I Have Some Pimple/acne Scars on my Face. Will a Diamond Peel Work for This?

I used to prick pimples on my face which caused some scarring. I wonder if you have heard about diamond peel. Will this probably work with my case?

Diamond Peel for Acne Scars

This could work. You will need something that is particularly strong and done by a physician. A medium depth peel or something a little lighter would be good to do. co2 laser resurfacing should be considered. At least you should be aware of this as an option. The Diamond peel is like any other peel they vary in just how deep they are.

There are much better treatments available for acne scars than the Diamond Peel.

A much more effective was to treat these scars would be a combination of Subcision and Fraxel Repair Laser.
