Acne Scars

Acne Scars Treatment and Prevention

Anyone who has had acne has probably had at least minor acne scarring. Acne scars can range from minor blemishes to deep and noticeable scars, and can cause distress while affecting your self-esteem.

If you’re dealing with acne scars which aren’t going away on their own, there are treatment options available.

What are Acne Scars?

Acne scars are the result of inflammation caused by acne. When a pimple forms, it can occasionally cause damage to the skin’s tissue, leaving behind scars.

Dermatologists have classified acne scars into 5 primary types:

  • Icepick Scars: Deep and narrow, extending into the skin’s dermis
  • Boxcar Scars: Wide and shallow with a defined edge
  • Rolling Scars: Wide and shallow with an irregular, rolling appearance
  • Atrophic Scars: Flat and thin, depressing into the skin
  • Hypertrophic Scars: Thick and lumpy

Acne Scars Treatment Options

The ideal treatment will depend on the type of acne scarring you’re facing.

At Prime Youth Aesthetics, we specialize in using medical grade peels or occasionally dermal fillers for scarring that is particularly deep.

We’ll always begin with an expert consultation to find which treatment is best for you, and provide you with any additional skin care resources we can. Click on an image below to learn more about our specific services.

Acne Scars Prevention

Compared to most other aesthetic conditions we treat, acne scars are much more preventable.

Most prevention comes down to preventing acne from forming in the first place. The most important tips include:

  • Avoid picking or popping pimples
  • Washing your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser
  • Eat a healthy diet and stay hydrated
  • Use high quality skin care products
  • Wear sunscreen
