How Can I Fade My Acne Scars?

Breakouts and blemishes can sometimes lead to acne scars, which can take months or years to heal on their own, if at all. If you are struggling with acne scarring, look no further than Twin Ports Dermatology for various high-quality products and treatments to fade scars and achieve a glowing complexion!

What Causes Acne Scars?

Acne scars can be left behind due to inflammation caused by acne. When this inflation causes damage deep within the skin, the body will produce collagen to repair it. During the healing process, your skin may produce too much or too little collagen, which results in scarring.

What Are the Types of Acne Scars?

The type of acne scarring you see will depend on whether your skin creates too much or too little collagen. If your skin produces too much collagen, you will have raised scarring, and if it does not produce enough collagen, you will have depressed scarring. You will likely have several different types of acne scarring rather than just one.

How Can I Fade My Acne Scars?

Acne scarring can be difficult to treat, which is why at Twin Ports Dermatology, we offer a wide array of products and treatments to fade acne scars and help you achieve clear, radiant skin! Following are some of our most popular products and treatments.

Quality Skincare Products

You can treat acne scarring at home with quality skincare products. Retinoids and products that contain salicylic acid can be very effective for fading acne scarring. We recommend our texture kit to fade acne scars and our acne kit to treat active acne and prevent scarring.  

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is an effective, non-invasive treatment for acne scarring. This procedure requires little to no downtime and can leave your skin smoother and healthier. We offer a variety of laser skin resurfacing treatments, but we most commonly use CO2RE®, a C02 laser treatment.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can improve skin texture and give your skin a smoother and more even appearance. Chemical peel treatments come in varying depths, including light, medium, and deep. At Twin Ports Dermatology, we offer a variety of chemical peels to treat your skin concerns. During your consultation, one of our trained estheticians will help you choose the right peel for you. 


Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a popular procedure that can diminish acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. Microneedling uses several fine needles to create microdamage in the skin, which triggers your body’s natural healing response and stimulates collagen production. We use the SkinPen® for microneedling treatments to give our clients excellent results.
