Acne is incredibly common and can leave scars that linger for years after an outbreak has cleared. While you can find home remedies on the internet and scar gels at your local grocery store, these treatments often leave patients frustrated and fail to deliver promised results. At California Skin & Laser Center in Stockton, California, we provide effective acne scar treatments customized for your unique needs to help you feel confident about your appearance again.
Acne scar treatment options near me
When it comes to treating active acne breakouts and the scarring they leave behind, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Several different types of scars can develop from acne, and the best treatment options vary for each type. To help determine the best treatment plan for your needs, Dr. Bock performs a comprehensive examination of your skin and talks with you about your medical history, preferences for treatment, and skin concerns. Depending on your needs, one or more of the following treatments might be recommended:
- Laser and light therapies: ThermaScan™ non-invasive infrared laser, Fraxel re:store™ laser, and Sciton laser resurfacing use the power of light energy to treat acne scars with less downtime and discomfort than more aggressive laser treatment options
- Punch grafts: Small skin grafts are performed using a small biopsy punch to improve the appearance of pitted scars
- Radiofrequency microneedling: Using the revolutionary Infini device, micro-injuries are created in the skin, and healing radiofrequency energy is delivered to improve both acne breakouts and associated scars
- Microdermabrasion: A skin resurfacing treatment that improves the overall appearance of skin with minimal to no downtime
- Dermal fillers: Depressed scars can be smoothed out with dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane; because the body naturally absorbs the fillers over time, touch-up treatments are necessary to maintain results
- Subcision: Another treatment option for depressed scars; this treatment uses a small needle to release the bottom portion of the scar for a smoother skin appearance
