Acne scars – Treatment options?

Patient: I used to suffer from acne and now i have these scars on my cheeks that look like ‘holes’. What can i do to get smooth skin again?

 

 

Doctor: Treatment of acne scars depend on the severity of the scars. Usually the mild scars fade in 10-12 months. More severe ac ne scars may need microdermabrasion, chemical peeling to hasten the recovery process. Laser treatment, skin surgery and grafting are the options available for the removal of resistant scars. Avoid using oil based products and cleanse your face several times a day. A healthy diet and exercise may also help in the regeneration process.
