How to eliminate acne scars
If you have severe acne, or if you have picked at your spots, you may be left with pitting and scarring when the spots heal. This is permanent, but can be improved by a number of cosmetic treatments.
- Dermabrasion literally planes away the top layer of scarred skin. It can be messy and the results may be uneven.
- Laser treatment is used to help flatten out raised acne scars. It is less effective for pitted or "ice pick" scarring, but can still help.
- Collagen injections are sometimes used to fill out the scars from severe acne. The results are not permanent, and are not as effective for ice pick scars.
