Acne Scar Laser Treatment at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

At AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, we use laser to treat acne scars to reduce their visual impact. Both Dr Selvam and Dr Nirmala, renowned cosmetic surgeons, have over 20 years of experience in this field.

AKJ Skin and Laser Centre is the sole clinic in Tamil Nadu to get Fraxel and UltraPulse machine. These two laser systems are the most advanced scar revision technologies used across the world. These machines are available only at select laser and cosmetic clinics in India and across the globe.

The following are some of the many advantages of laser acne scar treatment:
  • Encourages the body to produce its collagen, leading to skin that is permanently firmer, younger, and free of visible imperfections with minimal downtime.
  • It's painless and non-invasive.
  • Exfoliates, Refreshes and Improves the skin's appearance

Processes for Laser Treatment At AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

Acne causes altered collagen because of inflammation and leads to skin depression. Acne scars are best treated with a laser. The laser doesn't harm the skin around it. When applied to a spot, the heat energy produced by laser promotes collagen formation, eventually leading to the area's remodelling. That being said, lasers pose no threat whatsoever and are safe to use.

At AKJ, we offer two systems for addressing various acne-scarring conditions:

  • Fraxel System (Solta, USA): erbium glass laser technology
  • Use of a fractional CO2 laser, the ultra pulse system [Lumenis, USA]

In terms of scar revision, these systems are globally recognised as the most advanced. Each of these lasers is effective and harmless to the skin.

Fraxel uses a laser split into thousands of tiny beams to create these MicroThermal Zones, which look like little dots or pixels on the skin (MTZs).

These MTZs act like an ablative laser, penetrating deep into the skin to destroy the old cells. The laser only harms the specific MTZs it is aimed at, leaving the rest of the tissue unharmed. Because of this, the skin can heal much more quickly than if the entire epidermis were removed, as would happen with an ablative laser. Any aesthetic CO2 laser does not match the UltraPulse system's penetration depth. The ratio of ablation to coagulation is also excellent.

The controlled micro-injuries created by these treatments leave a healthy margin of skin unharmed and ensure rapid recovery with little to no downtime. The subsequent production of collagen replaces the damaged tissue, lessening and, in some cases, eliminating the appearance of scars. Before performing any procedure, the dermatologists at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre will examine the patient's medical records and perform a physical examination.

Pre Care
Post Care
You may need to modify your lifestyle to qualify for laser treatment for acne scars. To get ready for this procedure:
Stay out of the pool and away from hot water for at least two days before your session.
At least seven days before your appointment, please refrain from waxing, threading, bleaching, and other parlour activities in the treatment area.
Apply moisturiser and sunscreen before going outside.
If you want your laser acne scar removal session to be effective, you should not get any other laser treatment done in the affected area for 15 days before the scheduled procedure.
Don't take any blood-thinning medications, including aspirin, in the two weeks preceding your procedure.
Wait to light up for two weeks before your procedure.
After laser treatment, your skin will require special attention. Here are the top five pieces of advice for post-op care.
For three days after your session, you should avoid any activities that cause you to sweat heavily, including exercise, use of sauna, and swimming.
Before venturing outdoors, apply sunscreen with an SPF of 45 or higher.
For at least two weeks after a session, you shouldn't get any salon service (threading, bleaching, waxing, or facials).
Moisturise and drink plenty of water to keep your skin from cracking from lack of hydration.
Talk to your doctor about your postoperative care, and do as they say.

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

Who cannot receive the service?
Laser acne removal is not recommended for people who suffer from eczema, psoriasis, or contact dermatitis.
Are there any adverse effects of the treatment?
Redness, swelling, and skin irritation are common laser treatment side effects that can last several hours to a day. See a doctor immediately if your redness, blistering, or itching persists for more than a few days.
How long does it take to recover after the procedure?
The length of time it takes to recover is highly variable from patient to patient, depending on factors such as their healing rate and how well they follow post-treatment instructions. Therefore, recovery can range from a few days to a few weeks.
How long-lasting are the effects of the therapy?
The laser treatment provides long-lasting results. However, for the treatment to be effective, you must adhere to a set of rules and maintain control of your acne by following a skincare routine.
How many laser acne scar treatment sessions are necessary?
Your skin type, the nature of your scars, the severity of your condition, the method of treatment, all play a role in determining the number of sessions you'll need. Doctors at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre recommend 6-8 sessions to achieve visible results. As early as the second or third treatment session, the skin's texture will improve, and the appearance of scars will begin to fade.
