Medical Treatment of Acne Scars

Acne-scarred skin appears reddened, unevenly colored, pitted, or bumpy.

Because the skin has been damaged, it is impossible to camouflage acne scars with cosmetics. At B+A Medical Aesthetics, we offer several treatments to restore a smooth, even-toned look to acne-scarred skin.

Our acne scar treatments are directed by two onsite, board-certified surgeons who are dedicated to helping patients feel their best.

Types of Acne Scars

The type and extent of your scars will determine which treatments will produce the best result for you. Acne scars appear in several forms:

Ice-pick scars
These scars appear as a narrow pit on the skin’s surface.

Rolling scars
These scars create depressions in the skin surface, with an undefined edge.

Boxcar scars
These depressions have a defined edge.

Atrophic scars
These scars are flat, thin, or depressed.

At B+A Medical Aesthetics, we perform custom acne scar correction and may advise a combination of treatments, based on the condition of your skin.


Some deeper acne scars can be smoothed with an injection of a dermal filler. Our injection specialist uses a meticulous injection technique to give deep acne scars a smooth look. The treatment must be repeated as the filler is absorbed, but it lasts for several months.

IPL Photofacial

IPL, or “intense pulsed light,” has proven to improve skin quality and make acne scars less visible. The treatment involves bursts of intense light energy, applied to the affected area to treat unevenly toned skin. This cutting-edge light therapy can effectively treat red or brown areas of your skin.

Skin Resurfacing

At B + A Medical Aesthetics, we resurface skin with one of the world’s most effective devices—Morpheus8. Skin resurfacing with this advanced system involves RF (radiofrequency) energy delivered into deep layers of the skin. This triggers natural collagen production for smoother and firmer skin. This treatment is safe to perform on all skin types.


Regularly scheduled HydraFacial treatments will keep your skin looking refreshed, plump, and hydrated. It also keeps your skin super-cleansed, warding off future breakouts that could further damage your skin.

Chemical Peels

A customized chemical peel will help rejuvenate your skin by removing the damaged top layer. This reveals fresh, healthy skin cells for smoother and more evenly toned skin. We may advise a Signature ZO Peel, customized ZO Peel, or a series of gentle peels performed at regular intervals.
