Millions of people suffer from the embarrassing, long-term effects of acne. Thanks to major advances in non-invasive cosmetic therapy, most acne scars can be greatly diminished without surgery. Two of the most effective treatments we offer at Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center are Fraxel and Sculptra Aesthetic.
Laser resurfacing is widely considered the gold standard technique for treating widespread scarring. Fraxel is one of the most useful laser procedures for the correction of mild to moderate acne scars. It works by utilizing a minuscule laser beam to remove unwanted scar tissue. The eradication of the damaged tissue promotes collagen stimulation. This renews the skin, significantly smoothing and softening the appearance of most acne scars.
For best results, your acne should be under control before undergoing any Fraxel procedure. A series of treatments will be necessary, and in most cases a 50-75% reduction in the appearance of the scarring can be expected. Many factors will come into play, including your type of scarring and other issues.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable, biocompatible filler used to create volume and stimulate collagen production. It’s a good choice to treat certain types of acne scars. Sculptra’s volumizing effect gently stretches the skin’s surface, minimizing their appearance. Most patients require a series of three treatments, but the results can last up to two years.
While Fraxel and Sculptra deliver excellent results separately, used together the positive benefits increase exponentially. Both procedures have very different roles to play in your acne scar treatment plan.
The Fraxel laser treatment addresses the problems in the top two layers of your skin. It breaks down the acne scars and stimulates collagen to remodel new, healthy skin tissue.
Sculptra Aesthetic is injected much deeper into the skin than the Fraxel laser treatment reaches. Its job is to increase volume and firmness to the face. This makes any scarring much less noticeable. Coupled with Fraxel, the effects are dramatic and often life-changing.
If you’ve always been self-conscious about your acne scars, being free of that burden can be an enormous weight lifted from your mind – and soul.
