Grade 1 Acne Scarring
This involves mainly surface and colour issues, with areas of scarring showing up as flat, pink areas, and in some cases brown (especially in darker skin types) or too white. Treatment options in this case include: skin products to use at home (e.g. containing vitamin C, retinol, tretinoin, hydroquinone, azelaic acid, glycolic acid), medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser (e.g. Genesis) and broad band (BBL) or intense pulse light (IPL). Microneedling (medical-grade) +/- PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or RF (radio frequency; e.g. Forma®) is also particularly helpful for mild/Grade 1 acne scarring.
