While acne itself is a frustrating condition, it can leave a footprint long after it’s gone in the form of acne scars. While these shallow pits can continue to be an eyesore, the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center offers a variety of acne scar treatment options to help patients find relief. From laser resurfacing to skincare and maintenance, we can help find the perfect noninvasive treatment for you. With our comprehensive, hands-on approach, you can enjoy among the best acne scar treatment Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have available.

Acne scar treatment options

At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center in Beverly Hills, we understand that patients suffering from acne scars are looking for immediate treatment. For this reason, we have a comprehensive array of treatments to cater to all skin types and colors. Your acne scar treatment begins with a thorough consultation so our practitioners can determine which treatments will best suit your needs. They may have you undergo a single treatment or a combination of treatments to provide the best result.

The acne scar treatment plan recommended will be dependent on several factors, including the type of acne scars you have, whether they are primarily on the surface or extend into the deeper layers of the skin, as well as your skin color and overall skin tone.

How acne scars occur

Acne occurs when skin pores become filled with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The pores becomes inflamed and eventually burst. If the pore wall bursts deeper in the skin, the infected debris leaks into the deep tissues, which creates larger lesions.

Scarring occurs as the body creates collagen to repair the damage. Depending on skin type and other factors, the scarring can be relatively shallow and easy to correct. Where ruptures occur deep in the pore, scarring is more severe. The healing process creates significant changes in the texture and smoothness of the skin, forming deep depressions, or giving the skin a rolling wave-like appearance.

There are two categories of scarring; one type adds tissue, the other type forms around lost tissue.

Hypertrophic scarring is the result of excessive collagen production during healing. Raised bumps or ridges around scars are the result of this over production of healing fiber. Atrophic scarring occurs as tissue is lost in healing.

Common forms of atrophic scarring are ‘ice pick’ and ‘boxcar’ scars. Ice pick scarring creates tiny holes in the skin, while boxcar scars are larger with vertical sides comparable to chicken pox scars.

Your acne scar treatment plan will be customized to address your unique skin landscape. Understand that the deeper more extensive scars will take several treatments and a healthy dose of patience while the skin heals. Superficial scarring will require patience as well. Treatments such as a chemical peel or a laser resurfacing both remove the damaged tissue, allowing the body to replace it with healthy smooth tissue.

Preventing acne scars

For patients who currently have acne, the best treatment for acne scars is preventing them before they occur. Below are two factors that make acne worse, and may contribute to scarring once the acne is gone.

Sun exposure. For both acne and acne scars, direct sunlight can prolong the condition and often make it worse. It is wise to avoid the sun during its peak hours, especially between 10am and 2pm. Sunscreen, hats and other forms of protection are recommended.

Picking and squeezing. While it’s certainly tempting to pop that whitehead, it actually causes further disturbance to the skin. This results in inflammation and collagen loss, which prevents the skin from healing as it should. Additionally, popping a pimple causes the spread of bacteria deeper into the skin.

At 29 years old, I was sick of how acne was still affecting my appearance, even after it was gone. My acne scars on my cheek were constantly pulling my attention away from where it needed to be. When I came to Lasky, I was immediately met with hope and confidence. Pamela was so friendly and accommodating, and Dianne clearly knew exactly what she was doing. I knew that I had to have some patience with my scars, and it’s definitely paid off. After two months, they are so much better than they were before. I’m continuing treatment going forward, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
