Can a Facelift Remove Acne Scars?

Posted: November 30, 2020

Facelift as a surgical procedure can, in minor ways, affect acne scars. Remember, acne scars are a superficial process from something that happened in the past. These things usually are best treated with a superficial procedure, such as microneedling, chemical peels, or laser facials. If, however, there are acne scars in some of the skin closer to your ears, that skin is removed with the facelift procedure and therefore, they will be affected.
