Atrophic acne scars can present as diverts or depressions on the skin, and most frequently occur on the cheeks. These types of acne scars are secondary to a loss of collagen and respond well to a variety of scar treatments. If the scar is tethered, subscision can help release and improve scarring. Laser treatment with deep fractional/ Fraxel laser can also stimulate collagen production. Collagen can also be replaced with dermal fillers and a process called dermal grafting.
