Acne scars and marks
Scars are often a painful reminder of a past traumatic experience. Acne scars are no different. If you previously suffered from moderate to severe acne, you may have the scars or mark to show for it. Dealing with acne, in general, can be really frustrating; it affects your self-esteem and impacts how you interact with the world. For many patients, solving the issue of persistent acne is only part of the struggle. Next comes the concern of covering, treating and trying to reduce the appearance of the post-acne marks that are left behind.
Skin texture damage
A common concern when it comes to acne scars is that they can completely change the texture of the skin. For patients who have dealt with years of persistent acne, the skin may now appear less smooth. This is because long-term, severe acne can end up breaking down collagen— this is the compound responsible for plump, smooth-looking skin.
Red acne scars
Pink or red acne scars are found on lighter skin tones and can sometimes look like acne, even after the inflammation has healed. These spots are treated with one of our laser resurfacing technologies.* For milder cases, oftentimes a chemical peel can greatly reduce these marks.*
Brown acne scars
Brown acne scars can show up in individuals with tan to darker skin tones. These post-acne marks can also be treated with our various laser technologies, including our CO2, Fraxel or ResurFX devices.*
Surgical scars, whether from surgical acne removal or from any other medical procedure are often deeper and more difficult to address. However, with skin resurfacing treatments the body’s own collagen production is stimulated to significantly diminish any scars and imperfections.*
