Treatments to Help Reduce Acne Scars
The best treatments to reduce acne scars involve resurfacing. Such treatments include lasers, peels, and microneedling, combined with at-home skin care products for brightening and exfoliation.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Lasers like Fraxel target scar tissue and darkened patches. The laser light damages the tissue, breaking apart the scars and stimulating faster skin cell turnover.
At Ultra Smooth Skin, we offer a variety of laser treatments, including Fraxel and Clear+Brilliant. Both address uneven skin tone and texture. While both are gentle, Fraxel is more aggressive and addresses more severe scars and pigmentation. Clear+Brilliant is gentler, offering resurfacing results and maintenance following Fraxel.
Microneedling breaks up scar tissue using very fine needles to penetrate the skin at varying depths. Once the skin is needled, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or topical skin products penetrate deeper to stimulate healing and youthful cell growth. Collagen and elastin growth increase as well, pushing new, healthy skin cells to the surface.
We offer microneedling with and without PRP.
Chemical peels stimulate rapid skin cell turnover, brightening the skin, reducing dullness, and smoothing skin tone and texture. Pigmented acne scars are brightened for more even skin tone.
Our medical spa offers Vitalize and Rejuvenize SkinMedica Peels.
Injectable fillers can be used for depressed acne scars. When injected, they plump and smooth the skin for a more flush surface.
Products to Reduce Acne Scars
Scars and skin discoloration require exfoliating and brightening products to smooth skin texture and tone. Chemical exfoliation stimulates top layer skin cells for rapid turnover. The old cells are gently cleansed away while fresh skin cells emerge. Brightening products work in a similar way and include safe, effective ingredients which improve skin glow.
Skin care products to improve acne scars are best used in conjunction with in-office treatments.
Our practice sells SkinMedica brand products both in-house and online. Products which are great for people with acne scars include Lytera for skin brightening and the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser for chemical exfoliation.
