Dermatologist 's  Response

Thanks for choosing HCM..,

Holes on face...called Postpitted acne..,

It is Atrophic scar...,

Good treatment is available ...,

LASER is the best..,

There have been a number of exciting advances in laser medicine...,

which have resulted in vast improvements in our ability to treat acne scars....,

1) In the early days of laser medicine they used a Carbon Dioxide laser..,

which destroys the top layers of the skin,

reasonable risk of side-effects with CO2 laser,now it is giveup..,

2) NON-ABLATIVE LASERS.. which, unlike CO2, do not remove the top layers of the skin...,

and are non-destructive. These lasers have less risk and...,

are more effective at treating acne scarring than the ablatives....,

My treatment of choice..,

3) PULSED DYE LASER... One of the benefits of the pulsed-dye laser is...,

that it can take the redness out of the acne scars....,

Since often acne scars are red, this can very quicklY.,

within a month, improve the appearance of acne scars tremendously..,

4) FRACTIONAL LASER...., have been reported to produce remodeling in acne scars without the downtime of ablative resurfacing.

So follow up the case accordingly..,

Consult good dermatosurgeon...good luck

These could be ' acne scars' usually a sequale to the pimples.

First and foremost do not squezze if you have any new pimples.

For the exisiting ones you can go for Micrdermabrasion or Fractional laser.
