Treatment for Mild Acne Scars

Thank you for your question. I would recommend controlling the acne, if not already, to prevent more scarring. Lasers, peels and/or injectables are treatment for acne scarring. I would recommend consulting under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist for safest and best treatment option. I hope this helps.

Once acne scars are treated, they shouldn't come back if no acne occurs.

I just wrote a nice blog about treating acne scars.  Most people need the Fraxel 1550 to improve anything but very mild scars.  Plan on up to 10 treatments and expect improvement, not resolution of the scars.
