What Are Acne Scars?
Acne scars are reminders of previous breakouts that remain after acne is no longer a daily concern for you. Unfortunately, the scars can be as much or more of a burden than the initial breakout. With breakouts, you expect acne to eventually fade or diminish, but scarring is permanent. There are numerous types of acne scars, but the three most common are:
- Ice pick scars – Deep yet small pits characterize this acne scar in the shape of a V. Ice pick scars are typically the most difficult to treat because they often extend deep into the surface of your skin.
- Boxcar scars – These scars can range from shallow to deep but are distinct in their sharp angles and edges. The shallowest boxcar scars respond quicker and better to most skin resurfacing treatments.
- Rolling scars – The third common type of acne scar is usually wide and shallow, portraying a wavy look. Rolling scars are caused by damage beneath your skin’s surface.
Fortunately, each of these types of acne scar is treatable. Trust our experts to determine the best acne scar and blemish removal approach for your face.
How Do You Treat Acne Scars?
Depending on the nature of your acne scars, there may be one or more treatment approach that will diminish or eliminate your skin blemishes. Uptown Medical Aesthetics has been administering a wide range of skin rejuvenation solutions since 1997, and we have become proficient with all types of acne scar removal. Our expertise can help guide you toward the ideal treatment strategy for your unique circumstances. Before starting any treatment regimen, it is essential to rid your face of acne because new breakouts can result in additional scarring. The different techniques we can use for deep scar acne treatment include:
This approach facilitates the creation of new collagen and elastin through microchannels in the skin to enhance its natural self-repair process. As a result, your acne scars will fade, making way for a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Each procedure will last for roughly an hour. Our team will help you determine how many sessions you will need based on the severity of your acne scars.
Using fractional technology, VIRTUE RF quickly resurfaces your skin to minimize acne scars, reverse signs of aging, and smooth your skin. This FDA-approved technique uses radiofrequency energy to increase collagen production and help develop healthy skin cells. You will notice results within days of your first treatment, though they will be most apparent six to eight weeks after your final treatment.
To deeply exfoliate your epidermis, we suggest dermaplaning. This technique is often used to remove mild acne scarring by using a surgical blade held at a 45-degree angle to produce a smooth, refined appearance. This treatment is only available on your face, but even the most sensitive skin can benefit from it.
Our microdermabrasion strategy involves using a diamond-tipped wand to gently exfoliate the outermost layer of your skin. An accompanying vacuum then removes dead cells, thus refreshing and smoothing your face. Our state-of-the-art equipment ensures pain-free treatment with lasting results.
