Acne Scar Treatment :

Acne scars are formed when a breakout penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it.

Acne scars are stubborn, and no single treatment is best for everyone. One or a combination of the following approaches might improve the appearance of your skin, depending on your scar type, your skin type and the severity of the scarring. Before you try to treat your scars, it’s important to know what type they are. Each type responds to treatment differently.

Laser resurfacing - This approach is increasingly popular and is often used on scars that were once treated with dermabrasion.

Soft tissue fillers - Injecting collagen, fat or other substances under the skin can plump the skin over indented scars. The goal is to make the scars less noticeable. Results are temporary, so repeat treatments are needed to retain the effect. 


Chemical peel - Your doctor applies a chemical solution to the scar tissue to remove the top layer of skin and minimize the appearance of deeper scars.

Dermabrasion -This procedure is usually reserved for more severe scarring. Your doctor removes the top layer of skin with a rapidly rotating brush or other device. 

Skin needling / Microneedling - Your doctor rolls a needle-studded device over the skin to stimulate collagen formation in the underlying tissue. It's a safe, simple and possibly effective technique for acne scarring.

PRP –PRP therapy, along with micro-needling has excellent results when it comes for treatment of acne scar. The treatment initially causes break-down of scarred skin area and the old accumulation of collagen that previously formed the scar and followed by the production of new collagen and elastin. This new collagen gives the skin a much smoother and healthier appearance reducing the appearance of acne scarring or making them invisible.

Surgery - Using a minor procedure called punch excision, your doctor cuts out individual acne scars and repairs the wound with stitches or a skin graft. With a technique called subcision, your doctor inserts needles under the skin to loosen fibres below a scar.
