Acne Scar Removal

There are a number of dermatological procedures that are quite effective for acne scar removal. These procedures aim to minimize and lighten scars left behind by acne breakouts using tried and tested dermatological tools and technology.

Acne scars affect not just a person’s appearance; they also have a negative effect on that person’s confidence and self esteem. Thanks to medical science and modern technology, dermatologists can now help their patients get their confidence back and give them smoother skin with less noticeable scarring from acne breakouts they’ve had in the past.

Acne Scar Removal Treatment Options

There are several acne scar removal treatment procedures that patients can undergo depending on their preferences and the quantity and severity of the scarring on their faces. Patients can come to our clinic for a consultation session with one of our medical professionals who will recommend the appropriate procedure that will produce the best results based on the patient’s skin type and the severity of the scarring on the patient’s face. Here are some of the treatment options patients with mild to severe acne scars can undergo:

  • Microdermabrasion. These skin resurfacing procedures are done to minimize the appearance of mild acne scars and other facial scarring and blemishes. The procedure is done by removing the topmost layer of the skin using diamond-tip hand pieces or tiny crystals (microdermabrasion).
  • Chemical Peels. This procedure is very effective for minimizing and lightening shallow, pigmented acne scars. This is done by applying a special chemical on the skin to peel off the skin’s top layer, making it smoother and more even toned.
  • Retinoic Acid Treatment. Those who suffer from keloidal acne scars can benefit from this particular treatment. The acid solution is applied directly on the scar to minimize its appearance.
  • Laser Resurfacing Treatment. This is a more appropriate skin resurfacing treatment for people with more severe cases of acne scarring. By using lasers to penetrate deep into the skin and burn off the top layers of the skin (Profractional), it not only treats acne scars, but wrinkles and fine lines as well.

Acne Scar Removal Recovery

The recovery time for these dermatological procedures vary depending on the level of invasiveness. Less invasive procedures like collagen injections, dermabrasion and chemical peels have little to no downtime, while the other procedures may take a while to heal.
