Acne scars can be treated!

Acne skin disease

Of acne (Acne vulgaris, "common acne") affects around 70 to 95% of all adolescents. Around 85% of the population suffer from acne at least once in their life. This makes it the most common skin disease worldwide. Boys and young men are affected a little more often. Because the cause of acne is a hormonal change, which leads to an increased production of androgens. On the one hand, these cause increased sebum production in the sebum gland follicles, on the other hand, they lead to increased keratinization. This leads to a closure of the gland outlet. The sebum can no longer flow off and builds up in the gland, which is growing ever wider as a result. Since the pressure cannot escape and bacteria multiply in the gland as a result, inflammation and pus formation occur. The consequences are Pimples, Blackheads, Papules and Pustules.

How do acne scars develop?

The good news: For most people, acne subsides with age and often disappears entirely after puberty. However, unsightly acne scars remain on some sufferers. That happens especially when it's a very severe form of acne has acted, or if she treated inadequately or as an amateur has been. For example, squeezing out the pimples can make the scarring even worse, as it allows bacteria to get into the wound and also destroys the connective tissue in this area. There are two types of acne scars:

  • atrophic acne scars
  • hypertrophicAcne scars

The atrophic acne scars are deeper (read: below the normal skin level) lying scars. Not enough new connective tissue was formed here, which creates the typical acne "craters". At hypertrophic acne scars the opposite is the case. Too much new connective tissue has formed here in the course of the skin's repair mechanism. This leads to visible thickening of the skin.

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Acne Scar Treatment?

A great advantage of laser therapy is the fact that it can treat both hypertrophic and atrophic acne scars. At Dermacare in Vienna, they rely on one fractionated CO2 laserto be able to treat acne scars. This type of laser removes acne scars by laser cutting tiny holes in the skin. The body's own regeneration mechanisms then close these small injuries with new tissue. Since parts of the skin surface remain untouched during treatment with the CO2 laser, the healing process of the skin only takes about three to five days. For an optimal result are about three to five treatments necessary. These are set at an interval of four to six weeks to give the skin the time it needs to regenerate. In addition, the use of the CO2 laser stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin.
