What To Do About Acne Scarring

If you are anything like 90% of the rest of the world, you’ve dealt with acne at some point in your life. It’s so common that we expect to experience it during our teen years and even into our 20s. While we don’t expect it to continue beyond that time frame, it’s not entirely uncommon to continue to suffer from acne into our 30s and 40s.

Acne is not a modern day phenomenon. Rumor has it, the very first humans suffered from a pimply face. Experts have learned quite a bit about acne and how to deal with it over the millennia. Thankfully, we’ve moved on from using mercury compounds and turpentine. One thing persists, though, in spite of recognizing nowadays that it does only harm. And that is the popping of those pesky pimples.

As kids, we tend to be more concerned with the presence of acne on our faces than the potential for future scarring. But here we are, facing the reality of acne scarring and wishing we could go back in time and stop ourselves from popping all those pimples.

What To Do About Acne Scarring

While we don’t have that elusive time machine, at the office of Dr. Chadwell we do have the next best thing. And that’s the ability to reduce the appearance of acne scars.

Here are some of our favorite scar reducing options that will leave you feeling like you really did get to take a trip back in time:

Deep Chemical Peel

The Deep Chemical Peel will not only reduce the appearance of acne scarring, but you’ll also enjoy a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, deep creases, and uneven pigmentation. This is a cosmetic surgery that will leave you looking 10 years younger. No time machine necessary.


This innovative, non-surgical procedure uses radiofrequency energy to work its magic on acne scarring. Using a technique similar to micro-needling, Fractora delivers the radiofrequency into the deep layers of the skin to revitalize collagen. As a result, your acne scars will fade (along with wrinkles and discoloration), leaving you with a healthy-looking complexion.


Visit our Skin Care Spa to treat yourself to a MicroPeel®. A thorough dermaplaining of your face with ample application of AHA solution, followed by soothing cryogenic therapy will both relax and revitalize you and your skin. This is an excellent option for those still dealing with acne. Take it to the next level with MicroPeel Plus® which uses an even higher peel concentration especially suited for dealing with acne scarring.
