Acne Scar Treatments

Acne is a very common skin condition that affects people.
At BDS, we aim to help treat the acne by taking a holistic approach because one treatment does not fit all. We will customize therapy to your skin type and medical history, focusing on hydration, cleansing, correcting bacteria balance, and good exfoliation. Treatment options include: topical prescription solutions and creams, various oral medicines from antibiotics to Accutane, at-home care and dietary modifications, and in-office procedures such as cortisone injections, Chemical Peels, blue light treatments, and microneedling. In addition, we can help to reduce acne scarring. Beyond the actual treatment options, we also want to help you create a skincare regimen that works, and that will lead to healthier and acne-free skin.

Acne Scar Treatments in Ridgewood, NJ, Oakland, NJ

Cortisone Injections

Injected directly into the pimple, these shots can take down the inflammation in 24-48 hours.

Blue Light Treatment (Photodynamic therapy)

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) utilizes a blue light in order to kill the bacteria responsible for acne breakouts.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to induce a controlled injury to the skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production.

Microneedling with PrP

In order to minimize aging and restore a naturally youthful look, many of our patients have enjoyed positive results through microneedling with platelet rich plasma (PRP).

Chemical Peels

For age spots, discoloration, wrinkles, or mild scarring, chemical peels can be an effective technique for restoring a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Administered by our experienced staff, chemical peels involve a solution being applied to the patient’s face.


Extractions involve the use of a sterile tool to extract contents of a pimple.
