatment approved by the FDA for treating acne scars. PicoSure® has a unique method of delivering concentrated energy in short bursts, called pico. Pico technology is regarded as one of the most advanced laser treatments currently available on the market.

These energy bursts break apart the scar tissue into tiny pieces, which your body then reabsorbs naturally. When your skin grows back, the new cells show less evidence of the acne that was present. This process improves both the colour and the texture of your scars.

Laser acne scar removal technology can reach the blood vessels deep in your skin, reducing the discoloration of your scars. Doing so minimizes the contrast between the scarred area of your face and the rest of your colouring.

Laser acne scar removal technology penetrates deeply into your skin, stimulating the production of collagen. Collagen refines the skin, making the scars less visible.

Benefits of PicoSure® Laser for Acne Scars Treatment

  • PicoSure® Laser Breaks down scar tissue, creating smoother more even texture.
  • PicoSure® Laser Reaches blood vessels deep in your skin, reducing discoloration of your scars.
  • PicoSure® Laser Stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, creating natural healing process.
  • Non-invasive and Fast Recovery Time – some redness for a few days.
  • Effective and Works Fast – Unlike many over the counter remedies for acne scars, you don’t need to wait long to see results. You will see clearer, smoother skin post treatment right away and your skin will continue to improve for several days after.

Q&A Laser for Acne Scars Treatment

Laser works by targeting the affected area with a beam of concentrated light at a specific energy level. This focused energy stimulates the tissue, essentially triggering it to repair. Over time, after multiple procedures, the scar’s pigment will appear more and more like the surrounding skin. At best, laser therapy can completely remove acne scars. At the very least, this treatment option can greatly reduce their appearance

Laser treatment has been shown to be effective at treating trauma, burns, or surgery scars. Laser can be used to reduce a scar’s appearance and minimize pain and itching. Laser treatment can also prevent scars from forming after surgery. Lasers can help stimulate new, healthy skin growth. Although laser treatment cannot completely remove scars, it can make them less noticeable. Laser treatment combined with PRP micro needling improves the outcome even more.

Within 7 to 10 days, you will see visible results of your laser treatment for acne scarring and will notice the scars are much less visible. Results of this treatment are permanent.

Yes, PicoSure® laser for acne scars is a very safe procedure. The lasers utilize a refined technology that can treat the deeply scarred areas of your skin without affecting the surrounding tissues.
