After years of acne breakouts, the skin on your face may be damaged with visible acne scars. At Aesthera, our team of talented skincare experts can help address acne scars in Pismo Beach to achieve a smoother complexion. Our treatments can help with uneven skin tone, texture, and visible scarring.

What causes acne scars?

Acne may appear during adolescence due to a surge in hormones, but it can affect people at any stage of life. The damage may have left you with unsightly scars that are impossible to camouflage with makeup. The inflammation associated with acne can damage the underlying skin tissue, leaving it discolored and uneven. With our help, you can improve the appearance of visible acne scars and live a happier, more confident life.

How are acne scars treated?

At Aesthera, we know that healthy, glowing skin is a universal sign of vitality and beauty. Our team of accomplished skincare professionals offers the world’s best treatments for visible acne scars. Depending on your skin, the depth of your acne scars, and your aesthetic goals, we may advise one or more of the following treatments:

  • Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Radiesse, or Restylane can be injected to smooth depressed acne scars.
  • SkinPen microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, harnesses the power of your immune system to rejuvenate your complexion. The SkinPen is a handheld device made up of ultra-fine needles. When the device is passed over the surface of your skin, it creates a series of controlled injuries in your skin, triggering natural collagen and elastin production. As your skin begins to heal, smoother, healthier skin is revealed, softening the appearance of acne scars. When combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP), this powerful treatment can dramatically improve skin damaged by acne breakouts.
  • HydraFacial combines the power of hydradermabrasion with infusions of skin-boosting nutrients. A HydraFacial will gently remove environmental debris and dead skin cells from your pores with gentle hydradermabrasion. Simultaneously, it saturates your skin with a tailored blend of antioxidants and peptides to help ward off future breakouts. 
  • A chemical peel can be customized to the depth and strength most appropriate for your skin type. Chemical peels remove the outermost layers of the skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin and a smoother look to acne-scarred skin.

Types of acne scars

The type of scars your skin develops can vary, based on the form of acne you experienced. The five types of acne scars are:

  • Hyperpigmentation: The skin tone has changed in the area affected, looking reddened or darker. 
  • Keloids: Discolored, bumpy skin can appear when the body produces more cells than it needs to heal a blemish.
  • Icepick scars: These scars are almost impossible to hide, as they look like tiny punctures in your skin. These appear most often in people who have experienced cystic acne.
  • Rolling scars: The skin has taken on a wavy, uneven texture. These scars are most common in people who have struggled with long-term acne breakouts.
  • Boxcar scars: These scars are shallow with defined edges, pulling the damaged area downwards, creating a visible depression.

What can I expect in recovery time? 

Our treatments for acne scars are non-invasive, requiring little to no downtime or recovery. With more potent treatments like chemical peels, you may experience temporary swelling, irritation, redness, and peeling, which typically peaks at about day three, after which new skin appears to improve the appearance of acne-damaged skin. Microneedling requires a day or two for recovery, and dermal filler injections and HydraFacials have zero recovery time.
