Treating acne scars can be challenging, and in the majority of patients, more than one acne scar type is visible. Each type of scar has a optimal way of treating it. For example, red scars do well with vascular lasers, ice pick scars do will with TCA Cross chemical peels. In turn the type of skin colour will determine the concentration I choose. Rolling scars do best with Fractional or Fraxel lasers, whilst box scar scars do best with CO2 laser resurfacing or Erbium lasers. Scars that are tethered do best with subscision and surgery.
The Synergy Scar Treatment program finally address all types of acne scarring. This program uses 3-8 techniques, depending on the scar type, skin type and down time to come up with a tailored program.
