Unfortunately, acne does not always come and go on its own or without leaving a mark. Some acne breakouts can result in scarring. In some cases, the irritation can cause the pimples to burst. This action rips the follicle wall and can be a painful experience and healing process.

Scars are visible if they are red or discolored or if they are elevated or depressed creating a contour irregularity in the skin. Acne scarring can often appear as a depressed or indented spot or hole in the skin that are difficult to correct. Even with make-up, many acne scars are still visible because they cannot be covered completely. We offer many solutions to help improve acne scarring in Grand Rapids, Birmingham, Detroit, and Kalamazoo.

What Causes Acne?

Acne is a skin condition that typically appears in the teen years but can affect patients well into adulthood. Pimples can form on the skin when hair follicles and skin cells are irritated or blocked. This obstruction builds up bacteria, from dirt, make-up, oils, and more. With acne you can sometimes get acne scaring.

Acne is the collection of these pimples, and it can also cause whiteheads and blackheads to form. While the face is the most common and often problematic area for acne, it can also appear on the chest, upper back, and shoulders.

Are Acne Scars Treatable?

Acne can often feel defeating and overwhelming, especially when it does not respond to traditional treatments. Even worse, when the acne clears, it often leaves behind a noticeable scar. Thankfully, the appearance of acne scars can be reduced and often improved with cosmetic treatments available at the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids.

Why Consider Cosmetic Enhancement for Acne Scarring?

When it comes to something as common as acne, there are many treatment options to address the related symptoms, including acne scarring. Patients can go to their local drug store, or high-end beauty shop, or the Bengtson Center for medical-grade treatments, all with the same goal of reducing the appearance of acne scarring.

With so many options, why do our patients choose cosmetic treatments over topical creams or day spa services? We offer a vast variety and selection of options, all with slightly different results and benefits. The reason why we recommend cosmetic treatments for acne scarring is to help deliver longer-lasting results that look natural and help boost your overall appearance with assistance from knowledgeable physicians such as Dr. Bengtson.

Will Acne Scar Treatments Work for Me?

The approach best recommended for you will depend on the severity of your acne scarring and your medical history or preferred treatment options.

We can help you find an acne scar treatment program that suits your aesthetic goals and your budget and overall needs. To learn which Grand Rapids acne scarring treatment can help improve your blemishes, schedule a consultation at our facility today.

There are different ways to treat acne scarring. The best approach for each patient will vary depending on the severity of the condition, skin type, and more, which is why we offer so many options to help achieve incredible results.

What Does Treatment for Acne Scarring Cost in Grand Rapids?

The cost of a customized procedure like acne scar treatment will depend on a multitude of factors.

What procedures the patient is getting will play the most significant role, along with the extent of correction required to achieve the desired result. If follow-up treatments are going to be required, patients can discuss what that will look like financially. To help accommodate all patients, we offer flexible payment plans and financing solutions.
