Acne Scarring and Stretch Marks
Research has shown that the non - ablative (does not break the skin) N-Lite laser as well as stimulating collagen production has an anti - inflammatory effect resulting in the softening of scar tissue including the improvement of stretch marks. The number of treatments necessary depends on the type of lesion and each individual's collagen and wound healing response. Usually at least six treatments are needed for many of the scars that we see.
Acne scars are dermal depressions most commonly caused by collagen destruction during the course of an inflammatory skin disease such as cystic acne or varicella. Scarring after inflammatory or cystic acne can manifest as atrophic, saucerized, ice pick, or boxcar scars. While ice pick and boxcar scars respond best to dermal filler augmentation or punch excision( treatments which we do not offer in our clinic), acne scars usually respond well to laser therapy. The N-Lite Pulsed Dye Laser stimulates collagen to be laid down within a scar by activating a healing response resulting in reduced scarring and improved skin tone
Stretch marks are an example of an atrophic scar in the body that can be helped by the N-Lite Pulsed Dye Laser. This is especially beneficial when the scars are fresh and red rather than when they are older and paler. By stimulating collagen regeneration, the skin can tighten and the overall texture can improve. Please remember we would not recommend any laser treatment to pregnant or breast feeding women.
Is Laser Treatment Safe?
Treatment with the N-Lite Pulsed Dye Laser is a low energy Laser treatment that is very safe. There should be little or no discomfort during or after the treatment though you may experience some warmth in the skin. Occasionally people experience local redness or some small bruises that will settle spontaneously. The Laserase treatment is only carried out by experienced Doctors or Nurses fully trained in the use of Lasers.
