Acne Scars Treatment Waterloo & Kitchener

Are acne scars causing you distress or affecting your self-esteem? You’re not alone. Acne scars are a common skin issue that affects many individuals. At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa in Kitchener Waterloo, Ontario, we understand the impact that acne scars can have on our clients. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of services and approaches to help you effectively address this skin concern, restore your confidence, and promote better skin health.


What are Acne scars?

Acne scars are permanent skin texture changes and indentations that occur as a result of severe acne. They arise due to the skin’s inflammatory response to acne lesions, such as pimples, cysts, or nodules. When the skin attempts to heal these lesions, it can produce too much collagen, leading to a raised scar, or too little, resulting in a depressed scar. Acne scars can vary in shape, size, and even color, and are usually a visible reminder of acne breakouts. They can occur anywhere on the body where acne is present but are most commonly found on the face.

What causes acne scars?

Acne scars are primarily caused by severe acne breakouts, particularly those that affect deeper layers of the skin. When a breakout penetrates the skin deeply, it damages the tissue beneath, leading to a scar. The body tries to repair the damage by producing collagen. If the body produces excess collagen, a raised scar can form. Conversely, if not enough collagen is produced, the scar may be depressed or pitted. Other factors that can contribute to acne scarring include picking, popping, or squeezing acne, as these actions can increase inflammation and lead to deeper, more severe lesions. Genetic factors may also play a role, as some people may be more prone to acne scarring than others.


Acne Scar Treatments at Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa

At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, we offer various treatments to help reduce the appearance of acne scars. After determining the severity of your condition, we will suggest non-invasive procedures like IPL Photofacial, laser treatments, etc. Here are some of our top procedures:

  • IPL Photofacial: IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial treatment uses high-intensity light pulses to target and destroy the damaged skin cells caused by acne. It also targets the excess melanin in the skin, diminishing the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation. IPL Photofacial can help clear acne-prone skin and improve overall complexion.
  • Fractora: Fractora uses radiofrequency technology to target acne scarring. It delivers controlled heat energy deep into the skin, promoting collagen production and encouraging skin rejuvenation. This process helps to improve the appearance of acne scars by reducing their depth and smoothing out the skin’s texture.
  • PicoSure: PicoSure is a laser treatment that utilizes picosecond technology to treat acne scars. It delivers ultra-short pulses of laser energy to break down scar tissue and promote collagen production. PicoSure treatment helps to reduce the appearance of acne scars by promoting skin remodeling and improving overall skin texture and tone.
  • Microneedling: Microneedling is a procedure that creates tiny punctures in the skin using fine needles. This stimulates collagen production and triggers the skin’s natural healing process. Microneedling treats acne scarring by promoting the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, improving acne scars’ appearance and overall skin texture.
  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the outer layers and promotes skin cell turnover. By removing damaged skin cells and stimulating collagen production, chemical peels can effectively reduce the appearance of acne scars. They help to even out skin tone, improve texture, and minimize the visibility of acne scarring.

Combination Treatment Options:

PicoSure / Fractora / Microneedling + Chemical Peels

    I have done 2 Cutera IPL treatments at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. My skin was much more even tone immediately after the treatments. Dr. Cathy Ding is so knowledgeable and professional. She will talk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect during the service and how to care for your skin afterwards. I am going to see Dr. Ding for my 3rd session next week and couldn't be more excited. I would 10/10 recommend this medical spa in a heartbeat.

    Anytime I consider getting a procedure done I do extensive research online. Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa looked like a high end medical spa with very good reviews. So I decided to do under eye filler with them. Dr. Murad was very good at the injection and patient as well. I'm extremely pleased with the results. Thanks!

    I had a wonderful experience at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. From the moment that you walk in, the staff is so welcoming and friendly, the decor is professional and gorgeous, and you just feel so comfortable and relax. Nurse Tingting is absolutely amazing at what she does. She is highly skilled and patient in answering all of my questions. I have been seeing her for a while and had great results with InMode BodyFx for body contouring. Sunshine is simply the best medical spa in Kitchener Waterloo area! 10/10 would go back again and highly recommand to others who looking for skincare service!
