Acne Scar Reduction

The skin is one of the largest organs and the most exposed. It has millions of open pores that help to control body temperature, keep the pH balance of the skin, and keep the level of water in the skin. When sebum, dust, dirt, pollutants, and dead skin cells block the pores of the skin, acne (also called pimples) and flesh-colored bumps form. Acne can also happen when hormones are out of balance or when the sebaceous glands deep in the skin make too much oil (called sebum).

When acne starts to get better, it often leaves scars behind. Even though acne scars aren’t linked to any major health problems, they can make a person feel bad about themselves because of their appearance. Acne scars get worse over time and start to look like a skin structure with dents. Acne scars make the skin rough and uneven and cause damage that can’t be fixed on its own. So, a consistent dermatological method used by people who know about skin can help scars a lot. There are different ways to make the skin look and feel better.


Acne Scar Treatment in Hyderabad

Here are some factors that can cause scars:

  • Scars can form when there is inflammation, like when acne is red, swollen, and painful.
  • Inflammatory acne is left untreated.
  • Scars may be left behind when acne is picked, popped, or squeezed.
  • Scars can be passed down from parent to child.
  • Medical history of chickenpox or other contagious diseases.

Types of Acne Scars

Acne scars can be put into different groups based on their size, shape, and how bad they are. Treatments also vary based on what kind of scar it is and how it looks.

1. Atrophic scars: These scars happen when the body loses tissue and can’t replace it because it doesn’t make enough collagen. This is how atrophic scars form. Atrophic scars come in three main forms:

Ice pick scars are caused by an infection caused by a cyst or other type of inflammation on the skin’s surface. These scars leave a hole in the skin that is thin, small, narrow, and deep.
Boxcar scars are wider and look like they have sharp, clear edges. Scars like these were caused by acne, shingles, or chickenpox. These scars look like blisters on an itchy rash. Most of the time, these scars are on thicker parts of the skin, like the lower jaw and cheeks.
Rolling scars are deep and have edges that slope away from the skin. They look like waves and aren’t even.

2. Hypertrophic scar: When wounds or injuries heal, they leave behind scar tissue, which is red and stands out. So, hypertrophic scars are scars that are thick and raised because the skin makes too much collagen. After a few months, these scars may get lighter and flatter. Inflammation or an injury, like burns, acne, or insect bites, is the main cause of hypertrophic scars.

3. Keloid scars: When hypertrophic scars form on their own, they look like a smooth, firm, and hard growth on the skin. This is how keloid scars are made. These scars can be itchy or painful, and they get bigger over time. They can happen anywhere on the body, but most often on the shoulders and upper chest. People with dark skin are more likely to get keloid scars than people with lighter skin. Even though hypertrophic or keloid scars don’t hurt your health in general.

Treatment Options

Several methods can help get rid of different kinds of pigmentation.  These are the choices:

1. Chemical Peel

Chemical peels can help with many skin problems, such as acne, acne scars, pigmentation, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and fine lines. Chemical peels with glycolic or salicylic acid are most often used to treat acne scars. These peels are put on the affected area of skin. This solution gets rid of the top layer of skin by exfoliating it. Since the chemical peel also gets rid of pigmented cells, it is good for both the tone and texture of the skin.

2. Dermabrasion

It is a skin resurfacing method that is useful to treat facial scarring. This improves the appearance of acne scars, chicken pox scars, and also removes the scars that are formed due to an injury or disease. This works by using a power-driven hand tool that consists of an abrasive end part. This device rotates around the surface of the scar and removes the topmost layer of the skin, boosts collagen production, and promotes new skin cell formation.

3. Microdermabrasion

It is a way to resurface the skin that is less dangerous and takes less time to heal than other ways. It is the same as dermabrasion, but small crystals are used to remove the top layers of skin. This technique makes scars and fine lines on the skin's surface get better. This method doesn't hurt, and you don't need to be put to sleep for it. This is the best way to treat a boxcar scar. For this method to work best, you need to do it more than once.

4. Dermal fillers

They are made of natural materials like hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite. When this solution is injected into the affected area of skin, it makes scars look better quickly and in a natural way. The fillers help the body make more collagen and fill in deep acne scars to make the skin feel smoother. This is a quick and short-term way to treat scars that works well.

5. Laser Resurfacing

Laser technique is a safe and effective way to reduce the look of acne scars and blemishes. It works by removing the top layer of damaged skin and heating the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Lasers also make the skin more flexible and make it look younger. Lasers break up the excess melanin cells that cause acne scars and cause pigmentation to fade. They also help new skin cells grow.

There are two kinds of laser therapy.

Both ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers mostly work on the top layer of skin (by getting rid of dead skin cells and making new ones) and the deeper layers of skin (remove pigmentation and boost collagen production). Non-ablative lasers only work on the deeper layers of skin to get rid of spots and make more collagen. Laser therapy is best for getting rid of the look of acne scars, wrinkles, and spots on the face. It makes your skin look brighter, healthier, and more even in tone and texture.

6. Micro needling

For this method, a tool with 100 to 1000 tiny needles on its surface is used. When these tiny needles are rolled over the surface of the skin, a controlled injury is made, which speeds up the healing process and makes more collagen.

What to Do After Treatment?

  • Use an ice pack to lessen pain or other discomfort.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and apply sunscreen religiously.
  • Use only gentle lotions and moisturisers (prescribed by the doctor).
  • Do not scratch or rub the area.
  • After the treatment, you shouldn’t put on makeup or cosmetics for a few days.
