Acne scars can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, whether you’re a teenager or a working professional. The good news is, you don’t have to put up with them! There are new treatments and technologies that can drastically improve your skin and make acne scars less noticeable. Board-Certified plastic surgeons like Dr. David Steckler in Jackson, MS are skilled and highly trained to treat acne scars and obtain great outcomes for their patients.
There are quite a few non-surgical interventions that can improve acne scarring, including microneedling, dermal fillers, dermabrasion, topical creams and laser resurfacing.
Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. This generates new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Dermal fillers are injectables that can improve the appearance of recessed scars from acne. There ae several different kinds of dermal fillers, including Hyaluronic acid injections and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres.
Dermabrasion can be done under local or general anesthesia. It helps refinish the skin’s top layers through controlled surgical scraping. Surface irregularities and scars are eliminated or reduced, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
Fractora is a new skin treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) to rejuvenate and resurface skin and treat acne. It provides localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the sub-dermal tissue to promote collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation. The damage to the skin surface is much more minimal which means faster healing time.
Scar treatments should only be administered under the supervision of a trained, qualified and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like Dr. David Steckler at the Mississippi Center For Plastic Surgery. Contact the office for your free consultation and say goodbye to those acne scars!
