3 Ways to Treat Acne Scarring

Posted on August 7, 2017 by admin

If you have ever had acne, you know how difficult it is not to pick at them. Unfortunately, improperly breaking the skin to remove the acne can cause deep facial scarring. Luckily, there are still a number of ways to improve the appearance of acne scars. We will discuss three procedures that are highly effective in treating acne scarring.

 

Skin Tightening – The Yag laser we use in our practice is a versatile machine that can treat pigmentation problems and tighten the skin for an overall improved appearance. The laser technician will use gentle settings to induce the formation of new collagen. Collagen is a primary contributor to maintaining youthfulness of your face as it gives the skin a plumped appearance and helps maintain its elasticity.

 

Chemical Peel – Chemical peel is a highly customizable procedure that can rejuvenate the skin and treat hyperpigmentation issues caused by acne. It is essential to choose an experienced aesthetic medicine practitioner to perform this procedure as they are responsible for determining the strength of the peel. I recommend starting with lighter peels such as SkinMedica’s Vitalize Peel and work your way up to more powerful Rejuvenize Peel. With this treatment plan patients usually see consistent results with minimal side effects.

 

Laser Skin Resurfacing – There are two types of lasers used for laser skin resurfacing treatments, ablative and non-ablative. Both types of lasers target the dermis layer of the skin to stimulate collagen formation. Ablative lasers destroy the epidermal layer of the skin to reach the dermis. Because of this, treatments with ablative lasers require a lot of downtime.
In our practice we use Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional laser. It is a non-ablative system that uses laser energy to gently treat acne scarring and promote collagen formation.
