What is acne scar revision?

Acne scar revision uses a variety of cosmetic techniques to get rid of the scarring acne causes. Acne scars might appear as:

  • Red or purple skin patches
  • Indentations or raised areas
  • Skin discoloration
  • Rough, textured, or bumpy skin

Scar revision creates skin that’s smoother, even-toned, younger-looking, and aesthetically pleasing. It can give you a boost of confidence and improve your quality of life.

Dr. Koch has many years of experience treating acne scars to make them less noticeable; he can give you the beautiful skin you want.

What are the different types of acne scar revisions?

Dr. Koch offers a variety of acne scar revision techniques, including:

Laser treatment

Dr. Koch uses laser energy to diminish acne scarring and stimulate new skin cell production without surgery or downtime.

Microneedling

Microneedling uses tiny needles to make microtears in your skin, boosting collagen and elastin production and reducing the appearance of scars over time.

Skin tightening

Skin tightening procedures use radiofrequency energy to heat and tighten your skin, making acne scars much less noticeable.

Injections

Koch Facial Plastic Surgery offers a variety of injections, such as steroids, other medicines, and dermal fillers, to reduce acne scarring and revitalize your skin without surgery or downtime.

Surgery

Dr. Koch offers cryosurgery to freeze scar tissue and other minor surgeries to reduce the appearance of acne scars and give you smoother, rejuvenated skin. He first numbs the treatment area and offers twilight sedation to help you relax during each procedure. There’s no pain and little to no downtime after acne scar revision surgery.
