Options for facial acne scars

I would use a combination of Ematrix RF combined with light chemical peels and pulsed dye laser to help even out the redness on the skin. Often, I find it useful to use a silicone scar gel such as Plato's Scar Serum to smooth out the scars.

Red marks from acne and hyperpigmentation

The redness would best be treated by the V-Beam and the hyperpigmentation with a combination of chemical peels and hydroquinone.  It will take several months to get improvement of this damage.  Best, Dr. Green
