Acne Scars

Many treatment options are available to diminish the acne scars’ appearance. As follow:

  • Microdermabrasion - This procedure, lasting about 10-20 minutes, uses a machine to propel small crystals through a vacuum tube onto the skin. This removes superficial layers of the skin, stimulating new skin cell growth and improving skin tone. This procedure can do every 2 weeks.
  • Subcision - The skin is made numb and a probe is inserted beneath the acne scar, which loosens it from the surrounding tissue. This allows the scar to be elevated to the level of the normal skin. Subcision is used for depressed acne scars such as a boxed scar or rolling scar.
  • Dermal fillers: fillers can be injected beneath a depressed acne scar to elevate it to the level of the surrounding skin. The benefit from soft tissue fillers usually lasts average 12 months.
  • Chemical peels: a fluid is applied to the skin to remove the top layer and generate new skin growth beneath the acne scars. This lifts the scar to the level of the surrounding skin, minimizing its appearance. In general, "medium" or "deep" peels are used to treat.
  • Laser skin resurfacing: This removes the top portion of the acne scars and creates heat in the deeper layers of the skin. This heat causes the skin to tighten and smooth out the scar. The result is the smoothing out of the skin.
