Acne scarring most often occurs on the face, chest, and back. While the scars can range from slight depressions to deep and hollowed ones, they can result in emotional distress and self-esteem issues.

 The UC Davis cosmetic dermatology service offers a number of effective treatments that smooth scars and improve skin tone including laser skin resurfacing, fractionated laser rejuvenation, photofacial and light source rejuvenation, chemical peels and microdermabrasion. The number of treatments needed to reduce the appearance of scars depends on each patient’s response to treatment as well as the depth of the scars and the location involved.

If you would like to discuss minimizing the appearance of your acne scars, please request a consultation to speak with our cosmetic dermatologists. Please call 916-734-6111 or 800-770-9282.
