Acne scar surgery. This sounds scarier than it is. Dermatologists often perform this minor surgery to treat very noticeable acne scars. The goal is to create a less-noticeable scar. The remaining scar should fade with time.
Resurfacing procedures. When a patient wants to diminish the appearance of widespread acne scarring, a dermatologist may recommend a resurfacing procedure. Resurfacing removes layers of skin, which allows the body to produce new skin cells.
Collagen-induction therapy. Also known as “needling” or “micro-needling,” this treatment encourages your body to make more collagen.
