WHAT IS ACNE SCAR TREATMENT?

If you have acne scars that you would like to improve, we can help you achieve the smoother complexion that you have always desired. Our acne scar revision options are tailored to each patient depending upon the location and severity of the sites being treated. With this in mind, our best acne scar treatment is not a single treatment, but instead involves a series of procedures, each utilizing a combination of options such as Bellafill, laser resurfacing, and even surgical acne scar removal in severe instances.

 
 
 

WHO IS AN ACNE SCAR TREATMENT CANDIDATE?

If you have acne scarring that you do not like, you are an acne scar treatment candidate. It is that simple—there are no other conditions.

 
 
 

WHAT DOES ACNE SCAR TREATMENT ENTAIL?

Because no two acne scars are identical, the approach to each scar will vary. Sometimes, only a session of Bellafill is necessary to smooth the scar by filling any depression. This has proven to be a very easy and satisfying option for our patients because Bellafill for acne has been shown to last for many years. In fact, studies show that at least 80% of Bellafill injections can be seen up to seven years after the procedure.

In more severe or irregular scars, surgical removal is often advised. This is performed under local anesthesia, after which the irregular or severe scar is changed into a smoother and more discreet surgical scar.

Laser acne scar removal is another excellent option, as it can provide a significantly smoother appearance for surface-level scars. Dr. Rice uses fractionated CO2 lasers to obtain the best results, and this includes ActiveFx and DeepFx technology. The DeepFx technology involves manipulating the the laser beam in such a way that the energy is delivered to a deeper level of the skin.This procedure is done under sedation to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the process. 

 
 
 

WHAT IS THE ACNE SCAR TREATMENT RECOVERY TIME?

There is no downtime for treatment procedures that include Bellafill, but there is a brief period of 1-2 weeks in which side effects, such as bruising and swelling, may occur.

With surgical acne scar removal, limited daily activities, such as work or light exercise, can be resumed within several days, while you can return to your normal daily routine within 2 weeks. 

As for DeepFx, there is some downtime, and you will be required to take special care of the treated regions for the first 1-2 weeks. 

 
 
 

ACNE SCAR TREATMENT RESULTS:

Results will depend, in large part, on the severity of your situation. In many cases, though, long-lasting results can be achieved in the form of a clear and smooth complexion.
