Improve the appearance of acne scarring, chickenpox scars, ice pick scars, and raised scars with multiple treatment options.
Living with the scarring that often results from acne, chicken pox and/or surgery can take a serious toll on a patient’s mental health. In response, we offer several scar treatment options at our Vadnais Heights, Eagan & Woodbury clinics. While no procedure is available for total scar removal, reducing the noticeability or appearance of scars is possible and can have a significant positive impact on some individuals. A variety of treatment options such as laser treatment, dermabrasion, re-excision, or micro-pigmentation may be used to minimize the appearance of scars.
Reasons for Scarring
Scarring can happen for several reasons. In cases such as acne, the infection below the skin causes our white blood cells to attack the bacteria, but they also destroy some healthy tissue at the same time, resulting in a depressed scar. Chickenpox scars are caused in much the same way. In other cases, a scar may be raised due to trauma to the skin from the outside, such as a cut. After assessing your scarring, your physician will discuss which of our treatment options is most appropriate to get you the best results.
Scar Treatment Options
In some cases a combination approach may be recommended. For example, a vascular laser may be used to reduce red, raised scars, while an ablative laser may be used to smooth out or contour irregularities caused by the scars. Dermabrasion, or smoothing the surface of the scar and surrounding tissue, is another frequently used tool, especially for those seeking acne scar removal. Which methods are used depends on several key factors regarding your scar and possibly may include all of the above mentioned treatment options.
- Acne scarring
- Chickenpox scars
- Ice Pick scars
- Any depressed scars
- Raised scars
- Red/Brown Scars
- Reduced depth of scarring

The staff from the nurse to front desk person were kind, courteous and professional. 10/10 I highly recommend going to this clinic.
Dr. Tolan and the entire staff at Midwest Facial and Plastic Surgery have helped me so much. I am so fortunate to have been treated by him... The entire experience has been so wonderful I don't know why I waited so long?
I have been a client of Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery for around a decade. The staff is so friendly and courteous. My treatments have exceeded my expectations and family/friends are complimenting me on how healthy my skin looks.
Every single person I met during my visit was warm, compassionate, knowledgeable, supportive and helpful. I felt like I was their most important patient of the day even though they had a full schedule. I left my appointment with a full understanding of my options and next steps.
Dr. Farhood made me very comfortable with the procedure from the beginning to the end… He truly cares about us people! He is very confident in his work and that says a lot.
