Most Effective Acne Scarring Treatments

Many of us have the same goal when it comes to skincare—to have clear, healthy-looking skin. It’s nothing short of a dream to be able to rock your bare skin while feeling confident and radiant. The problem is, sometimes achieving a clear complexion is anything but simple, especially if you’ve struggled with acne. Not only is the actual acne a pain to manage and heal, but then you’re faced with the stubborn scars that are often left behind.

When you put in the hard work of treating your acne from the inside out to be free from those pesky blemishes, you deserve to be free from your scars, too! Like treating acne, treating acne scarring is a progressive process. Here’s our list of effective professional-grade treatments we recommend if you’re embarking on your journey to clear, acne scarring free skin!

The most effective acne scarring treatments include:

  1. Chemical Peels

Chemical peels help to rejuvenate the skin by removing the top layer of the skin and promoting the production of collagen. This helps to lighten dark spots and fill in acne scars with the new collagen. Not to mention this treatment unclogs pores to help prevent any future breakouts.

  1. Microneedling

Like Chemical Peels, Microneedling also removes the top layer of skin while promoting healthy collagen production. However, there are other benefits to Microneedling that individuals with acne scarring may find particularly helpful. These benefits include treating large pores, active acne, discoloration/pigmentation, skin texture issues and acne scars.

  1. 1540 Laser Therapy

This non-invasive laser uses microbeams that penetrate the top and mid layers of the skin to stimulate the body’s healing response to create new tissue and collagen. The minimal downtime for this treatment is a bonus.

  1. Diamond Glow

Diamond Glow is a dermal infusion, which is an advanced skin- resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of condition–specific serums to improve skin health, function, and appearance. This is similar to microdermabrasion only BETTER!

  1. Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive treatment that exfoliates your skin by removing the top layer and any dirt buildup and ‘peach fuzz.’ Removing the buildup of dead skin helps to minimize any surface appearance of scars.

 If you’re struggling with stubborn acne scars, the good news is that you have options.

Leave the pimple popping to the experts!
