Laser Genesis™ Acne Scar Treatment
If you dealt with embarrassing acne in your teenage years, chances are, it left a lasting mark on your complexion. Even if you no longer have acne, you may continue to suffer from acne scars and pock marks that cause your skin to look bumpy and uneven. Genesis™ noninvasive laser technology can be used to fade acne scars and smooth out your skin.
How Does Laser Scar Removal Work?
Laser Genesis™ stimulates the body’s healing processes to replace areas of damage and scar tissues with new skin cells. Acne scars are filled in with new tissues and naturally fade away without harming the surrounding skin. Laser Genesis™ acne scar treatment is safe for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin.
What to Expect During Acne Scar Removal
Typical treatment sessions last about 30 minutes. Depending on the patient’s skin type, three to five sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results. Laser Genesis™ acne scar removal does not usually require anesthetic, but Dr. Onwuka can provide cooling cream. Laser acne scar removaltreatments have few side effects, which often include some temporary redness and swelling. Patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
