Acne scar treatments for dark skin
Highly effective laser treatment to reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars
Profractional can be combined with MicroLaser Peel which resurfaces the skin to improve overall tone in the skin. These procedures are minimally invasive and require a short period of down time.
Broad Band Light Therapy (BBL) is an effective alternative to oral acne treatments. The wavelengths in the blue light spectrum attack the p. acne bacteria which are responsible for acne breakouts. A series of 8 weekly treatments is recommended depending on the severity. The session lasts approximately 20 minutes with minimal discomfort. Temporary mild skin reddening and swelling may occur for 1-2 days following the treatment but can be covered with makeup.
Discussing theses treatments combined with a home skin care regimen with your provider can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars and lesions.
Best Treatment for Acne Scars Black Skin NYC
I have had a great deal of experience with dark skin and acne scars. I would not recommend Fraxel or these fast lasers or TCA with black skin. There is too much risk of hyoer-pigmentation. I would recommend doing the EMatrix laser since with the new tip you can penetrate deeply without the risk of burns or darkness. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
