Laser: Laser resurfacing is the gold standard these days. Dermabrasion is also an option, but co2 laser allows better precision.

Acne scar treatments: Treatment of acne scars starts with prevention of acne, treatment of active acne by local care, blue light therapy etc and finally treatment of chronic scars which can be pit scars(treated by excision or subcision) or red raised/rough surface scars(treated by chemical peels, dermabrasion or best treated by microlaserpeel, contour laser and fractionated laser treatments).

Combo Treatment: In my hand acne scars are best treated with a combination of tumescent anesthesia, subcison and either the Fraxel Repair Laser or the Fotona Fractional Errbium Laser (for darker skin types) The photo is following a single treatment. I have now treated over 400 patients with this combination treatment with an average of 72% improvement in the first 114 patients we studied.
