One of the most common skin issues is acne. We have all experienced it in one form or another, whether it was during puberty or a long-lasting issue into adulthood. Acne can leave behind noticeable scar tissue on any impacted area. Fortunately, Skin & Vein offers a variety of treatments for acne scars that can help reduce the appearance of this problem condition.

Laser Acne Scar Removal

You can remove unwanted acne scar tissue through skin resurfacing that works by smoothing out the surface of your skin. Laser acne scar removal is one way to achieve this by using non-ablative lasers that smooth out scar tissue and stimulate collagen production in the skin. The scar tissue is essentially vaporized, allowing new skin tissue to replace it. Laser acne scar removal is one of the most effective treatments we provide.

Fat Grafting

Sometimes acne scars can appear as a hollow area under your skin. This area can be filled with a procedure called fat grafting. Fat tissue from your own body will be removed through a small cannula and injected into the treated areas. This allows a firmer and plumper skin appearance, thus reducing the appearance of acne scars. One great benefit of this procedure is how fat is removed from unwanted areas on your body.

Filler Injections

Indentations of your skin due to acne scars can also be filled with injectable fillers. These fillers are a temporary treatment for a firmer skin appearance and need follow-up treatments every four to six months.

Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasions

Another way to remove acne scar tissue is to remove the outer layer of your skin. This is achieved either with a chemical peel using a concentrated acidic solution or microdermabrasion. For chemical peels, the solution is applied directly to your skin, removing this top layer of skin tissue and allowing new tissue to grow in its place. Microdermabrasions achieve similar results by removing the top layer of skin tissue through a buffer while exfoliating the skin.
