Hi! I have scarring from acne that I really hate and feel self conscious about. What can I do?

    Dear Ms. Bergman,

    Combination of Fraxel laser treatments and potentially injectables for deeper ones are the best treatment at this time. These provide appreciable improvement provided you active acne is under control.

    Mia,

    My favorite new device to reverse damage from acne, is the Dermapen. It stimulates collagen in the middle layer of the skin, plumping acne pitting. It’s the only therapy that helps with deep pitting. It can level the top edge of the pit to the bottom. Also, it’s great for fine lines and wrinkles on the upper lip. It can be used on all skin types, is much less expensive than laser devices and does not cause heat damage to the surrounding, healthy skin.

    I’d love to meet with you and talk more about the Dermapen, please call my office to schedule a consultation.

    Dr. Sharon

    There are a number of things that can be done, some dematalogic and some plastic surgical. Anything from some local excisions to fillers to dermabrasion to a face lift. You need to be seen in person to know what is right for you.
