Acne light for scars

David Lim Dr Davin S. Lim Consultant Laser Specialist Brisbane Acne Clinic, Westside Dermatology GroupLow level laser treatment in the context of acne light therapy has been documented to help in the early stages of scar remodeling. Low emission laser sources can stimulate collagen and provide a cascade of positive scar effects. Not everyone will benefit from this therapy, as new scars respond much better compared to old ones. This therapy has limited benefit for moderate to severe scarring, and should only be limited to treating early and mild cases.

Patients should be aware that non-medically prescribed light emitting sources do not have the power to deliver treatments into the dermal layers of the skin - the area where scars lie.
