How to Get Rid of Acne Scars

Living with acne scars on your face can make you feel self-conscious. Fortunately, at The Vascular Experts Florida, we offer a range of effective acne scar treatments that allow you to reduce their visibility. 

Acne Scars Windermere

Acne Scar Overview

Acne scars occur when acne blemishes become irritated and inflamed. The acne pore swells, causing a breakdown of tissue on the walls of the pore. The contents of the pore then spill out into the surrounding tissues, causing more prominent scars. 

There are two main types of acne scars that may affect you. The first are raised scars that protrude from skin on the rest of the face. These occur when the skin creates too many new layers of collagen to help repair the wound left by the damaged pore. The second are indentation scars. These occur when there is a net loss of tissue from the region, following an acne flare-up. 

Effective Acne Scar Treatments

Acne scarring need not be permanent. At The Vascular Experts Florida, we offer a range of treatment options, designed to help the skin return to its natural, healthy state. 

Halo™ Laser Skin Resurfacing

Halo™ Lasers are a hybrid fractional laser system offering both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths that target scarred tissue both at the surface and in deeper layers of the skin.

Halo™ is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It works by delivering ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment area. The ablative technology exfoliates tissue in the top layer of the skin to accelerate healing and skin rejuvenation, while the non-ablative technology heats the dermal tissue and stimulates new collagen. The wavelengths target the scar tissue at the same time and trigger skin renewal, which reduces the appearance of acne scars. 

Applying both types of wavelengths to the same treatment zone provides optimal results and reduces downtime. 

Halo™ not only improves acne scars it also addresses uneven skin tone, rough texture, and enlarged pores. 

This treatment is suitable for virtually every skin type, making it one of the most popular options here at The Vascular Experts Florida. 

Halo™ provides predictable results within just 1-2 treatments, but more treatments may be required to remodel acne scars. And because it relies on laser technology, it is wholly non-invasive. Patients can wear make-up again within 24 and return to work within a couple of days.

BBL™ Broadband Light Therapy

BBL™ Broadband Light Therapy is another popular treatment which, like Halo™, treats a range of common skin complaints, including acne scars. The treatment works by gently heating the upper layers of the skin and stimulating the production of collagen. The effect of the light on skin cells changes their expression at the molecular level, encouraging them to do some “housekeeping” and repair acne damage better than before. The result is reduced visible scarring and smoother-looking skin. 

BBL™ sessions are quick and can be performed in as little as two to five minutes. Sciton – the company that developed the treatment – offers BBL™ with CoolComfort™ Technology. Sapphire crystals and sensors continually monitor the temperature of the skin and keep the application comfortable. 

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling is an advanced technology that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microscopic microneedles. The powerful combination is an effective treatment for acne scars, skin laxity, uneven skin tone, and more. At The Vascular Experts, we use the Virtue RF Microneedling system. 

Virtue RF creates microscopic channels in the skin and simultaneously delivers RF energy to the deep dermal layer. Together, they promote the production of new collagen that smooths the skin and diminishes the appearance of acne scars. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Acne Scar Treatments?

If you have acne scars, you are likely a good candidate for acne scar treatments. Halo™ laser is suitable for virtually every skin type, including patients with darker tones. Likewise BBL™ is suitable for most patients. Dr. Lina Vargas and the team at The Vascular Experts Florida can direct you to the treatment best suited for you.
