Acne Scars Treatment.
It can be unpleasant having to live with acne scars or even with scars from previous acne treatment. Fortunately, acne scars treatment as now entered the space age. A new light therapy now offers little in terms of side effects and discomfort and your skin conditions will either be eliminated or virtually eliminated. This will really help your self esteem and raise your confidence when facing others.
This new Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy can help reduce and even remove old acne scars. The IPL targets the light onto your damaged skin, for a brief time during each session.
Dependant upon the actual condition that is being treated, the light can be calibrated to that of your blood, which can help to eradicate those unwanted red spider veins or maybe the melanin coloring within your skin which will help get rid of age related spots or even possible sun damage. It can do all this, whilst treating those unwanted acne scars. The IPL treatment damages these areas, the body either sloughs off or even absorbs the condition that as been treated. Also, the older collagen, that’s the connective tissues among your cells, is displaced by the new.
The old collagen will lose its resilience eventually. However, the new collagen will help to plump up your skin to a new fresh level. The result of which, will see your small wrinkles filled in and those scars from your acne.
If you suffer with more severe scarring because of acne, then you may need a mixture of surgery, to treat the deeper scars, and also some laser skin resurfacing. But if your scarring isn’t so severe, then IPL can offer you minimum distress in a brief moment of time.
When you go for IPL treatment, your doctor will clean the skin which will be treated, and then he/she will apply a cream to your skin in order to numb it. Shortly after, the IPL apparatus will be located over the area that needs to be treated. You will then notice the light will start pulsing and will feel similar to a rubber band snapping on your face.
You’re skin may be a little red for a day or two and you’ll need to shelter the area that as been treated from UV light. You’ll probably need about five such treatments over a period of four or five weeks for the best outcome. Unfortunately, not everyone is suitable for this type of treatment. Before you can undergo this type of treatment, you will need to take a skin patch test to be sure that this treatment is safe for you. You’ll need to see your dermatologist to undergo this test.
Ideally you’ll be dealing with a doctor who is well practiced in IPL therapy and will personally be treating you. You’ll be questioned about your medical history and your skin will be studied carefully before any acne scar treatment. After receiving your IPL therapy, you can look forward to healthier and a fresher looking complexion.
