Laser treatments can help address acne scars
It would have been ideal if you provided photos of the acne scars on your face so that I could provide a more specific response. Regardless of the extent of scarring, one must start with aggressive treatment of the acne to prevent further scarring. This can be done with an Accutane prescription from your doctor. It is also important that you don’t pick at your skin.
Scars result more from picking than from acne itself. Once acne is under control, surgical scar revision is an option but keep in mind that scarring is a permanent condition so such treatments can improve the condition but rarely remove it. Depending on the kind of scars you have, which can include: Icepick, boxcar, rolling, hypertrophic, hyperpigmentation scars, a variety of treatments can be considered ranging from laser, dermabrasion, augmentation, subcision, punch, chemical peels, skin needling, steroid injection, cryosurgery and/or topical applications. Multiple treatments are very often combined for optimal results, especially in cases of more severe scarring.
