How to Get Rid of Acne Scars with Smoothbeam Laser
- Posted on: Jul 15 2017
As an adult, you may assume that you have left your awkward junior high self behind— you know, the one with the braces, acne, and body that’s going through puberty. And although you may have been able to leave most of that part of your life in the past, acne scars can make you feel like you are still in the 7th grade. Luckily, here at Allure Skin and Laser, we have a variety of treatments— including the Smoothbeam Laser— that can help you get rid of your acne scars and forget about junior high once and for all. Read on to learn more about this treatment.
How Does It Work?
Laser technology is used to treat all different parts of the body— especially the skin. The Smoothbeam laser, in particular, is ideal for treating acne scars because it targets the deepest layers of the skin and promotes collagen growth. The more collagen your skin can produce, the smoother your scars will be.
Is It Effective?
Our patients here at Allure Skin and Laser notice a 50-60% improvement in their appearance of acne scars after just one treatment.
How Many Treatments Do I Have to Get?
Depending on how severe your acne scars are and the type of skin that you have will help our doctors determine how many treatments you need. On average, however, most patients need about four to six treatments to get the best results.
What Is Recovery Like?
Just like with any laser procedure for the skin, there is no downtime involved with the Smoothbeam laser. However, your skin will be red and a little bit tender directly following each session, but it should subside after just a day or two.
If you have acne scars that are making you reminisce about how horrible your acne filled childhood was, then it may be time to consider getting a procedure like Smoothbeam laser from Allure Skin and Laser.
