2. Erbium Laser resurfacing is our treatment of choice for icepick acne scars. The reason is that ice pick acne scars are deeper with sharper edges than other types of acne scars and require a more aggressive approach to achieve improvement. Erbium laser resurfacing involves 5-7 days of social downtime where the face is red and peeling. This is because the upper layers of skin are removed during the procedure, causing regrowth of the epidermis and improved surface texture.
3. Hydroquinone depigmentation programs are used for pigmented acne scars that affect darker skin types. In many skin types (Asian Hispanic, African), once we have achieved a significant reduction in the amount of active acne with our laser procedures brown acne scars will remain. These acne scars are easily treated using a bleaching agent called hydroquinone and it is the active ingredient in several of Celibre Medical’s depigmentation products.
