I got acne scars and very small acne holes on my face how much does it cost for treatment and can i know what is the cost for laser resurfacing for my acne scars
The options for treatment of small atrophic (indented) acne scars on the face are usually;
a) Fraxel laser. See https://www.thevictoriancosmeticinstitute.com.au/fraxel-laser/
Helps to stimulate new collagen and grow the atrophic areas back to the level of normal skin. Costs of treatment on webpage link.
b) Skin needling – See https://www.thevictoriancosmeticinstitute.com.au/skin-needling/
Similar to Fraxel, but a mechanical way of doing it instead of laser. Much more aggressive than Fraxel, and you can get greater improvement with one treatment, but it takes longer to heal. Costs outlined on webpage link.
c) TCA CROSS https://www.thevictoriancosmeticinstitute.com.au/tca-cross/ This is more of a focused treatment for a few atrophic scars. See webpage link for more info.
