Acne Scars

Acne Scars

While acne itself is a frustrating condition, it can leave a footprint long after it’s gone in the form of acne scars. These shallow pits can continue to be an eyesore, emotionally exhausting and depressing. Our comprehensive approach will help remodel collagen thereby rebuilding your skin naturally.

Acne Scars are categorised into 4 types.

  • Box scars – broad depressions with with sharply defined edges.
  • Ice-pick scars – these are deep, narrow, pitted scars.
  • Rolling Scars – broad depressions with sloping edge
  • Atrophic Scars – flat, thin scars or depressed scars Pick Scars

How it Works

Involves use of topical skin resurfacing creams, minimally invasive subcision, subcision with fillers, derma roller and micro-needling treatment.

Subcision is a subcutaneous incision-less surgery for treating acne scars and wrinkles using a 18 or 20 gauge needle. It is performed under local anaesthesia where a 1.5 inch needle is inserted adjacent to the scar and moved back and forth in fan-like motion to snap fibrous bands of the scar.

Some dermatologists post subcision, use hyaluronic acid fillers to lift the scar. The treatment is debatable with some questioning the efficacy and permanency.

Is a hand held device with tiny needles attached to the head. These sharp fine needles are rolled all over the scar tissue which breaks down and stimulate the skin cells to proliferate and heal themselves.

Also called as collagen induction therapy wherein the affected scars or wrinkles are repeatedly punctured using tiny, sterile needles. It can also be done using Microneedling-RF where the depth of penetration can be controlled anywhere between 0.5 to 3.5 mm.

The conventional treatment modalities deliver considerable results with minimal down time and a few possible side effects. Advance laser technologies are indeed updated, safe, clinically accepted, non-invasive and effective treatment options.

  • Scar Contraction- Deep fractionated micro columns of energy cause a lateral contraction of scars so that they simply become smaller from side to side. This is done at the deepest as well as shallow layers of the dermis.
  • Ablation- This smoothens the outer layers of the epidermis so that the skin is smooth to the touch.
  • Coagulative resurfacing – This method causes the breakdown and remodelling of the scar which is rigid and hard into well organised and flexible collagen like healthy soft skin.
  • Removing Hyper Pigmentation or Dark Spots caused by Chronic Acne.

What To Expect Post Treatment

After your laser acne scar treatment, some degree of redness, ranging from a pink to a deep redness (depending on skin type and skin sensitivity) may occur. Patients with photo-sensitivity are advised to use sun blocks and stay indoors, out of direct sunlight for up to 48 hours following treatment.
