How to Treat Acne Scars

When it comes to acne scars, the type of treatment depends on the type of scarring present. Many people do not know that there are many different types of acne scars, including ice pick, boxcar, rolling, and keloids scars.

At our office, we determine the most appropriate treatment for a scar by breaking it down by its main features. By considering the scar’s color, texture, and whether it is raised or depressed can help in choosing the best treatment option.

Treatment Options

There are an array of acne scarring treatment options available, including microdermabrasion, chemical Peels, collagen induction therapy, injectable fillers, pulsed dye laser, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, and surgical excision. Many of these treatments stimulate the production of collagen in the skin to help create new healthy skin cells. These skin cells can help to refresh the skin, filling in acne scars or creating a smoother complexion.
