Acne scarring? What is the best option?
Hi Makdad, this is a frustrating problem, isn’t it? There are lots of good options for acne scarring now but not all of them are available everywhere. Learn more information on acne scars in general and also read about Fraxel lasers and carbon dioxide lasers. And you’re right, creams, etc. can help control acne itself, but they don’t help with scars.
I think the biggest problem though is finding a well trained, reputable dermatologist or plastic surgeon to help you because there are many undertrained or sometimes just unethical people advertising these services. Be very careful! Learn How to Find a Good Dermatologist.
Hope this helps, Dr. B I
