Acne scarring can be treated with a variety of modalities. Micro-needling, subscision, lasers and chemical peels are all options that oftentimes work well in concert with each other. All modalities require a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Twelve or thirty-six automated tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin at precise depths to stimulate collagen and elastin production resulting in remodeling of scar tissue and improvement in skin texture, pigmentation, tone and fine lines and wrinkles.
Outpatient surgical office procedure ideal for rolling acne scars (stretchable, depressed scars with gently sloping edges) where fibrotic strands or scar tissue are broken up with a needle.
Energy based devices using wavelengths of light to specifically target water in the skin to heat and damage tissue to stimulate collagen production and remodel scars.
Specifically selected strength and combination of chemicals are used to remove the epidermis and possibly superficial layers of the dermis to remodel scars.
