What are back acne scars?
Acne, or to refer to it by its full name, Acne Vulgaris, is a commonplace skin condition. It often occurs during a person’s teenage years but can carry on throughout adult life. Common areas of the skin where acne can occur include the back and face. Although the pimples and nodules of acne can clear up, they often leave scars which are often a source of great embarrassment and low self-esteem for people throughout their life. The most common acne scars are ‘ice pick scars’, named due to the deep mark they leave on a person’s skin. Acne scars result from abnormal collagen levels present where the skin is trying to heal from acne. Thankfully, they are treatable.
How to get rid of back acne scars
Back acne scars can have a severe effect on ones self-esteem and confidence; the determination to get rid of acne scars is a very deep desire for many people. There are two excellent methods available for the removal of back acne scars. These two methods include ProFractional Therapy and MicroLaser Peel. Depending on the specific scenario or diagnoses these two processes can work separately or in conjunction with each other; these factors are reliant on the independent needs of the acne scar removal patient.
Back Acne Treatment with MicroLaser Peel
The MicroLaser Peel works to heal back acne scars, wrinkles and pigmentation problems by removing the top layers of the patient’s skin. In terms of safety and recovery time, the MicroLaser Peel is second to none. After undergoing this treatment many people are able to go back to wearing makeup within a couple of days, which is why the MicroLaser Peel is often called the ‘Weekend Peel’. An added bonus of this treatment, aside from acne scar removal, is the anti-aging effect. The treated skin will be left with a youthful glow and an immediately noticeable smoothness.
ProFractional Therapy Back Acne Scar Treatment
The second method for acne scar removal is ProFractional Therapy. This treatment is a type of laser resurfacing. Despite the somewhat intimidating sound of laser resurfacing, it is actually a gentle process. ProFractional therapy involves a laser creating thousands of tiny pinpoints on a very thin layer of the skin, called the epidermis, which is about as thick as a sheet of paper. The points created by the treatment aids in promoting the body’s natural collagen production and the healthy areas of skin surrounding these points use the body’s natural healing process for rejuvenate. This results in much smoother skin with vastly improved effects on scars, wrinkles and other skin irregularities.
ProFractional combined with MicroLaser Peel Gets Rid of Back Acne
The two treatments work together for even better results. When used in combination, the ProFractional treatment will act deeply on the skin to fix irregularities while the MicroLaser Peel provides a great, youthful looking finish on the top layers. Using these two techniques in conjunction is a very powerful treatment for back acne scars.
