Acne Scar Removal
Many people live with acne scars that haunt them for years after the acne breakouts. From dark discoloration to pitted atrophic scarring, acne can leave behind scars that change the skin’s appearance. If you want to improve your skin’s tone and texture and eliminate the evidence of acne breakouts, you need acne scar removal treatment. Dr. Aviva Preminger is a board certified plastic surgeon who offers effective acne scar removal options at her practice in Manhattan.
The treatment used for removing pimple scars depends on the type of scarring and the patient’s skin type. Some patients only have dark, flat skin scarring from previous acne, while others may have ice pick scars or deep gouges left behind from their acne breakouts. Dark acne scars can be faded with a variety of skin treatments, from chemical peels and laser treatments to microneedling and radiofrequency procedures. Atrophic acne scars often require skin resurfacing to smooth the texture and even the skin tone.
Advanced Acne Scar Treatments
One of the best options for removing all types of acne scars is skin resurfacing. Dr. Preminger offers cutting-edge laser treatments for skin resurfacing that can effectively rejuvenate the skin. CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment or Fractora skin remodeling are both incredible at reducing the appearance of acne scars on the skin. Both stimulate collagen production and resurface the skin to improve the tone and texture with minimally-invasive treatments.
Every patient with acne scarring may require a different treatment plan. The type of treatment recommended by Dr. Preminger will depend on the patient’s skin type, severity of scarring and other skin conditions. Chemical peels, laser treatments, RF/microneedling and other treatments may be suggested based on your specific skin and acne scar type.
Most acne scar treatments do not require surgery. For severe acne scarring, multiple treatments may be required to achieve the best results.
