Acne and acne scars are a common skin condition and they can take a toll on your body image and self-esteem. If you are looking for the best acne and acne scar treatment, About Face is your specialty destination. Our expert team of doctors understands the underlying root causes of acne and how to treat sensitive skin.
Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition, characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and deeper lumps (cysts or nodules) that occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Acne scars are pigment cells that are damaged causing uneven skin texture and even uneven skin tone.
To combat this, About Face has designed an acne and scar treatment to clear the skin and prevent it from having more breakouts in the future. For acne scar reduction About Face offers the following treatments.
- Derma Roller:
Also known as “needling” or “micro-needling,” Derma Roller treatment boosts the collagen production in your body. To perform this procedure, a dermatologist moves a sterile, handheld needle-studded roller across the depressed acne scars, puncturing the skin. As your skin heals, it produces collagen.
- Chemical Peels:
Chemical peels work well for mild to moderate acne scars and also helps to even out the skin’s tone. The top layer of the skin that is affected by acne and its stubborn scars is removed by applying a chemical application to your skin. By removing the top affected layer, the skin regenerates, often improving the skin’s overall appearance.
- Dermal Fillers:
Hyaluronic acid filler injections are also used for the treatment of acne scars. The scar is first lifted and then filled with these products. This procedure is great for patients with severe scarring caused by acne, chicken pox, or even scars from surgeries.
