  • If you are considering a treatment for acne scars, you should discuss options with Dr. Gary who is familiar with the use of chemical peels, lasers, subcision, and punch excision of scars. 
  • Ice-pick acne scars 
  • Punch excision followed by a laser such as Fraxel re:pair which is a fractionated CO2 laser device is a reasonable strategy for ice-pick type scars in Fitz type I and II (lighter) skin types. 
  • Ice pick scars are hard to treat: we use a combination of subcision, laser resurfacing, deep chemical peeling to improve these scars. 
  • However, Fraxel laser resurfacing may improve more superficial scarring associated with chronic acne
