I have had acne since I was around 11. I am now 21 and my face is covered in boxcar scars. Would a TCA peel be effective for me?

A photo would be most helpful to offer an opinion to your type of scars. In general, laser treatment is most effective to remove acne scars. Depending on your skin type and the type of scars either Fraxel laser or eMatrix are the most effective lasers. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with lasers for the best cosmetic results.

Fixing scars really depends on three factors-
1. Your type of scars
2. Your skin type
3. Your allowed downtime.
