How Acne Laser Treatments Can Help You Erase Scars

By Belo Medical Group on October 8, 2018

Yay—you finally got rid of the pimples and breakouts on your skin! While that’s already a huge beauty win, sometimes dealing with the aftermath (like red marks, dark spots, and even pit scars) is equally worse and super frustrating. To help you solve this skin dilemma, we consulted with Dr. March Babaran, medical operations head of Belo Medical Group, who gave us the scoop on how different acne laser treatments can help you target the specific issues that your old pimples left behind.

Acne Scars 101

Before we begin, Dr. March says that it’s important to know that there are actually different types acne scars. “The basic types are the hyperpigmented ones—these are the brown ones. We also have the vascular (or the red ones), and the ice pick scars or boxcar scars.” It’s important for your dermatologist or doctor to determine which type you have in order to give you the best treatment possible. “All of these scar types will need different lasers or treatment modalities to help target them better,” adds Dr. March.

The Laser Lowdown

Light emitting diodes either remove unwanted lesions, target acne-causing bacteria, decrease inflammation, and promote faster skin renewal or formation of collagen.

At Belo, there are several acne laser treatments you can try that will fit your concerns. “Fraxel is a good treatment to lighten the hyperpigmented scars. Revlite and Angel Whitening can help lighten brown scars as well. The red scars will best respond to Vascular Lasers like V-Beam, G-Max and IPL (Intense Pulse Light). For the ice pick scars, you have the Time Capsule and Collagen Induction Therapy,” explains Dr. March. But if you want an overall treatment or have different types of scars on your face, then your best bet would be the Time Capsule treatment since it combines several procedures to help improve your skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity.
