Laser Lights Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Laser Center in Atlanta, Georgia has medical laser equipment to remove or improve scarring caused by acne, chicken pox and accidents. There are a few methods used to remove scars, each with their own specialty.
Dermabrasion is most useful for scars that are raised above the skin's surface, but is less effective for sunken scars, or scars that dip inwards on the face or body. The same is true for microdermabrasion, though the best choice between the two is ultimately for the patient to decide.
Treatments for acne scars and chicken pox also include Dermabrasion and Microdermabrasion, but have a variety of different treatment options available in addition. Laser therapy, also known as Laser Resurfacing, softens scars by causing the skin to heal in microscopic sections targeted by the laser. While several treatments are needed, the results often exceed expectations. Chemical peels are also an effective way to treat scars caused by acne and otherwise, as it softens and peels the top layer of skin away, you are left with a smoother face with less wrinkles - minimizing the visual effect of the scar.
