Acne Scars

Acne is frustrating for everyone.  Whether it is a teenager who has had to cope with an occasional blemish, or an adult who still has periodic outbreaks, people go to great lengths to avoid having acne.  What is even more frustrating is having to cope with acne scars as a reminded of past breakouts once you are an adult.

Acne Vulgaris

Acne vulgaris is a common skin condition in which hair follicles and/or the sebaceous glands that are associated with those follicles become clogged.  Just like anything, once a pore is clogged, things that used to travel through backup, and this backup inflames the skin and pimple is born.  Whether teenage acne or adult acne, these backups are frustrating and can cause a great deal of angst.

Acne Outbreak

As troubling as an outbreak can be, what is even worse is an acne scar caused by pimples.  Acne scars often stay with a person their entire life and can rob people of self-confidence and self-image.  Acne scars are created when acne bursts below the surface of the skin.  The deeper the burst pore is, the more likely there will be scarring.  One of the more common dermatology related treatments people seek is acne scar removal. There are a number of possible treatments for acne scars to help make your face smoother and so you can look better and feel more confident.

Acne Scar Treatment

At Skin Med Spa we will customize a treatment plan that will help with your individual skin issues caused by acne scars.  We can offer treatments such as chemical peel and laser treatment to help your face become smoother as damaged skin is replaced with healthier and smoother tissue.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels is a treatment that can give anyone’s skin a fresh look.  Chemical peels are a way to make your skin look healthier and more vibrant.  A chemical peel removes damaged skin layers, causing damaged skin to shed.  Chemical peels are often used by those who suffer from acne scars, as well as other skin issues such as scars and sun damage.

Laser Treatments

When treated with a laser, the skin is hit with pulses of laser light a thousand times in each tiny spot of the treated skin.  This laser treatment inspires the body to create its own natural healing from the laser, and as a result of the healing, scarred skin is healed in the process.  Part of the healing process with laser treatments includes collagen growth, as well as the regeneration of skin cells.  Laser treatments are often used for acne scars, as well as scars, birth marks, and even enlarged pores.
