Acne Scar Removal from Island Dermatology

In the past, acne scarring was one of those things that people just had to live with. Acne scarring was just one of those things that you had the comforting of knowing, it would be with you for life. Today, though, dermatologists have new state of the art treatments for acne scar removal. The experienced staff at Island Dermatology is on the cutting edge of these technologies.

One treatment used at Island Dermatology for acne scar removal is the MicroLaser Peel. This procedure involves a laser-resurfacing device, which precisely removes the outermost layers of the skin. In comparison to older laser resurfacing procedures, the healing time for the MicroLaser Peel is dramatically decreased. The skin heals in two to four days and patients are fully healed after five. As an added benefit, not only will the patient’s acne scars be reduced but they’ll also sport a more youthful appearance.

Another method used at Island Dermatology to get rid of acne scars is called ProFractional Therapy which uses a laser to form thin channels in the patient’s skin which promotes healing from the surrounding skin, stimulating collagen and elastin formation. This is an especially effective approach for acne scar removal because the channels can be deep, as acne scars sometimes are, while leaving unaffected areas to promote quick healing.

This treatment is generally done in a series of visits or treatments but the results are almost immediate. As with the MicroLaser peel, patients are usually fully recovered in just a few days. The minor discomfort of the first few days is comparable to a minor sunburn and can be easily relieved with mild analgesics.

Finally, Island Dermatology sometimes combines both MicroLaser peel and ProFractional therapy to get rid of acne scars; this combines the advantages of each. The Fractional Therapy performs deep collagen remodel while the MicroLaser Peel puts the finishing touches on more sensitive areas like the eyes.

The method used to get rid of your acne scars will depend on a variety of factors. The experienced staff at Island Dermatology can tailor a plan to fit your needs. Call them at (206) 233-7546 and be on your way to clearer and healthier skin today.
