Bellafill – The an FDA Approved Filler for Acne Scars
Dr. Chang has found the Bellafill treatment to be one of the best tools in her acne scar-fighting arsenal. Before Bellafill, acne scars were primarily treated with a series of laser treatments, possibly in combination with hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. HA fillers worked, but the results weren’t completely satisfying or lasting. Bellafill is different. It is a unique collagen filler with PMMA microspheres that provide instant and lasting results. It stimulates collagen production at the site of the scars, filling them in. Results can last 12 months or more.
SkinFinity -5 Minutes to Smoother Skin
In just 5 minutes, SkinFinity can improve the appearance of all types of acne scars (including atrophic and non-keloidic hypertrophic scars). This device is safe for all skin types and provides immediate, lasting results.
eMatrix or Venus Viva – Gentle, but Powerful Results on Acne Scars
Stimulating collagen production and smoothing scars, eMatrix or the Venus Viva are both an excellent option for treating acne scars. These treatments provide lasting results, with no downtime. You may experience some redness or flaking in the days after treatment, but this should fade quickly.
Fraxel DUAL Laser – Targets Only Damaged Skin for Faster Healing
A fractional laser treatment, the Fraxel DUAL laser targets only damaged skin, leaving the surrounding tissues intact. This speeds healing and reduces downtime (most patients return to their regular activities immediately). This treatment can smooth acne scars.
Micro-Needling – Simple and Effective Treatment for Acne Scars
Micro-needling uses a special device to puncture the skin repeatedly. This controlled wounding stimulates collagen production and boosts the skin’s healing response. Dr. Chang has found that micro-needling can be a highly effective treatment for acne scars, and scientific studies confirm these findings. One study found that micro-needling provided 34 of 36 patients with a reduction of acne scarring by one or two grades with no significant adverse effects. Of these patients, 80% reported the treatment as excellent. Safe, simple, and effective, micro-needling can help you smooth your skin.
