Acne ScarsQuestion:
I have acne scars on my face and was told the only way to get rid of them was to get a very severe and deep chemical peel, and if my acne came back the procedure may end up being done “in vain”.

A few years ago I heard about the new Harmony Pixel laser for acne scars. If you get treatment from this laser for your scars and you have an acne outbreak does the scaring come back? Also what dermatologists in Northwest Indiana perform the treatment with the Harmony Pixel laser? What is the cost and is financing available? Thank you so much for your help.

First and foremost I’d like to stress the importance of controlling acne vs treating scars left behind. Any time you get an acne breakout it is critical to treat it immediately and of course use a regimen that controls breakouts. Some breakouts result in scarring especially if the acne is picked on.

Keep in mind, laser treatment can get rid of scars, yet you must always work to control future flare-ups. New outbreaks after any treatment can result in scarring all over again. Of course not the same scars, but new scars nonetheless!

As far as referring you to a doctor that performs treatment with the Harmony Pixel laser, I do not know of any off hand. Although, typically the company should have a website which provides “Find a Doctor” or “Locate a Practitioner” section. Do your homework and most importantly develop a relationship with a dermatologist that can help you control your skin changes.
