Alternatives to Acne Scar Surgery

There are a huge selection of acne scar removal treatment available some of which may be more suitable for your type and level of acne scarring. Acne scar removal surgery is most effective on large, severely pitted acne scars and the subcutaneous incision form of the treatment is especially good for rolling acne scars. However the treatment doesn't normally completely remove all traces of scarring. Often another treatment is carried out after the scar has been operated on as the scar is more likely to respond well to other treatments after surgery. Often laser skin resurfacing, chemical peeling or dermabrasion are used after acne scar removal surgery, providing good results. If your scarring is not heavily pitted or rolling you may find that other, less invasive procedures will work just as well.

The best way to decide upon the ideal treatment for you is, of course, to consult your doctor or dermatologist. They will be able to inspect your scars, tell you what kind they are and point you towards the best treatment for your particular type of scarring.
