After acne clears up, many people are left with unsightly scars. The appearance of these scars range in color, texture and size. They can take the form of hyper-hypo pigmentation, pitting, and over-production of scar tissue. Fortunately, at NewDermaMed we employ the most advanced technologies to safely and dramatically reduce the look of all acne scars by reducing pigment, brightening skin, and evening out complexion.
