How to Get Rid of Acne and Acne Scars

Few complexion concerns are as frustrating as active breakouts and the marks they leave behind. If it feels like you’ve tried everything to clear your skin, it’s time to consider professional cosmetic treatments. Here are a few options that are popular with our Metairie patients.

Skin Resurfacing

Resurfacing treatments are a great way to improve the appearance of widespread acne and acne scarring. These services work by removing layers of affected skin. They also encourage the production of healthy new skin cells.

We offer a variety of resurfacing treatments, including laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. One option that’s particularly good for acne and acne scarring is the VI Peel. This medical-grade chemical peel can be used on the face, neck, and body for all-over improvement. Another option is microneedling or Radio Frequency microneedling which uses RF energy and needles to stimulate collagen and elastin to minimize acne scars.

Facial Fillers

Depressed acne scars are uniquely challenging. They sit beneath the surface and don’t respond well to most at-home treatments and remedies. What’s more, they are virtually impossible to conceal with makeup.

Injectable fillers offer a safe and effective way to improve pitted acne scars. Fillers like Juvederm® plump the divots in your skin to create a more even look and feel. Most fillers are temporary and need to be redone for seamless results.

Professional Skin Care Products

The right skin care products can significantly improve the appearance of acne and some types of acne scars. They also help enhance and maintain the results that you get from in-office treatments. We carry professional skin care lines from Obagi and SkinMedica® to meet your unique needs.

Our team may recommend effective options such as Obagi’s Clenziderm acne treatment system or Medical Tretinoin Cream for acne bacteria. SkinMedica’s Lytera Skin Brightening System is great for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Talk to us about building your ideal skin care routine.
