If you suffer from acne breakouts on your back and have visible scars, it can be a blow to your confidence. You may avoid revealing your back and shoulders at the pool, beach, or in low-cut garments.
Best back acne scar treatments at Alinea Medical Spa
Nordlys Ellipse Frax 1550 Laser
Back acne scar laser treatment is best suited for shallow to medium-depth acne scars, such as boxcar scars, rolling scars and icepick scars. For deeper scarring, subcision surgery may be a more appropriate treatment option.
Selective Waveband (SWT®) IPL
Our advanced IPL system works to improve skin tone and reduce the appearance of red and brown hyperpigmented back acne scars by targeting both red and brown pigments to produce a more even tone to discolored skin.
Subcision Scar Revision
Subcision may be the ideal approach to treat pitted scars. Subcision involves releasing acne scar tissue that creates the pitted look on the skin. A special needle is used to release the scar tissue fibers directly under the skin to smooth its appearance.
PRP (platelet rich plasma)
PRP works best when combined with other therapies such as microneedling. It involves concentrated healing factors extracted from your own blood, injected to boost the body’s production of collagen to improve the appearance of back acne scars.
Dermal fillers restore the volume loss characteristic of deep acne scars. Particularly after undergoing subcision scar removal, fillers can be injected to further smooth any dimpling on the skin’s surface.
Chemical skin peels have been the gold standard for a variety of acne scars for many decades. Peels are very useful for resurfacing both the top and deeper layers of skin to minimize both pitted and hyperpigmented acne scars.
