Acne Scars: Put The Past Behind You

Olansky Dermatology Associates logo

Did you suffer from embarrassing acne throughout your teen and young adult years? Are the acne scars left behind a constant reminder of your uphill battle against skin blemishes years ago? There’s good news for you. While acne scars will never just go away on their own, there are many options available to you at your dermatologists office that can rid you of your painful acne past.

What Causes Acne Scars?

An acne scar is caused by collagen and epidermal damage to the skin after recurrent acne problems. An acne scar is a deep or depressed scar that produces a crater-like or orange-peel appearance on the skin, usually the face. It is common for acne scars to also cause a red appearance. You may feel as though your acne scars are just at noticeable and embarrassing as the acne once was.

How Can A Dermatologist Help?

There are many ways that a board certified dermatologist can help reverse the damage that acne has left behind. Since acne is a result of tissue damage, dermal fillers and chemical peels are among common acne scar treatments that can even out your skin tone and texture. Olansky Dermatology Associates proudly offers the latest and most advanced treatment for acne scars, including the following two treatments that effectively reduce red or crate-like acne scar appearances. Both of these procedures are very well tolerated with the use of numbing cream.

  • Rejuvapen Micro Needling: This state-of-the-art treatment uses tiny micro needle perforations to stimulate the skins natural healing, which increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin and improves the appearance of acne scarring.
  • Fraxel Laser Treatments: Tiny columns of laser energy is concentrated to penetrate the dermal layers of your skin, effectively breaking the bonds of scars and allowing your skin to produce new collagen. Fraxel Laser treatments can significantly improve acne scars and your overall skin texture.

It is very possible that your specific acne scars may need a combination of treatments as well as repetitive treatments to fully restore even-toned and smooth facial skin. Regardless of the severity of your acne scars, it is most important that you realize the advanced treatment options available to you today and take advantage of these solutions so that you can finally be confident in your skin. When it comes to choosing acne scar treatment, choose the best so that you can put the worst behind you!

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
