Were you one of those unlucky teenagers who had severe acne? Do the scars it left on your skin cause you to cringe when you look in the mirror or see a picture of yourself? Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, located in Centreville, VA, cares about you. We want all our patients to live lives filled with self-confidence and joy. That’s why we offer innovative and effective acne scar treatment.

What acne is:

Acne affects the skin’s oil glands. Your pores connect to glands under your skin. The glands produce sebum, an oily substance. Your pores and glands are connected by a tunnel called a follicle. If the follicle becomes clogged, a pimple will result. The areas most affected by acne are your face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. If the acne is severe, or becomes infected, scarring can occur. As we age, our skin loses collagen which can make the acne scars appearance to worsen.

Types of acne scar treatments:

  • Cortisone cream: This is for fairly mild scars or recent ones. It will help reduce redness and swelling.
  • Lasers: Laser skin resurfacing can even reduce acne scars. This can occur in just one to three sessions!
  • Filler injections: Sometimes, we use fillers to help fill in the pock marks left by deep acne scars.

How we can help:

We will consult with you and determine exactly what type of acne scars you have and design a treatment plan based on your specific needs. There’s no guesswork on your part about which at-home remedy will work. We also will help follow-up with you to keep ensuring your scars are faded and you know the correct way to care for your skin. Trust in one of Washingtonian’s Top Docs!

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
