You Don't Have To Live With Acne Scars

As if having acne for years isn’t bad enough, once you do get it to clear up, you are often left with acne scars. Thankfully there are quite a few treatment options for acne scars available. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels also remove the top layers of skin. A chemical solution is placed on your skin and eats off the top layer. The new skin that regenerates after the application is often smoother and doesn’t show acne scars as much.


Dermabrasion is used to minimize the appearance of smaller acne scars. In this procedure the top layers of the skin are removed with quickly rotating diamond edged wheels. As the skin heals, the scars smooth out and leave your acne scars much less apparent.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser Resurfacing works similar to dermabrasion, but in this procedure, a high-energy light beam is used to burn away the scar tissue. As the skin regenerates it’s looks improve. The advantage of laser resurfacing over other techniques that remove top layers of the skin is that this treatment is more easily controlled and can be applied to very small areas.

Punch Technique

The punch technique works well for deeper acne scars. A small hole is punched in the skin where the deep scar is located. Next a small piece of skin is taken from somewhere else, i.e. behind the ear and is graphed on the punched area, filling in the deep scar.


Collagen or fat tissue collected from other body parts can be used to inject under the scar to move it close to the skin surface. This works well for acne scars that leave a small indentation in your skin. Collagen injections last for about 6 months and have to be repeated thereafter.


Subcision is used when scar tissue bands are pulling down resulting in dented scars. A needle is used to detach the scar from deeper tissue. This allows new connective tissue to form under the scar, raising it up to be more level with the skin, thus reducing the appearance of the scar.

Each of these treatments is suited for different types of acne scars. Please consult with your dermatologist to find out which of these methods would work best with your particular acne scars.
