My experience with acne scars is a combination therapy of Retin-A prep with Hydroquinone, Fraxel (5-8 treatments), and continued skin care regime.
Fraxelis the front runner. This laser is a safe non-resurfacing laser that is best for acne scars like the ones you are describing. It is best if you can come to our office for a consultation to determine exactly how many treatments are indicated. After each treatment new healthy tissue (skin) will grow in place of the scar tissue. This will give you a smoother and tighter complexion.
The Retin-A and hydroquinone preparation creams will prevent any side effects and also have better results from the Fraxel treatments.
Ongoing skin care is recommended to maintain your results and prevent future outbreaks. We offer medical grade creams and chemical peels that will be individualized to meet your needs.
