Any treatment should be approached with realistic expectations. Laser treatment will not completely remove the acne scars. The scars will be significantly less noticeable in the best-case scenario, but in most cases acne scars do not go away completely.
For a few weeks after the treatment, one has to be extra careful regarding the skin’s maintenance because the skin will be more prone to UV damage, so using sunscreen before leaving the house is essential. For the next 6 to 8 weeks, avoid going out too frequently in the sun as that will cause tanning. To help maximize the effects of the treatment, the doctor might suggest some additional skin care products, such as using a specific toner or moisturizer that will help make the skin more radiant.
To avoid any infection, one needs to keep the treated area clean. The skin might turn red for a few days after the treatment. One may also need to refrain from wearing cosmetics for a week or more, depending on the severity of the issues.
The treatment's results will not be apparent right away. But one will surely observe how effectively the treatment worked to decrease the look of acne scars in 7 to 10 days. The effects of acne scar treatment are long-lasting.
