Acne Scar Removal
If you are someone who has experienced acne in the past and now has small, pitted scars as a result, you’ll know that these do not disappear on their own. Acne scarring can be a stark reminder of the skin condition and requires clinical attention to fade or remove them. At Bank MediSpa in Hale, Cheshire, we offer laser acne scar removal, using LUMINA – a laser device from Lynton Lasers, an award-winning UK manufacturer of medical-grade laser devices, used in clinics all over the world, as well as by the NHS here in the UK.
What is acne scar removal using lasers?
As the name describes, laser acne scar removal utilises a direct laser at a specific wavelength, to remove the scars. It works in 2 different ways. Firstly, the heat that is generated by the LUMINA laser removes (ablates) the uppermost layer of skin where the scars are located. Once this layer has peeled off, the scar is less noticeable and the skin appears smoother and more evenly-toned. As the skin tissues undergo the ‘trauma’ that the laser has applied to the skin, this encourages the production of collagen and elastin as well as healthy skin cells. This means, that over time, your skin will heal itself and become softer, less pitted and healthier.
