Banish acne scars and improve your quality of life
Acne blemishes are caused by a complex skin disorder that is not just problematic for adolescents but also for adults. Acne can affect multiple areas, including the face, back, chest, and even arms. Sometimes it may seem like the acne is extremely noticeable to everyone around you. And if it’s not the blemishes that have you reaching for the cover-up, it’s the scars that remain after years of battling the condition. Makeup, lotions and creams may provide a temporary improvement, but they do not treat the core of the problem.
Dr. Rapaport offers a permanent solution and the acne scar treatment options that you can feel confident about. He uses the most advanced technology available today to treat the damaged skin on the deep level and provide outstanding permanent results.
What is Acne and Why Does it Cause Your Skin to Scar?
The internet is filled with myths about what causes pimples, but acne is a long-term skin disorder that is caused when hair follicles are blocked up with oils, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The clogged pores develop an infection in the follicle and manifest as a swollen, irritated lump in the skin.
While acne affects hundreds of millions of Americans on a daily basis, not everyone with the affliction develops humiliating facial scars. You see, not everyone’s skin reacts to acne the same way, due to a variety of factors. The human body produces an important protein called collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein that gives your skin its elasticity. Meaning it gives your skin its shape and firmness. Sometimes when your skin is healing from the infection in the hair follicles, the collagen is harmed during the process. This is more common in some sufferers than others, and the damage can lead to elevated and pockmarked scaring left by acne.
How Can I Heal My Facial Scarring?
Those who have been scarred by acne will be relieved to know that there are fillers, lasers, and micro-needling procedures that have been developed to handle even the most stubborn acne scars. The treatments aid sufferers from the smallest of scars to the most persistent. Regardless their skin tone, patients can obtain a balanced, smooth, and natural pigmentation. Come to the Bay Area’s Jeffrey Rapaport, MD and have a consultation with Dr. Rapaport. There, he will assess your scarring and develop a custom course of action to treat your skin.
What Are the Types of Acne Scars?
Acne scars fall into two main categories: those caused by a loss of tissue (atrophic scars), and those caused by an excess of tissue (hypertrophic scars). Within these categories, there are four main types of acne scars: ice pick, boxcar, rolling, and keloid scars.
Acne scars can be difficult to treat, and always require professional help if you want to see real improvement. Unfortunately, over-the-counter products simply aren’t powerful enough to improve anything besides discoloration.
How We Can Eliminate Acne Scaring with RF?
When weighing your options for scar treatments, there are many procedures available to you, but Dr. Rapaport gets his most dramatic results with the Infini RF, because it works on the deep level and provides specific skin health benefits to his patients. The RF is a treatment that can single out those troublesome mid-skin-deep scars. This procedure is able to treat patients who in the past were thought non-treatable by other treatments.
The RF Micro-Needling aids those with acne scars by offering a resolution that:
- Can be altered to accurately pinpoint their specific skin troubles.
- Offers the bonus of minimizing pore visibility and gives the skin a refreshing luminosity.
- Can be adapted for treatment intensity and faster recovery from the treatment.
What Does the Procedure Feel Like?
Procedures administered with the RF are mild and easy, unlike harsh surgical options. It is possible that you might see some irritation following the procedure. It will normally subside within a few of days after the procedure as the skin starts to heal and regenerate.
If you are receiving treatments with the RF for acne scarring, you will get the best results from a few repeated treatments. However, each treatment will stimulate the proteins in the skin, working towards a more even complexion.

Customized Personalized Acne Scar Removal
A chemical peel exfoliates the skin on a deeper level than topical exfoliation. It rejuvenates and produces new skin. In-clinic chemical peels are effective at reducing the appearance of acne scars. They are also helpful in removing hyperpigmentation and darkening caused by acne flares.
Profound uses radiofrequency technology to help eradicate scars of all depths via a combination of heat and little needles. The heat is delivered at different depths in the skin, which creates new collagen and elastin. That in turn leads to improved texture, skin tightening, and reduced visibility of scars.
Fillers for Acne Scars
Soft-tissue Fillers for Acne Scars are an effective therapy for some acne scars. A filler such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotereo, Retylane or Sculptra is injected directly into acne scars with a very small needle to improve the skin’s appearance.
