Get Rid of Acne ScarsAcne scars can be hard to cover up, but they’re not something you have to live with. A variety of treatments can help reduce their appearance, leaving you with smoother, more beautiful skin.
The following five treatments are often used to help get rid of acne scars:

  1. Chemical peels

Light- to moderate-depth chemical peels can help rejuvenate your skin by disrupting the bonds between dead skin cells. Old, dead skin flakes away to reveal new, healthy skin. In addition to diminishing the appearance of some types of acne scars, they can also treat fine lines and freckles.

  1. Laser skin resurfacing

Active FX CO2 laser skin resurfacing precisely and evenly removes layers of damaged skin to help treat acne scars. It helps even out the skin’s surface and increases the formation of collagen, which helps fill in scars. The results are often dramatic and long-lasting.

  1. Dermal filler treatments

If you have deep acne scars, dermal fillers such as Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane can be an effective way to treat them. Filler injections help fill in the deep indentations that acne can leave behind, but they’ll need to be repeated every four to six months.

  1. Laser toning

Laser toning, unlike laser resurfacing, doesn’t remove any layers of skin. Instead, it tightens the skin and helps diminish the appearance of acne depressions. It also helps stimulate collagen, improving the look of aging or sun-damaged skin. Laser toning helps stimulate the production of collagen, which helps make your skin look smoother.

  1. Intensif micro-needle treatment

Intensif microneedling uses radiofrequency energy precisely delivered by very fine needles attached to a dermal pen. The energy is able to penetrate deep into the skin, encouraging the production of new elastin and collagen. It can help get rid of acne scars in around three treatments that are spaced four to six weeks apart.
