Acne Scar Revision

Acne Scar Revision


Understanding Acne Scars

Acne scars are the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. When the pore swells, it can cause a break in the follicle wall. If the break is deep, the infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers, resulting in acne scars.

Types of Acne Scars

There are several types of acne scars, each
requiring a different treatment approach:

  • Atrophic Scars: Depressed scars that sit below the surface of the surrounding skin, including icepick, boxcar, and rolling scars.
  • Hypertrophic Scars: Raised scars that sit above the surrounding skin, often appearing on the back and chest.
  • Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH): Dark spots that remain after an acne lesion has healed, more common in individuals with darker skin tones.

Advanced Acne Scar Revision Treatments in LA

At Cupid Lips, we offer a range of non-surgical treatments to effectively address various types of acne scars and improve overall skin texture.

Fraxel Dual Laser

Fraxel Dual Laser is a fractional laser treatment that targets both the surface and deeper layers of the skin to improve texture and tone. 

  • How It Works: The laser creates microscopic treatment zones in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. This process helps to smooth out acne scars and improve overall skin texture. 
  • Benefits: Effective for reducing the appearance of all types of acne scars, minimal downtime, and long-lasting results.

Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Microneedling combined with PRP is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates collagen production and accelerates the healing process. 

  • How It Works: A device with fine needles creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin. PRP, derived from your own blood, is applied to enhance the healing process and stimulate collagen production. 
  • Benefits: Improves skin texture, reduces the appearance of acne scars, and promotes overall skin health.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve applying a solution to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and peel off, revealing new, smoother skin underneath.

  • Types of Peels: We offer a range of chemical peels, from mild to deep, depending on the severity of your acne scars and skin type. 
  • Benefits: Reduces the appearance of acne scars, improves skin texture, and promotes a brighter complexion.

Clear + Brilliant® Laser

Clear + Brilliant® is a gentle fractional laser treatment that enhances skin texture and tone, making it an excellent option for treating mild to moderate acne scars.

  • How It Works: The laser creates microscopic treatment zones in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing response and promoting collagen production.
