There are several reasons for the scarring caused by previous acne. It might be due to the acne you have had during adolescent hormonal changes. It might also be because of a poor diet filled with acne-causing additives. Whatever the reason, acne scars can be unattractive. There are several ways to reduce or remove scarring, and there are many reasons why treating acne scars can dramatically improve your life.
A Look at Laser Treatments
Laser treatments are, by far, one of the most effective ways to treat acne scars. After a series of regular Fraxel laser treatments, acne scars can disappear almost completely, depending on the situation.
Laser treatments for acne scarring removal exfoliate the skin. The topmost layer of skin, called the epidermis, is slightly removed in a controlled manner, revealing fresh, new and youthful skin underneath.
Treating Acne Scars via the HydraFacial
The HydraFacial is a powerful yet gentle treatment that cleanses and exfoliates the skin. It can be used to minimize the appearance of certain types of acne scars. This treatment is entirely non-invasive and requires zero downtime.

Depending on the type of acne scarring, dermal fillers may be used to fill in the depressed areas. This treatment also involves virtually no downtime and can usually be performed in the comfort of our office in less than one hour.
