To treat Acne Scars, it is essential to understand different types of scarring (hypertrophic scars and atrophic scars ie. rolling, box car, icepick scars) as treatment of each scar type has different protocols and require different approaches. Certain specialised skills and different equipment are also required depending on scar type. This module will guide practitioners in the assessment nd identification of different types of acne scarring, and discuss the most effective treatment options for each type of scar.
