Acne Treatments

At the Knight Dermatology Institute, we are frequently asked if anything can be done for old acne scars. This condition, a result of previous nodular/cystic acne, is emotionally taxing for many patients. Fortunately, we do have several weapons in the fight against this disfiguring condition. Modern acne scar treatment options include laser treatments, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and surgical treatments such as subcision, punch grafting, CROSS therapy, and formal excision.

Laser Treatments

Laser surgery is one of the most successful means of treating acne scars. The fractional CO2 laser (Lumenis™ FX) is the latest device used to treat this condition, and the results are often stunning. We are seeing results far superior to those seen with older devices (such as Fraxel, CoolTouch, Smoothbeam, N-lite, etc).

Our Pulse Dye laser (Candela VBeam) is also effective in treating some forms of acne scarring, especially if there is a red or vascular component to the lesions. When combined with Aminolevulinic Acid (called photodynamic therapy), the Pulse Dye laser also shows good results in patients who still have active acne breakouts. Studies show that this procedure can reduce the size of oil glands, helping to eliminate both scars and active acne lesions.

Microdermabrasion Treatment for Removal of Acne Scars

Microdermabrasion works by exfoliating the superficial layers of skin. This process works well with more recent scars and generally takes several treatments to see results. Chemical peels cause the outer layer of the skin to peel, revealing newer, smoother skin. Peels can be superficial, medium, or deep depending on the level of scarring and the desired result.
