Correcting Acne With Laser Skin Resurfacing

Correcting Acne With Laser Skin Resurfacing

Acne is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages. An individual’s unique inflammation response determines how likely the person is to develop scars after a blemish clears. People with “single inflammatory responses” to skin trauma tend not to scar, while people with “secondary inflammatory responses” tend to scar easily after bouts of acne. This inflammation response is linked to genetics, so scarring may be completely out of your control, no matter what preventative measures you take.

Although it may be impossible to entirely prevent acne scarring, there are methods you can take to improve the appearance of your skin, such as laser skin resurfacing.

Common Causes of Acne Scarring

Even when acne clears, people still may notice scars left behind. Common causes of acne scarring include:

  • Inflammatory acne: swollen, reddish and painful acne that penetrates deep into skin
  • Untreated acne
  • Picking or scratching
  • Genetics

Fortunately, there are corrective treatments that minimize the appearance of acne scars. The experts at Bergman Folkers understand that your skin is important, and we offer innovative, non-invasive laser skin resurfacing treatments to help correct any acne scarring you’ve retained.
