Acne scars are often an unwanted reminder of the acne and pimples you have faced before. These scars come in a number of types and some can vanish in a short period of time while there are some which are stubborn and more permanent. Having acne scars can leave you feeling insecure about your appearance and add more stress on how to get rid of them.
The root of these acne scars dates back to teenage and puberty years, but as adults, we find out that we are still battling against acne and pimples. Luckily, we are able to have access to current laser technology used by skin specialists and aesthetic doctors to treat skin issues like acne scar removal treatment with better efficacy. Get to know some of the common laser treatment for acne in Singapore below.
Fraxel Dual Laser
Fraxel DUAL laser treatment is used to effectively treat a variety of skin problems such as pigmentation, ageing lines and wrinkles, and improve acne scarring. Through a partially ablative laser resurfacing technique, the treatment uses a dual wavelength 1550nm and 1927 nm laser to penetrate deep into the dermal layers of the skin and resurface scarred skin. It also helps to promote collagen production and ultimately improve skin texture. Fraxel laser treatments are non-ablative thus there are minimal recovery time and side effects.
Edge Fractional CO2 Laser
The Edge CO2 Fractional Laser delivers fine, precise laser beams that target selected areas of the skin to treat intensively. Ideal for depressed acne scars, this laser will stimulate the collagen production and speed up overall healing. It also treats age spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and leaves scars lighter and shallower. While the laser’s parameters can be adjusted to customise treatment, patients can also expect a slight tightening effect which results in a smoother, even complexion. This treatment has a reasonable price point and minimal downtime.
Infini Fractional RF Treatment
Using a patented microneedle system, Infini is the best treatment for very deep acne scars. The microneedles send radiofrequency (RF) energy up to 3.5mm deep below the skin. This makes the treatment extremely effective to treat deep acne scars and stimulate the body’s natural collagen and healing processes that aid in acne scar removal. It also helps to lift the face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and rejuvenate the overall skin complexion.
Various laser treatments are suitable on different severities of the scars such as depressed and very deep scars. Depending on your skin and acne scar type, these treatments can aid you to get rid of acne scars or minimize their appearance drastically.
