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.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

March 23rd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until Mid April.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until further notice.
  • The office will be available for Retail and PrePaid Packages as well as to answer any and all questions and concerns.
  • Virtual Consultations are available upon request.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
