What kind of treatments are there for bad acne scars?

Hi Doctors,

I encountered bad pimple outbreaks when i was younger during puberty which resulted me having very bad acne scars. This scars makes my face look very old. The acne scars covers my forehead, nose and cheeks.

What kind of treatments are there available for me to “level” the pimple scars? I have never tried any treatment before. Please advise.

Dear JessicaEvans,

It sounds like you are suffering from depressed (atrophic) acne scars. There are actually a few different subtypes: box, rolling and ice pick scars are all depressed scars.

Basically a large range of skin energy-based devices can help to level them – there is an article on acne scar treatments on DxD that summarizes these devices. Subcision, fillers and medical peels to free up scar tissue and enhance collagen growth over the scar areas can also help complement. Skincare is also important to prevent worsening of your current condition.

It would be useful to see some pictures of the affected areas of your face, or go for a proper medical consult (dermatologist or aesthetic physician) to be able to help you further.

Hope this helps!
