Dr Brian Heil and Dr Ana Busquets along with their team of physician assistants and skincare professionals specialize in acne scar removal in Pittsburgh. Our clinicians offer a wide range of treatments and procedures that help patients achieve a more beautiful and even-textured complexion.
Knowing what types of acne scars you have is important in determining which acne scar removal treatment is right for you. First, we will determine what category your acne scars fall under. There are two types of acne scars (where there has been a loss of tissue and the skin literally looks as though there is an indentation in it) and post-inflammatory erythema (the red spots or brown spots left on the skin after active acne lesions disappear). The acne scar treatment options we offer at Premier Plastic Surgery, Dermatology & Acqua Blu Medical Spa for pitted acne scars include laser treatments as well as fillers.
The gold standard treatment for acne scars is laser rejuvenation therapy using the fractional CO2 laser. The fractional CO2 laser targets the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen renewal, which in turn smoothes out acne scars. To target the red and brown spots that remain after acne lesions resolve, we use the intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, which destroy the pigmented red and brown skin cells on the skin, leaving a more uniform and even-toned complexion.
At Premier Plastic Surgery, Dermatology & Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we offer dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to naturally plump up areas of scarring. While dermal fillers offer only a temporary fix for pitted acne scars, they are a great option for those who want to have their scars fixed in a timely manner.
