In acne case, the injury is the result of the body’s inflammatory response to sebum bacteria and dead cells in the plugged sebaceous follicle .

Two types of true scars exist:

  • Raised thickened tissue such as keloids.

The laser light is absorbed by the water in skin cells. The absorption in trun causes the instantaneous vaporization or destruction of the cell. As your physician passes the laser light over your skin, a mere 30 millionths of an inch of tissue is removed at a time. This incredible control allows yourphysician to treat only as deeply as needed, from removing Acne Scars to merely refreshing your overall skin appearance. After the damaged skin is removed, new skin quickly regrows in its place.
