Scarring from acne spots between breasts. What can I do? (Photo)

Im so embarrassed by this. Would this be able to be fixed? I suffered bad spots when younger and they would burst and bleed on their own which resulted in horrible scarring. Ive suffered these scars for 18 years. They psychologically effect me bad. I dont suffer with these spots anymore

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen

A combination approach with surgery, lasers, fillers, subcision would do well for this.  Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

Acne Scars on Breasts

I would consider treating these scars with eMatrix laser since this will be the most effective way to heal these scars.  It may take several treatments to see improvement because of the nature of these scars.  Please consult an expert with these lasers.  Best, Dr. Green

I would recommend our highly popular Hidef Acne Scar Protocol that includes Ematrix RF, subcision, fractional laser, Clear and Brilliant, acne surgery, TCA Cross, and light chemical peels. This will work great on your breast scars.

Acne scars on chest

In my opinion, you have depressed, atrophic scars and  depressed, box cars scars as well as raised papules. Acne scars are treated based upon their type. Often the depressed scars will  benefit from subcision, radio frequency micro needling  (infini) and fillers. The raised scars initially could be treated with inralesional steroids or 5 FU or  Verapamil. Should the raised scars not respond, an ablative  or non-ablative  laser followed by injections or steroid tape is helpful. Find a scar expert who will show you pictures. Hope this helps. Good luck.
