Acne Scars

Acne is a common skin condition, especially in teenagers and young adults. Some individuals with acne are left with scarring, which can result in significant distress and difficulties.

Acne patients often have many different sorts of scars. Scars that form deep pits are called "ice pick scars" and are a classic sign of acne scarring. Scars with a more angular edge, that are either shallow or deep, are called boxcar scars and commonly occur on the temple and cheeks. Scars that create a largely indented area are known as rolling scars. There are now many different ways to treat acne scars, and many patients require a combination of treatments to achieve the best results.

We offer a comprehensive range of the most up to date and effective methods for treating acne scars. Our dermatologists have been involved in cutting edge research on the treatment of acne scarring, and have authored a chapter in a prominent medical textbook on the use of laser treatments in acne. We will carefully evaluate your scars and develop a treatment program to help give you the most successful outcome.
