Acne Scarring


What is Acne Scarring?

Acne scarring refers to the permanent marks or indentations that remain on the skin after severe or prolonged acne breakouts. When acne lesions become inflamed, they can damage the surrounding skin tissues, leading to scarring. Acne scars can vary in appearance, including raised or depressed areas, and can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem and confidence.
There are different types of acne scars, including:
The severity and extent of acne scarring can vary from person to person, and treatment options depend on factors such as the type of scars, skin type, and individual goals.

What is the process?

The process of acne scarring involves several key factors:

Effective treatment of active acne reduces scarring risk. Existing acne scars can be improved with options like creams, chemical peels, laser therapy, and more. Treatment choice depends on scar type and severity, personalized by Dr. Chahin and 90210 Aesthetics. Consult one of the members of our care team for a tailored plan.

Benefits of Acne Scar Treatment

Improved skin texture

Acne scars often result in an uneven skin texture, with depressions, indentations, or raised areas. Treating acne scars can help smoothen the skin’s surface, resulting in a more even and refined texture.

Enhanced appearance

Acne scars can be visually distracting and may make individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance. By reducing or eliminating acne scars, individuals can achieve a more aesthetically pleasing and confident look.

Increased self-confidence

Acne scars can affect a person’s self-esteem and how they feel about themselves. Treating acne scars can help individuals regain their self-confidence and improve their overall quality of life.

Restoration of skin health

Acne scars can be a reminder of past skin damage and inflammation. By addressing acne scars, the skin’s health and integrity can be restored, allowing individuals to enjoy healthier and rejuvenated skin.

Makeup application

Severe acne scarring can make it challenging to apply makeup smoothly and achieve desired coverage. Treating acne scars can provide a smoother canvas for makeup application, allowing individuals to achieve better cosmetic results.
