Acne Scars

Sometimes acne leaves behind an unwelcome reminder in the form of scarring. Acne scars are distressing to the patient, and challenging to treat. Acne scars can look like indentations or bumps on the skin, and may be associated with red or brown pigmentation.

Acne needs to be stable for a minimum of 6 months before acne scar treatments can be started. While it may not be possible to eliminate your acne scars, we have treatments at O’Neill Cosmetic Dermatology in Mississauga to help improve their appearance.

What we can do

We typically recommend a combination approach:

  • Skin resurfacing to promote healing below the skin
  • Dermal fillers to help lift and plump indented skin
  • IPL to decrease redness or pigmentation associated with acne scars
  • Microdermabrasion or chemical peels to improve skin texture and tone
  • Therapeutic skin care products to help control future breakouts

Treatments for acne scars are not covered by OHIP.
