Acne Scars-Smooth and Reduce

What is it?

Acne scars can be disfiguring and socially distressing when widespread on the face. An adult with ice-pick scars is the result of aggressive acne that was not adequately treated or prevented. Once acne scars have set in, the surface of the skin needs to be aggressively treated.

There are three main categories of Acne Scars/Spots:

  1. Depressed Acne Scars
    Rolling acne scars – a wavy texture in the skin, box car acne scars – appearance of large pores, Ice pick acne scars – deep pits with narrow openings.
  2. Raised Acne Scars
    Keloids – a type of raised scar that grows over and around the acne lesion often becoming quite large, thick, and rubbery hypertrophic scar – a type of raised scar that only grows over the acne lesion.
  3. Skin Color Changes – Spots
    The presence of colored spots where an acne lesion once was, commonly appearing in shades of pink, red, or purple.

At Anti-Aging, we treat acne scars with Fraxel Re:Store Laser and Venus Viva.

Fraxel Laser sends thousands of microscopic wounds into the skin to force the body’s own collagen to heal those wounds resulting in a smoother complexion. There is a week of social downtime to deal with swelling and redness and medication to manage discomfort is given and needed only during the treatment.
