The most recent advance in acne scar treatment, particular in darker skin types is the Infini, Microneedling RF
Lasers have been the mainstay to treat acne scars, however I think times are changing. Without the pigmentation risks and downtime, the Infini is going to become the treatment of choice for acne scars. Darker skin types have high risk of hyperpigmentation and there is essentially no risk of this with the Infini. Please read my blog for more details. You can never expect complete resolution of the scarring, expect improvement of 35-60%, after about 5 treatments. Steve Weiner, MD, Facial Plastic Surgeon, Destin, Florida.
Laser for acne scars
The Fraxel laser has become the gold standard for treating acne scars. The IPL laser cannot treat the scars - only some redness and sun damage. The eMatrix also works very well for these acne scars. For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience in lasers.
