Causes of Acne Scars

Acne scars can develop due to various factors, including:

  • Inflammatory Acne: Severe or cystic acne can cause deep inflammation, leading to more pronounced scarring.
  • Picking or Squeezing Pimples: Manipulating acne lesions can damage the skin and worsen scarring.
  • Delayed Treatment: Not treating acne promptly can result in prolonged inflammation and increased risk of scarring.
  • Genetics: A family history of acne scarring can increase your likelihood of developing scars.
  • Skin Type: Some skin types are more prone to scarring due to their healing processes.
  • Improper Skincare Routine: Using harsh products or not following a proper skincare routine can exacerbate acne and increase the risk of scarring.
  • Sun Exposure: Exposure to the sun can darken acne scars and make them more noticeable.
  • Hormonal Imbalances: Fluctuations in hormones can trigger severe acne, leading to an increased risk of scarring.
  • Stress: High levels of stress can worsen acne, leading to more significant inflammation and potential scarring.
  • Diet: A diet high in processed foods and sugars can contribute to acne, which may result in scarring if not managed properly.

Treatments for Acne Scars

At Glow Up by Vanessa, we offer a range of advanced treatments to address acne scars and rejuvenate your skin.

1. Microneedling

Microneedling creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin repair. This treatment is effective in improving the texture of acne scars and reducing their appearance over time. The procedure involves the use of fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin, which triggers the body's natural healing process. This leads to the formation of new collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother and more even skin texture.

2. Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use a solution to exfoliate the damaged outer layers of skin, revealing smoother, healthier skin underneath. This treatment can help to reduce the depth of acne scars and improve overall skin tone. Different types of chemical peels, ranging from superficial to deep, can be customized based on the severity of your scars. Superficial peels use mild acids like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to gently exfoliate, while deeper peels use stronger acids to penetrate further into the skin for more significant results.

3. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, can be used to fill in depressed acne scars, providing immediate improvement in skin texture. This treatment is particularly useful for treating deep, pitted scars. The hyaluronic acid in these fillers not only adds volume but also attracts moisture, further plumping the skin and smoothing out irregularities. The results are typically long-lasting, but maintenance treatments may be needed to sustain the effects.

3. RF Therapy

RF therapy uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture. This treatment can help to smooth out acne scars and promote firmer, more youthful-looking skin. RF therapy can be combined with microneedling or other treatments to enhance results. The heat generated by RF waves penetrates the skin, causing tissue contraction and collagen remodeling, which improves the appearance of scars over time.

I went in for tox and fillers for the first time almost 3 months ago. I have struggled with rosacea the last 4 years. No matter what I did the redness and swelling would not go away unless I took doxycycline. I noticed the last two months that my complexion has a normal skin tone and glow. I decided to google if tox and fillers help with rosacea and to my surprise I found an article that says it does help. I am beyond satisfied.


Vanessa is absolutely amazing. I was extremely nervous about getting my lip fillers and she eased my anxiety away and now I’m in love with my new lips and can’t wait to go back, I recommend her to everyone! 10/10 I promise.

Destiny Villarreal

Vanessa is nothing short of amazing! I am so glad I found her. She was patient, sat and carefully listened to what I was trying to achieve and has helped me achieve exactly what I wanted with little to no discomfort. The healing process is the easiest it has ever been for me no bruising, no lumps just pure plump! ♥️.


You have no idea how grateful I was for the music and the ‘Calm’ app and your gentle explanation. I’ve never had such a nice, informative, calm experience.

Vanessa is an amazing Nurse Practitioner injector I look up to. I recently had the pleasure of shadowing her during my training and I was very impressed by her knowledge, skills, patient interactions and professionalism. I definitely recommend her for any aspiring Nurse practitioner injector to learn more about aesthetics.

After having a cyst removed from my chin 2 years ago, I would look at my chin and notice that loss of structure. I was very unhappy with the way that part of my chin looked. After having met with Vanessa and filling it with hyaluronic acid, I feel like no one would know.
