Acne Scars on the Nose
Treating acne scars and the most effective method
Treating acne scars is a complex process and depends on the depth of the scars and your facial tone and skin color. Not all lasers are for all patients. There are multiple treatments involved and can also be more than one laser if you are treating redness or discoloration as well as "ice pick" scars. I prefer the Fraxel and eMatrix for these indications. Micro needling is not as effective as the lasers are. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these lasers for the best cosmetic results.
