When a young woman in her twenties came to Island Dermatology, she was insecure and self-conscious about the scarring on her face left from years of battling acne during her teens. She felt like the damage done to her skin was now holding her back from securing employment and from dating. She was wrestling with connecting socially since leaving college life and felt that she needed to address the scarring in order to better adapt. What she wanted most was self-confidence, and each day when she looked in the mirror, she wondered what other people saw and thought.
The Mercer Island dermatologist recommended that she get a Profractional acne treatment using the Profractional Sciton Laser. This sort of treatment is a great way to address acne scarring. Acne scars can run deep, and the Profractional Sciton Laser treatment resurfaces the skin by allowing for very deep channels but without altering unaffected areas. The unaffected areas can then assist with the healing of the skin.
With only one treatment, the patient was overwhelmed with the positive results. She left with almost no remaining acne scars and a new sense of self-confidence. The Profractional Sciton Laser does a tremendous and seamless job of restoring damaged skin to a smooth and natural look. There is no need for someone who carries around scars, such as those left by acne, to go through life worrying about how others perceive their complexion.
