What Are Acne Scars?

However, the excessive pressure and pain on the skin can cause acne to scar during the healing process, and these visible scars can range from small and barely visible to large, crater-like depressions, or “icepick scars” that are virtually impossible to conceal. Breakouts and scarring have a negative impact on your feelings of self-confidence. Dr. Jen Armstrong has treatment options available to improve the smoothness and reduce the appearance of visible acne scars, uneven skin texture, and redness.

Acne Scar Treatment Options

Skin Resurfacing

A variety of procedures can be used to resurface the skin, including laser treatments, microdermabrasion, microdermabrasion, or chemical peels. Skin resurfacing works by removing layers of skin to encourage the growth of new skin cells and collagen to fill in areas of scarring.

Microneedling

Another form of resurfacing, microneedling uses a device with a grouping of tiny needles that penetrate the skin and cause the body’s natural healing process to produce collagen and elastin. The procedure is effective in treating depressed scars.

Fillers

Collagen or other materials can be used to fill in depressed acne scars. Some will last a few months while other dermal fillers are more permanent.

Laser Therapy

Specially-designed lasers can flatten raised acne scars, diminish abnormal colors, and reduce pain.

Acne Scar Surgery

Surgical options are available for both depressed and raised acne scars. The ultimate goal is to create a less obvious scar that will diminish with time.

Our skilled dermatologists will help you determine which procedure is right for you and your symptoms, and create a treatment plan to help you avoid future scarring.

Candidates for Acne Scar Treatment

Acne scars can become more defined with age as the collagen fibers in the skin relax. There are two types of acne scars: depressed and raised scars. Depressed are the more common and typically occur on the face, while raised scars often form on the chest and back. There are treatment options for both types of scars, and our dermatologist will recommend one based on the extent of your scarring and your medical history.

You should not seek treatment for acne scars if you are still experiencing breakouts. Continued problems with acne can lead to more scarring and make the treatment less effective. If you still struggle with acne breakouts, we can help you with a treatment regimen to control your acne prior to addressing any remaining scars.

After Acne Scar Treatment

After your procedure is complete, you will receive detailed aftercare instructions. The treatment options have varying recovery times and aftercare steps. Over time your acne scars will diminish or even disappear, and you can enjoy your fresh, smooth, radiant skin. You will also receive skincare tips to decrease the likelihood of continued breakouts and further scarring. Most scar treatments will require minimal downtime and you can usually resume normal activities quickly.
