Laser treatment for post acne scars– A review
Keywords:Acne scar, laser treatment, post treatment recovery
Background: For years, there was no successful treatment for acne scars. Now, things have changed. With the development of new technologies, those suffering from acne scarring have multiple options to improve the tone and texture of the skin. Laser treatments, including ablative and non ablative laser skin resurfacing are among available treatment options.
Methods: The aim of writing this paper is to review information about acne scarring, as well as potential treatments by laser. The paper will first concentrate on introduction and classification of acne scarring, then go on to treatment modalities specifically by laser. This paper will also focus on post treatment recovery time, side effects and methods to prevent and treat those side effects.
Conclusion: Ultimate goal of any intervention in acne scarring is not total cure or perfection; rather it is making scars less visible.
