Health Tip: Treating Acne Scars
-- While there is no perfect treatment to eliminate all acne scars, there are remedies that can significantly reduce their appearance.
The Nemours Foundations offers this list of potential options:
- Laser resurfacing, which removes the top layer of damaged skin.
- Dermabrasion, which wears down the skin, fostering a new, smoother layer of skin as it heals.
- Fractional laser therapy, which affects deeper layers of skin without damaging the top layer.
- A chemical peel.
- Injections or surgery.
