Lasers are one of your dermatologist’s most powerful tools for treating acne scars and other cosmetic conditions. Laser therapy works by focusing a beam of ultraviolet light onto the affected skin. Once the skin is damaged by the light, your body will begin to produce new, healthier skin. Impacted layers of skin are destroyed during the procedure in order for new growth to appear smooth and blemish-free.
Laser treatment methods work differently on varying types of acne scars and skin types. By offering more types of laser treatment, your dermatologist can better guarantee results. Deeper depressions may not respond as well to laser treatments but typically depressed and raised acne both respond well to laser treatment.
