In brief: Facial scar revision

Scars caused by acne are more noticeable if they have surface contour irregularities such as a scalloped or ice-pick scar. Facial scar revision if performed primarily for the scalloped or ice-pick type scars to improve the surface contour. You will still have a scar but the goal is to make the scar smoother and less noticeable.
