Acne Scars in Monroe, LA
Certain types of acne can leave behind indentations in the skin. These types of scars may become more prominent as you get older. Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist, offers treatment for acne scars for men and women in Monroe, Shreveport, the Ark-La-Miss and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.
What Are Acne Scars?
Some types of acne become inflamed, such as cysts, papules and pustules. Once the inflammation subsides, the healing process may result in a small scar. The scars may not be problematic at first, but unfortunately as you lose collagen with age, the scars may become more visible. Fortunately, the scars can be treated to make them less noticeable.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Acne Scars?
- Resurfaces the scar to blend with surrounding skin
- In-office treatments take little time
- No downtime is needed
How Does Treatment for Acne Scars Work?
Scars form when your body quickly creates collagen fibers to close the wound. This results in a haphazard pattern that gives the scar a rough texture and slightly different color. Laser acne treatments remove some of the scar tissue allowing new skin cells to cover the wound area. The resulting treated areas blend better with the surrounding skin.
What Should I Expect from Treatment for Acne Scars?
Acne scar treatments are performed with laser technologies that are specifically designed to resurface the skin. We administer the laser energy in quick bursts. The sensation of the laser energy is similar to a minor pinch on your skin. You may need to protect your skin from sun exposure for a few days after the treatment, but no other downtime is needed.
