The Derm-Approved Ways to Deal with the Most Common Acne Scars


For those who suffer from acne, current pimples aren’t always the problem, often it’s the scarring that’s left behind that can leave many of us feeling less than confident rocking a bare face. So why does this happen in the first place, and beyond applying a full-coverage foundation, what are the options at hand to deal?

More often than not, acne-sufferers don’t exclusively have one type of scarring—it’s usually a mix of those listed above. “Chemical peels can be a great way of addressing pigment changes and superficial scarring,” explains Michele Farber MD FAAD, a dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group. “For deeper scars, microneedling and fractionated laser resurfacing can generate controlled injury to skin to stimulate controlled wound healing to rebuild collagen within indented scars,” she adds.
