Acne scarring can greatly impact a patients self esteem. Dr. Bader offers the latest methods and technologies to improve acne scars of any age or complexity. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Bader will assess your acne scarring and recommend appropriate strategies to help make the scars less noticeable. When addressing acne scars it is crucial that the acne process is no longer active.
There are several non-surgical interventions to improve acne scarring. These include micro-needling, dermal fillers, dermabrasion, topical creams and fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing. For very deep and contracted scars, Dr. Bader offers Scar FX, which is the latest in laser scar revision technology.
Surgical scar revision is sometimes recommended for acne scarring, especially for very deep (“icepick”) or very wide (“crater”) acne scars. Improvement in the scars can be achieved with techniques such as re-excision, geometric broken-line closure, z-plasty and w-plasty. Additional strategies to improve the contour of the scarred area include fat transfer and fillers.
