At Celibre Medical, we understand the treatment of acne scarring. Our providers are highly trained in the identification of the many different types of acne scars. They understand the unique and different facets of each type of scar and therefore, they know how to choose and implement the most effective treatment strategy for your specific case.
For example, if you suffer with textured acne scars, we may choose a combination of laser resurfacing, kenalog (or steroid) injections and dermal filler injections to fully address all of your concerns and give your skin a smoother appearance.
Typically, we will choose fractional ablative laser resurfacing for smaller, deeper and pinpoint appearing scars such as ice pick and boxcar scars. We will go after more raised, fibrotic scars using kenalog injections, which softens and smooths out the scar tissue. Lastly, we can treat depressed or atrophic scars by adding volume. Dermal filler products such as Restylane and Perlane are great choices that fit the bill.
What about colored scars? We can use a variety of lasers, like our pulsed dye laser for vascular, red appearing scars. Darker or more pigmented scars may respond to either topical bleaching products like hydroquinone or our q-switched laser, since it targets melanin, the pigment made by the overactive melanocytes.
While many of these treatments have little or no downtime at all, our laser resurfacing procedure will require you to take 4-7 days of downtime for recovery.
At Celibre, we have a large selection of effective weapons to fight acne scars. We also have highly skilled, trained providers who have experience with all these treatments to tailor a plan that’s right for you! Please give us a call for your free consultation today.
