Acne & Facial Scars and How to Treat Them
Acne is a debilitating condition that may last years in some people. It seems unfair that after suffering through active acne; scars and pit marks are left behind to remind you of the whole ordeal. While some people manage to escape scarring, many are left with divots and pitted skin. At EverYoung Medical Aesthetics, we are committed to helping our patient’s clear acne and soften the acne scars that are left behind.
Strategies for smooth skin
BELLAFILL: Topical Dermal Filler: Best for atrophic, distensible acne scars
This is the only dermal filler on the market approved for the treatment of moderate to severe, atrophic, distensible facial acne scars on the cheek. It works by adding volume to the indented scars and bring them up to the level of surrounding skin. It restores skin as well for long-lasting, natural results. Collagen provides the instant result and microspheres create a supportive base that allows more of your own collagen to develop for long term benefits and smoother skin.
- Instant results
- Lasts up to one year (longer in some patients)
- Fast treatment time
- No downtime
PROFRACTIONAL Laser Skin Resurfacing: Best for icepick scars and atrophic scars
This laser treatment resurfaces the skin from the inside out to stimulate the growth of new collagen and replace damaged cells with healthy tissue. As new collagen forms—scars and acne scars are plumped up from within for a more even surface.
- Replaces damaged cells with healthy tissue
- Progressive results as skin repairs itself and new collagen forms
- Long lasting results up to several years
- Less invasive than competing devices
- Also works on wrinkles, texture and skin tone
- Minimal downtime
SUBCISION Scar Revision: Best for rolling scars and box car scars
Subcision is a safe in-office surgical procedure to treat acne scars and depressed acne scars. It may be used alone or in conjunction with one of the above treatments. Subcision is used to separate the acne scar from the tissue it is tethered too; in other words—the part that stretches the scar and makes it more visible.
- The best solution for hard-to-treat rolling scars and box car scars
- Quick healing time
- A numbing agent is applied for a comfortable treatment
- Visible results that are permanent
- Works well in conjunction with filler or laser resurfacing
