Acne scars are the bane of many teenagers’ lives. They can be depressing, embarrassing and often prevent people from enjoying life to its fullest. But what is acne?
Acne is a skin condition that affects almost everyone in the world at some point in their lives. The type and severity of acne vary according to the individual case, but it usually appears as red bumps or whiteheads on the skin surface. These may leave behind permanent scarring when they heal if not treated properly.
Acne scars may be very common, but they can cause psychological distress. They can affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence, and affect their lifestyle and relationships. Fortunately, it is possible to reduce and even eliminate acne scars with the right treatment.
The most common type of acne scars is atrophic scars. They are depressions on the skin’s surface that usually appear as a result of acne. They develop when there is a loss of tissue, and they can be pitted or linear. There are three types of atrophic scars:
Ice Pick Acne Scars:
Ice pick acne scars usually form in areas where the skin is thin like the forehead and upper cheeks. They are deep, narrow holes in the skin that look like someone has pressed an ice pick to the surface. Ice pick scars tend to be very difficult to treat with any form of topical cream or lotion because they are so deeply set into the skin.
Rolling Acne Scars:
Rolling acne scars tend to form in areas like the jaw and lower cheeks, where the skin is thicker. They can be easily identified by their gently curving edges that give the skin an uneven and wavy appearance.
Boxcar Acne Scars:
Boxcar acne scars are often found on parts of the face that are more exposed to damage such as the cheeks and temples. They are broad depressions in the skin. Boxcar acne scars tend to be round or oval with sharply defined edges.
Hypertrophic and keloid scars are raised bumps that form as a result of damage to the skin. They tend to occur when an injury is left untreated and, in most cases, they will never go away on their own. They can be painful and difficult to conceal with makeup if not treated properly.
At Arra Aesthetics, consultation is the first and one of the most important steps for treatment.
During the consultation, Dr. Vasant Gholave will carefully examine the acne scars and suggest the best treatments to get rid of them. He will listen to the wishes and desires of the patient, and help the patient select the most appropriate treatment. He will guide them through the entire procedure and explain to them the best possible results of the procedure, to ensure that the patient will make an informed decision and have realistic expectations.
Dr. Vasant Gholave believes that it is essential for the patient to be comfortable with the surgeon and that there should be communication between them. So, he encourages patients to ask any questions they may have and he answers all of their questions and doubts, so that the patients may go through the treatment without any worries.
Before it was not possible to remove acne scars by replacing the fibrous tissue with fully functional tissue. The formation of fibrous tissue is customarily considered irreversible. In other words, if a scar was formed, it can only be “smoothed” but not reduced in size. However, things have changed due to a new scars treatment technique from LINLINE.
RecoSMA Laser is the latest groundbreaking technology from LINLINE Medical Systems that rejuvenates and completely restores damaged skin structures. It is a gentle way to trigger skin regeneration. It stimulates the skin to actively produce collagen and elastin, so the scars will become less noticeable after just one session!
Recovery time after the treatment is short, around 2 days. It is a comfortable procedure that does not require any anesthesia.
RecoSMA Laser can effectively be used for the treatment of post-acne scars, whether they are atrophic, hypertrophic, or keloid scars.
At Arra Aesthetics, we suggest using both the scar correction method by laser ablation and the destruction of fibrous tissue and the stimulation of new, functional tissue growth using RecoSMA.
At Arra Aesthetics we also offer a wide range of non-laser treatments for acne scars. Here are a few of our acne scar removal treatments:
Cross Peels: In the cross peel technique, a higher concentration of 80 to 100% TCA peel is applied to the scarred area with a specialized applicator.
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is used to improve the tone and texture of the skin. In this procedure, an abrasive surface is used with a special applicator to gently remove the thick outer layer of the skin.
Fillers Or Fat Grafting: Fillers or the fat grafting technique is used to fill the depression in the acne scar and rejuvenate the skin. In the case of fillers, either collagen fillers or hyaluronic acid fillers are used.
Scar Revision: Scar revision surgery involves the excision of the scar and the layered closing of the excision, which leads to the formation of a less visible scar.
Subcision: Subcision is a surgical technique where a small needle is inserted into the skin next to the acne scar, which releases the scar from the underlying tissue. This allows the skin to rise and leads the scar to become diminished.
Microneedling PRP: Microneedling PRP stimulates collagen production by applying platelets and rolling fine needles over the skin. This results in the acne scars becoming shallow and slowly diminishing.
