June is Acne Awareness Month, and here at Georgia Skin Specialists, we’re committed to keeping you informed about the best skincare treatments available. If you’ve battled with acne, you understand the frustration of dealing with acne scars. The great news is, there are plenty of effective options out there to help minimize their appearance and get your skin looking its best.

Acne Scarring Causes

Acne scars pop up when severe acne digs deep into the skin and messes with the tissues underneath. This usually happens with inflammatory acne, like cysts and nodules, which disrupt the skin’s natural healing process. The inflammation breaks down collagen, and as the skin tries to fix itself, it can either produce too much or too little collagen, leading to raised or indented scars.

Treatments for Acne Scars

Laser Therapy

Morpheus8 combines the benefits of fractional laser resurfacing with the power of radiofrequency energy. This treatment targets deep layers of the skin to promote collagen production and skin regeneration, leading to improved overall skin texture and tone.

Broadband Light Therapy (BBL)

Light up your skin’s healing with BBL, a powerful light-based photofacial that penetrates deep to target oil glands, zap bacteria, and reduce inflammation. BBL not only clears up your skin but also boosts collagen production, helping you achieve a healthier, clearer complexion.

Microneedling

Looking to refine your skin’s texture? Microneedling penetrates the skin’s surface, triggering a natural immune response to disinfect, remove debris, increase blood flow, and activate the creation of new tissue. This treatment is perfect for reducing the appearance of indented acne scars and giving your skin a smoother, more youthful look.

Chemical Peels

Reveal fresh, new skin with a customized chemical peel. By applying a specialized solution, this treatment exfoliates the top layers of your skin, promoting new growth and reducing superficial scars and hyperpigmentation. With options from mild to deep, we tailor the peel to meet your specific needs.

Hydrafacial

Hydrafacial is another option that thoroughly cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and infuses boosters to keep your pores clean. Combining this treatment with BBL further removes bacteria and reduces inflammation, making it a powerful duo!

Topical Treatments and Medications to Treat Acne

Whether your acne is due to overactive oil glands, hormonal changes, diet, or other factors, your dermatologist can prescribe a variety of treatments and medications tailored to address the specific triggers. There is no “one size fits all” treatment regimen, so an in-depth acne consultation is an important first step to clear skin. Combining this with a good acne regimen is your best defense to saying goodbye to acne and the scars that come with it.

Acne scars don’t have to be a permanent reminder of past breakouts. With the right treatments and skin care, you can achieve smoother, clearer skin. Schedule a consultation with Georgia Skin Specialists today and take the first step towards the best skin of your life.
