Laser treatment for acne scarring aims to minimize the scars and prevents the growth of acne on the skin. It has been observed that almost 90% of people with acne do have some degree of acne scarring.
How does laser treatment work?
Laser acne scarring treatment in Melbourne is the advanced and most effective method of treatment for acne scars and other skin issues. The laser treatment for acne scarring in melbourne involves focusing high energy light beams in targeted areas on the top layer of the skin.
The high heat from the light beams causes minute wounds on the acne scars. This breaks the scar tissues and facilitates the growth of new collagen and elastin: the protein rich building blocks of the skin tissue.
New healthier skin tissues grow from the wounds as a natural process of healing of the body. These new skin cells and tissues replace the scar tissues, resulting in a smoother skin tone and texture.
With successive treatments the acne scars disappear and fresh healthy skin takes its place, and our skin looks smoother, radiant and youthful again.
The laser treatments greatly reduce the appearance of scars and minimizes the pain due to acne scarring.
If your facial skin has active acne, very wrinkles or dark skin tone, then, laser treatments are the best way to get rid of these skin concerns and achieve a superior skin appearance. The certified dermatologist will conduct a thorough examination of your skin and then suggest the right laser treatment for your skin.

The two most advanced laser treatments for acne scars are:
- Fraxel Laser Treatment
- CO2 Laser Treatment
Here are the top benefits of laser treatment for acne scars.
Advantages of laser treatment for acne scar
Resolves pitting and deep scarring
The Fraxel laser treatment doesn’t just heal shallow and superficial scars, it can effectively treat even the deep indentations as well. This treatment triggers collagen regeneration that tightens the skin and provides a taut and firmer skin appearance.
More comfortable than other harsher non-ablative methods
The traditional treatment methods apply ablative energy blasts that can flake, irritate or cause redness to sensitive skin. The Fraxel laser treatment is non-ablative, therefore, it is much gentle on the skin with effective healing and less downtime.
Affects only the targeted area of the skin
As the name fractional laser suggests, this laser treatment only impacts or affects the troubled skin tissues in the acne scars and leaves the healthier tissues as it is. This makes the treatment more effective with better training. This results in a less intense healing process that greatly decreases downtime.
Can be used on all skin types
Regardless of your skin type or skin tone, Fraxel laser treatments are safe (with a fully acknowledged risk profile) and effective on almost all skin types. Moreover, young teenagers, as well as people over 50 years old, can undergo laser treatment for acne scars.
Best suited for all types of scars
Acne scars can be of two types: hypertrophic or raised above the skin, and, atrophic or depressions in the skin. The CO2 laser treatment works for both types of scars.
