Acne can develop at any age, whether as a teenager or an adult. Severe cases of acne can leave unsightly and embarrassing scars. Many adults turn to acne scar removal treatment for fresh and even skin. Several treatment options are available, and all options are safe and effective. Get healthy, even skin again with professional acne scar removal.  

What Are Acne Scars?

Acne impacts the skin, inflaming individual pores. An acne scar can appear after an acne blemish has healed. When an individual pore swells and breaks, a scar is left. While minor tears in the pore walls usually heal quickly, severe inflammation and pore damage can leave an unsightly scar.

There are two types of acne scars. The first is hypertrophic or keloid scarring. These scars appear as raised tissue on the skin, resulting from the body producing an excess of collagen to repair the damage.

The other type of acne scar is atrophic, sometimes called depressed scarring. These scars appear as depressions in the skin that appear as holes. Atrophic scars form when the body loses tissue surrounding the individual pore.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne breakouts cause scars to form. Scarring can develop due to the body trying to heal the acne inflammation. The amount and type of scarring are directly related to how much collagen your body produces.  

When you have a depressed scar, sometimes called “icepick” or “boxcar” scarring, your skin shows an indentation around the pore. These scars occur when the body makes too little collagen to heal the damaged pore.  

If you have a raised scar called a keloid, your body produces too much collagen during the healing process. Usually, raised scarring is more common in people with Asian, Hispanic, or African American heritage.  

Types of Acne Scars

Although a damaged pore causes all acne scars, acne scars can look different. Some of the most common types of acne scars include:

Picocare 450 is revolutionizing the way we approach acne scar treatments with its combination of cutting-edge technology.

How Picocare 450 Laser Works

Picocare 450 laser is a safe and effective treatment to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, enlarged pores or other skin imperfections. It penetrates beyond the surface of the skin allowing for micro-explosions which then produce tiny bubbles that fill with collagen during recovery. This bubble effect provides an elevated effect and is highly efficient at targeting indented acne scars, enlarged pores, and those found around the nose area. 

Picocare 450’s unique feature of creating these bubbles serves to lift and tighten these areas more effectively than traditional dermatological treatments for better results over time.

Picocare 450 is an advanced laser device designed to remove tattoos, pigmentation, acne scars and other skin lesions with improved results compared to nanosecond lasers. Picocare combines high peak power and shorter pulse durations that break down the ink colours and pigments into tiny particles. 

It has greater photomechanical but less photothermal effects than nanosecond lasers, which means fewer treatments are required while reducing the risk of side effects. Picocare 450 provides effective yet safe ablative skin treatments and offers one of the best laser solutions available on the market today.
