Dr. Suzanne Cleland-Zamudio on Acne Scar Revision

Facial scars caused by acne can lead people to feel insecure about their appearance. However, advances in technology and procedures mean that a number of solutions are available to remove or minimize scars. Below are some options in scar revision procedures.

-Dermabrasion-This intensive procedure typically uses a CO2 or Erbium-YAG laser to abrade the surface of the skin, and it is most effective on raised, not sunken scars. Complete healing can take months.

-Microdermabrasion-A gentler treatment than dermabrasion, this procedure removes only the superficial layer of skin, or the epidermis. Microdermabrasion results in little downtime, and results can often be seen soon after the first treatment.

-Chemical Therapy-The use of chemical peels is another effective means of scar revision. It involves the application of a chemical solution that causes the skin to peel off, usually over the period of about a week. The skin that regenerates reveals fewer scars and wrinkles.
