- Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a process in which chemicals like alpha hydroxy acid are applied to your face. After they have sat on your skin for about 5-10 minutes, Dr. Barry Goldman will remove the chemicals and you will be sent on your way. During the next week, you can expect your skin to slough off a little. By removing the top few layers of your skin, chemical peels work to help get rid of acne scarring by encouraging the growth of new skin that contains more collagen.
Similar to chemical peels, microdermabrasion is a procedure used to get rid of acne scarring by encouraging the growth of new skin and the production of collagen. By applying crystals to your skin, microdermabrasion works to target those top layers of your skin and typically takes a few weeks for your skin to fully heal. After a few treatments, most patients start to see a diminished appearance of their acne scarring.
This type of facial uses intense pulse light therapy to reduce the mild appearance of acne scars. By targeting the cells on your skin, this light therapy works to create a smooth surface that is rid of mild acne scars. Typically lasting about 45 minutes per session, photofacials are a non-invasive procedure that can get you in and out of the office in no time.
You don’t have to undergo some sort of crazy invasive medical procedure in order to get rid of your acne scarring. In fact by either getting a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or a photofacial, you can help to get rid of your acne scarring. To learn more, contact Dr. Barry Goldman today!
