Acne Scars Q & A

Renew Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness

What types of acne scars can be treated?

Acne can result in a number of different types of acne scars, all of which may be reduced in appearance using microneedling, dermal fillers, and laser treatment. Renew Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness can address:

  • Rolling acne scars that depress your skin in a wavy pattern
  • Ice pick scars, which are narrow scars that pit your skin
  • Boxcar scars that indent your skin
  • Hypertrophic scars, which are raised above the skin’s surface

By using a combination of microneedling, dermal fillers and laser treatment, Renew Aesthetic Medicine is able to treat whatever types of scars you have. Not all scars respond the same to each treatment, which makes the multi-faceted approach most desirable.

Dermal fillers, for example, work well for boxcar and rolling scars – but in some cases can also be used to effectively address ice pick scars. Laser treatment can help smooth out hypertrophic scars.

How do lasers improve the appearance of acne scars?

The Icon laser system works quickly to treat acne scars. Treatments are relatively pain-free and carry minimal downtime. The laser is appropriate for all skin types.

The laser directs fractional laser light to treatment areas. This breaks down scar tissue and triggers the production of new, healthier tissue.

How do dermal fillers address acne scars?

Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid, a compound naturally produced by your body, to plump and hydrate your skin, temporarily reducing the appearance of acne scars. We will carefully inject Juvederm into the areas around scars to smooth your complexion. Every patient needs a customized dose to achieve their desired results.

Juvederm treatments are noninvasive and quick. You do feel a pinch during the application of the needle, but ice or a topical cream can alleviate discomfort. Results are evident almost immediately and continue to improve over several weeks. The effects last six months or longer. Retreatments are always possible to maintain your smooth look.
