Acne & Acne Scar Treatment in CT

Often associated with puberty and teenagers, acne can cause self-consciousness, become painful and inflamed, and cause scarring.

Our skin experts provide a number of personalized treatment plans designed to combat acne scarring and provide advice on combating active acne.

What Is Acne?

Acne is a common condition involving skin follicles blocked by oil and dead skin cells, causing spots or pimples. In some cases, larger cyst-like spots can form, and bacteria can trigger further infection and inflammation. While acne often appears during puberty due to hormonal changes, people of any age can have acne.

What Causes Acne Scars?

One of the unfortunate residual effects of acne is scarring – which can be caused by inflammation, the bursting of nodules or cysts, picking or squeezing any spots, or any personal predisposition to acne scars. Scarring can appear as raised spots, or may create small divots in the skin, sometimes known as ‘icepick scars’.

What Treatments Are Available for Acne and Acne Scars?

Most of our treatments focus on minimizing the appearance of acne scars, and in most cases, aren’t suitable for those with active acne, or who are on treatments such as Accutane. However, our skin experts are happy to offer advice for treating acne and facial rejuvenation treatments

Laser Treatment for Acne Scars

Our non-ablative laser resurfacing treatment is one of the most effective treatments to reduce and even resolve acne scars. Laser treatments dramatically decrease scars – even profound ones – repair damaged skin, and improve overall skin tone.

Chemical Peel for Acne Scars

Despite its name, chemical peels use organic compounds to create a deep exfoliation. The damaged outer layer of skin flakes away over several days, revealing fresh, rejuvenated, youthful skin – improving texture and tone and the appearance of scars.

RF Microneedling for Acne Scars

Microneedling utilizes small, fine needles to create ‘micro wounds’ on the skin – stimulating the skin’s natural healing process while activating the production of collagen and elastin to tighten and tone the skin. The addition of targeted radiofrequency energy supercharges this treatment.
