ACNE SCARS
Peels.

Some, more aggressive peels, can improve the appearance of mild scars.

Microdermabrasion.

As above, can improve the appearance of mild scars. Minimal recovery time.

Intense Pulse Light.

This will improve the redness and brown pigmentation but not the depth of the scars. Treats the colour changes and restores skin to a more youthful appearance. Minimal recovery time. Usually needs at least two treatments.

ProFractional Resurfacing.

A laser treatment with excellent results. Recovery could be several days but definitely worth it. Deeper scars will require more treatments.

Fillers.

Fillers such as hyaluronic acid (Juvederm, Teosyal) can be injected under the scars to lift them. Needs to be repeated about yearly.

Subcision.

After anaesthetic, a small knife like needle is used to break the scar bands letting the skin lift up by its own healing process. Some bruising for a few days only.

Excision.

Small, deep scars are often removed using a punch biopsy. This creates a tiny hole in the skin which heals very well leaving no pitted scar.
