I want to get rid of deep acne scars. Do I need Microdermabrasion, Chemical peels or laser therapy? I have tried pills from dr & creams even blue light

Professional help. I am sorry you tried worthless cures, and if someone charged you money for "blue light" therapy, I would urge you to contact your local prosecuting attorney. Pills and creams won't touch these. You'll need to get with a specialist dermatologist or plastic surgeon for a filler, microsurgery, or laser work. Especially, if you see a kid whose acne is being neglected, say something. Best wishes. Read more...
Resurfacing. Skin resurfacing by a chemical peel, laser peel, or dermabrasion will be the only ways to improve on severe acne scaring. Of them i prefer dermabrasion for acne scaring because you can "shave" the top of the skin (mountains) more efficiently while leaving the scar tissue (valleys) untouched. this way the difference between the valleys and the mountains is decreased. Hope this helps. Read more...

Help please! Is chemical peeling product or raser is good for get rid of acne scars?

Laser is better. Laser resurfacing is better to improve acne scarring. I recommend the fraxel laser. Four treatments are usually required, but the results will be significantly better that with chemical peeling. The fraxel works well for acne scarring, as well as fine lines and wrinkles and photoaging. Fraxel can be used on most skin types, and all over the face and body. The fraxel laser is fda approved.

Hi doctor! How effective is neostrata glycolic acid face wash (18%) for grade 2 acne scars? I underwent 30% salicylic acid peel thrice. Not much use. So if the face wash is effective then Please suggest a regimen too. Thank you

Forget this stuff. Nothing you can do on your own is going to touch the acne scars. I'm sorry your acne wasn't treated as it should have been, but you do have the option of getting seen by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who may offer laser work, filler, or microsurgery. Best wishes. Read more...

Please explain microdermabrasion to me! I have bad acne scars (not deep tho) how long after Accutane can I do it, how long tell it works, how much money?

Accutane . it basically abrades the top layer of your skin to remove damaged skin. I do not recommend it for at least 1 yr after stopping accutane. Never do it with active acne breakout. We are not here to give you prices. Talk to your dermatologist who prescribed accutane. Your scars may improve mildly if performed properly. Read more...

Is the only option microdermabrasion if I want to get acne scars removed?

Acne scars. One important factor is prevent new scars-get your acne under control. Find a dermatologist to tackle that with you. Most treatment to improve the appearance of acne scars use special technology to remodel the skin. The device I use to treat acne scars is called ematrix--see for info: http://www.Smacboca.Com/e-matrix-sublative-rejuvenation.Html other options include fractional lasers or subscision. Read more...
