I have acne scar and hyper pigmentation. where do i go to get rid of it and what type of treatment do i ask for?

Deramtologist

Sebum
The vi peel is safe for any color skin and can lighten dark areas in one week. It can be pre treated with bleaching agents containing hydroquinone, kojic acid or coffeberry extract. It will have an effect on scars, but Fractionated laser will be required for a long term result for scarring.Either co2 or erbium are affective, but erbium is better tolerated by darker skin types.

Which is better for acne scar treatment - derma roller / laser?

Both

Acne
Both are great treatments in the right hands. Only go to a Dermatologist with a lot of experience, not just any laser or salon that does these treatments. It can be horrific if performed in the wrong hands.

Dr. David J. Sire answered:

Is laser treatment effective for acne scar removal?

Yes

Cicatrix
The improvment of the acne scars by laser depends on the type of scar and the patients skin type. The atrophic acne scars are improved by the fracional CO2 or Erbium lasers, but the ice-pick and box car type scarring is not improved much. Your need to seem and experience dermatological laser surgeon for evaluation.

Dr. Bob Ourian answered:

Can I use oxy 5 on my acne scar and how to make my large pores less visible using home treatment?

Yes and no

Scarring
You can use it on your acne scars but it's not going to do anything. Oxy 5 (benzoyl peroxide 5%) is used for treatment of acne (pimples), not acne scars. It also has no effect on the size of pores. The treatment for acne scars and pores is usually laser resurfacing.

Will it take more than one laser acne scar treatment to diminish the scars on my face?

Depends on modality

Head-face
Laser treatments for acne can only soften the scars, but do not completely erase them. The non invasive lasers build collagen slowly, take multiple procedures and are costly. The more invasive treatments (Ablative Fractional Resurfacing or full face Ablative Laser Resurfacing with CO2 or Erbium laser) has both the abrasion affect as well as the collagen building benefit, but more down time.

Could a acne scar treatment cause discoloration to my facial skin? I am considering having dermabrasion done to help diminish my acne scars. A friend of mine told me that this type of acne scar treatment can cause the skin to become discolored. Is this tr

Yes

Acne
Most ablative procedures could cause hyper or hypopigmentation. Treatment with platelet rich plasma, depending on what kind of acne scars you have could be a better option with lesser to no risk of hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation

Tell me about laser acne scar treatment?

It works VERY well!

Pimples
The CO2 laser works very well for acne scars of the face. The CO2 laser emits invisible energy that is absorbed by the skin, vaporizing a very thin amount of the surface. The laser energy also stimulates production of new collagen. This results in the skin becoming smoother, and ultimately stronger and thicker than before the treatment. It may not get rid of ALL the scars, but it really helps!
