Acne Scars: The Big Guns

Injectable fillers: Hyaluronic acid injections like Restylane and Juvederm aren't just wrinkle erasers -- they also help swell indented scars, says David J. Goldberg, MD, clinical professor of dermatology at New York City's Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Results last for six months to a year; expect to pay around $600 per treatment.
Fractional laser treatments: Intense beams of light fade red marks and boost collagen to prop up pits. Your complexion may be slightly red and flaky for a few days afterward. At about $1,300 per session, this treatment isn't cheap (and most women need three to five sessions), but doctors do offer package deals.
