A large number of patients at Melbourne City Dermatology seek treatment for acne and acne scarring.
We emphasise the importance of having any active acne appropriately managed before discussing treatments for scarring. This will ensure you have long lasting results.
A qualified specialist dermatologist has many years of training and is the most appropriate specialist to advise on medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments for acne.
It is also important to think about how you feel about your acne scarring and what you would like to achieve. The dermatologists and nurses at Melbourne City Dermatology can advise you on the likely outcome and costs involved with a range of treatments.
The best method to treat acne scarring depends on your skin type, the severity and the type of scarring present:
Intense pulsed light for erythema
Subscision for deeper scarring
Surgical removal of scars
Injections to soften keloid scars
Laser treatments, including fractionated laser
