Acne is at best unsightly and at worst can be a painful and bacteria-filled experience. Even when an outbreak finally clears up, it can leave behind mementos in the form of acne scars. For some, acne scars will clear and fade on their own. For others, they remain either as a lingering reminder of adolescence or a souvenir from a more recent occurrence.
Difference Between Acne and Normal Scars
When the skin is injured, collagen is produced to create new skin. The collagen fibers in a normal scar, however, cross links together as opposed to the way it weaves in the rest of the skin. This is why scars are visually pronounced—the skin is made of the same material, it’s just been arranged differently. Scar tissue is not an identical replacement in terms of function as well as appearance. Sweat glands and hair follicles do not regrow on scars and the tissue is not as strong overall.
In acne scars, the bacteria within the pimple and the inflammation from your body have damaged or eroded some of the surrounding tissue. The results are lines, pits, and creases from this partial damage. The good news is that acne scars, not being as severe as those from burns or cuts, are also easier to eliminate. As one of the top providers of acne scar removal services in the city, the Anti Aging Toronto Clinic is perfectly poised to help return your skin to an unblemished state.
The Intersection of Science and Style
Our Specta Peel dual-action laser is the latest development in skin care technology. It is virtually painless, reduces scarring, stimulates cell regeneration, eases inflammation, and can even promote the growth of new skin.
These effects are possible because the Spectra Peel is non-ablative. This means that, rather than burning away a layer of your skin, the Spectra Peel stimulates the body and provokes collagen and blood vessel production. It essentially pokes your sleeping healing factors and reminds them that the job isn’t finished. As the collagen fills out the site of the scar, the marks will fade and new skin will be formed to smooth over the area. As an added bonus, the resulting skin is fresh and strong so it can resist any future acne scars much more easily.
The Anti Aging Toronto Clinic prides itself on being a pioneer in the latest clinical methods and technology for treating many forms of skin ailments. Our Spectra Peel laser is just one tool in our arsenal dedicated to helping you get the clear, beautiful skin you deserve. You can find more information about our acne scar treatments here.
