Acne Scarring With Dr. Young, Seattle

We all struggle with acne at some point in our lives. In fact, achieving healthy, smooth, and clear skin can feel like an impossible accomplishment. This can be made even more impossible when you struggle with deep acne scars that affect your skin’s texture and appearance. Acne scars are not easy to get rid of, as deep scarring goes beyond the surface of your skin and changes the foundation of your complexion. 

At Northwest Face & Body, Dr. Philip Young has worked to change acne scarring treatment to provide a comprehensive, successful treatment that provides smooth skin. His creation, The Acne Scar Vitalizer, has brought patients worldwide as it can resurface the skin and provide reliable, drastic results.

Where Do Acne Scars Come From?

Acne scarring comes from deep acne occurring under the skin. However, standard acne doesn’t cause clusters of scarring that disrupt the skin’s texture. Acne scarring comes from a long-standing struggle with deep cystic acne that develops in the hair follicles and affects the lower layers of tissue. There are a few kinds of acne scars that can occur from this, including:

  • Rolling Scars: These scars appear like rolling divots in the cheeks. These are often caused by deep, cystic acne that occurs under the skin but clustered together.
  • Boxcar Scars: Boxcar scars are divots with a boxlike structure on the outside with deep groves inside. These occur in the cheeks or where the skin is thicker on the face.
  • Ice Pick Scars: These scars are small divots resembling the skin being picked at with an ice pick. They can occur in many areas and happen due to infected acne.

This scarring can be raised or depressed depending on the patient’s acne scar pattern. Dr. Young can help you erase your acne scarring Seattle and provide personalized treatment for every patient.

What Is The Acne Scar Vitalizer?

Dr. Young created the Acne Scar Vitalizer Seattle to eliminate acne scars by reaching the deeper layers of tissue. A multi-layered approach creates real change under the skin’s surface through Dr. Young’s Acne Scar Vitalizer. Compared to traditional acne scar treatments that don’t reach deep layers and can miss the root of the scarring, the Acne Scar Vitalizer affects the area of scarring to provide real change in the skin’s texture.

How Does The Acne Scar Vitalizer Work?

After decades of working in scar treatment and skin rejuvenation, Dr. Young developed the Acne Scar Vitalizer Seattle. He saw that most traditional treatments could restructure the skin surface but did not correct deep acne scars. After in-depth studies, he realized that acne scars were in a different layer of skin known as the dermis and subcutaneous layer of fat. 

The process Dr. Young developed uses more aggressive techniques that disrupt the scar pattern and restructure the skin. It doesn’t involve a straightforward treatment. Instead, it involves many treatments that reach into those layers of tissue and fat to help the scars heal from their origin point. 

Dr. Young’s acne scar treatment Seattle works to reach the scar patterns where they lie rather than scrape at the superficial layer of skin. The Acne Scar Vitalizer is a brand-new, revolutionary treatment that creates actual change for deep acne scarring. The Acne Scar Vitalizer includes:

  • 7-15 steps that address the origin of acne scarring
  • Eliminates scarring through deep tissue treatment
  • Laser treatment as the final step
  • Is often combined with other acne scar treatments
  • Takes two to three hours to complete

Dr. Young combines his Acne Scar Vitalizer with other acne scar treatments to reconstruct the facial skin ultimately.

Additional Treatments

Dr. Young can use other acne scar Seattle treatments with the Acne Scar Vitalizer for those with deeper scarring and difficulty. These methods include scar excision, skin resurfacing, and skin volumizing to create an even, balanced texture. 

Acne Scar Excision

For acne scarring Seattle, scar excision can be an in-depth process that helps reach the deepest layer of the scar to restructure the texture and encourage blood flow to the area. Acne scar excision is reserved for those who have deep, depressed scars that are too low to reach with other treatments.

Dr. Young uses various methods of acne scar extraction that fit different types of acne scarring. These types of acne scar excision can include:

  • Subcision & Elevation: Subcision and elevation help with scars that are ice-pick in nature but set deep into the skin. It brings these depressed scars to the same level and allows them to heal at the correct height.
  • Standard Acne Excision: Standard acne excision works for ice-pick scars that must be tightly closed and elevated to the skin’s natural layer.
  • Raised Subcision: This method can be used for all types of depressed scars to help move them toward the skin’s surface. This technique requires a thin cannula that reaches behind the acne scar and helps move it to the top layer of the skin.
  • Geometric Line Closure: Geometric line closure is a suture method used for acne scar excision that hides the scar by the suture pattern. Our eyes only recognize lines over 0.7cm, meaning anything under this is undetectable. Using a geometric pattern that does not exceed 0.7cm, the scars are virtually invisible to the human eye.

Skin Volumizing

Dr. Young uses skin volumizing during his scar acne treatment Seattle, to help smooth divots in the skin and promote skin elasticity. Skin volumizing uses fat grafting and facial fillers to fill in the depressed areas that hold acne scarring. These methods help create a smoother texture to the skin and help heal acne scarring.

Skin Resurfacing

Skin resurfacing Seattle may also be used when the surface layer of the skin needs reconstruction. It can be essential to acne scar treatment as deep layers have been brought to the surface. There are various ways skin resurfacing can be achieved, including:
  • Chemical peels
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Dermabrasion
  • Dermasanding
  • Jessner’s at-home chemical peel
  • TCA Cross method for skin reconstruction
