Erase Years of Damage With Just a Few Fraxel Laser Treatments at the Miami Center for Dermatology

Laser Acne Removal Treatment

There is nothing worse than working hard and being consistent in treating something, only for the end result to be less than perfect. This is the unfortunate reality for individuals who have struggled with severe acne. More often than not, even if you are very careful in the treatment of your skin, facial scars are left behind and are noticeable far after the acne has cleared. At the Miami Center for Dermatology, we recognize that all you want is clear, beautiful skin, and we are here to help you accomplish that! Our Laser Acne Removal Treatment is incredibly effective for those scars and will eliminate them in no time at all.

Acne scars are a part of the natural healing process of the skin after it has been wounded or injured. When the dermis gets damaged by an inflamed lesion, pustule, cyst, or papule, the blemish leaves behind a stubborn scar. The worst of these lesions occur when the pore gets infected with bacteria and ruptures from deep within the skin’s surface. Those that arise more shallowly on the complexion are likely not to scar at all.

Finding the right combination of products that are best suited to treat your acne-prone skin can take months, and sometimes even years. While you are likely to find the proper regime that works for you eventually, there is typically significant damage done at that point. It may be too late to reverse the clock on the scars on your skin, but it is never too late to seek an effective solution! Our team at The Miami Center for Dermatology is confident that Fraxel laser treatments are just what you need to turn your whole life around.

Acne Scar Treatment

Fraxel laser, also referred to as Fractional resurfacing and Fractional laser treatment is used to tackle a variety of skin issues. In the case of acne scars, the Fraxel laser treatment is used to stimulate new collagen growth in the skin and drastically improve the appearance of “ice pick” scars, “boxcar” scars, and “hypertrophic” scars. Each of these can vary in size and appearance, but they do not stand a chance against the incredible power behind this Laser Acne Removal Treatment.

The Fraxel laser is the first non-ablative laser of its kind that uses a wavelength of 1550 to stimulate new collagen production. It penetrates deep within each pore to rebuild your skin from within. When you come in for your treatment, a numbing cream is typically applied prior to the procedure. You may experience minimal discomfort, but the treatment is not painful whatsoever. After just about 20 minutes, you will see firsthand results that you never believed were possible.

Aside from acne scar removal, Fraxel laser is also used to treat other imperfections of the skin. Some of these areas include:

  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Brown spots
  • Skin resurfacing
