Acne Scarring

What are Acne Scars?

Acne scarring is like a souvenir from the battle with breakouts. When acne lesions penetrate the skin deeply, they can damage the underlying collagen, leaving behind scars. There are different types of acne scars, like ice pick, boxcar, or rolling scars, each with its own charming characteristics.

How can we help improve the appearance of your acne scars?

  • Chemical Peels: Chemical solutions are applied to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This can improve the appearance of certain types of scars.

  • Laser Therapy: High-intensity laser resurfacing can stimulate collagen production and improve the skin's texture.

  • Dermal Fillers: For certain types of scars, injecting fillers can elevate the depressed areas, making the skin surface more even.

  • Topical Treatments: Creams, gels, or serums with ingredients like retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), or vitamin C can help improve skin texture and promote collagen production.
