Acne Scar Treatment Q & A
What causes acne scars?
Acne affects millions of Americans every year, but not everyone who suffers from the common skin condition develops acne scars.
Some blemishes break through the pore and damage the deep layers of skin underneath. When the blemish clears, your skin uses collagen to repair the damage. If your skin produces too little or too much collagen, you're left with an acne scar.
Depressed acne scar
Depressed acne scars develop when your skin can’t produce an adequate amount of collagen to repair the damage. These types of acne scars may create depressions or pits in your skin.
Raised acne scar
When your skin produces too much collagen, you may develop a raised acne scar. Raised acne scars may be red, itchy, or painful.
What are acne scar treatments?
At Aesthetica Houston Med Spa, Sarah offers many acne scar treatments.
Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that induces collagen production. For acne scar treatment, Sarah uses a special microneedling tool to create tiny tears in the surface of your skin, which triggers your skin’s natural healing process.
Over time, the new collagen fills in the depressed acne scar to create a smoother texture.
Chemical peels are a medical facial that exfoliates the top layer of your skin. Like microneedling, the treatment activates your skin’s natural healing powers, which helps your acne scars fade away.
Microdermabrasian is a type of facial that uses a special tool to exfoliate your skin and then vacuum away the debris and impurities. It creates smoother, fresher skin and minimizes the appearance of acne scars.
Skin tightening treatments use heat energy to tighten the deep layers of your skin and activate collagen production. The tightening effect lifts and smooths your skin to reduce the appearance of depressed acne scars.
Fillers are a cosmetic injection that fills in a depressed acne scar to improve appearance.
