3 Treatments that Improve Acne Scars

1. Bellafill Acne Scar Filler.

For people with distensible scars or “rolling scars” scars, Bellafill provides an excellent solution for acne scarring.

Here’s how it works: Bellafill uses safe and nondegradable microspheres to quickly and effectively “fill” the pocks created by deep acne scars. With just a few careful injections, Bellafill can create a smoother appearance, free from deep acne scars that usually won’t respond to topical acne creams or laser skin resurfacing treatments.

Best of all, Bellafill results last for up to five years, making it a game-changing solution for patients tired of dealing with noticeable acne scars.

2. Fraxel CO2 Fractional Ablative Laser Resurfacing.

Fractional ablative laser resurfacing represents the gold standard for acne scar removal because it simultaneously tackles the problem on two fronts:

  1. It stimulates collagen and elastin production for faster cellular turnover; and
  2. It triggers wound-healing processes to speed up acne scar fading.

Unlike other laser skin resurfacing treatments – which completely remove the top dermal layers – fractional ablative laser resurfacing creates tiny columns within the dermis to trigger collagen and elastin production. With enough treatments, patients will see clear and brighter-looking skin.

3. PRP Platelet-Rich Plasma Rejuvenation.

PRP – which stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma – is an innovative new treatment designed to speed up cellular turnover for faster acne scar reduction. PRP solution combines your body’s own platelets with a special growth serum; this formula is then added to a microneedling device and quickly injected into the treatment site. With enough PRP sessions, patients can expect to see a reduction in scars, as well as an improvement in other complexion woes.

4. IndyMed Intensif RF Microneedling.

IndyMed Intensif RF Microneedling is an innovative treatment that combines the power of microneedling with skin-tightening radiofrequency energy. Here’s how it works: small needle tips puncture the dermal tissue, promoting lightning-fast cellular turnover, while radiofrequency energy penetrates the subdermal tissue to help accelerate collagen production. The total effect is that acne scars fade a lot faster, leading to firmer and clearer-looking skin. This is quickly becoming the new gold standard for acne scars due to the fact that Radio Frequency technology is much safer for all skin types.

I came here for acne and acne cysts concerns about 2 years ago. Let me start by saying acne is tricky to treat. It’s not just about products but what’s happening internally as well. It’s frustrating to not see results right away but I stayed consistent. I went beyond educating myself with foods to eat or avoid, as well as following the morning & night skin routines doctor provided specifically for me. Present day I can say I am beyond satisfied with my skin. It’s clean, clear, and manageable. I currently visit and receive DermalInfusion treatments by Jess and Sandy – the whole staff is lovely! I would recommend this place.
