The pursuit of perfection is embedded in human nature, which is why unattractive acne scars are often the cause of dissatisfaction with one’s appearance and lack of self-esteem. Postacne scars are a common problem, with many patients looking for an effective and reliable solution. Atrophic acne scars are the most common ones, with hypertrophic ones much rarer. One of the most effective procedures for removing acne scars is performed using the non-ablative Er: Glass (1540 nm) laser with integrated cooling and vacuum, part of Alma Lasers’ ultramodern Harmony XL Pro platform. The Er: Glass laser is based on the theory of fractional photothermolysis and non-ablative action (the therapeutic effect is not achieved by breaking the skin), which guarantees patients can return to their normal daily life immediately after the procedure.

During treatment, the laser beam penetrates deep into the scar, causing thermal damage and creating microcolumns of coagulated connective tissue. This triggers a biological response that stimulates the production of new collagen, with the disorganised connective tissue gradually replaced by a healthy one.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types, has no side effects and achieves complete elimination or significant improvement in the appearance of acne scars that lasts in the long term.
