Although acne scar resurfacing is an incredibly effective treatment, it’s not ideal for every Beverly Hills patient. For example, if you possess certain characteristics, such as a very dark complexion, it may increase the likelihood of unwanted side effects. In these cases, we may recommend an alternative approach that can treat your scars, while still protecting your healthy skin.
In general, the ideal candidate for acne scar resurfacing is an individual with a lighter complexion and elastic skin. You should also be in good general health and without a tendency to scar easily after a minor injury. As long as you meet these general qualifications, there’s a very strong chance that our dermatologic surgeons at The Roxbury Institute can use acne scar resurfacing to improve the appearance of your skin.
