If you have been left with craters or pits from adolescent battles with acne, we recommend that you consider Newport Beach acne scar treatment options. We offer effective treatments here at Ageless M.D.
A consultation is usually the first step where we discuss the differences between acne scars.
For example, the ice pick variety are usually thin but deep. They look like an ice pick has been driven into the skin and that’s where the name comes from.
Rolling scars are another deep variety that have their namesake edges. The flatter version of acne scars that have been described as ‘crater like’ are called boxcar scars.
We tell our patients they need to remember that acne scars are permanent. Microdermabrasion is one option that only treats the scar on a superficial level.
Lasers have also been used but this is an aggressive method that causes damage to your skin. Patients generally need several of these treatments and there is a long downtime involved.
Please read on to find out more about one of the technologies that we favor for effective Newport acne scar treatment.
This is one of the latest innovative technologies and one of the most effective. The latest version adds controlled radiofrequency energy which targets deep layers of skin while leaving the outer parts intact.
The device we use not only treats acne scars, it also treats acne outbreaks. It requires hardly any down time and you can space the sessions out three weeks apart.
Ageless M.D. also has some other effective tools we use to treat acne scars.
- Bellafill is an FDA approved treatment that can last up to five years. It stretches scars and flattens them out but unfortunately cannot be used on the ice pick variety.
- TCA Crosshatch is another option. This involves dipping the tip of a needle into a solution and then touching it against an ice pick scar. The inside core of this scar is burned off and that allows new skin to start forming.
Ageless M.D. also offers treatment options. The goal of the Newport acne start treatment we offer is improving unsightly acne scarring. We are proud to offer the most advanced and cutting edge procedures available. Why not book an appointment to come in to our state of the art office today?
