Acne scarring, such as icepick scarring.

The Detail

Performed with the Erbium Laser using a strong local anaesthetic cream to numb the face, and the cool air blower to soothe.

The Erbium laser is first used in a fractionated (“Fraxel”) mode, with the laser light being divided into a grid of small dots. This creates deep channels in the skin, breaking down deep scar. We then follow up with a light to medium depth full-field peel, to remove damaged skin from the surface. This combination gives great results with minimum discomfort and downtime.

During recovery, we use special silicone gels to accelerate the healing of the skin. It’s important to avoid sun after treatment, to reduce the risk of increased pigmentation in the skin (higher risk with darker skin types), but we have great experience at Azure Medical with Laser Acne Scarring treatment and complications are very rare.

This can literally be a treatment that changes lives, giving sufferers of acne or acne scarring renewed confidence and therefore helping them achieve their full potential in life.
