Get smoother skin with dermabrasion treatment for acne scars in San Diego, CA

Posted By

Acne Treatment San Diego CA area
Acne can be a problem for teenagers or adults. Although it is a skin issue, acne affects an individual’s self-confidence and impacts relationships. The right treatment gives patients a sense of relief by helping them achieve beautiful, healthy skin. Located in San Diego, CA, the team at Coastal Skin and Eye Institute offer customized acne treatment plans for smoother skin.

Acne problems

Acne can cause problems beyond active breakouts. Preventing acne breakouts lessens the cosmetic effects but also the chance of scarring. Patients who get recurrent acne need medical help to control the breakouts and to smooth the skin. There are several acne treatments available giving patients options to suit their unique needs. Our team creates a customized treatment plan for each patient’s skin type and needs. Acne treatment may include a single treatment or a combination. We offer the following options:

  • Extraction
  • Draining large cysts or pimples
  • Prescription medications including topicals and oral antibiotics
  • Laser treatment
  • Dermabrasions

Although there are different types of acne, cystic acne is one of the most common causes of permanent acne scars. Unfortunately, this is not limited to teenagers and can linger for years. It affects men more often, but women are susceptible as well. Cystic acne can appear on the face, chest, back, arms, and shoulders.

When a pimple forms, the skin is clogged with dead skin cells. When bacteria are trapped, the area becomes red and swollen. This is cystic acne. The area may be red, tender, and filled with pus. It may hurt or itch. Cysts that burst lead to further skin infections and breakouts.

What is dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion is a procedure that smoothes blemishes and brightens the skin. The outer layer of the skin is exfoliated with a special handpiece or exfoliating crystals. The treatment improves the texture and tone of the skin. It is a non-invasive procedure that is performed in the office without downtime or a recovery period.

With any acne, the first rule is not to pick or pop pimples. This damages the skin, spread bacteria and worsens acne. The risk of scarring increases. Scars are a sign that the skin has been broken and damaged. Popping pimples leads to infections and the formation of larger lesions. The body works to repair the damage by creating new collagen. The collagen and tissue produced may be different than the current texture of the skin. The skin’s texture may change resulting in scars.

Collagen is a crucial building block of the skin that breaks down when the skin is damaged by aging, sun exposure, or even acne scars. Dermabrasion helps stimulate and thicken collagen in the face. It makes subtle changes to the skin without causing damage, scarring, or the need for downtime. Effective on all skin types, the result is healthy, smooth skin.

Skin benefits of dermabrasion

Skin benefits of dermabrasion in San Diego area
A custom treatment plan using dermabrasion is an effective part of achieving healthy, glowing skin. Benefits of these treatments include the following:

  • Non-invasive - Dermabrasion does not require lasers or surgery. The skin is not broken past the epidermis. Only flaws on the surface of the skin are treated.
  • Painless - No anesthesia is required. Patients have described a feeling of scratching or mild anesthesia, but the treatment is comfortable.
  • No downtime - There is no recovery period. Following dermabrasion, the skin may be pink, but patients can resume normal activity. Use moisturizer to soothe the skin and wear sunscreen to protect it.
  • Safe and effective - Under the guidance of your skin care professional, microdermabrasion’s are safe and effective. Your treatment is tailored to your specific needs to help you achieve the healthy skin you deserve.
  • Visible improvement - A series of treatments helps improve the skin tone and texture and keeps the skin healthy.
  • For all skin types - People of all skin types can experience acne and acne scarring. Dermabrasion works on and improves a variety of skin concerns, types, tones, and textures. Men and women can be treated with dermabrasions.

Dermabrasion can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures to produce healthy, youthful skin. Contact Coastal Skin and Eye Institute in San Diego, CA to learn more about our acne and acne scar treatments for smoother skin. Call (858) 943-2540.


Actual Patient Review

The best service in my 20 year history of buying eye wear. Had to buy a pair of mid-range glasses for both music and computer use, a tough requirement. Randy provided me just the right amount of information and help to make a great choice that satisfied all my criteria, including price. I could not be happier. Originally posted on
