I am a 27 year old black male.

Question:

I am a 27 year old black male. As a teenager I had horrible acne. Now as an adult where the worst of the acne was has very dark scar tissue. Will dermabrasion treatments fix this?

Answer:

I would consider conservative dermabrasion in very small areas of the face in very select cases in patients with no history of keloid formation. However, in my experience, I have more often performed scar revision for non-active acne scarring in African American individuals.
