Our Approach to Treating Acne Scarring
Almost everyone will struggle with acne at some point in their life. Sadly, when acne is not treated promptly, acne scarring may develop. Acne scarring, which can occur in 10% of patients struggling with acne, is an unfortunate complication of acne and for many is a painful reminder of previous acne. Acne scars can be emotionally and psychologically distressing and acne scarring has been linked to poor self esteem, depression, anxiety, altered social interactions and body image issues.
At Washington Square Dermatology, acne scarring treatments are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments that we provide. Different skin types and different types of acne scars may require a combination treatment approach. At Washington Square Dermatology, we are fortunate to offer the full range of available acne scarring treatments to precisely target your type of scarring for your skin tone.
We LOVE seeing the huge impact we make in our patients’ confidence as their acne scars improve!
