Since acne and spot pimples are pretty common, it’s likely that one might experience scarring from them. Acne scars form when the underlying skin tissue is damaged. People usually damage this tissue by popping or picking at zits. While acne scars might not be as irritating as acne itself, they can linger on your skin for a long time causing one to feel less confident about their skin. Therefore, it’s important to find the best skin treatments to help get rid of these scars so your face can be clear, glowing, and help you feel like your most confident self! Continue reading for the skin treatments we recommend if you’re looking to get rid of acne scars.
Microneedling is a treatment that works to smooth lines and wrinkles, even skin tone, refine enlarged pores, tighten skin, and of course, fade scars. Microneedling works by using a group of tiny (micro) needles to penetrate the skin. By penetrating the skin with these tiny needles, more collagen is able to be naturally produced in the area. This will help lighten up and remove scars over time.
A skin resurfacing treatment is another awesome treatment to help get rid of acne scars! This treatment helps acne scars because it works to reverse the damage by carefully removing the top layers of the skin. Similar to microneedling, this treatment uses tiny needles as well as radiofrequency and heat to penetrate the skin’s lower layers. As the skin heals from this, its tone and texture will improve along with the appearance of acne scars.
Certain chemical peels are also effective treatments for acne scarring. There are a few different types of chemical peels and when you visit us at Vain Medi Spa your nurse practitioner will choose which one they think is best for your skin! Once they choose the type of peel to use they will place it over the skin and it will automatically start taking effect. The acidic substances found in chemical peels will help to remove the top layer of skin in which holds the acne scar.
Dermal fillers are injections of proteins and/or acids that are meant to fill out or plump up a certain area of the skin. To remove acne scarring, the filler is injected directly into the scar tissue. However, while the effects happen immediately, they don’t last forever. So fillers can definitely be a way to reduce the appearance of scars but they don’t get rid of them forever. Patients will have to get injections on a yearly basis to keep their scars from showing back up.
