For Acne Scars, Treatment(s) Should Be Tailored To The Specific Kinds Of Scars
For pit scars, for example, we can offer the punch excision and CROSS techniques. For depressed acne scars, rolling and box scars, we can perform subcision, with or without the injection of volumizing agents. To blend the surface of the off-colored scars with the remainder of surrounding normal skin, we can perform fractional medical microneedle therapy, and for more resistent sites, we might opt for a more focused spot dermasanding technique. For a more detailed discussion of each of these individual methods for acne scar treatment, I suggest you check out the archives of RealSelf.com, and I would strongly urge consultation with a board certified aesthetic core physician experienced with all these approaches.
