Acne and dark acne scar marks.
Once this is done, you have a few treatment options.
1. Bleach - 5% HQ cream for 8 weeks
2. Sunscreen during this time.
3. Use of Picosure or nanosecond Q switch lasers - low dose over 3 months.
This will improve things significantly.
All the best,

There are two components to treat your scars and dark marks. First you need to start using hydroquinone and retinoids to even out the pigmentation and chemical peels. Next, you need to have eMatrix for the scars themselves. Please consult an expert for the best results. Best, Dr. Green

Since we can't "get rid of" scars our goal is to improve the appearance of the acne scars with multiple treatments. In addition, if you have brown spots left over from the acne we can improve that appearance with microneedling or VI Peels.
For patients who are good candidates we also use the CO2RE laser as well as Vbeam if the scars have a red color to them.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
