Acne scars are nothing to be ashamed of, but they do tend to negatively impact one’s confidence and self-esteem. That’s why Harmony MedSpa provides effective acne laser treatment for those in Oshawa and the Durham region. Operated by our highly qualified laser specialists, it helps effectively remove acne scars and prevent them from coming back.

What Is Laser Acne Treatment?

Laser acne treatment uses concentrated laser light to treat acne. It works by focusing on the sebaceous glands, which produce oil that clogs pores and contributes to breakouts. 

At Harmony MedSpa, we use the fractional laser, CO2 laser, and PicoSure laser for laser acne scar removal.

The fractional laser is used for specific areas of the skin, while a CO2 laser acne treatment is best for severe acne scars. The PicoSure laser, on the other hand, is known for its precise laser treatment for acne.

A Brief Overview of Acne

Acne is a common skin condition caused by various factors, such as excessive oil production, dead skin cells, bacteria, hormones, and even genetics. Acne scars form when acne penetrates deep into the skin, damaging collagen and tissue and resulting in scar formation.

Types of Acne Scarring 

  • Atrophic scars – Form depression on the skin
    • Ice pick scars – Small but deep scars
    • Boxcar scars – Round depressions on the skin
    • Rolling scars – Wide and shallow scars, causing a wavy appearance
  • Hypertrophic scars – Raised scars 
  • Keloid scars – Thickened skin of a raised scar 

Laser Treatment for Acne & Acne Scars

At Harmony MedSpa, we’re all about personalized skin care procedures. That’s why we have a range of effective laser treatments we can use to treat acne and acne scars. 

Once we determine which laser acne treatment suits your condition, we combine it with other procedures for the best results. 

PicoSure Laser Treatment 

PicoSure laser is an advanced skin rejuvenation technology. It is known to use precise and effective ultra-short pulses of energy to target acne scars, wrinkles, rough skin texture, and pigmentation issues like sunspots.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing 

We also use a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment—an ablative laser resurfacing procedure for acne scars. By targeting only a fraction of the skin’s surface, this advanced laser treatment ensures precise and efficient removal of acne scars, leading to faster healing and noticeable results.

Erbium Laser Resurfacing 

This fractional laser resurfacing treatment uses an erbium-doped laser to improve skin texture, treat sun damage, minimize acne scars, and stimulate collagen production. It’s another ablative laser resurfacing treatment recommended for superficial and moderately deep skin issues.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment 

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment, also known as photorejuvenation, uses broad-spectrum light pulses to target acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation. This ablative laser procedure is advised for mild and moderate acne.

Back Acne Laser Treatment

Back acne, also known as bacne, is challenging to treat because of its large surface area. With laser technology, however, bacne and bacne scars treatment is easier and possible.

Bacne laser treatment works by targeting sebaceous glands and killing acne-causing bacteria on the skin’s surface and within the pores.

Non-Invasive Acne Scar Treatment Alternatives

Aside from using laser for acne scars, Harmony MedSpa also recommends combining non-invasive acne scar treatments for optimal results.

Chemical Peel 

A chemical peel for acne uses specialized solutions to exfoliate the skin. Salicylic acid peels, in particular, work by unclogging your pores, reducing skin inflammation, and promoting clearer skin.

Microdermabrasion 

Another noninvasive exfoliating procedure, microdermabrasion for acne works by gently removing the outer layer of dead skin cells. This treatment unclogs pores and reduces oiliness; however, it is often used with other acne scar removal treatments.

Microneedling 

You can also have microneedling for your acne scars. It is a minimally invasive procedure, using fine needles to create tiny punctures on your skin. It promotes skin regeneration, reducing the appearance of acne scars.
