Acne Scars are Physical and Emotional::

Acne Scars are Physical and Emotional: Acne scars can be traumatic for a young individual or someone of any age. Often these physical scars carry with them deep emotionally | psychologically rooted scars that carry on into adulthood. Dr. Young understands the impact of Acne Scarring and has many approaches to treating Acne Scars. We hope that people who have suffered from Acne can find out about how they can improve their scars. Our hopes are that through improving these physical | outward scars we can also improve some of these emotional and psychological scars in our patients. Plastic Surgery and the treatment of Acne scars is a big part of Dr. Philip Young’s Practice and he hopes that this page can really help people understand what is out there and the treatment options available.

More on Dr. Young's Techniques::

More on Dr. Young's Techniques: Dr. Young believes there are many ways to approach acne scarring. CO2 laser resurfacing is one of the main ways to improve general Acne scarring through Acne Scar Treatment. This technique takes the top layers of tissue and skin away. In this process, some of the scars are reduced and new skin regrows to soften and improve the scars. Dr. Young often improves these results with the addition of dermabrasion | dermasanding . He has a nice page onco2 laser resurfacing that covers some information and questions that many patients could be interested in. You can also see our special Video on co2 laser resurfacing in our Seattle | Bellevue Office here. As you will read below there are many options that Dr. Young will discuss. Based on his experience, he may suggest his new approach called the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment that can markedly improve your Acne Scarring with just one treatment.

Dr. Young believes that in the future the steps to improving acne scarring will be in these steps::

Dr. Young believes that in the future the steps to improving acne scarring will be in these steps: 1. Fat grafting (with subcision ), 2. Excisions, More Subcisions , Tissue Grafting, Deep Chemical Peeling, Deep laser resurfacing, 3. More surface work such as Dr. Young’s Graduated cO2 Laser Acne Resurfacing Treatment, Dermabrasion, Dermasanding . The thought for this process is that the fat grafting will rejuvenate the skin to increase the vascularity and general health of the skin. Then step 2 procedures, such as excisions, deep chemical peeling, will be better able to heal in a more preferable way. Once all of the scars are closer together in a horizontal level, the resurfacing in step 3 will be more effective in “polishing” the skin and further improving the appearance of the scars.

Why choose a Facial Plastic Surgeon to help me with my Scars?:

Why choose a Facial Plastic Surgeon to help me with my Scars? Facial Plastic Surgeons devote 100% of their practice to the plastic surgery of only the face and neck. Our training is based on a Head and Neck Surgery Residency which gives us the greatest command of the anatomy in this area. This understanding allows us to be better surgeons in this area. Most facial plastic surgeons are also fellowship trained and they have received additional training beyond the advanced training in facial plastic surgery that they receive during their residency. Our specialty is also surgical based. We are more apt to handle the surgical approaches to the acne scar, and scars in general, revision. Dr. Young has done both Head and Neck Surgeon and is fellowship trained. He is also board certified in laser surgery as well which makes him Double board certified.

How long does it take to Recover?:

How long does it take to Recover? This depends on entirely what you do. Fat grafting can be more involved when you do acne scar treatment. This procedure entails taking fat from some other part of your body and then transferring it to your face and the part of your face that is affected by the scar. The more areas on the face. The more the recovery. The recovery and how you interpret how presentable you are is highly subjective and dependent on your own feelings and perceptions of your state of healing at each particular point in time. We suggest a week, plus or minus a couple of days depending on how extensively we approach the fat grafting. Excisions and subcisions take a few days to a week to recover and this also depends on how extensively these procedures are done. Deep chemical peeling takes about a week for the skin to heal over. The pink color can persist for more weeks however. Laser resurfacing takes a week or more with more traditional deep skin resurfacing.
