Acne Scars Treatments at YouthVille Clinic Andheri West, Mumbai

A Guide to Acne Scarring

Acne scars are often the unfortunate aftermath of inflammatory acne lesions. The exact mechanisms leading to acne scarring are not entirely understood, but several theories exist. Acne scars can cause significant physical and psychological distress, particularly among adolescents.


Causes of Acne Scars

Acne scars occur due to fibrosis of the skin tissue during the healing process. The body initially produces skin that looks and functions differently but gradually replaces it with skin that better matches the rest of the body. Several factors like size, type, and depth of the scar, as well as age and genetics, affect the fading of scars.

What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that happens when hair follicles under the skin become clogged. Oil and dead skin cells plug the pores, and outbreaks of lesions (often called pimples or zits) can happen. Most often, the outbreaks occur on the face but can also appear on the back, chest, and shoulders. For most people, acne tends to go away by the time they reach their thirties, but some people in their forties and fifties continue to have this skin problem.

Types of Acne Scars

Acne scars can be broadly categorized into Atrophic and Hypertrophic scars.

  • Hypertrophic Scars: Pink, raised, and firm. More common in darker-skinned individuals and predominantly occur on the trunk.

  • Atrophic Scars: More common and come in various subtypes:​

    • Rolling: Caused by tethering of the dermis to subcutaneous tissue, giving the skin a rolling appearance.

    • Boxcar: Round or oval scars with well-defined vertical edges, resembling a 'U' shape.

    • Icepick: Narrow, deep, V-shaped scars.

Treatment Options

There are no one-size-fits-all guidelines for treating acne scars, but multiple options exist:

For Atrophic Scars:

  1. Chemical Peels: To remove the top layer of the skin.

  2. Microdermabrasion: For very minor scars.

  3. Laser Treatment: Effective for deeper scars.

  4. Punch Excision: For isolated scars.

  5. Needling: Stimulates collagen production.

  6. MNRF (Microneedling with Radio Frequency): For skin resurfacing.

  7. Fat Grafting: To fill in depressed scars.

  8. HA Filler: Hyaluronic Acid fillers for volume.

For Hypertrophic Scars:

  1. Intralesional Steroids (ILS): To reduce inflammation and size.

  2. Cryotherapy: Freezing therapy to improve appearance.

Laser Skin Resurfacing for Acne Scars

This technique eliminates layers of skin one by one with precision, regenerating fresh collagen and refilling depressed scars. It also helps lighten scars by eliminating pigment. Learn more
