Acne impacts almost everyone to some level, especially in the teen and young adult years. The hormonal changes and other factors can lead to extreme acne breakouts. Not only is acne difficult to live with when it is occurring, but the skin infection can leave behind scars that are noticeable for years to come. At Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery, we offer acne scar removal at our facility in Beverly Hills, CA.
Acne scars are usually either flat and discolored or they can be atrophic, indented in the skin. Pock marks or ice pick scars are a common issue caused by large pimples. With atrophic acne scars, even makeup will not hide the change in the texture of the skin. The only way to diminish severe acne scarring is with skin treatments to smooth the texture and remove discolorations.
Cosmetic Treatments for Acne Scarring
Both laser skin treatments and chemical peels can be used to remove acne scars. The right treatment depends on the type and severity of scars. Laser skin treatments use light energy to remove darker pigmented skin cells. If the skin is pock marked from acne, laser skin resurfacing may be recommended to smooth the texture of the skin.
Chemical peels can be wonderful for improving both acne breakouts and removing acne scars. Light chemical peels are great for mild acne scarring and do not require downtime. For moderate to severe acne scarring, medium to deep chemical peels may be recommended to remove damaged skin cells and smooth the skin.
Dr. Chaudhry at Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery can examine your skin and determine the best treatment to minimize your acne scars. Most acne scar treatments are non-invasive and can be performed in a short office visit. Depending on the treatment used, most patients begin seeing a big difference in their skin in the weeks after their procedure.
