How can my acne scars be treated?

This depends on the kind of acne you are suffering from and the type of scarring. During your consultation, Dr. Stanislaw will evaluate your scars and determine which treatment is best suited for your skin. First, your acne needs to be under control prior to undergoing any treatments for scars. Second, scar treatments are always degrees of improvement. There will always be a scar, but Dr. Stanislaw’s job is to make the scar as least noticeable as possible.

To determine the most appropriate treatment for a scar, it must be broken down to its main features. Listed are various features and their treatment options:

1. Color

Red – makeup, pulsed dye laser
Darker (Brown) – makeup, prescription bleaching agents, chemical peel, IPL, laser treatment
White – makeup, lighten the skin around the scar, surgical excision

2. Texture

Shiny (similar to stretch mark or missing pores) – collagen induction therapy, surgical excision

3. Raised Scar

(This depends on how much the scar is raised) – microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, surgical excision, steroid injection to flatten it out

4. Depressed Scar

Collagen induction therapy (microneedling), chemical peel, laser skin resurfacing. The two most common treatments are injectable filler and surgical excision. If the scar is really deep, surgical subcision or surgical excision are the best options.
