Acne Scar Reduction

Acne is a common problem Most people are lucky enough to only suffer from mild acne which comes and goes but there are times in which the acne lesions become almost chronic in nature.

If the problem persists for too long or if the acne is severe it can lead to scarring. Scarring also varies from superficial to deep depending on the severity of acne.

It is unknown what actually causes acne but most likely factor is hormonal changes. The most usual period of acneform eruptions is during puberty and adolescence. Pregnant females also often suffer from acne which resolves after delivery


While there is no acne scar cream that will get rid of acne scars quickly, there are a number of methods to help prevent and reduce the appearance of scars.

Mosaic up fractional laser

Mosaic's exclusive patented techniques work by delivering multiple arrays of randomized microscopic laser beams to the skin. These beams produce deep, collimated Micro Necrotic Columns (MNCs) that can penetrate as far down to the reticular dermis, while sparing surrounding viable tissues.

Derma roller

A derma roller is a device that is outfitted with dozens of what is often labeled "surgical-grade needles". It actually looks like it would be painful, kind of like torture devices from the Dark Ages! Rolling this device over your face as directed with a light pressure literally creates small holes in skin. Why do this? Well, the needling is supposed to allow ingredients to penetrate better and improve the look and feel of skin over time.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Micro Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion was developed to improve acne scars, pox marks, and scars from accidents or disease. It's not effective in treating congenital skin defects, most moles, pigmented birthmarks or scars caused by burns. Dermabrasion is generally only safe for people with fair skin. For people with darker skin, dermabrasion can result in scarring or discoloration.

To enumerate a few of the treatment modalities:


It is used for the treatment of acne scars in which the superficial skin is abraded so as to stimulate the growth of new youthful skin especially in the areas of scarring.

Microdermabrasion is a newer technique that uses an abrasive crystal to improve the appearance of

  • enlarged pores
