Types of Acne Scars

By figuring out the different types of acne scars, you will most likely have a greater understanding of the process and techniques used in treating them. They come in various kinds – from atrophic to hypertrophic to the ice-pick types. At Dr. Robert Langdon’s clinic, the following criterion is employed in identifying acne scar types:

Type I – shallow scars with small diameters
Type II – deep scars with small diameters
Type III – deep scars with large diameters

A combination of these types may also translate to a combination of different kinds of treatment recommended by Dr. Langdon.

The most effective way of treating acne scars is achieved by employing fractional laser resurfacing. Dr. Langdon offers the Fraxel laser and Fractional CO2 laser treatments for clients seeking minimal downtime while improving their overall facial texture, tone and appearance.

Type 1 scars are effectively treated with Fraxel laser while Type 3 scars respond well to Fractional CO2 laser treatments. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are also proven to smoothen out Type 3 scars.
Dr. Langdon treats Type 2 scars via the CROSS technique or through a punch excision. The former involves placing a droplet of chemical peel acid into the acne pit.


The outcome of the procedure will be greatly influenced by your preparation measures.

1. Broad-spectrum sunscreen should be used as much as possible before the procedure.
2. Avoid getting a tan weeks before the procedure. The darker your skin, the greater the heat absorbed. Skin discoloration and/or injury may result from too much heat. You might want to use a skin-lightening cream with retinol for the most natural and balanced results.


Redness, minor swelling and a slight discoloration may be observed after a laser acne treatment. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight for 2-3 days and consistently use sunscreen.

Dr. Langdon and all of his nurses and staff are very friendly and they know how to make you feel very comfortable. He is a very experienced doctor, I call him an artistic dr. because he’s so precise in his work. If you would like something done right, dr. Langdon is the one to see. I am very pleased with my results and very grateful for him and his staff being here in Ct.
