See a Cosmetic Dermatologist for Wound Care

I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist for wound care to prevent scarring and treatment for active acne. I recommend silicone gel with growth factors. Scars can be treated with lasers, microneedling/prp, subcsion and filler. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
