Acne Scar Removal

Acne scars can be tough to beat. Most common kinds of acne damage include the damage to the collagen fibers, which may leave light or darkened pigmented areas on the skin, and an increased production of scar tissues. However, a number of treatment options are available that tackle this problem effectively, like, fillers, laser therapy, chemical peels and many others depending on your skin type, kind of damage and other factors.

Acne Scars - Chicago, IL

I suffered from acne scars for a couple of years before I sought treatment. I saw about 3 different plastic surgeons and made little progress on my scarring. My self esteem was shot and I tried to avoid mirrors. Then I met Dr. Anil Shah. During my consultation I was blown away by his knowledge, compassion and dedication. I have been seeing him for over 3 years now ( I started with TCA... READ MORE

DermaPen is Good for Acne Scars - Darwin

DermaPen treatment makes my skin smoother and the healing time is fast. The clinician put some numbing cream on my cheeks 40mins before the treatment. Therefore, it is not hurting at all but you might feel like someone is using the facial cleaning brush and brushing your face. The clinician said that I can put on mineral foundation 2 days later after the treatment. READ MORE

Microdermabrasion: Great for Acne Scars!

Right at the outset, I must state that microdermabrasion is a procedure that needs to be thoroughly and meticulously researched by YOU, before you take that "first step"; make absolutely certain that you are a potential candidate—or you'll end up with an "unhappy face." To begin, I will address the issue of cost; this absolutely depends on where you live. I... READ MORE

Acne Scars - Tucson, AZ

Hi, my name is Cristina. I had very bad acne all over my forehead, temples, and chin. It started around the time I was in 5th grade. I had to grow up with names like “pizza face” because I could not help but pick on my acne and it would leave my face all red and blotchy. It got so bad that I would not leave the house without at least foundation on because I was so self-conscious about peo... READ MORE

Aching with Acne Scars - Manhattan, NY

I have always been bothered by the scars left by teenage acne. I decided to do a TCA peel. It was performed in the doctor's office. As the liquid is being applied, you start to feel the heat. To help alleviate the doctor had fans blowing on my face. This helped tremendously. My face turned first white, then red, and then like a sunburn peeled. To help with the facial stiffness, I used creams.... READ MORE

Active FX for Acne Scars

-I was having rhinoplasty and decided to try to improve my acne scarring, so I can't comment on pain during procedure as I was out. I have had acne since high school, and I am 33- female. I somehow seem to scar from every pimple or scratch, so I was VERY hesitant to have a laser treatment. I had a C02 laser done 10 years ago- when it was like they lasered till they saw bone- and it was the... READ MORE

Pixel and IPL for Acne Scars

I had my fifth pixel and IPL treatment yesterday. I am getting six altogether. The doctor combines the two each time. The total price each time is $750 - 250 for the pixel and 500 for the IPL. I think the pixel would be much more if I didn't get the IPL. Plus, I only get the pixel on my cheeks where the acne scars are, while I get the IPL on my entire face for the red spots from pimples...

Acne Scars Not As Noticeable!

So far I have had one peel and after 5 years of being depressed when I look at my skin I am happy with the results. Its not 100% gone but what do you expect from something that does not contain any acids. I had pin point acne scars and I had the peel done 1 week ago and it did work. Of course I will need to have another but I am happy with the results so far, and yes it does hurt a lot... READ MORE
