Acne scarring is a frustrating problem for both patients and physicians. It has a high prevalence (up to 95% in studies) and can be psychologically devastating to patients with severe cases. The cause of acne scarring is complex and poorly understood.
Dr. Fife has a special interest in the treatment of acne scars in patients of all races and skin types. He spent 2 years working under renowned acne scarring therapy experts in Orange County, CA and Chicago, IL. His training taught him that every acne scarring patient cannot be approached in the same way—each case must be carefully evaluated, treated by the most appropriate modality, and monitored closely postoperatively for side effects.
The Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center offers comprehensive treatment of acne scarring.
