Acne Scars Treatments in Our New Office

We see man types of acne scars and it is critical to identify the correct treatment for acne scars. Step one, figure out what type of acne scars is present on the skin. There are two types of acne scars. Pitted acne scars- where there has been a loss of tissue volume and the skin clearly appears as though there is an indentation. The acne scar treatment options we offer at the Cosmetic Dermatology Center for pitted acne scars include laser treatments to reduce the appearance of the acne scars. In addition, we use a combination of chemical peels, fillers, and PRP to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

The second type, post-inflammatory acne scars, the skin has red spots or brown spots left on the skin after active acne lesions disappear. Lasers, chemical peels, and products from our Schön skincare line can improve the overall redness of the lesions.

Best Laser Treatments for Acne Scars

The gold standard treatment for acne scars is laser rejuvenation therapy using the fractional CO2 laser. The fractional CO2 laser targets the deep dermal areas of the skin to stimulate collagen renewal; which results in filling depressed acne scars on the face or body. We are proud to offer the most advanced lasers at Dr. Hayre’s Dermatology Practice:  Pixel CO2.

We target the red and brown spots that remain after acne lesions resolve, we also use intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, which destroy the pigmented red and brown skin cells on the skin, leaving a more uniform and even-toned complexion.

The Fastest and Best Fix for Acne Scars

At the Cosmetic Dermatology Center, we offer soft tissue dermal fillers to naturally plump up areas of scarring. While dermal fillers offer a near-term immediate fix for some deep pitted acne scars, they are a great option for those who want to have their scars fixed in a timely manner. Many clients for example, a bride whom chooses to have dermal fillers done on their acne scars prior to their weddings. In addition, a combination of microderm abrasion and micro-needling help achieve the optimal results in a short period of time.
