Say Hello to Beautiful Skin: 5 Skin Treatments For Acne Scars

If you have suffered from severe acne, you may have experienced some scarring. Some of the most typical acne scars include:

  • Boxcar scars: These can be shallow or deep but they usually have sharp angles or edges.
  • Ice-pick scars: Ice-pick scars are deep but small pits.
  • Rolling scars. These tend to be wide and shallow and caused by damage underneath the skin.


Just as there are several different types of acne scars, there are also different types of treatments available for acne scars. During an in-depth consultation, your skin care expert will examine your specific case and suggest a tailored treatment plan depending on the type of damage to your skin, and how severe your scars are.

Some of these acne scar treatments include:

  1. Chemical Peels: Chemical peels will improve the appearance of acne scars by using a specialized chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is typically smoother and less scarred in appearance. (Kelowna Chemical Peels >)

  1. Dermal Fillers: In dermal filler therapy, a filler such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero, or Restylane is injected directly into the acne scars with a very small needle. This will puff up the skin beneath the scar, helping to smooth it out. (Dermal Fillers >)

  1. Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a painless and non-invasive skin treatment during which a special machine applies rough particles to exfoliate the uppermost layer of skin, revealing newer and smoother skin underneath. (Microdermabrasion >)

  1. Microneedling: During a microneedling treatment, your skin care specialist will roll a device covered in tiny needles over your skin. This is a safe and effective way of stimulating the tissue underneath to grow for a smoother and brighter complexion. (Microneedling >)


Fraxel 1927 Non-Ablative Laser Treatment For Acne Scars

Fraxel 1927 is an advanced laser treatment which addresses imperfections of a specific target area such as acne scars. It uses light energy which stimulates the production of collagen in your skin, reinvigorating the skin cells below the surface and smoothing out any unwanted scars and blemishes.

Some of the benefits of this treatment include:

  • It’s non ablative which means that the energy is sent through the treatment area without damaging any layers of the skin.
  • A topical numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment which makes it very tolerable.
  • In addition to treating acne scars, Fraxel laser will stimulate skin renewal, leading to all-around skin rejuvenation.
  • There is very little downtime and since the surface of your skin isn’t compromised, you can return to daily activities. However, your skin may appear sunburnt for 2-3 days.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
