Acne scar revision solutions for Annapolis, MD area patients
Acne is a common condition and is one of the primary reasons patients visit with a dermatologist. The condition can cause many patients in the Annapolis, MD area to feel self-conscious about their appearance and may make them feel as though they are unattractive. It can be a source of embarrassment for many, especially when acne is severe and results in unsightly pustules. In order to get acne under control, patients must visit a board certified dermatologist such as Dr. Cheryl Burgess at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. She is able to provide patients with affordable, effective solutions for acne that far surpass the results achieved with over-the-counter treatments.
Once acne has been addressed and brought under control, some patients are left with telltale signs. Acne can leave behind scarring on the skin that is considered permanent, though a board certified dermatologist can provide methods of addressing these scars.
There are several scar revision techniques available. First, Dr. Cheryl Burgess must determine the type and severity of the scar in order to recommend an appropriate treatment option to patients. Many of the shallow acne scars that appear on the skin can be reduced with treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or fillers while deeper “ice pick” scars may be improved with needling procedures. A consultation appointment with the team of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery can help patients in addressing these deep and unattractive scars left behind by active acne breakouts.
