Prevention: By keeping acne under control in your teen years, you can minimize future scarring. Now we have much better treatment options for this, such as levulan. Once the scars are established, they are more difficult to treat, and may require laser, chemical peel, subcision, or a number of other therapies.

Clear up your skin: the best way to prevent acne scars is to not develop acne cysts since these are more likely to scar. If you have acne cysts I would see a dermatologist as soon as possible so you can be treated and prevent scarring. You may need oral antibiotics and a topical retinoids
