After an acne breakout, the body’s natural healing processes are triggered to replace the damaged skin that has been destroyed. Acne scars occur when the body produces too much or too little tissue. When too little tissue is created, atrophic or depressed scars form, and when too much tissue is created, hypertrophic or raised scars form. Acne rooted deeper in the skin is more likely to cause scarring, as deep acne often disrupts more skin tissue and takes longer to heal. Sometimes, dark spots or hyperpigmentation can form after a breakout. This occurs when the new, healed skin changes color, tone, or texture. Damaged blood vessels can also contribute to the development of these marks. Popping pimples or picking at scabs also increase the likelihood of scarring.
Our team is highly trained in recognizing the causes and types of acne scars. We are experienced in successfully treating a wide variety of acne scars using effective combinations of treatments.
A powerful treatment for deep-rooted scars, RF Microneedling is an effective treatment for improving the appearance of acne scars. Safe radio-frequency energy is delivered below the surface of the skin using gold-plated needles, breaking up scar tissue, stimulating the production of collagen, and refining skin texture.
A proven treatment with powerful results, laser resurfacing targets superficial scars of various types. Laser energy is directed into the skin using one of our advanced laser technologies, carefully selected by our team based on your overall treatment plan, scars, lifestyle, and goals. The laser vaporizes damaged skin cells, triggering the formation of a fresh layer of skin.
Highly effective on scars with textural concerns and pigmentation, chemical peels target the upper layers of skin. Using proprietary blends of proven ingredients, the peels initiate the process of rapid skin cell turnover. The top layer of damaged skin peels off, revealing a new, healthy surface with less scarring.
A quick treatment that yields immediate results, cosmetic fillers are used to replace volume in atrophic or depressed (indented) scars. Filler is precisely injected into the indentations, plumping the skin and minimizing the appearance of certain types of atrophic scars. Results are long-lasting.
