The only thing worse than having a face full of pimples is the unsightly scars they leave behind. Long after your teenage acne has (finally) gone away, you may still feel embarrassed or self-conscious about the acne scars on your face, chest, or back. Is there anything that you can do to get rid of them?
The answer is yes! There are actually several common and well-regarded treatments available. At MedX, we help minimize the look of acne scars for many clients. Your specific treatment will depend on the nature of your scars, such as their location and depth. Our treatments include chemical peels, dermabrasion, and microdermabrasion, which will gently take off the top layer of the skin. These treatments work very well for lighter acne scars and can help minimize the look of deeper scars. If your scars are deep, laser treatments can slowly help the skin to heal. Finally, in more severe cases, we may actually recommend using soft tissue fillers to fill out the scars. While fillers are not a permanent solution, they do offer long-term results.
