Three Forms of Acne Scarring Removal to Better Address Individual Goals
At Chadwell Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jon Chadwell practices the most innovative techniques to treat acne scars—safely and effectively. Take a look at how three methods of acne scar removal are helping patients meet the specific needs of their skin type and condition.
- Chemical-Based Skin Resurfacing
How It Works: Dr. Chadwell will give patients a mild sedative prior to applying a phenol-based chemical solution to the face. Following a deep chemical peel, patients are instructed to apply a dense, soothing cream, abstain from vigorous exercise, and stay out of the sun throughout the recovery period.
Best Candidates: Individuals with mild scarring and lighter skin tones respond best to chemical-based skin resurfacing. Those who have experienced abnormal skin scarring, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, facial warts, or harsh acne treatments within the previous one to two years are not suitable candidates.
- Fractional Skin Resurfacing
How It Works: Fractora™ utilizes radiofrequency energy in the form of micro pins to target acne scarring. Fractional skin resurfacing by radiofrequency is effective in reaching the deep layers of the skin affected by acne. The process, similar to micro needling, can revitalize collagen that has been diminished due to scarring.
Best Candidates: Those with mild to more severe acne scarring often see improvement after Fractora™ treatment. It may take several sessions three to four week intervals to achieve full results. Most skin types are suitable, and the procedure requires little to no downtime.
- Soft Tissue Fillers
How It Works: Dr. Chadwell uses Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, and RADIESSE® injectables to stimulate the production of collagen.
Best Candidates: Dermal fillers work best on “rolling scars” and “box scars” that leave depressions in the skin. Fillers are suitable for most skin types, and the results are immediate.
