Hello doctor,

I have many deep acne scars on my face. I have shown to many doctors but did not get a good result. I have found now that lastly, I will have to go for laser treatment. Please suggest me what to do.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Treatment of acne scar depends on the type of scar. There are various treatment modalities for scar for instance subcision, it is a surgical procedure to release the tight bands below the skin that is holding the scar, injection of platelet-rich plasma, TCA (trichloroacetic acid) cross, deep chemical peels, Co2 (carbon dioxide) laser resurfacing. Discuss these options with your Dermatologist.

Co2 laser is effective and gives good results but again I do not know the type of acne scar that you have. Please attach your clinical picture along with your query so that it is convenient for me to give appropriate suggestions.
