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:


  • Chemical peels

  • Intense pulsed light for erythema

  • Subscision for deeper scarring

  • Surgical removal of scars

  • Injections to soften keloid scars

  • Laser treatments, including fractionated laser

  • Radiofrequency treatments
