Below are two permanent methods for removing acne scars:
Laser resurfacing: This treatment option is used to burn off the top layer of the skin. By getting rid of the topmost skin layer, the underlying layers begin the replacement process by producing collagen to replace the top layer; this translates to a healthier looking new skin.
Fractional Laser Therapy: This treatment method is often recommended for patients with protruding or bumpy scars. It involves the use of a laser to penetrate deep into the skin without causing harm to the topmost layer. This treatment helps to burn away the underlying skin layers and smoothens out the scarred area, thus giving the skin a more even look.
A number of individual factors can determine the total cost of a laser removal process, and can be expensive especially when on you are on a tight budget. Factors like;
- Hospital charge for the treatment
- Doctors bill
- Cost per session etc
