Acne scars and laser treatment
Your skin and acne scars need to be treated after your acne is under control. Once you do not have anymore severe break outs you can then have Fraxel or eMatrix therapy. You may need to do a course of Accutane if nothing else helps get your skin under control. I have used both Fraxel and eMatrix for severe acne scars such as yours with excellent results. Please be certain to consult a dermatologist with a great deal of experience with cosmetic lasers for the best results.
Treatment for Hypertrophic Scars
We are also wondering if any of the hypertrophic scarring is related to ingrown hair and if this is the case, laser hair removal may be a good option as well.
Your best bet is an in person consultation. To see photos of other Los Angeles laser resurfacing patients for acne scars, check the link below.
