Acne Scarring

Northwest Aesthetics offers a comprehensive array of acne scarring treatments and medical grade skin care products 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. 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.

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.
