I have multiple acne scars on my chest and back. What can I do?
I really agree with your conclusion on this. With most acne scarring, it is deep enough that superficial treatments like microdermabrasion, creams and glycolic peels won’t help much. A fractionated CO2 laser (like the DEKA DOT or Lumenis Active/Deep Rx) or the even Fraxel Restore (erbium laser – better for more shallow scars) would be the best for you. In the long run, even though they are more expensive, you will waste less time and money and get better results. Please see my article on Fractional CO2 lasers and Acne Scars and Other Scars in Depth. Hope this helps. Dr. I
