Have you achieved the clear skin you have always wanted, but frustrating acne still left marks behind? Are your unhappy with the impact these blemishes are having on your skin? Acne scarring is common for those who have lived with chronic acne, but this does not have to be a permanent condition. Learn more about acne scars and your treatment options during a consultation with our team at Metro Dermatology at one of our New York offices in Elmhurst, Flushing, and the Bronx, or our office in Englewood, New Jersey.
What Causes Acne Scarring?
Acne is an extremely common skin condition typically caused by clogged pores. This may be due to a presence of too much oil, P. acnes bacteria, or dead skin cells. When there is an excess of any of these items, a shallow lesion may be formed and break the follicle wall. Your body should naturally be able to heal and repair itself, but if it is unable to, this can result in acne scarring.
How Is Acne Scarring Treated?
Acne scarring is largely caused by your body not being able to heal itself. When trying to heal a scar, your body’s natural collagen and elastin production processes are activated. Collagen and elastin fibers are essential to providing structure to your skin. However, these natural processes may be underperforming, and processes stimulating collagen production can help reduce the appearance of acne scars.
There is not a one-size-fits-all treatment option for acne scarring. With the help of our team, you can better understand the needs of your skin. There are a variety of prescriptions or laser treatments that can help even skin tone and texture. These treatments can also help enhance your natural beauty by brightening your skin!
Am I a Good Candidate?
Acne scarring treatment options are designed to be safe and effective for all skin tones and types. However, the nature of your acne scar can make an impact on what is the best treatment option for you. A consultation with our qualified team can help you better understand your skin and the best methods to enhance your natural beauty.
It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for any acne scarring treatment option. Results will vary for each person and treatment method, but the ultimate goal is to help you have clear, smooth skin. This may even help you have healthier skin!
