Hello Acne.org forum I am Rene. I signed up though I have looked at this site for few months. I have a sunken scar on my forehead.


I forgot how got it, less than a year ago, probably due to some acne? I read several ways to treat sunken scars:


injecting collagen/fillers/etc,


laser resurfacing,


punch excision.


I was just wondering if anyone here could please offer advice which is the best one? I don't think I want to inject anything into it or acid...maybe something more permanent?

I am half german half italian, I have darker skin than most and am afraid dermabrasion or and laser resurfacing might get hyper/hypo pigmentation? Also maybe these don't work. I read they only can lessen the appearance of sunken scars...mainly used for elevated scars?

So maybe subcision or punch excision? I don't know if these treat for different things, I heard subcision is less surgery/risk involved...true?

What about if I took accutane before ---maybe 9 month ago---, and want subcision or punch excision now? Is there any more risks involved??

Do dermatologists or plastic surgeons handle these procedures?? Which one would be better for which procedure??

Sorry for so many questions.

I appreciate anyones help, please!!!
