WHAT ARE ACNE SCARS?
Acne scars often develop in individuals who have or had severe acne at some point in their lives. These blemishes can then lead to a dented or irregular appearance, even as the presence of acne diminishes. There are many factors that can cause someone to be more prone to developing these irregularities, such as genetics, lack of acne treatment, and picking or touching the blemishes. Unlike acne itself, acne scars are unlikely to go away on their own without treatment. At Integrative Pain and Wellness Center, our skilled team treats areas of skin damage (like acne scars) with advanced technology and skin resurfacing techniques using the Accent Prime. If you have acne scars and are curious about your options for treatment, contact our office in Southlake, TX, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Matthew Barker, Dr. Melanie Gray, or one of our aesthetic specialists.

Acne Scar Treatment Reviews
"I had seen multiple doctors including a primary care physician and dermatologist regarding severe back acne and nobody was able to help me. After one session with Isabel I saw tremendous results. I have seen her two more times since and my back is like night and day. She is amazing and really knows what she’s doing! I would highly recommend. I also saw Dr. Barker for Bodyworks and allergy testing. He is phenomenal. I will absolutely be a lifelong patient."- A.K. / Google / Jun 25, 2021
CANDIDATES FOR ACNE SCAR TREATMENT
If you have acne scars that get in the way of your confidence and comfort, you could be a wonderful candidate for acne scar treatment with the highly advanced Accent Prime to resurface the skin and create a smoother, more even skin texture. However, men and women with active acne flare-ups or certain skin conditions may not qualify to receive this treatment. To find out if acne scar treatment is the ideal procedure to enhance and improve your complexion, schedule a consultation at our Southlake, TX office.
HOW ARE acne scars TREATED?
At our premier facility in Southlake, TX, our skilled aesthetic team will perform a comprehensive analysis of your skin before creating your personalized acne scar treatment plan. Before your session, we must ensure that your skin is free of breakouts and flare-ups; this is to prevent any possible infections and to make sure that your results are comprehensive and stunning. Once your skin has been assessed, we will design your acne scar treatment plan with the Accent Prime. This innovative device, Pixel RF, will resurface the skin and reveal a smoother, softer complexion. Depending on the depth of your scars and unique goals, you may require more than one treatment. For best results, we recommend 3-5 treatments.
What Should I Expect After Acne Scar Treatment?
After an acne scar treatment with the Pixel RF system, patients may experience mild redness and/or tenderness for up to 72 hours afterward. There is no downtime; however, we may recommend avoiding direct sun exposure and wearing sunscreen to protect your skin during this time as it will be sensitive. Over the next 3 – 4 weeks, you should begin to see noticeable improvements in your skin's appearance. These results should continue to improve as new collagen and elastin growth increases with optimal results usually achieved in about 3 – 4 months.
Acne Scar Treatment FAQs
Can acne scars go away on their own?
Without proper treatment, acne scars are unlikely to dissipate on their own. Thankfully, with advanced laser treatment at Integrative Pain and Wellness Center, our team can curate an appropriate treatment plan to help diminish the appearance of acne scars. With effective treatments, your skin can appear smoother and more even.
How many acne scar treatments will I need?
Typically, patients will need a series of laser treatments for optimal results. In most cases, 3 – 5 procedures is the ideal amount for acne scar treatments. However, more treatments can be administered for more severe cases.
Will my acne scars go away permanently after treatment?
With proper treatment and aftercare techniques, your acne scars can diminish and not return. However, if you continue to experience acne, future scars can still develop. It is ideal to get any active acne under control before undergoing laser treatments for acne scarring.
