Time is a key element. Many of these marks fade away or very minimized in time. This in particular applies to scars and post inflammatory pigmentation.Therefore any consideration for an invasive procedure for acne scar treatment such as a laser treatment should be delayed for sometime, maybe two to three months. For those that stay longer, there are many available procedures and creams that can help minimize appearance of scar tissue. Although fresh lesions respond better to laser and some of them totally disappear, response of old scar tissue to treatments is not insufficient. We follow treatments later in this page. Let’s see how prevention may aid decreasing the appearance and development of these disfiguring marks.
