Yes, we treat acne scarring. Each case is very different both from the degree of scarring as well as the patient’s tolerance for down-time. Treatment will begin by surgically excising any scars which are too deep for resurfacing. We then tailor resurfacing based upon severity and tolerance for surgical down-time. The Fraxel laser works moderately well for acne scarring with down-time limited to a few days with each treatment. For patients who are willing to have more down-time chemical peels and surgical dermabrasion are effective. In patients with a significant atrophic component to the scarring we utilize autologous fat transfer to plump the skin and reduce the pitting of the scarred skin.
