Acne Scars

Acne can be a problem for individuals of any age, but one lasting effect of acne is acne scars. If left unaddressed, many patients who have had acne in the past may experience these permanent scars for the rest of their lives. Some scars can be extremely noticeable. These scars can cause patients to lose self-esteem and become self-conscious about the way they look. However, patients do not have to live with acne scars. There are ways to reduce the severity of their appearance.

Acne Scar Treatment
The providers at Derick Dermatology, located in Arlington Heights, Barrington, Bartlett, Buffalo Grove, Crystal Lake, Elgin, McHenry and Park Ridge, offer a number of solutions that allow you to get rid of acne scars once and for all. Our state-of-the-art dermatology clinic provides high-tech solutions and devices such as laser therapy and even the use of creams and gels that may help improve the appearance of certain acne scars.

In order to determine the best acne scar treatment for your skin, your provider will first need to evaluate you. During this consultation, your provider will determine the type of scar, the severity of the scars, and will make note of previous attempts to address them, if any. After this consultation, your provider can talk with you to come up with an appropriate treatment plan. Acne scar treatment plans may include laser skin resurfacing, injections or topical products. Often a combination of these treatments will achieve the best results. The treatment plan will be discussed with you, as well as the cost and expectation of results, before the procedure begins.
