Acne scars treatment


Acne scars usually occur as a result of either late commencement of acne treatment or manual manipulation of the inflamed lesions. These scars are difficult to be treated, however modern technologies such as skin resurfacing (using fractional laser) or combination therapy with micro-needling radiofrequency and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can effectively minimize the appearance of scarring.
