What are the Causes and Treatment of Acne Scarring?

Many of us still are forced to deal with the constant appearance of scars even after the acne itself has disappeared. When acne builds they are as embarrassing and irritating as the acne scars are.  Esthetic medicine can provide you with several wonderful treatments that help you to combat these skin issues. You may also get Acne Scar Treatment Toronto from Skin Vitality Medical Clinic for your desired results.

What are the main causes of Acne Scarring?

When skin healing itself from an injury, it causes scars. The bulk of acne – a “superficial wound” – disappear on their own, but when the dermis (one of the internal skin layers) becomes affected, resulting in scars. This happens when the inflammation in a folic or pore (root cause of acne) spread into the dermis layer and, it damages the skin at a non-superficial level.

To fix this damage, the skin produces collagen, which may result in increased tissue scarring (keloid or hypertrophic). However, a depressed scar (boxcar or ice-seal) may develop when tissue loss is too great. It can make the skin affected and it appears pitted or pocked.

How to Treat Acne Scarring?

There are mainly three types of acne scarring treatments that you may get according to your desired results:

  1. Juvéderm Injectable Filler

Juvéderm is the most eminent way to get rid of wrinkles and plump up lips, but did you know it may also fill up scars? The Juvéderm contains hyaluronic acid which contributes to the production of collagen.

  1. Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

It is an option to treat moderate to severe acne scars. The procedure consists of a fractionated beam of intense light energy that is applied to the affected area. It extracts damaged skin cells softly and activates the regeneration process, which also enhances the development of collagen. The skin becomes smoother and clearer as the untreated skin surrounding you. Nevertheless, it is important to note that Fraxel Skin Resurfacing does not cure existing acne (just for acne scars).

  1. Chemical Peels

Skin Vitality has a wide range of chemical peels that help in reducing minor acne scars. The production of collagen is enhanced by chemical peels!  The elevated levels of collagen help to rejuvenate the skin which makes it healthier, firmer and youthful. Gentle exfoliation of the upper layers of the skin leads to clarity and vibrancy.
