Acne scars are a common, distressing problem. They are more common in people who have had severe inflammatory acne, who have picked or squeezed acne bumps, and who have other family members with acne scarring. Acne scars come in many forms: scars may be discolored: pink, red, purple, or brown. Acne scars also have different architectures: some are broad sloping depressions with rolling borders, others are punched out depressions with sharp borders, and some acne scars are deep “ice-pick” depressions. The first step in treating acne scars is to make certain that your acne is under good control. Your provider will help you do this first, if necessary. Then, depending on the type of your acne scaring, its extent, and your skin type, your doctor will help design a treatment protocol specifically for you. This may include the use of vascular lasers, ablative lasers, the Eclipse MicroPen, topical products, or a combination of these treatments. Improving acne scars most often requires multiple treatments and patience. We look forward to working with you to improve your acne scars.
