Cleveland area patients ask about the benefits of microdermabrasion for acne scars
Acne is a condition that can affect men and women of all ages. Even after acne has been addressed, it may leave acne scars. Acne scars can be deep or rolling divots in the skin that are caused by old blemishes. Acne scars can negatively affect the texture of the skin and make patients feel extremely self-conscious about their appearance after they have controlled their acne.
At Seriously Skin in Cleveland, we understand that many patients who visit our practice seeking treatment for acne scars have tried everything available over-the-counter to improve their skin. Getting help through our practice is the first step. In many cases, our team may suggest the benefits of microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is done to rejuvenate the skin with a unique method of exfoliation. It does not use any chemicals and it is considered a non-invasive procedure. It sprays microcrystals onto the skin for exfoliation to eliminate the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This can reveal more youthful, beautiful skin and reduce the depth of acne scars that may be affecting the texture of the skin.
Microdermabrasion is a popular choice for patients who have mild acne scarring on their face, and our team of professionals at Seriously Skin will consult with patients to find out if this treatment would be beneficial. We can provide an evaluation of the skin to discuss if the texture is affected by acne scars and assess their depth. Mild acne scars will benefit from microdermabrasion, while more severe, “ice pick” scars may be better suited for injectable dermal fillers, which can add volume and reduce their appearance. Knowing what is best for our patients is our specialty!
We welcome new patients into our practice to learn about the many ways in which we can rejuvenate their appearance and address aesthetic issues that may be troublesome to both men and women who want to look their best!
