Atrophic acne scars are characterized by their indented appearance on the skin. These scars form when the skin doesn’t produce enough collagen during the wound-healing process, resulting in indents or divots in the skin. Thus, the best atrophic acne scar treatments help to stimulate the skin to produce more collagen to “fill in” these indents.
Morpheus8 combines the collagen-inducing power of radiofrequency waves and microneedling technology to offer one of the most advanced skin rejuvenating treatments. Morpheus8 treats atrophic acne scars by stimulating collagen and cell renewal in the deeper layers of the skin.
While many see optimal results after a single Morpheus8 treatment session, up to three sessions may be needed to maximize your results.
CO2 Laser Peel
The CO2 Laser Peel also treats atrophic acne scars by stimulating collagen production. This fractional ablative laser treatment removes the outer layer of skin while simultaneously triggering the skin’s natural healing process.
Fractional lasers deliver targeted laser energy to precise areas of the skin, making them an excellent choice for acne scar treatment. A single CO2 Laser Peel treatment is typically sufficient to deliver optimal results.
Injectable dermal fillers can physically “fill in” deep indents in the skin caused by acne scarring. Although temporary, dermal fillers can last for a year or more, depending on the type of filler used.
In some cases, a combination of multiple acne scar treatment options can deliver the most comprehensive results. Call our Ann Arbor office at 734-971-0262 or get in touch online to schedule a consultation to discuss your specific needs and goals with one of our experienced skincare experts.
