Growing Preference for Micro needling and Ablative Lasers

The ablative lasers are considered as the gold standard for treating acne scars, patients have witnessed a 75% improvement in atrophic acne scars at 18 months after this high energy carbon dioxide laser treatment.

The technique when used on dark skinned people showed good to excellent results in 74%, however hyper pigmentation was witnessed among 29% of patients. Due to its long time recovery process and various side effects, the ablative lasers have become less popular.  

Of late, microneedling is gaining momentum as they provide the best cosmetic outcomes. Due to its collagen inducing effect, the encouraging results prove that microneedling is an effective and inexpensive method for dealing with boxcar scars.

Emerging Technologies May Help Boost the Boxcar Scars Market

Researchers and scientists are always on the motion of developing and introducing new and more effective treatments for replacing the traditional therapies. For instance, a latest technology for the treatment of scarring is laser speckle contrast imaging (LSCI). LSCI helps in detecting the backscatter which eventually detects the blood flow by illuminating the tissue with its coherent laser light.

The technique is relevant for scarring because the healing process of scarring requires adequate tissue perfusion. LSCI can also be used to treat patients with burn wounds as it detects the severity of partial thickness in wounds.

Complications in Laser Therapy

Side effects due to laser therapy such as burns, dyspigmentation and infection may happen after the laser treatment. Laser treatment has a risk of overheating the tissue through excessive heat generation or by a failure of the cooling techniques. The risk of burns is higher for lasers that use a continuous beam.

Risk of dyspigmentation is higher in dark skinned or tan individuals. Due to such side effects, the treatment by laser may go back scale. However, latest innovations in the sector may help in mitigating the issue.
