Newport Beach patients learn how to mask the appearance of Acne Scars with dermatology services

We all want to look our best. Unfortunately, for many people, acne can leave permanent scars and cause sufferers to be embarrassed by their appearance. If you are currently dealing with the after-effects of acne, Dr. Farshidi and her team offer patients several treatment options to effectively reduce the appearance of scars.

Acne is a condition caused by clogging of the pores from oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. Patients may experience acne in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples. Most often, acne scars are the result of one of those lesions becoming inflamed and destroying healthy skin tissue. As the skin begins its natural healing process, it forms new collagen fibers to repair the skin. This healing process is what produces scars, either in the form of raised red areas or indented marks.

While acne was once thought to be a condition that only occurs during the teen years, the truth is that many adults, both men and women, deal with acne outbreaks every day.

Anyone who is suffering from acne knows from strolling through the drug store that there is no shortage of over-the-counter medications available. For some patients with mild outbreaks, these products can be very effective at controlling the acne and reducing scars. For others, their skin simply doesn’t respond to them. The most effective treatment for acne is often a combination of methods. We offer patients both topical and oral medications as a way to manage acne and reduce the possibility of scars. We also offer a variety of facial rejuvenation treatments to leave your skin looking fresher, younger, and healthier.
