acne scars, pits are best treated by undergoing dermaroller or collagen induction therapy. this procedure gives a 30 - 40 % improvement over a period of 3 -4 months. chemical peels and microdermabrasion have to be done repeatedly to get good results. sun protection is a must after these procedures.acne scars, pits are best treated by undergoing dermaroller or collagen induction therapy. this procedure gives a 30 - 40 % improvement over a period of 3 -4 months. chemical peels and microdermabrasion have to be done repeatedly to get good results. sun protection is a must after these procedures.

For the management of acne you should take triphala vidang and nagarmotha mixed in equal amount 1 tsf twice a day with lukeworm water. In the meantime you should avoid spicy high calory diet. you can apply clarina ointment twice a day.

Hi!Priyanka ,
Welcome To Healthcaremagic forum,

priyanka,for acne scars esp pits or depressed scars ,the best would be laser resurfacing (fractional laser).Next would be Derma roller ,which is a small instrument which is rolled over skin to cause collagen remodeling ,and thus cause lifting of acne scars.
Chemical peeling has a very minimum result on acne scars.It works best for pigmented lesions or black spots left by acne.Chemical peel is safe if undone under experienced hands of a dermatologist( don't get it done in beauty parlor or by technicians).You require multiple sessions for all these procedures.
If scars are deep then one can go for punch excision and replacement or punch flotation.
So,consult a dermatologist who has above facilities and is experienced to use lasers.
regards,
Dr.chawda

acne marks are usually depressed scars. in such cases dermabrasion or face resurfacing will give you the best result. may take a few months before final result appears but its permanent, it also refreshes your skin so you get extra glow and a fresh look.
