Acne Scars


Acne scars come in many forms, and are one of the hardest cosmetic concerns to treat. It takes multiple staged treatments over time with often more than one approach. While 100% correction is not guaranteed, you can expect to see a 40-70% improvement.

There are many different types of acne scarring, and each has different treatment options. Boxcar scars are small and superficial--similar to chickenpox scars--and usually have defined edges. These types of scars can be treated with the Erbium resurfacing laser, the Encore CO2 Fractional laser, fillers, collagen induction therapy, or chemical peels.

Rolling scars are deep dermis and cause the skin to tether and be pulled down, much like a cellulite dimple. This type of scar is treated with a combination of surgical subcision and fillers, while surgical revision is sometimes necessary.

Ice pick scars are narrow, deep, punched-out scars. They normally require a combination treatment approach including surgical revision, collagen induction therapy, and TCA cross-therapy.

Sometimes, people often mistake discolorations as "acne scars," but they are merely changes in skin color. Treatment options for discolorations on the skin are different from treatments or acne scarring.

The atmosphere is very welcoming with very competent and friendly faces greeting you at check-in. Dr. Retief is patient and thorough in her exam—answering any questions or concerns. Great place that I would recommend to anyone!
