How to Fade Acne Scars


If you’ve finally gotten the breakouts under control, having acne scars marring your complexion can be frustrating. Our skin experts at Rejuve Med-Spa can help you fade acne scars with several treatment options.

What Causes Acne and Acne Scarring?

Acne occurs when your pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. This common skin condition can result from many factors, including hormonal changes, excess oil production, bacteria, and inflammation. Certain medications, genetics, and lifestyle factors, such as diet and stress, may play a role in the development of acne.

Many people, even if they win the battle against acne, are still frustrated with the resulting scars. Acne scars can be even harder to eliminate than the breakouts that caused them.

Will Acne Scars Fade Over Time?

Acne scars fade over a few months or years, but they won’t disappear altogether. The scars can be depressed or raised and are often a different color than the surrounding skin. Fortunately, you have several treatment options to diminish acne scars.

Acne Scar Treatments

There are various treatments for acne scars, just like for acne itself. Most people start with skincare products that contain ingredients like retinol, lactic acid, or salicylic acid. Though over-the-counter topical treatments can be helpful, many people want more dramatic results, especially if their acne scars are severe and don’t respond to skincare products.

To optimally fade your acne scars, you may want to try cosmetic treatments that resurface the skin or promote collagen production. Rejuve Med-Spa offers multiple skin rejuvenation treatments that can significantly fade acne scars. 

AquaGold® fine touch™ and Microneedling

Microneedling uses tiny needles to cause controlled damage to your skin, triggering a healing response that increases collagen production. Since collagen keeps your skin firm and smooth, this collagen boost can improve your complexion and make acne scars less noticeable. AquaGold® fine touch™ combines microneedling with powerful serums to yield even better results.

Chemical Peels

Rejuve offers several types of chemical peels that can treat hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, acne scars, and more. The treatment causes the top layers of damaged skin to peel, revealing healthy new skin underneath. It also stimulates collagen production to heal the skin. A chemical peel helps clear away damaged, scarred skin, leaving your complexion brighter and clearer.


Microdermabrasion is a gentler alternative to chemical peels. Your skin is gently exfoliated with a diamond-tip handpiece, removing dead skin cells and stimulating blood flow. Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and can help fade minor acne scars.

Pixel Skin Resurfacing

This fractional laser treatment is a safe, effective way to stimulate collagen production without the discomfort of needles and chemical peels. The laser’s heat causes controlled microdamage to your skin, promoting a healing response. The laser also has a tightening effect that can help leave skin smoother and firmer. Pixel laser treatments can effectively fade hyperpigmentation and acne scars.

I am currently undergoing a series of laser treatments with Kinsey and I couldn’t be more pleased. She is professional and always sets me at ease. I highly recommend Rejuve.
