Acne scars and other scars on the body are irritating and are not something you have to live with for the rest of your life. AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) laser is the next generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser technology that improves the texture, tone, and appearance of skin with minimal downtime. This laser treatment is specifically designed to dramatically improve many problem skin areas, including reducing the aesthetic imperfections of acne scarring or of almost any other scar on the skin. By penetrating deeply and raising the dermal temperature, the AFT-IPL laser targets the surface of the skin where prior acne has made the surface uneven. The key advantages for our patients are that the treatments are quick with little to no downtime and the results are wonderfully effective!

*For patients who have deeply scarred skin as a result of acne, the iPixel Erbium laser or the CO2 laser are also excellent options. During your free consultation at Dr. Torgerson’s Facial Cosmetic Surgery clinic, all of the options can be discussed, and you can learn about which one would best address your areas of concern. The current ablative and non-ablative laser treatments and technology at our Toronto Laser Clinic have excellent safety records and are performed only by a registered nurse under the watchful care of Dr. Cory Torgerson or by Dr. Torgerson himself.*

Who is a good candidate for Laser Acne Scar Treatment?

#fancy-title-59c3160680e10 a{ color: #ffffff; }

For patients who no longer have active acne, laser scar treatments are an excellent option. By using a highly effective laser, the appearance of acne scars can be diminished and smooth skin texture regenerated. Dr. Torgerson recommends that patients who have used the drug, Accutane, should wait 6 months after discontinuing its use before scheduling a laser acne scar removal treatment. Accutane has been known to cause scarring and interfere with laser treatments, and because our laser clinic desires that each patient would achieve the top results possible, this is what we recommend to former Accutane users. If proper precautions are taken and the laser treatment is performed at a reputable laser clinic by an expert, the side effects and risks associated with the acne scar procedure are minimized and rare.

What can you expect during an Acne Scar Laser treatment?

#fancy-title-59c3160681b63 a{ color: #ffffff; }

After a free consultation, patients can proceed with booking a laser treatment date. Our Toronto clinic will provide simple and easy pre-treatment instructions to follow prior to the laser session. On the day of the treatment, patients will be given a topical pain-killer and the option of freezing to ensure comfort and ease of treatment. Most patients find the procedure absolutely tolerable and find they can resume their regular activities immediately following the treatment. Following the acne laser scar removal, skin will take about 3 to 5 days to rejuvenate and resurface. Once the acne scars are removed, they will not return. However, if active acne begins again, there is also the possibility of new acne scars forming, so further laser treatment may be necessary.

Things you should know if you’re considering Acne Scar Treatment

#fancy-title-59c316068a8a8 a{ color: #333333; }

1) What acne scar treatments are most effective? The main rule of thumb is that the deeper the problem, the deeper the treatment needed. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can help superficial light scarring, but the deeper scars need a more aggressive approach in order to be successfully treated and removed. In our Toronto Facial Cosmetic Clinic, we recommend the use of the CO2 laser for the best resurfacing results.

2) *Can I proceed with laser acne scar treatments if I am in the middle of a breakout? It is best practice to wait until any outbreaks or active acne have been managed and stopped before proceeding with acne scar treatment. The reason is that if you have active acne, the possibility of further scarring is present and any treatments would be futile. Therefore, treatment of the underlying problem is a must, and from there, attention can be turned towards erasing those marks on the face.*

3) *Will one laser treatment effectively remove all acne scars? Patience is key in regards to acne scars. Although the best treatment (CO2 laser) is extremely effective, there may be a few scars, uneven skin contouring, or red/brown discolouration left over after your first laser treatment that will need additional procedures in order to achieve the desired result. It may be a long road, but the end result will be absolutely worth it.*

4) *Can a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM be used as an acne scar treatment? Yes. JUVÉDERM and other dermal fillers can be used as part of a treatment approach to deep scars to help even out the skin surface. When injected by an experienced injector, the treatment can be quite effective and less expensive than laser treatments. The key is for the injector not to over-correct and cause a bump, but to endeavour to raise up and smooth out the appearance of the scar and the skin with a hyaluronic acid filler. However, unlike a C02 laser treatment, injectable filler is not temporary, so the results would need to be maintained over time.*
