how can you get rid of acne scars?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Ed Friedlander
44 years experience Pathology
Subspecialist help: Nobody can make the scars go away, but a dermatologist or plastic surgeon can use a 21st-century laser, a filler, or microsurgery to make them less visible. I'm sorry you ended up with scarring instead of having your acne traeted effectively in the first place. Keep in mind that several hollywood leading men have kept their scars for the "tough guy" look. It's your choice.
