Types of Acne Scars and How to Treat Them

Acne affects people of all ages, and for many of our patients at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, it feels like a constant battle because they spend years being vigilant with their skin care routines and other preventative measures. But even after the acne is gone, patients are often left with scars that are just as frustrating to them as the acne itself. Fortunately, there are plenty of acne scar treatments available, although these treatments will depend on the shape, size, location, and number of scars you have. To bring you up to speed, we’ve created a helpful infographic about the different types of acne scars and how each type can be treated.
