Treatments for acne scars

Thank you for your question Tharkas. There are many options to treat acne scars such as fillers, microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, chemical peels, and fractional lasers. In my experience I find that fractional laser resurfacing (CO2, Er:YSGG, Er:YAG) provides the best and longest lasting results. Often time a series of three to five treatments are required and it can take up to a year after the final treatment to see full results. Patience is important. Products such as TriLuma can address discoloration while simultaneously stimulating the formation of new, fresh, and healthy collagen. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
