As if active breakouts and blemishes are not embarrassing enough, scars left by acne are just downright cruel. While there’s no miracle treatment to makes scars completely disappear, there are innovative techniques that provide big results in lessening their appearance. Best of all, most treatments are performed in-office with little downtime. With offices in NYC and Staten Island, Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, provides non-surgical acne scarring treatment to repair and rejuvenate the skin.
Perhaps one of the most effective options in reducing acne scarring is Fractionated Laser Skin Resurfacing. Allure online explains that like microneedling, fractionated skin resurfacing sends skin a signal to respond to damage. The treatment involves creating microscopic columns or zones of injury resembling tiny perforations on the skin. Naturally, the body responds by producing collagen, thus rebuilding the structure of the skin. Improvements in skin texture are remarkable, and continue over time. While downtime is considered minimal, it is a bit longer than other methods, depending on the intensity of treatment required.
Similarly, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is beneficial in the treatment of acne scarring by boosting collagen production. Using a needling technique, the skin is punctured in an exact format, as an individual’s own blood plasma is injected into the face. Aside from stimulating collagen, PRP releases rich growth factors that promote the formation of elastin. For this reason, PRP is often referred to as “liquid gold.” When used following laser therapy, PRP treatments amplify results for acne scar patients.
Chemical peels are a tried and true cosmetic treatment that not only reduces active acne—they soften superficial acne scars. In essence, a chemical peel is a chemical form of exfoliation for the skin. Like laser and PRP therapy, its method creates an injury to skin cells that will lead to cell renewal. As brand new cells replace the old, the skin appears more even and smooth.
