Acne scars come in many different shapes, sizes and even colors. Each type of scar has its own unique characteristics and features. Because of these differences, the available treatments are not one size fits all. In order to achieve optimal results from your treatment it is important to carefully choose the treatment that best fits your needs.
There are three main groups: Depressed (pitted scars), Raised (keloid scars) and Discoloration scars. Within those groups, Dr. Good will discuss which type you have and what the current research indicates would be the best treatment option for your condition/situation.
Treatment options may include:
HYDROQUINONE (inhibits the production of melanin)
TOPICAL RETINOIDS (increases the rate of cellular turnover in the skin)
