What is Acne?

Acne scars, and scars of any kind, can have a negative effect on appearance, self-image, and quality of life. Scar revision involves changing the scar tissue, to improve its appearance, but can also be done to relieve the discomfort of scars that are overly sensitive, stiff/inflexible, painful, or itchy.


How can I best treat my acne?

Scarring has been treated in many ways in the past, with limited satisfaction. The Lutronic Spectra laser uses Laser Scar Remodeling a series of carefully controlled settings to encourage the body's natural healing mechanisms to remodel the damaged, scarred skin and allow healthy skin to grow in its place.


How does Laser Scar Remodeling Work?

Extremely small pulses of laser energy (smaller than the head of a pin/needle) are introduced into the skin.  The energy stimulates your body’s natural response to create more healthy tissue and collagen.  The healing response triggered by this controlled energy usually creates dramatic improvement to the appearance, texture and flexibility of the scarred tissue.


What else do I need to know?

A series of treatments, usually one month apart, is required to effectively treat scarring.

Individuals receiving treatment should always wear sunblock if going into the sun and avoid sun exposure which can retrigger pigmentation. Your consultant can assist you in choosing an effective block that is easy to wear.
