Acne breakouts are a frustrating condition, but the injuries and hideous marks left behind by acne are far more frustrating. These are commonly known as acne scars. Some people perceive acne and pimple marks as an unwanted reminder of a severe and troublesome condition. These marks if left unattended can lead to permanent scars. These not only steal one's beauty but also decrease one's confidence.

It is always better to consult a skin doctor and know all about the best scar reduction treatment in Gurgaon before making a firm choice.

Types of Acne Scars

Acne scars are developed when a breakout punctures the skin intensely and destroys the skin tissues underneath it. There are mainly two types of scars Atrophic and Hypertrophic.

1. Atrophic or depressed scars

Atrophic scars are commonly found on the face. These types of scars sit below the enclosing skin of the target area. These are formed when sufficient collagen is not produced by the body in the wound healing process. There are 3 types of atrophic scars:

1.1 Boxcar Scars

Boxcar are wide and U-shaped scars and generally have sharp edges. They can take a shallow or deep appearance. Most skin specialists suggest that the shallower they are the better they respond to the skin resurfacing treatments.

1.2 Ice pick Scars

These are narrow and V-shaped scars that can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin. They appear as small, round or oval injuries, and resemble a chickenpox scar. Ice pick scars are the most difficult scars to manage as they can penetrate far under the surface of the skin.

1.3 Rolling Scars

Rolling scars are wide cavities that typically have rounded edges. They usually have an irregular and rolling appearance. Thus, the name given to these scars is appropriate.

2. Hypertrophic Scars

These scars are often called raised scars and most commonly appear on the chest and back. They rise above the surface of the enclosing skin and are provoked by too much collagen during healing.

Besides these scars acne often leaves behind brown or black marks on the skin.

Acne Scar Treatments at Aster Dermatology

1. Microdermabrasion

Acne scars respond excellently with microdermabrasion. It is one of the most effective and common treatments for acne scars. Since this method only targets the epidermis, it treats scars that are on the upper layer of the skin. It is most effective for scars that are on the uppermost layer.

2. Chemical peels

Chemical peels are one of the most effective procedures. The best thing about chemical peeling is that they are non-invasive and have no downtime associated with it. The procedure is performed in a clinical setting and involves the application of a strong chemical on the targeted area. It is used to exfoliate the topmost layer of the skin to reduce deeper scars. It is very efficient for deeper scars.

3. Laser resurfacing

Laser-induced resurfacing skin treatments are typically recommended for faster healing and visible results. It removes the uppermost layer of the skin just like in a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It is most effective for people without active breakouts and who have lighter skin tone.

4. Dermal Fillers

The most popular treatment for acne scar reduction is the dermal filler. These fillers are designed to boost the collagen production and growth factors that repair the skin and its depressions. It is a completely non-invasive treatment and has no associated downtime. It is a zippy procedure and the results are instantaneous.

5. Microneedling

Microneedling is considered best for depressed scars. It is the most innovative and newest method in the reduction of acne scars. The procedure is performed using a small, handheld device that is studded with needles that are designed to puncture the skin and promote healing by regeneration of collagen. Microneedling assists in the reduction of acne scars. The best feature of this treatment is that it works effectively for all skin tones and colors.
