Macular acne scars, also known as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, can occur after acne has been treated. It presents as flat red areas on the face where acne once was. These scars usually fade over 6-12 months, providing acne is well controlled. Specialists at the Brisbane Acne Clinic can use V Beam laser to settle down the redness over weeks. Treatments take a few minutes, and make up can be worn the next day. Most patients will require at least 3-4 treatments over 2-4 months for the best results.
