How Much is Acne Scar Treatment?

Doctor Answers 6

Acne scar treatment costs depend on the severity and type of acne scars.

A small acne scar may be corrected with filler for less than $100.  A face full of severe acne scars may require extensive subcision, ablative and fractional laser treatment for over $10,000.    Many experts offer a free consultation for treatment of acne scars.  You should get a face to face consultation with an expert who can estimate the cost for you as part of the consultation.

Combination treatment is needed

The best treatment for acne scars is combination treatment.  i like to do a series of Fraxel lasers, usually 3-5 treatments, combined with silicone injections.  It is difficult to discuss price without seeing the type of acne scars in consult.  On average, Fraxel treatments run anywhere from 500- 1000 per treatment and silicone injections run 800 - 1000 per  treatment session.

Acne Scar Treatments

As mentioned by the other physician, there are many different ways to treat acne scars, depending on the nature and severity of the scars and the type of skin.  It is impossible to discuss cost without doing an evaluation and discussing treatment options based on the evaluation.  I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist experienced in treating acne scars.  Click on the link below to view before and after photos of acne scars mostly treated with injectable liquid silicone (a permanent filler).
