Acne Scars on Forehead
Fraxel Laser is the best way to treat these acne scars on your forehead. Fraxel has become the gold standard for treating acne scars, especially on the face. It is most important to consult a board certified dermatologist who has a lot of experience with Fraxel for the best cosmetic results.
Great treatments are now available for acne scars.
-surgical removal which is good for deep scars
-some type of resurfacing such as dermabrasion or a laser, these are better for skin that looks rough and there are many scars to treat
-soft tissue fillers such as HA's or Artefill, these are best for isolated dents that have fairly soft edges-this is what I notice on your forehead and this is what I advise for therapy-this is the only time I will use Artefill and our patients have loved the results.
I hope this helps.
Yes, your scars can be greatly improved with a single combination treatment.
