Acne Scars

Acne is a common skin condition and sometimes one of the most traumatic elements of our teenage years. Eventually, either through treatment or time, we will outgrow the development of new pimples but in some patients the permanent scarring that is left behind is as a troublesome reminder of those turbulent years. Treatment of any type of scar, and especially acne scars, requires a well trained physician who can identify the type of scarring that has taken place and the most appropriate treatment.

Many types of acne scars may persist, ranging from the deep pits of “ice-pick” scars, the angulated “box car” scars, to the undulating “rolling” scars. Each of these types of scars requires a different treatment combination to obtain optimal results. Permanent facial scars are traumatic enough and we believe you need a physician that you can trust to provide the expertise to maximally improve your skin.

A Combination Approach

Scars of all types, traumatic, accidental, acne, old and new, can often benefit from treatment. Treatments include intralesional or topical therapies, fillers, needling, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It is also very important to recognize which scars will not improve and Dr. Sterling will provide the education and understanding to help you make the best decision on whether or not to treat.

Fortunately most scars do improve and Dr. Sterling has a wide armetarium in which to treat all types of scars. Dr. Sterling regularly performs surgical revisions and excisions, trichloracetic acid cross technique for ice pick scars, fillers, needling, dermabrasion, and laser treatments. Treatment often requires a combination approach and may result in excellent improvement even for the most troubling scars.
