Cosmetic Dermatology Treatments to Fix Troublesome Acne Scarring
With more than 90% of the population dealing with acne at some point in their lives, it’s no secret that acne scarring is a pesky problem that plagues millions of people each year. Our cosmetic dermatologists at Ocean’s Dermatology are dedicated to providing acne scarring treatments that will have you showing off that radiant glow—scar-free—in no time.
Why Does Acne Cause Scarring & How Can I Treat It?
Acne scarring is caused by many things including decreased collagen production, picking and popping, inflammatory conditions, and even genetics. The good news is there are many ways that you can treat your acne scarring, the most effective of which will require a visit to see our team of board-certified dermatologists at Ocean’s Dermatology!
A couple of our favorite treatments for acne scarring are chemical peels and microneedling. Let’s talk about why they are so effective, shall we?
But before we do we want to start with a quick caution. There are many companies that sell at-home chemical peel or microneedling kits and devices. While some might be effective, many can actually cause more harm to your sensitive skin. It’s always better to have a professional handle facial treatments for your own safety and cosmetic results! So, make an appointment with our trained dermatologists—please don’t try to solve your acne scarring woes with over-the-counter finds on Amazon!
Microneedling for Acne Scarring Treatment
First up is microneedling for acne scars. Microneedling is a cosmetic dermatology treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy, that pricks your skin to stimulate collagen growth. That collagen then helps to produce new healthy skin cells which smooth your skin, in turn, filling the areas affected by acne scarring. It’s a quick, non-invasive procedure which may result in redness for a couple days but there are minimal side effects and big results.
Chemical Peels for Acne Scarring Treatment
Next is chemical peels for acne scars. Chemical peels, also known as facial peels, are a specialty service offered by our team as a medical-grade facial treatment option. These are not your average chemical peel or facial offered by a day spa, the solutions we use are much stronger and more effective for long-term results. Chemical peels are applied to the skin, removing layers of dead skin in moments. Not only that, they also promote collagen and new skin growth similar to microneedling. Regardless of which option you choose, you will see results.
