How do Light-Based and Laser Treatments Work to Reduce Scars?
- Scarring is the process by which the body heals wounds. Damage to the deep layer of skin produces a scar which appears as a reddish, uneven mark.
- Acne scars often occur due to inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores bloated with too much oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. As a result, the affected pore swells and thus causes a break in the follicle wall.
