Fractional Laser for Acne Scarring: The Benefits and Potential Risks

Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages. While it’s often associated with teenagers, adults can also suffer from acne breakouts. Unfortunately, some cases of severe acne may leave behind lasting scars on the face or other areas of the body. Fortunately, Fractional Laser treatments offer a way to reduce or remove these acne scars and improve the appearance of the skin.Fractional Laser is a Health Canada-cleared laser treatment designed to reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scarring. It works by using tiny beams of laser light to target deep layers of skin in order to stimulate natural collagen production and encourage cell regeneration. This results in smoother, more even-toned skin with reduced visibility of blemishes and scarring.

Procedure and Benefits of Fractional Laser

The procedure itself is relatively quick, with most treatments lasting around 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. During the treatment, you will be given protective eyewear due to bright flashes of light from the laser equipment. Most patients report minimal discomfort during a Fractional Laser session; however, topical anesthetics can be used to minimize any discomfort if necessary. After treatment, there may be temporary flushing or redness, which should subside within a few days or weeks following treatment.One major benefit of a Fractional Laser is that it can effectively improve mild to moderate cases of acne scarring without causing too much disruption to daily life, as recovery time is short and minimal downtime is required after each session. Furthermore, since only small beams of light are used at any one time, there is no risk of further damage occurring as a result of over-treatment, so your skin remains safe throughout the process.Unlike many other laser treatments, there are very few known risks associated with Fractional Lasers when carried out by an experienced professional such as infection or pigmentation changes after treatment; however, this tends to be rare when good hygiene practices are followed throughout each session.It’s important to note that while Fractional Laser can significantly reduce visible signs of acne scarring, it cannot 100% guarantee permanent results; however, multiple sessions may be needed in order for significant improvements in skin texture and tone to become visible and longer-lasting results tend to occur when treatments take place at regular intervals over time rather than having one single session for maximum efficacy.  In addition, lifestyle habits such as regular hydration are essential for maintaining healthy-looking skin post-treatment, so it’s important that you follow your healthcare provider’s advice regarding post-care regimes such as avoiding direct sunlight on treated areas or wearing sunscreen when outdoors during daylight hours etc.
