What Are Acne Scars?

If you’ve ever had acne, you know that the scars it can leave behind are often more than just physical.

Acne scarring, whether severe, moderate or mild, can cause embarrassment and self-esteem issues including depression. The psychological, social and physical effects are not to be underestimated – at any age. With approximately 90% of all teenagers suffering from acne and 1 in 4 adults between the ages of 25 and 44 suffering from regular breakouts, acne scarring is an extremely common problem.

Determining what treatment(s) would be most effective for your skin depends upon multiple factors, such as the severity of scarring, tendency toward future scarring, skin pigmentation, hormonal status, and age.

At a consultation appointment, Dr. Marotta will evaluate your skin, take all factors into consideration, and help you devise a skin-care treatment plan that will transform your skin into the beautiful, healthy picture you have always envisioned it to be. While there is no cure for acne, the good news is that the scarring and hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration) caused by acne can be treated and corrected. A variety of treatments are available and may be used in conjunction with one another to achieve maximum results. These treatments include:

  • Laser Treatments
  • Micro-needling
  • Dermabrasion
  • Chemical Peels
  • Filler Injections
  • Surgically cutting out the scar (for severely deep marks) and repairing the hole
