Hello, my name is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, board certified dermatologist, and author of "Six Weeks to Sensational Skin." This is about how to remove acne scars, and the first thing that we need to recognize, is that when we talk about acne scars, that really represents a whole spectrum of problems. So that the simplest of all "acne scars" is just a little leftover redness. From someone who's had some really inflamed acne, with this I just ask you to have a tremendous amount of patience and to use sunscreen over the acne scars every single day. And typically within about three to six months, they will fade. The second kind of acne scarring is a waviness to the skin. And this can be helped tremendously by either injections of a filler, the newer ones like Restylane, the hyaluronic acid filler, should last you about a year with an acne scar. Or it could also be treated with a kind of lasers, which can tighten your skin. The third kind, that we call 'ice pick' honestly does need to be cut out by a plastic surgeon, and then sewn up with little plastic surgery stitches. Good luck, this is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo.
