Evidence for Topical Treatments in Acne Scarring
Acne scarring can occur across the spectrum of acne severity. Even patients with mild acne scarring experience a worsening in quality of life, including increased risk of depression, and avoidance of people and social interactions. Clinical guidelines emphasize the importance of early and aggressive treatment to mitigate further scarring in patients with acne.
