Punch Grafting for Acne Scars

by Kayla

I have lot of acne scarring on my cheeks and I feel more concious now since I started a new job. Should I do punch grafting on my skin? How long will it take for me to heal?

Yvette's reply: Without knowing the types of scars you have, it's hard to know if punch grafting is right for you. Since there are many scar treatment options it's best to see a dermatologist who can recommend the most suitable treatment for the types of scars you have. He or she can also give you a more accurate answer in terms of healing time, depending on the treatment option that is required.

Punch grafting is commonly used for ice pick scars, but if you have a lot of scarring, laser resurfacing may be suggested to you.
