Acne is a common problem that not only affects teens but also those who fall in other age groups owing to stress and poor lifestyle. It can lead to multiple complications including stubborn pimple scars on neck, forehead, cheeks, chin, and other places along with pigmentation that tends to stay forever.

At Forever MedSpa & Wellness Center we offer the best methods for acne scars and pigment management and ensure your beauty remains untarnished and devoid of any flaws. The treatment of acne scars as done by us has been discussed in detail.
There are quite a few different types of acne scars that you must be aware of so as to ensure proper treatment for your scars. Acne scars that are deep with low surface area and look like wide deep pores or deep holes are known as ice pick scars. Box shaped deep scars are the ones which are deep with steep walls and look like a box. Atrophic scars are thin, stretchable, and depressed areas which when stretched will look like a full correction. The visibility of these scars would increase if there is redness or pigmentation. So you need to opt for the best acne scar treatment in New Jersey that suits your skin and maximize the benefit from this treatment.
Now that you are aware of the various types of acne scars, have a look at the following treatments or combinations that we use to help in the disappearance of these acne scars that otherwise can become a permanent condition. Box scars and Ice pick scars are initially treated and brought to the shallowness of the atrophic scars and then the treatment modality is similar.
- Box Scars/Ice Pick Scars Treatment
This type of scar is deep and firm and cannot be stretched or filled with fillers, hence the only method to treat it is by increasing the amount of collagen in the depths of the scar. TCA cross which is 50% to 100% TCA when applied directly within the depth, creates a controlled burn. The subsequent healing process generates collagen right where it is needed. The layer eventually gets covered with skin epidermis. Sometimes more than one treatment is required to fill in the scars completely and properly. People with skin type 4 and above will need to be on skin lightening regimen prior and during this treatment.
- Atrophic Scars Treatment
Atrophic scars are thin, stretchable, and depressed areas which when stretched will look like full correction. These scars are treated by creating a pull around the scar at the level of the dermis by generating collagen, simultaneously breaking the tightness of the scar. This is carried out with radio-frequency provided by special micro needles (RFMN). These micro needles provide the specific depth of the treatment along with breaking the tightness of the scars. RFMN can be ablative or non-ablative and the former provides better results but has longer downtime and can be done only in skin type 1-3. Hence clients need more treatments in the range of 3-6 but could be done in all skin types with shorter downtime. At Forever Medspa & Wellness Center best drugstore acne scar treatment is done effectively and produces finest results.
- Intense Pulse Light or IPL
This treatment is used when the scar base has redness. This redness comes from tiny capillaries that generate within the scar. These scars will have episodes of increased or decreased visibility depending on how these capillaries react to the simulations around. IPL can target colors like red, brown and black and hence can act on these capillaries. They get inflamed and either react with blanching or temporarily increase visibility but eventually lead to reduction in the redness at the base of the scar and reduce distinction from the surrounding skin. Acne Scar Treatment Laser doesn’t change the structure of the scar and offers favorable results.
- Bellafill or Hyaluronic Acid Filler
Bellafill is a type of injectable cosmetic dermal filler that is used for improving the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and acne scars. Hyaluronic Acid filler is also used to reduce the appearance of acne scars and help in reducing fine lines, skin folds, and adds volume to the face. Both the fillers can be used on the cheeks, nose, lips, chin, and around the mouth depending upon the requirement and are FDA approved. Subcision, which is a process of undermining the scar with a sharp needle, is also required at times prior to the use of these fillers on skin. The entire procedure can take from a few minutes to an hour.
- Other Treatments
Micro needling done at depth in every 4-6 weeks for 8-12 sessions can also produce visible improvement in scar reduction and this could be further added to above treatments in between. Micro needling gives rise to collagen and reduces tightness primarily through mechanical damage without any controlled thermal damage as in RFMN. Skin peels like VI Peels or Salicylic acid peels are also done every 6 weeks so that they can complement the above treatment and produce desirable outcomes.
