Are you one of the many patients who has successfully eliminated their acne but is now left with scars? Thankfully, there are solutions for improving the appearance of these imperfections. We’ll share the top acne scar treatment options you should consider at Anders Dermatology!
The Best Chemical Peel for Acne Scars
One of the simplest acne scar treatment options to commit to is a chemical peel. They’re non-invasive and provide immediate results! Plus, we don’t use just any chemical peel for acne scars—we recommend the powerful trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel. TCA peels are ideal because they reach deeper into the skin than your typical alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peel, making it the best chemical peel for acne scars.
TCA peels remove dead skin cells, revealing a smoother complexion while triggering skin regeneration. As the skin renews itself over time, the appearance of acne scars and other imperfections improve with your body’s natural healing process. Depending on the severity of your concerns, multiple sessions may be necessary—but the results this peel provides are drastic and long-lasting.
Microneedling for Skin Rejuvenation
Another effective acne scar treatment option is microneedling. This minimally-invasive procedure involves puncturing the skin with multiple fine needles to trigger skin rejuvenation. The result is new, healthy skin cells, just as a TCA peel accomplishes!
Microneedling may sound intimidating, but it is a painless procedure with minimal downtime required. Your skin will be sensitive after your session; therefore, your skin specialist will direct you on proper post-procedure care. Depending on the severity of your condition, more than one treatment may be necessary to achieve desire results.
Everyday Care for Healing Acne Scars
In addition to finding a cosmetic treatment option, having the right skin care routine plays a role in eliminating acne scars as well. If you’re still in the stage of treating acne, seeking a dermatologist is an important step in the process, as they can guide you on how to successfully address your blemishes and prevent scarring in the first place. And even if you’ve already experienced scarring and are undergoing treatment, the right skin care products can optimize your results, prevent new breakouts and improve the overall health of your skin.
