Pockmarks are a name that is used in reference to the scarring that a person can experience due to pimples and pustules. These scars can be pitted and difficult to conceal. Thankfully, there are options available for individuals interested in removing them or reducing their appearance. In many cases, laser scar treatment can provide much-needed relief.
Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
Fractional CO2 laser scar treatment helps improve the appearance of skin by poking microscopic holes into deep layers of the skin. This prompts the skin to generate new, healthy collagen that smooths out the face and reduces or eliminates the appearance of acne scars. This type of laser is considered a fractionated resurfacing laser as it encourages skin to heal from the wounds that are created by the laser and create a new, smoother appearance.
Fraxel® Laser Treatment
The Fraxel laser scar treatment is one of the most widely-known treatment options available for reducing pockmarks. This treatment uses microscopic columns of laser energy that penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate the healing process from within. This treatment shows promising results for smoothing out acne scars and treating brown and red marks on the skin.
KTP Laser Treatment
This laser scar treatment is generally used to treat various types of redness on the face, such as rosacea, blood vessels, and even post-inflammatory erythema. This laser can perform wonders when it comes to reducing the appearance of red acne scars. Patients usually see results within one to three treatments.
Vbeam Laser Treatment
This type of laser scar treatment works well when it comes to removing any red marks that are caused by recent acne outbreaks. This treatment works in a manner similar to the KTP laser as a vascular laser that targets the specific hemoglobin cells in the skin to reduce the appearance.
