ACNE SCAR TREATMENT
Active breakouts are frustrating enough, but the scars acne can leave behind can feel downright frustrating & depressing. The good news is that acne scars can be treated. However, before treatment can start you first have to get rid of any acne once and for all since new breakouts can lead to new acne scars.
TYPES OF ACNE SCAR
Before you try to treat your scars, it’s important to know what type they are. Each type responds to treatment differently, and some treatments are better for particular types than others.
These are wide, U-shaped scars that have sharp edges. They can be shallow or deep. The shallower they are, the better they respond to skin resurfacing treatments.
Ice pick Scars
Ice pick scars are narrow, V-shaped scars that can go deep into the skin. They can look like small round or oval holes, like a chickenpox scar. These are the most difficult scars to treat because they can extend far under the surface of the skin.
These are wide depressions that typically have rounded edges and an irregular, rolling appearance
CAUSES & TREATMENT
Causes: Scars are formed when a breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it.
Treatment: Collagen induction therapy by derma roller is used to treat skin depressions caused by acne. This acne scar treatment allows for laying down of newer collagen. This also makes the skin firmer and gives a healthy, youthful look. This is the first line of treatment and each person may require a different number of sessions depending on the severity of scars.
Microneedle-Radiofrequency is the latest technology in scar management. This technique offers a safe and efficacious technique for scar improvement. The severity of scars reduces with each session of therapy & eventually gives a smooth & clear look to your skin.
