In brief: Acne Scars

Typically your dermatologist will prescribe different topical medications and possibly oral medications depending on the severity of your acne.
In order to reduce the appearance of scars, a topical retinoid may be prescribed to help increase the rate of cell turn over. It is extremely important to protect your skin from the sun as this can make acne scars look worse.
