Acne Scar Removal

Acne scars are challenging to treat. There are many treatment options available to improve acne scars depending on the type and severity of the scarring. At Réviance® Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center, we offer several options for acne scar removal in Portland.

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne causes inflamed blemishes to form on different areas of the skin like the face. This is a result of pores becoming clogged with oil, debris, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The damage caused by acne and inflamed pores can result in the formation of acne scars.

What Are the Different Kinds of Acne Scars?

  • Rolling acne scars: soft, shallow, and wide
  • Boxcar acne scars: have the appearance of large open pores
  • Ice pick acne scars: deep, narrow pits in the skin

Treatment depends on the location, depth, and severity of the scarring. Usually, several sessions are required combining different modalities including laser resurfacing, surgical excision of scars, and dermal fillers.

What To Expect

What to expect during your recovery following your acne scar removal treatment in Portland will depend on the type of treatment performed. With dermal filler, there is no downtime required and only some mild swelling, bruising, and redness can occur.

Certain chemical peels can leave the skin feeling sensitive, as well as other options like laser peels. It will be important to protect your skin from direct sunlight following your treatment.
