Many women and men suffer with acne skin damage on their faces, long after they no longer suffer from acne. Although the initial blemish might be gone, acne scars can dent the confidence of those who suffer from them. So, how can you finally heal these marks to reveal clear and blemish-free skin?
Waterloo Medical Cosmetics answers this question through the Evo Light laser treatment. This advanced laser technology has been shown to reduce acne scars by up to 80% when combined with other therapies. The Evo Light laser is quick and highly effective.
In this article, we will share how to get rid of acne scars and why some treatments may work better than others.
Why Your Acne Leaves Scars
Acne scars are caused by the effects of acne on your skin, including inflammation and infection. These issues cause permanent damage to the dermal layer of your skin, resulting in discolouration, texture changes, and indentations. These blemishes are difficult or impossible to cover with makeup or facial creams alone.
Acne scars can be treated in various ways, including lasers, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion, all of which are available at Waterloo Medical Cosmetics, and can be discussed with one of our Skin Specialists.
Acne removal with laser technology is an effective way to treat acne scars. The laser emits targeted energy into the damaged tissue below the skin's surface, stimulating new collagen production and helping to eliminate scarred tissue.
Chemical peels are also used to reduce acne scarring by removing damaged cells from the outer layer of skin with chemicals such as glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). The procedure may be repeated several times depending on how much damage has been done by acne and whether there are deep indentations left behind.
Dermabrasion removes scarred skin using fine particles rubbed over affected areas under local anaesthesia. The treatment does not leave behind any noticeable marks during the healing time.
What is the Evo Light Laser?
The Evo Light laser is a non-invasive, Health Canada-approved, laser-based technology that uses bi-directional lasers to safely and effectively treat acne scars.
How Does it Work?
The Evo Light laser is a non-ablative fractional laser. It uses light energy to break down the bonds of aged collagen in the skin and penetrates deep into your skin's tissues.
The laser stimulates collagen production, effectively removing old scars and preventing new ones from forming by protecting against inflammation and bacteria buildup within pores. The Evo Light laser can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, remove acne scars, and improve overall skin texture and tone.
Unlike other methods of removing acne scars the laser technology doesn't cause any damage to surrounding tissue. It simply targets the area where you want to see results.
This treatment will not leave scars and does not require surgery or general anaesthesia like other methods. In addition, each session only takes about 15-30 minutes (or less depending on the severity and number of treatment areas).
