Acne scars
Few months back I was diagnosed with acne vulgaris on my cheeks both sides and taken proper treatment as prescribed by dermatologist. Now acne is in control but it has left scars on my cheeks. So can you prescribe treatment to remove scars...?

Scars revision is a better term used by dermatologist because most of the times it's difficult to remove scars . Fractional lasers are quite effective if done by a good dermatologist. Meet any good dermatologist for it . U are most welcome at our clinic . U can also read about your problem by clicking www.drsuruchipurimakeovers.com . Meanwhile take care not to prick the acne .

There are a lot of options for treating the scars, like topical application and fractional lasers like resurfax. Are the scars pitted or only red or black ? Type of scars play a bigger role on deciding the course of treatment. Please send a pic, In the meanwhile a sunscreen like Aveil SPF 50 gel and a vitamin c serum like Aveil C-NU at night will start the process of healing. Let me know with a pic clear zoom able close up and past treatment.
