Acne is far and away one of the most commonly-experienced skin conditions in the United States, and the problems it causes can sometimes last quite a lot longer than the condition itself. If you’ve found yourself dealing with a series of unsightly scars that remain after your acne has faded away, we offer a variety of scar reduction treatments at our San Diego facility, allowing you to enjoy smooth, clear skin once more.
What Causes Acne Scarring?
Acne scars typically arise as the body tries to fix a “full thickness” dermal injury, caused by recent breakouts. Scarring can range from deep, “ice pick” indentations, to mild pigmentation.
We’ll work closely with you, scheduling a consultation to create a custom treatment regimen, designed to address your specific needs and the exact scarring that you’re experiencing. Please note that deeper acne scarring can take several treatments to safely get a dramatic result.
Scar Reduction in San Diego
We offer laser skin resurfacing with ProFractional XC, a non-surgical skincare treatment that can address acne scars without the need for invasive surgery. By creating micro-channels in the skin, the ProFractional treatment stimulates the body’s wound repair process, causing it to send healing and restorative compounds to the treatment area, breaking down scar tissue in the process, while also restoring the production of collagen and elastin.
When combined with skin-specific stem cells, microneedling serves as a highly effective treatment for acne scars. Highly-specialized stem cells work to increase the number of collagen-building cells, providing better, longer lasting results. These cells are placed into the skin via the micro-channels, where they work to stimulate healing and the production of new, stronger cells.
The MicroLaserPeel skin resurfacing treatment can significantly reduce the presence of acne scarring by encouraging the production of new layers of skin, while also encouraging the production of collagen and other nourishing compounds. The process is safe, easy, and requires no downtime or recovery period.
An exfoliating chemical peel is one of the most popular acne scar reduction treatments available in our San Diego treatment center, allowing you not only to reduce the appearance of acne scarring, but also to smooth over lines and wrinkles and walk back other signs of aging as you do so. We offer a variety of chemical peels, each one designed to address a specific need.
