Acne Scarring Treatments at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre In Edmonton
Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre provides a comprehensive range of treatments for acne scarring. Our highly trained professionals will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that meets your goals.
At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre, we understand that acne scars can be distressing for many people and can have a negative impact on their self-confidence. That is why we offer a number of effective treatments to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, including filler injections, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, microneedling and subcision.
Filler injections are used to raise depressed areas of skin caused by hypotrophic scarring from acne such as boxcar scars. At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre, we use hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers to plump up these areas of scarring to reduce the shadows they cast and give the skin a more even tone. The results are immediate and long-lasting, with most patients reporting noticeable improvement in the appearance of their scars after just one session.
Fractional laser resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that uses high-energy light beams to heat up the affected area and break down pigment concentrations in order to reduce the visibility of all types of acne scarring. This procedure causes microscopic wounds in the targeted area, which encourages collagen production and helps new tissue form over time. At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre, our lasers are designed specifically for treating facial skin conditions, including acne scars and deliver excellent results with minimal downtime.
A TCA cross is another popular treatment for acne scarring at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre. This involves using a fine needle to insert a small amount of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) into the skin in order to break down collagen in the scar and improve its appearance. TCA also stimulates the production of new collagen, which helps give your skin an even texture over time. It is important to note that this procedure may require multiple sessions for the best results.
Microneedling is another fantastic option available at our centre for treating acne scars, as it encourages natural healing processes within your skin while stimulating collagen production at the same time. Fine needles create micro-injuries on your face which stimulate collagen formation helping improve texture overall while reducing any discolouration due to scarring or hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage over time.
Subcision is another effective treatment offered at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre used to treat deeper types such as rolling or ice pick scars often caused by severe cases of cystic acne or other forms of trauma sustained when young. During this procedure, a fine needle is used under local anesthetic to break apart fibrous bands below your skin’s surface, which pull down on it creating depressions where acne has occurred previously; this then improves blood circulation in those areas resulting in healthier tissue regeneration which leads over time to improved texture overall due once again to increased collagen formation.
