How to Get Rid of Acne Scars
Improve the texture of your skin
Fighting acne is never easy and it can take a toll on your self-esteem. But even after your acne has cleared up, it can leave some unsightly reminders behind. If you’ve been asking how to get rid of acne scars, Sona has effective treatment options that can help you achieve smoother skin by minimizing the appearance of scars.
What causes acne scars?
Acne is one of the most common causes of facial scarring. As the body works to heal itself after repeated breakouts, it forms new collagen fibers; however, this natural reparation process is not always perfect. Most commonly, pitted acne scars result when tissue is damaged and not enough collagen is produced.
Who gets acne scars?
Acne scarring can happen to anyone. Teenagers are particularly susceptible to severe acne caused by changing hormones, genetics and hygiene habits. As they leave puberty and their skin starts to clear up, they can often be left with damaged skin due to repeated breakouts.
What is skin resurfacing?
Laser Skin resurfacing is a procedure that works to remove unsightly acne scars and create a smoother, more even skin texture. At Sona, we use the Pixel laser, a highly effective skin resurfacing technology that has a longer history of efficacy than the Fraxel, another common laser treatment. Advantages of the Pixel laser include:Get Your Free Consultation
- More targeted treatment of specific areas of the face and body
- Uses less heat than the Fraxel CO2 laser, offering less risk and fewer temporary side effects
- No physical downtime and minimal social downtime
How can the Pixel laser help?
In essence, the Pixel laser creates tiny wounds in the skin to stimulate new collagen production while at the same time leaving a certain amount of the skin completely untouched, helping you heal much faster with minimal side effects. This procedure can be used to:
- Minimize acne scarring
- Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation
- Decrease wrinkles
- Improve skin texture, shrink pores and tighten skin
