Micro Needling to the rescue

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Depending on the orientation of the scar, there are numerous options we provide in clinic. If you find that you are dealing with ice picked scars a wonderful treatment where we have seem fantastic results from is Medical Micro Needling. Safe enough for all skin types, Micro Needling will create tiny, pin point injuries to the skin that will cause the body to repair the damage by creating collagen and elastin at a more rapid rate. Leaving the skin plumper, refreshed and the scars less obvious. There is minimal downtime and can be done at any time of the year.  We also offer Halo, the only hybrid laser on the market. This exciting device utilizes two wavelengths at the same time to help coagulate tissue in the dermis, but will also vaporize tissue on the surface of the skin, leaving a more smoother, brighter and refreshed finish. I find with scars you will need a combinational approach with great, medical grade products and treatments.

My go to device is the Infini for acne scars. After 2-3 treatments, the deeper scars can be filled using Bellafill. Other procedures that might be additive are: TCA Cross, PRP, subcision, and laser resurfacing.

Sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your skin. Living with acne scarring is not something you have to put up with thanks to the advancement of aesthetic lasers that are equipped to treat a wide variety of skin conditions. 

At our clinic we often recommend a series of AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) laser treatments for acne scarring as a starting point, it all depends on the patients current skin condition. AFT is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser technology targets the surface of the skin where prior acne has made the surface uneven and improves the texture, tone, and appearance of skin with minimal downtime.

A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon or a dermatologist would be the first step in treating your scars!

I would highly recommend a high quality medical grade skin care routine that contains ingredients that have been developed to treat acne on the face.

Acne scar treatment is based upon The type of scars. If you could provide A picture, it would be helpful. No one type of treatment is best for every type of scar. Please find an acne scar expert. Good luck .

Acne scars treatment

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thank you for your question. The best treatment options for your scars depends on the type of scarring you have. There are many types of acne scarring - rolling, boxcar scars and ice pick scars. These types are amenable to many different types of treatment, but results vary for each type of scarring. Any of the modalities that injure the skin with subsequent collagen formation such as fractionated laser, dermroller, resurfacing lasers, deep peels, etc. may help your condition. Fillers are a good option, specifically Bellafill®, a permanent filler. Bellafil® is FDA approved in treating acne scars. The right modality for you depends on your skin type, expectations, patience, downtime, and cost. I highly recommend you consult with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to discuss treatment options that best suit your needs. Take care and good luck.
