Surgical Excision of Acne Scars

Surgical excision of an acne scar is best for broad based or wide type acne scars (boxcar) or deep "ice pick" scars.  An alternative treatment for these types of scars is liquid silicone or subcision combined with temporary fillers.  Shallow acne scars or diffuse scarring of the cheeks is best treated with Fractional CO2 Laser resurfacing with the Total Fx laser.   Deep depressions from scars can also be treated with microfat injections.    You may need just one or a combination of these treatments depending on your particular scarring.  This can only be determined after a thorough consultation and analysis of your skin
