Acne vulgaris is one of the most common diseases treated by both dermatologists and plastic surgeons. The psychological impact of acne, from the inflammatory eruptions to the post-inflammatory acne scars, can be devastating, especially in a young adult. Atrophic indented scars are the most commonly observed type of acne scars. They result from inflammation in the deep layer of the skin that destroys dermal structures, leading to contraction and indentation of the overlying skin.
Treatment of indented acne scars is notoriously difficult. Multiple different treatments are used to remove, raise, or lighten acne scars. Often, it is the indentation of the scar that forms a shadow in everyday lighting and makes them so visible. Techniques to improve acne scarring include: surgical removal, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Dermapen® micro-needling treatments, and injection of fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane®.
