Acne Scar Removal

Acne scar removal is a contact free procedure that uses laser technology. The first step involves a topical cream that is a mild anesthetic. This cream helps to relieve any pain that may be felt by the patient, even though the process is usually considered to be painless. After preparation, a computer-guided laser that emits heat is used to burn away acne scar glands that produce the chemical for acne formation. This both effectively rids the client of scars and effectively prevents future acne. The process usually takes less than an hour, and is reasonably priced. Recovery times vary depending on how extensive the scarring was. However, recovery usually takes between one and two weeks.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are a form of acne scar treatment that can reduce scars on the hand, neck, chest, back or face. Chemical peels have the ability to rid patients of mild scarring from factors like acne or sun damage. The procedure for a chemical peel acne scarring treatment is fairly simple. A layer of chemicals is spread around the area that is being treated. These chemicals consist of an acidic base which, when removed, takes with it the topmost layer of skin.

Recovery time is shown to vary with the strength of the treatment.
