Everyone is prone to acne scarring. But when it comes to treatment, there is no one-size-fits all since all skins are different. Juvederm, Restylane and other hyaluronic acid fillers are known to successfully treat acne scars for some people. Actually, many people turn to fillers for the treatment of deeper scarring with great results. But for shallow surface irregularities, it is recommended that you consider laser treatment and/or micro-needling or skin resurfacing. That said, patients commonly require some components of both for best results. Causes of acne scars Pimple inflammation breakouts harm both the skin and the tissue underneath it.

When seeking any scar treatment, it is common practice to completely control any acne in order to prevent an outbreak that can lessen the merits of the scar treatment. Scarring caused by acne is particularly difficult to treat.

How plasma treatment works Platelet-rich plasma contains autologous growth factors, including platelet-derived growth factor, epidermal growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor, and transforming growth factor, all of which act synergistically with growth factors induced via skin needling to promote wound-healing response.

Acne scars and large pores are rather commonplace. Both can create a lack of self-confidence and make life miserable for sufferers. But there is help! Studies have shown that about 95 per cent of all people who have acne also have some scarring. So, the sooner you get treatment for those scars, the better outcome you’ll have! Both shallow and deep acne scars have been successfully treated using the fractionated laser, which also improves skin texture by shrinking large pores. It can actually reduce acne scars by up to 80 per cent. The laser pokes tiny holes into the skin allowing collagen to re-grow. In fact, fractional laser resurfacing has become the gold standard for laser acne scar removal. The laser gets its name from the fact that just a fraction of the skin is directly treated. Skin that’s not…
