Specify which components of acne you want treated

There are few medications that will improve acne scars. However, certain features of these scars my be more appropriately addressed by individualizing your therapy. For example retin-A may benefit some atrophic scars whereas bleaching agents may be useful in management of hyperpigmented scars.
