What causes acne scars? acne scars cincinnati

Acne scars are the lingering result of your body’s attempt to heal inflammation and infections. Blemishes form when the pores become clogged and swell. Sometimes these will burst, allowing the debris to spill out and destroy the surrounding tissue. Your body responds by rapidly creating new collagen fibers to replace the ones that were infected. Unfortunately, these are generally not as smooth or elastic as the original fibers. The different texture and lack of elasticity is what causes the appearance of scars on the surface of the skin.

Treatments for acne scars

  • Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Radiesse, can help to fill in atrophic scars and smooth out your skin. Both of these include a gel-like substance which helps immediately lift the skin. Radiesse, however, also includes calcium microspheres which help stimulate the production of new collagen over time.
  • Chemical peels: These treatments involve applying a chemical solution to create a controlled peel of the top layer of skin. This can help to shed the top layer of damaged skin while simultaneously stimulating the production of new, more elastic collagen. This offers long term improvements in the appearance of acne scars with limited follow up treatments required.
  • Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a physical exfoliation treatment which uses microscopic crystals to remove the top layer of skin. Like chemical peels, this then encourages the body to increase production of new collagen. Results from microdermabrasion treatments may take a few weeks to appear.
