Can pulsed dye laser be used for acne scars?

 

The pulsed dye laser has become one of the most effective lasers for newly formed acne scars that are red and thick.  Unlike other lasers, the pulsed dye laser targets the intrinsic ability of a scar tissue to thicken and regenerate.  Pulsed dye laser is a vascular laser that is used effectively to treat keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, newly formed acne scars and reddened and thickened scars on the skin.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian has been featured on television demonstrating his unique approach to scar revision using pulsed dye laser.  Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes to perform and can dramatically improve scar tissue and vascular proliferation around an inflamed scar.  Newer research has also shown that pulsed dye laser may be an effective alternative for standard acne treatments in patients who have active cystic acnes.  We often combine the pulsed dye laser with skin lightening creams such as Melarase AM and Melarase PM.


Ematrix Treatment: 


Another effective treatment for acne scars uses a technique known as sublation. Syneron Ematrix has developed a novel RF device that can target the dermis and promote collagen to enhance the appearance of acne scars on the face. Patients have had excellent results with the Ematrix system. Most types of acne scars respond well to the Ematrix treatment, with shallower scars requiring less treatments than deeper scars. Atrophic acne scars can be improved with a series of Ematrix sessions. The main benefit of Ematrix is that it requires little to no downtime and can be performed with minimal skin preparation. 

 

Other treatments using pulsed dye laser include keloid scar therapy and hypertrophic scar therapy.  If you are concerned about acne scars, Dr. Karamanoukian can provide you with many options during you consultation, including laser treatment, subcision, and acne surgery.
