If you want to have clear skin please read this article. While acne itself is a frustrating condition, it can leave a footprint long after it’s gone in the form of acne scars. Acne occurs when skin pores become filled with oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pores become inflamed and eventually burst. If the pore wall bursts deeper in the skin, the infected debris leaks into the deep tissues, which creates larger lesions. Scarring occurs as the body creates collagen to repair the damage. Depending on skin type and other factors, the scarring can be relatively shallow and easy to correct. Where ruptures occur deep in the pore, scarring is more severe. The healing process creates significant changes in the texture and smoothness of the skin forming deep depressions or giving the skin a rolling wave-like appearance.
Types of acne scar
There are two categories of scarring; one type adds tissue, the other type forms around lost tissue. Hypertrophic scarring is the result of excessive collagen production during healing. Raised bumps or ridges around scars are the result of this over production of healing fiber. Atrophic scarring occurs as tissue is lost in healing. Common forms of atrophic scarring are ‘ice pick’ and ‘boxcar’ scars. Ice pick scarring creates tiny holes in the skin, while boxcar scars are larger with vertical sides comparable to chicken pox scars. Your acne scar treatment plan will be customized to address your unique skin landscape. Understand that the deeper more extensive scars will take several treatments and a healthy dose of patience while the skin heals. Superficial scarring will require patience as well. Treatments such as a chemical peel or a laser resurfacing both remove the damaged tissue, allowing the body to replace it with healthy smooth tissue.
Acne scar treatment options
Go Treat Group have a comprehensive array of treatments to cater to all skin types and colors. Your acne scar treatment begins with a thorough consultation so our practitioners can determine which treatments will best suit your needs. They may have you undergo a single treatment or a combination of treatments to provide the best result. The acne scar treatment plan recommended will be dependent on several factors, including the type of acne scars you have, whether they are primarily on the surface or extend into the deeper layers of the skin, as well as your skin color and overall skin tone.
Peeling and skin resurfacing
During a chemical peeling , a chemical solution is applied to the skin. The chemical causes the skin to blister and peel over several days. As the treated skin peels off, new skin replaces it. This chemical exfoliation reduces acne scarring, improves pigmentation and makes skin smoother. Of the peels, AHA peels are the most gentle; TCA peels are stronger; and phenol peels are the strongest. Chemical peels work best for people with superficial acne and acne scars.
Microdermabrasion is a very popular skin exfoliating treatment that helps to even out the skin’s complexion. Microdermabrasion acne scars treatment is better for reducing fine acne scars than other treatments such as chemical peeling. This is because it is non-invasive, painless and low-risk. Microdermabrasion works to eradicate only the superficial layers of the skin. Thus, it effectively treats sun damaged skin, age spots, fine lines and slight acne scarring. Acne scars on the face and other areas such as the chest, neck, back and hands can be reduced by this treatment. Microdermabrasion also makes it easy for skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen to make the skin look youthful.
Micro-Needling (also known as collagen-induction therapy and needling) is an acne scar treatment that works by repeatedly inserting tiny needles in the skin. These micro-injuries and subsequent healing increase circulation and build collagen and elastin. It is best done in a medical office, where the procedure and needles are sterile. Results start to show after about a month and continue for as long as a year after treatment. It is safe for all skin colors and works well to reduce widespread depressed acne scars.
Gel injection fills the indentations of even deep acne scars. Results are immediate. There is no downtime and they can be used on any skin color. Scars may be filled with collagen, the patient’s own fat, or hyaluronic acid. Many gels give temporary results that last between 6 and 18 months. Some gels are permanent. Be sure to ask your provider about the gel he/she recommends, as both temporary and permanent gels have unique pros and cons. Gels are best for treating a few depressed scars, even deep acne scars, but not icepick scars.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening (RF Thermage)
Skin tightening is a newer treatment and tends to be more affordable. This treatment is safe for all skin colors. Dermatologists often use a technology called radiofrequency to tighten the skin. As the skin tightens, depressed acne scars become less noticeable. Radiofrequency requires repeat appointments. Most patients return once a month for 4 months. After treatment, many patients feel a burning sensation for about 1 hour. Treated skin has a pinkish color for 2 to 3 days. Radiofrequency treatments are best for depressed acne scars. Sometimes skin tightening effectively treats deep icepick and boxcar scars.
Preventing acne scars
For patients who currently have acne, the best treatment for acne scars is preventing them before they occur. Below are two factors that make acne worse and may contribute to scarring once the acne is gone. Sun exposure. For both acne and acne scars, direct sunlight can prolong the condition and often make it worse. It is wise to avoid the sun during its peak hours, especially between 10am and 2pm. Sunscreen, hats and other forms of protection are recommended. Picking and squeezing. While it’s certainly tempting to pop that whitehead, it actually causes further disturbance to the skin. This results in inflammation and collagen loss, which prevents the skin from healing as it should. Additionally, popping a pimple causes the spread of bacteria deeper into the skin.
