Laser scar removal is used on many types of scarring, but today we share with you its effects and benefits on acne scars because this is a problem that affects the lives and self-esteem of thousands of people.

At puberty, the chances of getting acne are very high due to the shift in hormones. The type of acne you get depends on the scarring left after the acne is treated. Some types of acne do not leave any seriously visible scars while others, especially cystic acne, leaves scars commonly known as ‘rolling scars’.

These types of acne scars normally have a dip, which leaves an uneven skin surface and discolouration at the site of each scar.
