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.
