Does Acne Scar Removal Hurt?

November 21, 2017

Suffering from teenage acne can be a painful and embarrassing experience. It can leave you with unsightly blemishes and acne scars. Unfortunately, for some people acne can continue into adulthood. Many people affected by adult acne are embarrassed to show their face in public without resorting to using heavy make up. But the good news is that there are great options for acne scar removal in Toronto.

There are three main types of acne scars:

Rolling Scars  – these types of acne scars are deeper skin indentations that usually have slopped and round edges. A cluster of these scars on the skin gives them that rolling appearance and that’s where the name comes from.

Ice Pick Scars – these types of acne scars are also deep but narrower in nature. They usually resemble a big empty pore in the skin.

Box Car Scars – these types of acne scars are deep but with more defined and steep edges.

Is Acne Scar Removal Pain-Free?

Our skin care specialists at IGBeauty ensure that the treatment is as gentle and comfortable as possible. A topical numbing cream is applied during the treatment to minimize any possible discomfort. In addition, the Lumenis® ResurFX™ has a cooling feature which activates with each pulse. Therefore we strongly believe that the Lumenis® ResurFX™ is the ideal solution for acne scar removal in Toronto.

At the most our clients will experience mild stinging sensation when the laser is applied to the skin. Also, depending on the client and the area to be treated, most sessions only last anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes.
