Acne-scarred skin appears reddened, unevenly colored, pitted, or bumpy. Because the skin has been damaged, it is impossible to camouflage acne scars with cosmetics – and they can be a source of embarrassment. At B + A Medical Aesthetics, we offer several treatments to restore a smoother, evenly-toned look to acne-scarred skin. Our acne scar treatments are directed by two onsite, board-certified surgeons who are committed to providing the most advanced treatments available in the USA.
Effective treatments for acne scars in Austin
If your facial skin, or body skin, has been damaged by acne breakouts, our range of aesthetic procedures can help you achieve smoother, evenly-toned skin. Our approach is fully customized and requires an in-person evaluation. Depending on the type and extent of the scarring, various procedures can be employed to reduce their appearance and help you restore smoother skin.
Types of acne scars
The type and extent of your scars will determine the treatments that will produce the best result for you. Acne scars appear in several forms:
- Ice-pick scars: These scars appear as a narrow pit on the skin surface.
- Rolling scars: These scars create depressions in the skin surface, with an undefined edge.
- Boxcar scars: These depressions have a defined edge.
- Atrophic scars: These scars are flat, thin, or depressed.

At B + A Medical Aesthetics, we perform custom acne scar correction and may advise a combination of treatments, based on the condition of your skin.
Some deeper acne scars can be smoothed with a custom injection of a dermal filler. Our injection specialist uses a meticulous injection technique to create a smoother look to deeper acne scars. The treatment must be repeated as the filler is absorbed by the body, but lasts for several months before retreatment is needed.
IPL, or “intense pulsed light,” has proven to improve skin quality and make acne scars less visible. The treatment involves bursts of intense light energy, applied to the affected area to treat unevenly toned skin. Red or brown areas of your skin can be effectively treated with this cutting-edge light therapy.
At B + A Medical Aesthetics, we perform skin resurfacing with one of the world’s most effective devices: the Morpheus8. Skin resurfacing with this advanced system involves RF (radiofrequency) energy delivered into the deeper skin layers to trigger natural collagen production, and smoother, firmer skin. The effect of treatment is uniform, and this approach has the advantage of being safe to perform on all skin types.
Regularly scheduled HydraFacial treatments will keep your skin looking refreshed, more plump, and hydrated, and can keep your skin super-cleansed, warding off future breakouts that could further damage your skin.
A customized chemical peel will help your skin rejuvenate, by removing the damaged upper layer, allowing for fresh, healthy skin cells to be revealed, and smoother, more evenly toned skin. We may advise a Signature ZO Peel, customized ZO Peel, or a series of gentle peels performed at regular intervals.
