While acne does affect about 90% of adolescents, only a small majority of those affected are left with scars.
However, those who are left with scars often look for acne scar removal methods that work to remove or
diminish the scars. Fortunately, there are many options available for acne scar removal.

Acne scar removal can be by dermabrasion. This is a process where the top layers of the skin are removed
with the use of a machine that literally abrades the skin. While dermabrasion does give your skin a smoother
appearance, it is not 100% effective for acne scar removal.

a process where the acne scarred skin is gently vaporized, with the use of a laser. Once the damaged skin is
vaporized, the new - unscarred - skin underneath is visible. Local anesthesia is given for small areas, but for
full face acne scar removal, the person is usually sedated with anesthesia administered through an I.V by an
