Enjoy Lasting Improvement

We know that those with persistent acne spend a lot of time trying to find the proper treatment to produce lasting results. Furthermore, acne scarring can be very noticeable, especially on the face, making the desire to find an effective solution more pressing. Our expert staff at MG Plastic Surgery utilize several skin rejuvenation treatments to address acne and provide a dramatic improvement for men and women in Scottsdale, AZ.

What Factors Contribute to Acne Scarring?

While it’s difficult to anticipate who will be susceptible to developing acne scars, some of the contributing factors that can exacerbate the condition are as follows:

  • Popping, picking, or squeezing acne during an active breakout
  • Genetic predisposition and family history of developing acne scars
  • Nodular or cystic acne that is painful, swollen, or red in color
  • Delayed or a lack of acne treatment which leads to chronic inflammatory acne

How Does Acne Treatment Work?

Certain types of bacteria cause and worsen acne, depending on the characteristics of each individual’s skin.

Acne-prone skin has an exaggerated reaction when it becomes irritated, and the resulting scars and craters can be difficult to improve. Severe acne presents many challenges, especially if it is chronic or not responsive to other medications.

Many dermatologists will attempt to treat severe acne with oral medications, but certain types of acne may persist even after medications and topical products. We have found the following treatments incredibly beneficial for providing a long-term solution for the effects of acne on the complexion. Our accomplished professionals will assess your face and customize a treatment plan for optimal results for your particular skin condition.

Acne Treatment Solutions


Active acne can benefit from a deep cleanse. Microdermabrasion helps smooth the skin by gently sucking away any dead skin cells. A soothing experience, microdermabrasion can be repeated once a month. 

Chemical Peel

Chemical peel treatments utilize the careful formation of a chemical solution to strip away damaged, discolored, and scarred skin cells. The skin that heals in its place reveals a more radiant, smooth, and even color and texture.


Intense pulsed light therapy is an excellent treatment option for individuals who want to treat active acne while simultaneously reducing scarring. An especially beneficial solution for cystic acne, IPL uses light wavelengths to reduce inflammation, manage the bacteria that cause acne, and improve the texture and tone of the skin.

Dermal Fillers

For severe acne pockmarks and deeper scars, dermal fillers can be injected directly into the skin depressions and indentations. This process can even out the skin's texture in the affected areas. 

Agnes RF

Cystic acne, in particular, tends to be ruled by hormones and may not respond to anything but laser treatments. Using a unique combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedles, Agnes RF penetrates the deep dermal layers to improve the texture and tone of the skin. When used to treat cystic acne, it can simultaneously reduce inflammation in the skin and kill acne-causing bacteria that contribute to persistent breakouts. Most importantly, the treatment can destroy oil glands that cause cystic breakouts, which can prevent future acne in the future.
