Laser treatment gets rid of acne marks
Hi, thanks for your question.Laser and Filler Treatments
can help fade acne scars. One to three
sessions of laser skin resurfacing using fractionated laser technology can even
out the skin surface and increase the formation of new collagen. Collagen is a protein that’s a building block
of the skins and can therefore fill in acne scars. Ablative lasers vaporize scars, allowing
smoother skin to take its place. Non-ablative lasers help activate the
production of collagen without damaging the surface of your skin. Filler
injections can also help fill in the indentations left behind from deep acne
scars. But the downside to fillers is
that they need to be repeated every 4 to 6 months, as the product reabsorbs
into the skin over time. You can also consider Cortisone and Fade Creams that
can be applied to the scarred area. If
your scar is red or swollen, use a cortisone cream to calm the skin. The cortisone is absorbed by skin cells and
reduces inflammation. Once the skin has been calmed down, you'll want to
concentrate on lightening any dark areas left from the acne scar. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived
from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and Vitamin C are great ingredients to look for in lightening

Need to see provider face-to-face to review best options for YOU.
This is a hard question to answer because there are so many variables, but the good news? The dark-marks will eventually go away on their own. If you want to speed the process up, you should meet with an experienced provider who can guide you towards the safest path (whether it's chemical peels, laser treatments, or skincare products), per your skin type and needs. Good luck!
