Acne Scarring Correction is a specialty of Dr. Lam’s, he has become a worldwide leader in the treatment of acne scarring with patients who fly to him from around the world for his silicone correction of this problem.

Combining an artistic eye, skillful hands, and clinical judgment Dr Lam can create impressive correction of a variety of acne scars and acne scarring.
Acne Scarring Correction Technique
Acne Scarring Correction requires the principle goal, when correcting most acne scars is to think opposite to what most physicians do. Acne scars are atrophic conditions, i.e., they are essentially holes in your face. Instead of sanding down normal skin to meet this abnormal skin, Dr. Lam believes that these holes in most cases need to be filled up to meet the surrounding normal skin. His major method of accomplishing this task is through the use of permanent, medical-grade silicone injections that must be performed in a serial fashion, i.e., typically over 2 to 3 treatments (in severe cases 4 to 5 sessions) spread at least a month apart.
For small etch marks, he prefers what is known as a TCA CROSS treatment used to create micro scars so as to raise the collagen over time using multiple sessions. The recovery with this technique is amplified and the results are delayed. However, CROSS is a powerful treatment for very small skin etches that silicone will fail to correct. Using the right technique for your problem (or combination of methods), Dr. Lam will consult with you and treat you the same day since most of his patients fly in and fly out the same day for his acne scarring treatments.
