Best Cleveland Acne Scars Treatment | Facial Plastic Surgeon

Treatment for Acne Scars in Cleveland, Ohio

Once your skin clears up, it’s hard to celebrate if scarring is left behind. Acne scars can be treated with various methods depending on severity, number, and location. Acne scar treatment dramatically improves the appearance of the skin, and while it cannot erase the evidence of acne completely, it can transform your skin and confidence.

What causes acne scars?

Acne scars develop most commonly from cystic or nodular acne, leaving deep pits in the skin. If the skin tends to develop keloids, acne scarring can be especially noticeable. Aggressive picking at more moderate acne can also cause scarring, though typically less severe.

Can plastic surgery help with acne scarring?

Different methods of skin resurfacing are effective for acne scar treatment. Dermabrasion removes the top layer of skin and softens the appearance of the scar by stimulating collagen production and organization. A medium or deep chemical peel is often used for the treatment of sun damage and skin blemishes. Laser resurfacing can stimulate collagen and elastic fibers, promoting healing and new skin growth. Microneedling also offers gradual improvements in scar appearance with minimal downtime.

Punch excision is a more focused, minor procedure to address individual acne scars, repairing the wound with stitches or a skin graft. Another technique called subcision involves your doctor inserting needles under the skin to loosen fibers below a scar, to help improve its appearance.

Dermal Fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane are popular treatments for acne scars. Fillers can reduce the appearance of a certain type of scars, improving the overall texture of your skin.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure).

I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
