Yes, acne scarring treatment may vary for darker skin tones. Darker skin types are more prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Therefore, we choose treatments carefully to minimise the risk of further pigmentation issues. Consult with one of our clinicians experienced with dark skin types for personalised treatment recommendations.
The timeframe for noticeable results from acne scarring laser treatments can vary depending on the severity of the scarring, the type of laser used, and your individual response. Typically, you may see skin texture and tone improvements within a few weeks to a few months.
However, multiple sessions may be necessary for optimal results, and full improvements may continue to develop over several months as collagen production increases. Your dermal clinician can provide a more accurate estimate based on your specific treatment plan.
The number of acne scarring laser treatment sessions required can vary based on the type and severity of scarring. A series of 3 to 6 sessions is typically recommended, spaced several weeks apart. Your dermal clinician will assess your specific case and determine the appropriate treatment plan to achieve the best results.
After acne scarring treatment, following post-care instructions provided by your dermal clinician is essential. Common recommendations include protecting your skin from sun exposure, using recommended skincare products, avoiding picking at scabs or scarring, and attending follow-up appointments as advised.
Identifying the type of acne scarring you have involves closely examining your skin. Common types include boxcar scars, resembling wide, shallow depressions; ice pick scars, narrow, deep pits; and rolling scars, which have a wavy appearance. Deeper scars indicate more severe scarring. Consulting a dermal clinician is essential for a professional assessment and tailored treatment plan to address depressed acne scars effectively.
