Acne Scar Treatment

Acne Scar Treatment

Even with the most careful and conscientious treatment, acne scars may still occur.

Different types Of Acne Scars

Puckered Scars: The skin appears to have been pierced by a needle.

Rolling Scars: This type causes rolling or “wave-like” undulations across otherwise normal-appearing skin.

Boxcar scars: They are round or oval depressions wider than ice-pick scars. They develop as a result of tissue loss from a severe breakout. They give the skin a pitted appearance.

Hypertrophic scars (click to read more about hypertrophic scars): They appear as firm, raised scars and are usually larger than the original acne in size.

Treatments at Skin & You Clinic for Acne Scars

Alma Photo Facial: is a breakthrough painless technology that stimulates collagen and decreases unwanted pigmentation thus working on acne scars and red and brown marks left by acne. The post acne pigmentation is cleared and the scars appear smooth and resurfaced.

RF pixel (Laser Resurfacing): Laser resurfacing with a pixel is a method of treating acne scarring. The laser causes controlled injury to the skin. During the procedure, just a small portion of the tissue is resurfaced at a time. The remaining tissue supplies the healing that leads to the elimination of irregular superficial pigmentation, filling of the scar and the smoothing of the skin .This is achieved as the laser helps in collagen regeneration and ultimately causes scar filling.
