You have a choice of many in-office procedures. Your dermatologist can help you decide the best course of action for your acne scars.

Most people in our generation have probably faced acne once in their lifetime. The years of puberty and hormonal changes can cause acne scarring that always comes through photos and ruins confidence. In fact, once you've removed blemishes you will notice another problem called scarring. These scars are left behind by the damage caused by acne. There are so many remedies to improve active acne, but scarring is one such thing that doesn’t fade away without taking proper acne scar removal treatment. Let’s read in detail about the different types of procedures you can take for acne scars.

The most effective in-office procedures for improving acne scars

There are several in-office procedures you can choose from. You can discuss with your dermatologist for choosing the best option for your acne scar. It is not unusual for a person to have more than one procedure to restore the skin as it depends on your skin texture and how much scarring you have. Below are some of the top procedures used by dermatologists.





Chemical Peels:

A chemical peel is a kind of acne scar removal treatment that helps in removing the layers of skin thereby revealing the fresh skin underneath. It is also known as derma peeling or chemexfoliation where it reduces any kind of fine lines, scars, acne, hyperpigmentation, and other forms of skin issues.

A chemical peel is performed under expert supervision in a clinic or surgery center. In this treatment, your skin will be cleansed with the help of an agent to remove excess oils. After that, a chemical solution is applied to the affected areas. The chemical solutions normally used by dermatologists are glycolic acid, salicylic acid, carbolic acid, lactic acid, or trichloroacetic acid. The different types of chemicals cause controlled injury and go into deeper layers of skin. After it's done, the chemical solution is washed off making your skin feel much more defined.


If you suffer from any kind of acne scars, surgery or accidents, precancerous rough patches or melasma, dermabrasion helps in giving you smoother skin. Even this procedure is performed by experts and is considered to be low risk.

In this acne scar removal treatment, your dermatologist will discuss your skin issues and what expectations you have with the procedure. During this consultation, they will also go ahead to describe the anesthesia type, procedure, and realistic results you will get. This outpatient procedure is great. Generally, a 50% improvement means positive results. After this procedure, make sure to stay away from sun, smoke, and drugs for a few weeks.





Laser Skin Resurfacing

This is another kind of acne scar removal treatment that helps in reducing wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation, removing lesions, and tightening the skin. Lasers are light beams that vaporize the skin’s outer layers and promote the growth of new collagen fibers. This procedure removes the epidermis and heats the dermis.

There are different types of laser skin resurfacing like Co2 Resurfacing, Erbium, and Fractional skin resurfacing. Co2 Resurfacing is used to treat benign and malignant skin conditions. Erbium is designed to remove deep lines and wrinkles. Fractional laser resurfacing delivers a much narrower column of laser light that helps in improving the appearance of the skin.
