Bye-bye Acne Scars
Occasional pimples are one thing, frequent flare-ups and their resulting acne scars are something altogether different. The bumpy skin texture that develops after a flare-up can make us feel seriously self-conscious. These scars come in all shapes and sizes, including:
- Ice Pick Scars: These scars feature an indentation that is wide at the top and narrows as it gets deeper. They can commonly be found on your forehead and upper cheeks, where your skin is thinner.
- Rolling Scars: These scars feature indents that have sloping edges, making skin look uneven and wavy. They can typically be found on the lower cheeks and jaw, where your skin is thicker.
- Boxcar Scars: These scars have sharper edges that go down deep into the skin. These scars are common on the lower checks and jaw.
If you’re dealing with these types of scars and are looking for help, you’ve come to the right place.

Treatments For Acne Scars
At Wave Medical Aesthetics, we offer the Secret™ RF Microneedling treatment to address acne scars. This device uses microneedles against the skin’s surface, triggering a healing response. As the needles work, they release radiofrequency energy into the skin’s deeper layers.
This process firm up tissue, remodels collagen and diminishes scars. Besides being an excellent scar treatment, Secret™ is also great for reducing wrinkles and improving the texture of your skin.
Acne scars happen after acne blemishes become inflamed. The skin’s pores swell, and its walls break down. Sometimes the contents of blemishes spill into the surrounding tissue and cause deeper scars. The skin sends out collagen into the area to repair the damage.
Scars can either be indented or raised on the surface of the skin. Indented scars happen because of tissue loss, while raised scars happen when too much collagen is sent to the area for repair. People who are prone to acne and scarring often exhibit a mix of both.
