What Can I Expect from Acne Scar Treatment?
Based on his years of experience in plastic surgery and acne scar treatment, Dr. Taghizadeh will recommend one or more procedures.
Acne Scar Removal
The overarching goal of acne scar treatment is to trigger the body to develop a softer layering of collagen. Dr. Taghizadeh typically recommends microneedling, CO2 laser resurfacing or a combination of these treatments.
Microneedling involves using a special device that creates micro-injuries to the skin. These tiny injuries are enough to trigger the body into producing more collagen. [READ MORE]
CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Laser technologies have brought a comprehensive range of treatments to the field of aesthetic treatments. CO2 laser resurfacing is a non-surgical solution that relies on laser energy. The energy penetrates the skin and promotes collagen production. Dr. Taghizadeh may also use CO2 laser resurfacing to improve the outer surface of the scar. [READ MORE]
How Much Difference Will I See with Acne Scar Treatment?
Scar tissue is very different when compared to normal skin so acne scar treatment may require several sessions to achieve the desired results. With each treatment, you will see a scar that blends better with surrounding skin both in color and texture.
Recovery from Acne Scar Treatment
Microneedling and CO2 laser resurfacing require a minimum amount of post-treatment care. The most important aspect of recovery is protecting the treatment area from sun exposure and injury.
What Will Acne Scar Treatment Do for My Skin?
The techniques used by Dr. Taghizadeh target the acne scar while preserving the surrounding skin. With each treatment, the acne scar has a smoother appearance and texture. Eventually, you will have to look closely to find your acne scar.
Will Everyone Benefit from Acne Scar Treatment?
Microneedling and CO2 laser resurfacing are safe for patients of all ages. Certain medical conditions and medications may place you at higher risk for developing unwanted side effects. To prevent this, Dr. Taghizadeh will review your medical history as well as any conditions that you are currently treating.
