Severe acne can often leave its mark for years in the form of red, purplish or atrophic scars (commonly referred to as depressed or “ice pick” scars or pockmarks). Luckily, a series of fractional resurfacing treatments like Fraxel re:store laser can remove this damaged tissue and produce fresh, healthy skin.
FDA-approved for treating both acne and surgical scars, it works by using microscopic laser light to target specific areas below the skin’s surface. The laser stimulates a natural healing process below the skin, jump-starting collagen production and allowing new skin to emerge.
Several sessions may be required to address the entire surface of the skin. Post-procedure, redness and swelling may occur for a couple days.
