ACNE Scarring Treatment and Solutions - Dallas Dermatologist
What makes Dr. Adler's approach to acne scarring different? Dr. Adler takes a two-step approach to treating this problem, and it is the first step that makes his treatment unique.
Acne scarring can be compared to a balloon on a string. The scar is tied down - tethered, if you will - to the underlying tissue. Most doctors treat acne scarring with a one-step laser process, which inflates the "balloon" but does not release it from the tissue. The result is a smoother finish, although the scar is still sunken into the skin.
Dr. Adler's magical touch first unties the string to release the balloon. This is done through a simple surgical procedure called subcision. This is a very easy procedure, done in the office under local anesthesia. Once the "string" is released, imagine the "balloon" (scar) naturally floating to the surface. Then Dr Adler performs Fraxel laser which is icing on the cake and allows the scar to flatten far more than laser alone.
"After just one year with Park Cities Dermatology, my acne and scarring are gone and my skin is smooth and radiant. As a 17-year old model with The Campbell Agency, my skin needed to be flawless. I had suffered from acne and scarring and tried other dermatologists without satisfaction. Recommended by my agency, Dr. Adler and PA Witten were my last hope. In addition to prescribing antibiotics, Dr. Adler performed a unique procedure to remove scarring called Subcision that was not available through my previous doctors, as well as Fraxel to reduce discoloration. That leads us to today. I am no longer using antibiotics, and my skin remains clear and beautiful. Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I have to remind myself that I’m not wearing any makeup. I highly recommend Dr. Adler and PA Witten who are two genuinely caring individuals that go above and beyond to make sure you feel comfortable, informed and get incredible results."
