Acne can be a problem for individuals of any age, but one lasting effect of acne is acne scars. If left unaddressed, many patients who have had acne in the past may experience these permanent scars for the rest of their lives. Some scars can be extremely noticeable. These scars can cause patients to lose self-esteem and become self-conscious about the way they look. However, patients do not have to live with acne scars. There are ways to reduce the severity of their appearance.
The providers at Unique Dermatology, offer a number of solutions for acne scarring. Our state-of-the-art dermatology clinic provides high-tech solutions and devices such as laser therapy, chemical peels, and even the use of creams and gels that may help improve the appearance of certain acne scars.
In order to determine the best form of treatment for acne scars, your provider will first need to evaluate you. During this consultation, your provider will determine the type of scar, the severity of the scars, and will make note of previous attempts to address them, if any. After this consultation, your provider can talk with you to come up with an appropriate treatment plan. Treatment plans may include laser skin resurfacing, injections, chemical peels, or topical products. Often a combination of these treatments will achieve the best results. The treatment plan will be discussed with you, as well as the cost and expectation of results, before the procedure begins.
The best way to keep acne scars from occurring is by treating the acne itself. Consult with the providers at Unique Dermatology, for expert personalized skin care advice. Makeup may temporarily improve the appearance of acne scars, but many patients seek longer lasting results.
