Even after acne has cleared, the healed blemishes can leave behind marks of their visit in the form of pigmentation changes, indentations, and other signs of scarring. These effects may fade over time or become permanent. If less than one year has elapsed, a red or hyper-pigmented lesion may still be in the process of healing and may require further treatment. However, long-lasting marks that have existed beyond 12 months require a different approach to effectively clear. At our practice, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim employs a variety of advanced methods to improve the texture and tone of your skin and reduce the appearance of acne scars. The appropriate modality will be selected based upon the severity of your condition, and the strength of the treatment will be increased as necessary to achieve the best possible outcome.
