Acne Scars

The best approach to acne scars is prevention whenever possible. You should seek treatment for your acne as soon as it appears in order to prevent it from getting worse and potentially leaving you with scars. The acne has to be under control before your scars can be treated, so early intervention is the absolute best acne treatment available.

Great news! Most of the time skin discoloration eventually fades and won’t require treatment. Acne scars that actually change the volume or texture of the skin unfortunately will not fade with time, however, there are treatments available such as lasers, peels, skincare, and possibly some dermal fillers.

Acne scars and blemishes are repairable. You just need the right acne scar treatments. We’ll work together with you, starting first with development of a step-by-step treatment.


Acne Scars

Acne scars seem like double punishment: first you had the wonderful experience of having acne and now you are blessed with the scars as a reminder. On top of that, it can be difficult to disguise some acne scarring no matter how hard you try. If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of your scars, we would love to help you minimize them.


Acne Scar Treatments

If you struggle with deep acne scars and pockmarks, you’ve probably tried every topical treatment, serum, and DIY mask to attempt to reduce the appearance of your acne scars. If you’ve looked into professional treatments by dermatologists or licensed aestheticians, you’ve most likely come across microneedling. You’ve seen the before-and-after pictures, but you might still be wondering if microneedling really helps acne scars?

Yes, microneedling really helps acne scars. The process promotes the growth of new collagen in your skin, encouraging your skin to heal itself, reducing the appearance of ice pick, boxcar, and rolling acne scars.

Microneedling tools are comprised of small (micro) needles that gently puncture the skin and create small wounds. These wounds are nearly imperceptible, but your skin recognizes that it needs to heal itself so it produces more collagen. This increase in collagen production helps smooth out scars as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
