While most people think acne is a nuisance, it’s a much bigger problem for you. You have had severe acne that has been chronic. Even when you manage to take care of any flare ups, it’s too late to stop the damage that has been left behind. Acne scarring can be disfiguring. It can leave your face with dark red and purple blotches that never go away. Living with acne scars can be so damaging to your self-esteem that you try to hide. Cosmetics can only do so much. You want to find a way to eliminate your scars. Consider your options at Longevity Aesthetics and Laser Spa.
Try Topical Products
Our skin care specialist is likely to recommend the least invasive approach when you want to eliminate your acne scars. Topical products that contain alpha hydroxy acids, lactic acid, retinoids, and saliclyic acid can make your acne scars look less noticeable. They can cleanse your pores, smooth the surface of your skin, get rid of dead skin, and help your skin to regenerate itself more effectively. You should include sunscreen in your daily regimen in order to protect your skin from additional damage since a sunburn can make your acne scars become more pronounced.
Chemical Peels Can Improve the Appearance of Your Skin
When you need to go beyond topical treatments, your dermatologist may recommend a chemical peel. This treatment will remove the top layer of your skin, exfoliating and eliminating skin that has been damaged by scarring to reveal the healthy skin beneath the surface. Chemical peels require very little downtime and tend to keep skin irritation to a minimum.
Try Fillers or Injections
Fillers and injections offer you more options to treat acne scars. They lift the surface of the skin to make it look more even when you have depressions caused by severe acne. Longevity offers Bellafill® to address your acne scarring needs.
