Skin 101: Acne Scar Surgery

Read about the latest acne scar surgery treatments

Acne leaves behind many telltale marks, from red marks to pock marks, but the worst of all are those deep acne scars that are difficult to hide and even harder to remove. Fortunately there have been new developments in the skincare industry and one of those advancements is acne scar surgery. There are various types of acne scar surgery procedures available, including laser treatments and scar revision. Depending on the severity and depth of your scars, your dermatologist will give you the appropriate suggestion for your scarring issues. Fraxel laser treatment is one procedure that consists of a laser causing tiny holes in the surface of skin, causing your skin to stimulate collage growth and new skin to grow in, revealing a smoother surface. Several procedures may be required in order to reach optimal results. Read Get Rid of Acne Scars for a list of more acne scar treatments and expert skincare tips.

Scar revision is another acne scar surgery procedure that can be used to treat a variety of skin irregularities. It consists of cutting out the scarring and then closing up the area with a suture, leaving a smaller and less noticeable scar in the place of the previous scar. Typically one can treat the scar with numerous laser treatments and resurfacing techniques in order to yield the best results. Plastic surgeons and dermatologists tend to perform this procedure so make sure you consult with a certified professional before jumping into any surgery.
