About Acne Scars

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.

Do Acne Holes Or Acne Scars Go Away?

Acne scars may be very common among people who have suffered severe acne, but they can cause psychological distress. They can affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence, and affect their lifestyle and relationships. Fortunately, by consulting a doctor and choosing the treatment suitable for you, it is possible to reduce and even eliminate acne scars.

Can Acne Scars Be Removed Naturally?

Acne scars are very common and people all over the world search Google for "treatment for acne scars" or "home treatment for acne scars." There are lots of natural remedies or home treatments online for removing acne scars and getting clear skin, but you might not notice any difference after trying them. Unfortunately, most home treatments for acne scars found online either don't work or show very minimal results.  At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, we use RecoSMA laser technology to treat acne scarring, with a success rate of more than 75%.

There are many misconceptions about laser acne scar treatment. Many people believe that the treatment is painful, harmful, and ineffective. However, the opposite is true. RecoSMA laser treatment for acne scars is a safe, painless, and effective option that gets rid of scars permanently. At Arra Aesthetic, Pune, we also use chemical peels, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, and other treatments for more noticeable results.

WHAT ARE THE Types Of Acne Scars?

Atrophic Scars:

The most common type of acne scars are 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:

Hypertrophic scars and keloid scars are scarred tissue that is formed as a result of excessive collagen formation after there is 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. Hypertrophic scars and keloid scars can be painful and difficult to conceal with makeup if not treated properly.

How Do We Treat Acne Scars At Arra Aesthetics, Pune?


Before it was not possible to remove acne scars by replacing the fibrous tissue or scar tissue with fully functional tissue. The formation of fibrous tissue or scar 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.

Most people doubt that particularly deep acne scars can be removed by laser treatment. 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 of damaged skin. It stimulates the skin to actively produce collagen and elastin.

Collagen and elastin are two proteins that the body makes naturally. They are essential for the structure and function of the skin. Collagen provides the skin with strength and elasticity, while elastin helps the skin to snap back into place after being stretched or pulled. Since the RecoSMA laser stimulates elastin and collagen production, the scars will become less noticeable after just one session! The scars become less and less noticeable and generally disappear completely after 3 sessions.

RecoSMA Laser can effectively be used for the treatment of post-acne scars, whether they are atrophic scars, hypertrophic scars, or keloid scars.

At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, 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.

The RecoSMA Laser is also used to treat active acne.

What makes RecoSMA different from other laser acne scar treatments?

The RecoSMA laser can be used on the face, eyelids, neck, and anywhere on the entire body. The technology is classified as a non-thermal aesthetic laser: it does not create deep tissue burns, allowing the laser to be utilized on the entire body.

It is the only non-invasive laser that does not require local anesthesia, requires no cooling system or special aftercare, and has a shorter recovery time.

The revolutionary effect of the RecoSMA laser is not just used to reduce acne and acne scars. It is also used for the treatment of stretch marks, non-healing wounds, and severe keloid and hypertrophic scars.

Non-Laser Treatments

At Arra Aesthetics, Pune, 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. The peel penetrates deeper layers of the skin, providing exfoliation and improvement in the skin texture.  
  • 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 dead cells or thick outer layer of the skin.
  • Fillers Or Fat Grafting: Fillers or the fat grafting technique is used to fill the depressed 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 depressed 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is acne scar removal the same as laser skin treatment?

No, laser acne scar removal is not the same as a laser skin treatment. Laser skin treatment can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and pigmentation, but it cannot remove acne scars. However, the RecoSMA laser works by stimulating elastin and collagen production, which not only helps to remove acne scars but also gives smoother skin.

Is laser treatment worth it for acne and scars?

Laser treatment for acne scars is worth it. The RecoSMA laser used at Arra Aesthetics, Pune, not only gives permanent results but also narrows the pores to reduce the chances of acne occurring in the future.

Can laser treatment remove old acne scars?

Yes, laser treatment can remove old acne scars. The older the scar, the more difficult it is to treat, but it is still possible with the revolutionary RecoSMA laser.

Can laser treatment remove acne scars completely?

Laser acne treatment can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars, but the results can depend on a lot of different factors. The treatment cannot make a scar disappear completely, but it can make it much less visible.

No, generally speaking, Dr. Vasant Gholave only recommends RecoSMA laser treatment for acne scars after all active acne has cleared up.
