Scars do not harm as such but they might make some people feel conscious especially if it is in a visible area such as the face.
What are Scars?
Scars or marks on the skin are formed as a response by your body's healing capabilities and can be caused by various reasons such as acne, accidental injury or burns, and surgical scars. So, when the body naturally heals this injury it stimulates the collagen production but in cases when the body responds in an overwhelming manner to heal the wounds the collagen is produced in a disorganized manner leading to the formation of a scar.
Which laser technology is effective for Acne Scars?
At Kyra Clinic we use Lumenis' UltraPulse Fractional ActiveFX and DeepFX, a combination of the two most advanced technology to help you do away with the scar as well as improve the skin tone abnormalities. This comprehensive treatment also helps to improve the texture of the skin with minimal risks and no downtime. Another advantage is the patient comfort as the laser is a non-invasive and painless treatment.
What is ActiveFX?
ActiveFX is a fractional laser technique which uses a high-energy beam of laser light. This beam focuses on the outermost layer of the skin and causes it to peel off by generating the required amount of heat. Therefore you can expect an improved texture and tone with the reconstruction of your skin. The recovery period is much quicker as compared to other scar revision techniques.
What is DeepFX?
In contrast to ActiveFX, the DeepFX focuses on the deep dermal layer of your skin. This technique uses laser microbeams which eliminate a narrow string of scar tissues causing controlled injury and thereby stimulating the production of new collagen in the dermis. This new collagen is built in an organized manner which ultimately dissipates the scar.
