Acne Scars Q & A

What are acne scars?

Acne scars often form after having acne, a skin condition that appears when hair follicles get clogged with oil and skin cells. It causes pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads. While acne might go away with acne treatment, the scars it leaves can remain. Fortunately, a simple solution for acne scars is available at Gorgeous D’Luxe Aesthetics.

What causes acne?

You can’t always prevent acne and the scars it causes. Factors that increase your risk of developing acne include:

  • Clogged hair follicles
  • Excessive hormones
  • Excess oil production
  • Bacteria

Hormone fluctuations, taking certain medications, your diet, and stress can make acne worse. Acne and acne scars often appear on your face, which can be embarrassing and make you feel self-conscious.

What is the treatment for acne scars?

The experienced aesthetics team at Gorgeous D’Luxe Aesthetics uses the PicoSure laser to get rid of unsightly acne scars and help you achieve smoother, younger-looking skin. The laser works by delivering energy to the skin to activate your body’s natural healing ability and boost collagen production. It uses gentle pressure versus damaging heat without pain or downtime.

During the procedure, your doctor applies the laser to your skin, which might feel like rubber bands snapping against it. Your provider can use a numbing cream to make PicoSure acne scar treatment feel comfortable. The procedure might last about 10-15 minutes, depending on the areas treated.

In addition to acne scar treatment, the PicoSure laser helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and even tattoos. Your doctor personalizes your treatment plan based on the condition of your skin.

What happens after the procedure?

You might experience mild swelling or redness for a few hours after PicoSure laser treatment. There’s no downtime, so you can resume everyday activities right away. Your doctor might recommend a series of 2-5 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

After and between treatment sessions, avoid sun exposure or use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or greater. You can apply make-up, sunscreen, or moisturizer immediately following treatment.

Don’t let acne scars ruin your self-confidence when PicoSure laser treatment is a simple, noninvasive solution that gives you the clear, radiant skin you deserve. Call Gorgeous D’Luxe Aesthetics to schedule a consultation today or use the online booking tool.
