Treatments can include topicals that include retinoids, like Retin-A, or a prescription oral medication like Accutane. Other common treatments include: salicylic acid peels, laser and LED therapies, photodynamic therapy (Levulan), Fraxel laser, and intense pulsed light (IPL). LEARN MORE ›

If you have acne scars you will understand my story. If you don't you never will. There is a certain psyche to people who suffer from acne scarring, and for outsiders they will never understand how it can affect your confidence and impact your life- friends, family and work. Removing them was... READ MORE

I paid $2,500 for the Fraxel treatments that I received last year. I came in to see Mari, a Physician Assistant who works part time there to remove minor to moderate acne scars. The treatments were spaced out between 3-4 weeks apart. By the 3rd treatment I was not seeing ANY results and I had... READ MORE

Hi everyone. I am a 23 Years Old white girl currently living in Japan. My story: I have never had real acne issues, but when I was 18 I got big pimples on my right cheek caused by stress (I suppose), pimples which became scars when I turned 19.

I found Dr.Emer from RS. My friend who is also dermatologist in Korea recommended me to do PRP. So I researched for Drs who would perform this procedure. I found Dr.Emer through RS reviews.

I really need some advice on getting the right treatment for my acne scars, these dents/holes have ruined my self esteem so so bad since I got them in late teens (I'm now 31) and I'd do almost anything to get rid of them so I can feel normal again. Problem is I have no idea what procedure is... READ MORE

I look to improve my scarring by at least 40%. I live in Toronto, Canada. I am unsure what procedures to have or who to inquire about these procedures.

I got 100% tca cross done to one cheek today. I did half my face so I would heal faster in the target area and see how it goes. It stung alot and frosted very fast. I'm hoping the results are good, I will post the progression. Still no scabbing. I wasn't sure when I would scab but I assumed I... READ MORE

Underwent two rounds of subcision: first procedure in February, second in April. I think the smaller scars are virtually unnoticeable but I'm not quite sure about a significant improvement in the large clustering of the larger boxcar (?) scars on my cheek. Friends/family indicate a 30-60%... READ MORE

I had moderate acne on my face from age 15-22. We were not fortunate enough to afford Accutane so I had to live with it/cover it up with make up. In college, Proactiv came out and I eagerly tried it. No changes. Around age 23, my acne was gone but I was left with scars on both of my cheeks... READ MORE

It was a pretty long procedure. First he did a CO2 laser then I believe he lifted my skin and put fat underneath to lift the scars. Then he sanded the scars down and lasered and sanded again! My face looked really bad but it's exactly 1 month now and I'm finally able to go out. I still need to... READ MORE
