Types of Laser Treatment for Acne Scar Removal
The ALCS cosmetic experts use two types of laser treatments for acne scar removal in Jaipur.
Ablative Resurfacing : If you opt for a single session that leads to miraculously good results for your acne scar treatment, this one is for you! However, which type of laser treatment is best for you, should be left at the decision of ALCS doctors as they are the experts and give best decision after a complete examination of the patient. It is ideal for patients seeking a dramatic improvement in a single session. Ablative Resurfacing is one of the most efficient acne scar treatment procedures. In this process, the top layer of skin containing scars is damaged with the help of laser. The laser also stimulates the collagen, a protein compound responsible for the elasticity and repairing of our skin. You get a smooth, scar-free and fresh skin.
Non-ablative Resurfacing : This is a good option for people who want to have a gentle laser treatment for acne scars. In this process, the collagen is stimulated with the help of a smooth laser. The epidermis or the outer skin layer remains undamaged but is simply improved with the help of laser. The process requires several sittings but of course, the downtime is comparatively lesser. You get a tighter, scar-free and smoother skin with the help of non-ablative skin resurfacing method.
