If you have been discouraged because of the presence of facial scars that you thought were permanent, you should make an appointment with us to discuss ways in which laser skin rejuvenation can be of benefit. You may discover that those permanent scars do not have to be so permanent after all.
One of the most common causes of facial scars is acne. It can progress to a type that is more serious than your basic acne that causes blackheads and pimples. It can become inflamed. The inflammation can also lead to an infection. It is during this phase that there is a serious risk for scars. If you have been so unfortunate as to have ended up with them, you know very well how they can impact your appearance and, in some cases, your self-esteem.
If your scars have left places in the skin that look like small pits, there is a good chance that non-ablative lasers may be able to help. These are the lasers that focus their energy into the deeper skin tissue rather than vaporizing the outer layer. The energy that is absorbed by these skin layers converts to heat. The heat, in turn, stimulates the growth of collagen.
Extra collagen in your skin can be beneficial by providing fullness. As it grows, it can help to fill in the pitted areas that have been caused by the scarring. You will then be left with skin that is smooth and even.
Laser skin rejuvenation also helps the levels of elastin in the skin to increase. It is that substance that provides enough elasticity in the skin to allow it to return to its normal shape and size when it is pulled or stretched. Increasing the elastin levels will complement the additional collagen.
Laser skin rejuvenation may be just what you have been looking for to minimize the appearance of your facial scars. During a consultation at Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology, our specialist can evaluate your scars and your skin. We can then give you a better idea of the kind of results you can expect from laser skin rejuvenation.
