Acne Scar Removal Before and After Pictures

Acne Scar Removal Before and After

Overview | Treatment | Cost

Capturing good before and after photos of acne scar removal can be extremely challenging. Acne causes textural changes in the skin that typically result in small indentations. These indentations can be sharp like ice pick scars or wider and softer like rolling or boxcar acne scars. Capturing these textural changes in acne scars before and after photos can be difficult because of changes in lighting and angle.


Since 2004, we have been successfully improving acne scars with a combination of treatments. We have downtime and no downtime procedures that involve topical (skincare) products for brown acne scars, injections for larger indentations, and laser resurfacing for the ice pick, boxcar, and rolling acne scars. Below you can find a complete list of how we treat acne scars.

We offer the following treatments for ace scars:

  • Red acne scars – Retin A, glycolic acid, or Vbeam laser treatments
  • Brown acne scars – hydroquinone bleaching products (up to 8%) or q-switched laser treatments
  • Ice Pick Acne scars – fractional laser resurfacing
  • Rolling acne scars – subcision with injection products like Restylane or combination MicroLaserPeel and Profractional laser treatments
  • Boxcar ace scars – combination MicroLaserPeel and Profractional laser treatments

The cost for acne scar treatments can vary from a couple of hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars depending on the severity of the condition and the type of treatments prescribed. Some treatments have no recovery and some have a week or more. The good news is that at Celibre Medical, we have three excellent treatment options, topical products, laser treatments, and subcision with dermal fillers.
