Acne Procedures

Punch Grafting

Dermal Grafting

Subcision

Deep narrow fibrous scars ("large pores") are first removed. They are replaced by a tiny "punch graft" or smooth skin, taken from behind the ear.
Fibrous bands pulling down on sunken acne scars may be interrupted by SUBCISION, allowing them to become less deep. Then, a "filler" of the patient's own tissue is inserted underneath these scars to keep the bands from reattaching.
Subcision can help to release soft, broad acne scars and help them to float closer to the surface of your skin, lessening the shadowed effect.

Autologous Collagen

Fat Injection

Dermasanding

The patient's own collagen or tissue can be processed and injected under some softer acne scars.
The deepest soft scars can be raised with fat taken from the patient's body, and implanted underneath the scar.
The skin surface can be smoothed with dermasanding, dermabrasion, or peeling. This area heals in a few days.

Dry Ice

Microdermabrasion

Laser Treatment

Dry ice consists of the application of solid carbon dioxide mixed with acetone in order to gradually reduce the scars. These treatments are performed every 2 to 3 weeks in the office. There is no "recovery time" with this treatment.
Microdermabrasion consists of a stream of aluminum oxide crystals that gradually smooths the skin, cleans out the pores, treats acne, and helps to treat very fine lines and dark spots on the skin. There also is no "down time" with this procedure.
Ultrapulsed laser therapy (carbon dioxide) can be beneficial for large pores and milder acne scarring, especially on the cheeks.
