Portland residents seek before and after results for laser acne scar treatment

The disappointments and frustrations of acne can follow you well into adulthood. If you live near Portland, you no longer have to suffer the woes of acne. Whether you currently experience acne or have the scars to prove it, Dr. Adam Maddox and the team at Thrive offer treatments to smooth the skin providing enhanced before and after results. Patients with acne scar benefit from advanced, effective laser therapies.

Scar formation

When pimples burst within the skin, bacteria and dead skin cells spread creating bigger lesions. Your body tries to correct the damage by creating new collagen. However, the texture of the skin may change during the process leading to scars.

Treating your scars

Lasers are increasingly used in medical and cosmetic procedures for simple reasons. They are precise, efficient, and effective. With advancements in technology, we now have multiple procedural options. Laser therapy helps improve the discoloration of scars. It also stimulates new collagen growth which alters the texture to fill the pockmark or groove of the scar.

At Thrive, we utilize the following laser treatments to improve the condition of skin marred by acne scars:

  • Laser Genesis – This non-ablative laser removes the redness from the scars and stimulates collagen production to improve the texture.
  • CO2 Laser resurfacing – This laser removes layers of the skin with minimal heat damage to vaporize damaged skin cells. It resurfaces and rejuvenates the entire layer of the skin and stimulates new growth.
  • RevLite Q Switch 1064 – Non-ablative skin resurfacing helps reduce the appearance of scars effectively and efficiently.

For deeper ice pick scars, dermal fillers may also be used to fill in the groove left by the scar. The chosen method depends upon the patient and the severity of the scarring. A combination of treatments may be used to get optimal results. The therapies used can substantially minimize the appearance of acne scars by improving the texture and quality of the skin. Your skin after treatment is substantially improved.
