Acne in itself can be a very unpleasant experience. Luckily, it can usually be resolved with the proper treatment. Unfortunately, even after your acne is gone, you might be left with a little souvenir. Scars.

These scars can alter the texture and appearance of your skin. Many people find the scars just as frustrating as the acne that caused them.

There is treatment available to help get rid of acne scars.

Skin Lightening Serums. The damage that the acne causes to the skin can often trigger a pigmentation response leaving the area darker than the surrounding skin. A skin lightening serum applied daily can help reduce the appearance of the pigmentation making the scarring less noticeable. Our most potent skin lightener, Regenerate Reset, contains Licorice Root Extract, this has been shown to be effective yet gentle enough to use every single day. 

Dermapen or Collagen Induction Therapy. Micro needles make tiny holes all over the dermis which then triggers your body’s own repair mechanism. This treatment induces your skin to create new collagen and elastin thus greatly improving the texture of the skin. Skin needling sounds painful but its actually very comfortable.  This treatment has minimal downtime.

Dermal fillers. Larger pock marks can actually be filled with dermal fillers to blend them with the surrounding area. These fillers can last more than 12 months and are made from a natural sugar based molecule.
