Acne Scar Treatments

acne scar treatments

Just like other conditions causing skin scarring, acne scars surface when the skin tissue gets damaged. Cysts, nodules, and inflamed pimples can leave permanent scars on the skin even after healing.  These types of scarring can be, post inflammatory pigmentation, and pitted scars (atrophic).  There are a number of acne scar treatments available from peels to Exceed Medical Micro Needling and Dermapen.  Skin Needling causes a controlled micro trauma in the skin which creates the production of new healthy collagen which will eventually help to fill and reduce the indented scars.

The use of an effective at home routine is essential to increase your chances of achieving marked improvements. Depending on the type and severity of the acne scar, usually a course of 6 – 8 treatments is recommended. These can be alternated with deeper peels for skin resurfacing.

After a breakout you can experience either a red mark where the blemish was or a brown pigmented lesion which usually lasts a long time.  LED light therapy combined with Lactic Acid Peels is fantastic for the red marks left over as it is very anti-inflammatory, healing and stimulates collagen.

For the brown marks, we recommend either some pigment peels, shallow micro needling to break up the pigment or a combination of both. Topical Skincare is a must to protect the skin and reduce re occurance.
