Pixel Laser Resurfacing:Does it Fade Acne Scars Really?

Updated on October 29, 2015

Acne doesn’t just breach our skin’s surface but also is a party-crasher for our confidence. It comes uninvited and snatches all our undivided attention. The worst part is, they leave their trails once they are gone too. The trouble of acne would be written all over in forms of scars for people to see.

Regardless of the extent of severity of acne scars, what is most important is that a scar is now, no longer a permanent mark and can be removed with appropriate treatment and care. The advancements in aesthetic cosmetic dermatology have opened a world of ways for people with acne scars to fade them away and considerably improve their appearance and texture. One of the great and sure shot ways to fade the acne scars is the advanced Pixel laser skin resurfacing treatment where fractionated Erbium YAG Laser is used.

What is Pixel Laser Resurfacing?

Fractionated Erbium YAG Laser or Pixel laser resurfacing treatment improves the skin appearance by affecting only a fraction of skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser spots penetrating the skin. The Pixel laser light passes through the skin via tiny channels into deeper layers of skin without damaging the skin surrounding the entry channels. Healthy rim of skin around each of these channels gets stimulated and produces new collagen. The collagen thus produced, smoothens out the acne scars, tightens the skin thus reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and other textural problems.

However, before you go for this amazing clinical treatment to reduce your acne scarring, it is essential that you initially understand what acne scars are.

Acne scars are nothing but the messy repaired site left behind by acne. When skin tissue suffers an injury or a pimple, the body rushes its repair mechanism to the injury or pimple site. However, once the repair is done they may leave a depression or elevation in the form of scar or altered skin colour in the form of brown to black marks.

Pixel laser resurfacing treatment is an advanced cosmetic aesthetic procedure and it not only treats acne scars but also addresses a whole lot of other skin concerns like:

  • Improving the appearance of depressed injury scars, and surgical scars
  • Softening fine lines and rough skin texture
  • Fading the stretch marks away
  • Minimizes large pores thus making skin healthy
  • Reduces pigmentation, marks and evens out the skin tone
  • Lessens the presence of melasma

Since the treatment of acne scars with Fractionated Erbium YAG Laser is a clinical treatment, it should be done by certified cosmetic dermatologists in advanced skin and hair clinics like Oliva.

The best part about Fractionated Pixel Laser Resurfacing is that it takes not more than 30-45 minutes. The procedure is preceded by application of a topical anaesthetic cream as shown in the video below. This helps in preparing the skin for laser penetration and also alleviates any discomfort. During the treatment, the laser equipment is gently glided across the treatment area with variable stacking on the skin depending on the skin as planned by the doctor. The treatment plan and the energy is customized according to the depth and type of scars.

Post the procedure the skin starts to heal with the production of new skin collagen. Visible difference in the appearance of scars can be seen in just 2 to 3 sessions and complete smooth skin can be achieved with recommended 6 to 8 sessions or as decided by the consulting cosmetic dermatologist, depending on the extent of appearance of scars.

No one needs to live with acne scarring and that includes you too. Pixel laser resurfacing treatment really works and the thousand of satisfied clients at Oliva are a testimony to this. It is better to act early and consult the cosmetic dermatologists at Oliva and flaunt the smoothness of skin hiding behind the scary acne scars.
