FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Reports of our previous patients say that each of the procedures done in our acne scar removal treatments can be well-tolerated. However, we still provide topical anesthesia, and even inject local anesthesia, when needed in order to make the treatment more comfortable for our patients.
Each session may range from fifteen minutes up to an hour or more depending on how large the area that needs to receive treatment is. The number of sessions it takes to clear out the acne and scars also varies from patient to patient. On average, a patient may require three to six sessions, one every three to six weeks. Each treatment will be determined by the severity of the acne and scarring as well as the specific aesthetic goals of each client. Hence, a thorough consultation must be done first before any treatment is given.
Acne scars will begin to show improvement in 2 treatments but a series of 3 to 5 treatments is recommended for optimum aesthetic results.
Typical side effects include temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site. Unwanted pigmentation associated with the acne scarring should slightly frost (whiten) during treatment, then darken over the following 24 hours and then shed over time.
1. Keep your skin clean and moisturized (especially the treated areas)
After fractional scar treatment, the skin’s integrity is usually compromised, making it vulnerable to bacteria and dirt. It is of utmost importance that the aftercare is done properly to the treated areas of the skin.
It is safe to wash your face a few hours after the acne scar treatment, unless advised otherwise. Be sure to use a mild cleanser without acids and exfoliating particles twice a day. Apply a light moisturizer after cleansing to prevent the skin from drying out and delaying the healing process.
If your doctor has prescribed topical medication after treatment, it is important to follow the instructions for application during the recovery period.
2. Sun avoidance/Sunscreen
Post-treatment, it is vitally important for sun avoidance. This is to reduce the risk of post-treatment hyperpigmentation, which are dark marks that are formed over the areas of treated skin. Sunscreen should also be applied only 24 hours after treatment.
3. Avoid make-up post treatment
Refrain from wearing makeup for at least 24 hours following the acne scar treatment. Makeup may impede the healing process by entering the wounds on your skin and being a source of infection. In addition, the ingredients within cosmetics have a potential to cause further irritation to the skin.
After 72 hours (3 days), light makeup may be applied to but it is safer to only start your full routine after all the scabs have healed.
4. Applying skincare actives only as advised.
Topical retinoids and exfoliants should be withheld until the initial skin healing process is complete, usually 7 to 10 days post-procedure.
5. Avoid picking at the skin after treatment
Scabs may form after fractional laser treatments. These may remain on the face from 5 to 10 days later. Picking at these scabs will only delay the healing process and increase the risk of infection and scar formation.
