Acne scars can be a source of embarrassment for many men and women. The pesky problem can have a negative impact on how others perceive us as well as adversely affecting our self-image. Acne scars can play a role in every aspect of our lives from the social activities we participate in to our work performance.
If you’re bothered by darkly pigmented or pitted acne scars throughout your face or body, there is hope. Levy Dermatology is here to help. We offer a wide range of highly-customizable options for patients with various skin conditions.
In many cases, you can be in and out of your treatment session within the hour. Take a look at some of our favorite treatments for reducing the appearance of stubborn acne scars below.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is a minimally-invasive resurfacing technique that gently exfoliates the topmost layers of the dermis exposing the fresh layers beneath. The treatment typically only takes 15-30 minutes to complete and improves the tone, texture, and feel of your skin.
Results can be as subtle or dramatic depending on how much downtime one has. For mild acne scarring, downtime is minimal. However, for severe concerns, you may want to plan on 4-7 days for full recovery.
BBL™ BroadBand Light
BBL™ BroadBand Light treatments are ideal for patients with a multitude of skin conditions. Non-invasive BBL™ treatments use light energy to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin stimulating beneficial collagen and peptide production. The procedure is safe, effective, and requires very little discomfort or downtime.
Treatments are done in 30-minute sessions. An overall smoother complexion can be seen in just 2-weeks with continued improvement over the course of several months. A series of 4-6 BBL™ treatments are usually necessary to achieve your desired results.
SkinPen® is the first, and only, microneedling pen of its kind. The minimally-invasive handheld device uses tiny needle-like pins to bore micro-channels throughout the predetermined treatment area. In turn, your body’s natural self-healing process is jump-started. Collagen and elastin production are immediately put into overdrive giving you instant, long-lasting results.
SkinPen® treatments are safe and effective for all skin types and tones. The procedure can also be done in conjunction with Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) transfer to maximize benefits.
Whether you’ve got unwanted acne scars on the face, chest, hands, or neck, we’re here to help. Our broad range of treatments can each be customized based on your lifestyle habits, skin condition, and aesthetic goals.
