Acne scars can be a persistent reminder of past skin struggles, affecting not only our physical appearance but also our self-confidence.

What causes acne scars?

Before exploring the benefits of plasma skin resurfacing for reducing acne scarring, it's helpful to understand the nature of acne scars themselves. Acne scars generally result from the body's natural healing process after severe acne lesions, and the nature and severity of the scars can be influenced or even worsened by sun exposure, picking at blemishes, and other behaviors. Acne scars can develop in various forms, including:

  • Atrophic scars
  • Hypertrophic scars
  • Keloids

Each type presents unique challenges, making personalized treatment essential for optimal results. For some types of acne scarring, Opus Plasma skin resurfacing is considered highly effective at diminishing the appearance of the scars and creating a smoother, more even skin tone and texture.

How does plasma skin resurfacing work for acne scars?

Opus Plasma skin resurfacing is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes advanced technology to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. This treatment is particularly effective for addressing acne scars, fine lines, and uneven skin texture. The procedure involves the use of a specialized device that delivers controlled plasma energy to the skin's surface, stimulating collagen production, triggering the body’s natural healing processes, and promoting skin regeneration.

What are the benefits of acne scar treatment with Opus?

Some of the primary benefits of undergoing plasma skin resurfacing for acne scarring include:

  • Stimulates natural collagen production to smooth out rough, scarred texture
  • Precise technology treats the affected layers of skin without damaging healthy skin cells and tissue
  • Minimal downtime
  • Versatile treatment is appropriate for many types of scarring and skin irregularities
  • Can also improve the appearance of discoloration, sun damage, enlarged pores, lines, and wrinkles
