The problem with acne is not just the acne itself but also the scars, both physical and emotional, that it leaves behind. If the hyperpigmentation marks, red spots, deep pits, or uneven skin texture are getting you down, why not look at how laser treatments can resurface your skin so as to reveal a smooth, healthy, evenly toned skin?
1. PicoSure Laser
PicoSure® is FDA approved picosecond laser treatment that delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in picoseconds (trillionths of a second). Picosecond pulse creates an intense photomechanical impact known as PressureWave™, which is using a special focused lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure, and shatter the target particles without destroying the surrounding skin tissue. Through its unique highly targeted energy delivery, PicoSure is able to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin dermis to revitalise the skin by activating the cell signalling, to stimulate collagen and elastin production which is essential for the skin healing.
PicoSure can treat different skin conditions and is especially effective for pigmentation, acne scars, and wrinkles.
2. Fraxel Dual Laser Rejuvenation
The Fraxel® Dual Laser uses a highly focused beam of light to reduce skin irregularities like scars or blemishes. It is an all-rounder, being able to improve skin texture, attack brown spots and scars, and stimulate collagen production. And being non-ablative (which means it tackles only the deeper layers of the skin, leaving the surface layer intact), the Fraxel Dual Laser promotes new skin growth from inside out, offering faster healing, optimal results with less redness, and far less downtime than ablative lasers.
3. Fractional CO2 Laser
The Fractional CO2 laser uses computer-generated, pixelated, and electronically-generated grids to target small microscopic areas over the face (20%-40% of surface area). These lasers remove the superficial to middle layers of the skin in tiny dots all over the face to promote new skin growth, stimulate collagen, and even help remove superficial pigmentation as well. Because the targetted areas are microscopic, the unaffected areas help to heal the affected areas, reducing the downtime from two weeks to five days.
4. Fractional Erbium Laser
The Fractional Erbium laser ablates or removes a very fine layer of the epidermis (top layer of skin) in a controlled manner to reveal skin that is smooth and young looking. This laser treatment not only activates collagen to tighten the skin, it also helps to smoothen out superficial facial wrinkles and reduce acne scarring and pigmentation. It can be used to remove skin lumps and bumps as well.
