Most people experience acne in their teens and even into adulthood. These small skin infections can come and go, but they can also leave behind scars. Severe acne breakouts can create scar tissue that changes the skin’s appearance permanently. If you have pockmarked skin from acne or dark acne scars, it can impact your self-confidence and appearance. At Vantage Plastic Surgery, we offer acne scar removal treatments at our clinics in UES Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Not all acne scars are the same. The type of acne, the skin of the patient and other factors can determine the type and severity of scarring. Deeper acne cysts can result in more scar tissue forming or cause indented ice pick scars. The skin can be left with darkened patches of scars or uneven texture from years of acne breakouts. Acne scar removal can fade dark scars and smooth the texture of the skin to create a more attractive, healthy appearance.

Treatments for Acne Scars

While you can hide dark acne scars with makeup, indented or atrophic acne scars are hard to hide. Both men and women can struggle with acne scarring on their face and even areas on their body like their shoulders that can make them feel self-conscious. There are a few different treatments that can be effective in fading scars and smoothing the skin surface. These include:

  • Chemical peels
  • Laser treatments
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Dermabrasion
