Have you ever wondered about whether or not Skin Resurfacing can help you get rid of your acne scars and how it really works?
Skin Resurfacing can help you achieve the smooth texture that you have always wanted by helping your body to build its’ own collagen. This quick process gives you back the smooth appearance you had before the cystic acne you suffered from came into your life.
We know you are wondering how a treatment like Skin Resurfacing can benefit you, so let’s go over some of them:
Many people want to know, “How long does a Skin Resurfacing treatment take?”
The great thing about this treatment is that it takes no more than 30 minutes of your time, and they are done once every 6 weeks. From a time investment, it is actually very little of your time considering the results that you get from a treatment like this.
What about the discomfort? Does Skin Resurfacing cause pain or discomfort and what are the side effects?
We know that the idea of something like skin resurfacing sounds incredibly painful, but it couldn’t be farther from the truth! Yes, there is a slight discomfort associated, but most people describe only a slight pinch or rubberband snap type of feeling. The downtime associated with skin resurfacing is minimal at only 1-5 days. No, you will not need to stay at home and shield your face from the outside world!
Has your acne scarring kept you from social activities or made you feel like you need to wear layers of makeup to cover it up?
For many people the effects of cystic acne and the scars that it leaves can last for a lifetime. People will have reduced self-esteem, avoid social events, or feel the need to cover up their faces with heavy layers of makeup for even something as simple as a trip to the grocery store. Skin resurfacing treatments can help to smooth out the appearance of your acne scars, permanently. Smoother skin also means less of a need for heavy makeup, and the freedom for you to show your true self!
Is something like Skin Resurfacing permanent and will it be successful for me?
If you have a loss of collagen due to acne scars, then yes, something like skin resurfacing may be helpful for you. Skin resurfacing is successful for most people with multiple treatments. Remember, there is no quick fix (aside from very expensive and very painful ablative skin treatments), and that these treatment results are progressive and take time. We can’t predict exactly how many treatments each person will need.
