The optimal therapies for men’s acne scar removal

Treating acne scar with microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and non-invasive skin resurfacing technique. This is a method that does not use chemicals and does not affect the dermis too deeply.

When performing microdermabrasion, the nurse will use a hand-held device to gently remove the surface horn, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, thereby filling the scar. Microdermabrasion is quite safe, and will bring high and long-lasting results if you use it regularly.

  • Safe for all skin colors and different skin types
  • Skin will recover quickly in just 24 hours
  • Helps tighten skin and shrink pores relatively
  • May bring slower results than invasive methods but provide outstanding long-term results if you maintain regular skin care.

Treating acne scar with scar subcision

The dermatologist will use a needle to thread underneath the scar and cut away the fibrous tissue that pulls the scar, helping to lift the scar and stimulate the collagen underneath the scar to increase. Therefore, this method is more effective for round bottom scars (Rolling scar) and square bottom (Box scar). As with other medical interventions, the experience and skill of the treating physician greatly influence the outcome of this method.


  • Very effective for round bottom scars (Rolling scar) and square bottom (Boxcar Scar)
  • Short treatment time
  • Helps increase collagen and elastin, fill scars quickly
  • Give outstanding results immediately after treatment

Treating acne scar with TCA (TCA Cross)

For ice pick scars, the dermatologist will use a sharp stick, dab enough TCA solution on the bottom of the scar to cause a small wound, helping to stimulate the skin’s self-healing mechanism (collagen production) and helps to improve scar depth.


  • Especially effective for sharp bottom scars (Ice Pick scar)
  • Short treatment time and no downtime

This method can be combined with the method of scar tissue destruction to optimally improve the depth of the scar: TCA-dotted sharp bottom scars become round bottom scars, then scar tissue is broken so that the scars are flat with the skin. than.

Treating acne scars with PRP derma roller treatment

The dermatologist will use a high quality medical grade roller to create microles (small lesions) on the skin. Then use PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to stimulate the regeneration of new collagen, helping to fade or fill acne scars.

This method requires highly specialized and technical operators and must be performed in a sterile environment.

Currently, microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a very effective way to treat acne scars, solving most of the limitations of other methods. But before deciding to treat with this method, you need to have a careful evaluation by a dermatologist for medical safety to avoid serious side effects.

Grace Skincare Clinic has successfully applied and treated many cases of pitted scars, which can help improve up to 70% – 80% of scars for customers.


  • Very effective with long-standing acne scars (difficult to stimulate collagen regeneration by other methods)
  • Optimal improvement of all acne scars (dark scars, keloid scars, concave scars) for the entire face
  • Comprehensive skin rejuvenation (improve wrinkles, shrink pores, even skin tone, fade spots, freckles…)

The safety of the customer is our top priority as well as to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment, the specialist will be the one to perform the rolling technique in a sterile environment. Needles and equipment are all imported directly from the United States, certified by FDA (USA) and CE (Europe). Platelet-rich plasma is fully activated, helping to increase collagen and elastin optimally.

0-09-2019 "I would love to thank Dr. Hun Kim Thao and her amazing staffs for helping me through a skin improving journey over an almost year while I was staying in HCM. I received acne facial and peel every other week and the service was superb! Each procedure was well explained and Dr.Thao was very attentive. I loved her holistic way of approach to improve patient's skin. Not only she prescribed very effective acne gel but also shared great tips such as reducing the amount of simple carb intake, cutting down sugar, and most importantly highlighting the importance of getting enough sleep. She even recommended a well known doctor in town who could help me with my sleeping problem. In addition, the price was very reasonable and I was very happy with all the service I got from Grace Skin Clinic. Oh Dr. Thao even asked her staff to make me a cup of tea one day as she she thought I looked overly exhausted. I was very moved. How warm hearted she is! I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to check up their skin and improve their skin. Amazing place!"

Youngjoo Shin – Expat living in HCM 

This place is amazing; they help me improve my terrible skin condition which had affected my identity, and my confidence for many years. I have been visiting Grace Clinic during summer time for the past two years, and every time I am here, they create a different program in order to fit my skin condition and my limited time. Furthermore, people from Grace Clinic always greet me with warm hearts. They once invited me to have boba tea with them which made me no longer feel like a customer but a friend which it has created a friendship overtime. I cannot stress how highly I would recommend this place. Again, they are amazing and very professional. There is one thing, you can do walk-in just fine but it would be better if you schedule the appointment so they can prepare and create the best service for you.

I absolutely love the ladies of Grace Skincare. I was staying in Saigon for 6 months and came here with acne and a congested skin from my travels. So happy I found them! Their prices are reasonable compared to other “expat” clinic that I went to. I bought the 10 facial package for a really good price and am really happy with the result of my skin after following all of their consultations. Acne has cleared up and now we’re focusing on my other skin concerns such as dark spots and hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this clinic. They truly want you to walk out with skin you feel confident in. I’m going to miss this place and the ladies I got to connect with during my time here.   Amazing results · Expert facials · Great deals · Professional products ·Licensed skin care professional · Experienced skin care professionals

Deanna Hong – HCMC, Yoga Instructor

Hey guys it’s been 3 weeks since we came for our treatment. I can honestly say it’s the best I have had done.  Andrew and I look fresh without being overdone. We both had people say how refreshed we look after our holiday. Honestly they wouldn’t be saying that if they knew how much beer and yummy Vietnamese food we consumed when we were there. I can honestly say Andrew and I will be back. And I am telling all my friends how fantastic you guys are and how professional the consultation was. I have yet to find someone in Australia who is so thorough. Thank you, Kylie

Ms Kylie, HCMC, tourist

I had a acne treatment here last month and now it's improved a lot. I must say that this place is very professional, modern equipment, especially the thoughtful doctor! I'm impressed!  

Ms Nana, HCMC, tourist

Alexis Linh Ly, HCMC- Business Owner

The owners are wonderful people. I had a good experience and can sincerely and highly recommend everything about Grace Skincare Clinic!

Sandra Menhart – New York, NY, Visiting Profesor

I was so embarrassed with the scars and pigmentation marks on my face. These are from old sports injuries and harsh products on my legs from childhood accidents. I am fed up with using so much concealer makeup on my face and am never able to wear a skirt with confidence. I heard about the Grace Skincare Clinic pigmentation lightening treatment from a friend.  I took 6 treatments & used skincare product as Dr. Thao  instructed  and now my skin is beautiful and permanently clear. It was worth every penny.

Laura May

as Tet is coming, I highly recommend this place for a weekend retreat, skin detoxing or even an urgent package to soothe and smooth your skin. I got back my healthy skin after just 02 week following the instruction of Dr Thao Hun and it cost me 200,000 for medical consultation fee only. Wonderful!
