Deep Acne Scars on Nose

Recommended Posts

Went on a trip early August where I ended up getting sunburned on the nose.  After a couple days it ballooned you into two large cystic acne on my nose.


Did my best to manage it but the acne actually scabbed up.  Ended up with two large deep scars.


The dermatologist gave me a tret prescription and is advising to let it continue to heal for an additional three months, as it’s only been a month, before looking into procedures.  I do see that the scars are continuing to heal and become more shallow, but I’m trying my best to manage my expectations.

After a few days starting tret:


From my childhood I did have an indented chicken pox scar on my nose as well so I may be prone to nose scarring.

Any recommendations for specialists in Toronto? Possible procedures for scars like this?

If it's only been a month, you really need to allow your skin time to heal properly. For treatment, depending on how your scar heals, you could get subcision with filler to lift the scar, TCA to smooth out the edges, and laser for pores and pigmentation.
