Acne Scar Removal
Acne breakouts are common during the teenage and early adult years. Unfortunately, even when acne flareups are in your past, your skin may still reveal evidence of acne problems. Acne scars, especially on the face, can impact the texture and tone of your skin. If you want to restore a smooth, evenly toned complexion, there are treatments available. We offer acne scar removal at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA, to improve your skin and self-confidence in your appearance.
Acne scarring can cause extensive damage to the skin. Some acne scars can leave indents or pockmarks in the skin (atrophic scarring); others may leave behind discolorations or blemishes. Both can affect your complexion and may need treatment to smooth or fade away. The good news is that most acne scar removal treatments are minimally invasive and can vastly improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Skin Treatments To Remove Acne Scarring
For darker pigmented acne scars, laser skin treatments can be an excellent tool to remove and fade discolored scar tissue. Laser treatments target darker pigmented skin cells that create blemishes on the skin. This can fade acne scars and promote healing of the skin to improve the tone and complexion.
For ice pick scarring or pockmarks caused by acne, skin resurfacing may be needed. This can also be accomplished with laser skin treatments – usually, CO2 skin resurfacing is used to remove the damaged top layer of skin. Dermabrasion treatments can also be useful for improving the skin surface. Other options for treating acne scarring include microneedling and chemical peels.
