Treatments for Acne and Acne Scarring

Acne and acne scarring can be very difficult conditions to treat. However, we have many more treatments available to us today than ever before.  Acne scarring can be prevented by treating acne more aggressively, therefore I would focus your energy on combating your acne first. I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist who spends a lot of time treating acne.  You mentioned topical treatments that did not work. There are oral prescription treatments that can be very effective in combination with topical prescription and non-prescription treatments. There are also office-based treatments such as Isolaz that significantly improve acne through a series of treatments.
