Dr. Joshua Zuckerman - MDThe Best In-Office Treatments for Acne Scars

Knowing what types of acne scars you have is crucial in finding the right treatment. First, figure out what category your acne scars fall under. There are two types of acne scars: Pitted acne scars (where there has been a loss of tissue and the skin literally looks as though there is an indentation in it) and post-inflammatory acne scars (the red spots or brown spots left on the skin after active acne lesions disappear). The acne scar treatment options we offer at Schweiger Dermatology Group for pitted acne scars include laser treatments such as F.A.S.T a quicker way to take care of your acne scars, chemical peels, fillers, PRP, and list based treatments.

Best Laser Treatments for Pitted Acne Scars

The gold standard treatment for acne scars is laser rejuvenation therapy using the fractional CO2 laser. The fractional CO2 laser targets the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen renewal, which in turn fills in depressed acne scars. We are proud to offer the most advanced lasers at Schweiger Dermatology Group:  Fraxel Re: pair and Fraxel Restore, Matrix CO2, the MiXto CO2 Fractional laser, Laser Genesis and we are constanlty keeping up with the latest technologies. To target the red and brown spots that remain after acne lesions resolve, we use the intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, which destroy the pigmented red and brown skin cells on the skin, leaving a more uniform and even-toned complexion.

The Best Fillers for Acne Scars

At SDG, we offer dermal fillers to naturally plump up areas of scarring. While dermal fillers offer a temporary fix for pitted acne scars, they are a great option for those who want to have their scars fixed in a timely manner. Many brides choose to have dermal fillers done on their acne scars prior to their weddings. We also offer PRP to rejuvenate areas of scarring.
