Acne Scar Reduction

Acne occurs when the glands in the skin generate excess oil, as a result of which the pores get clogged with it. The natural skin oils build up and create a favorable environment for the bacteria which grow inside the clogged pore. Mostly, the small pores develop into small bumps on the skin known as whiteheads. Larger pores usually develop into flat marks with a black dot in the center and are called blackheads. If the clogging is near the surface of the skin, it heals pretty well on its own. Although, when the clog is deep down, it can be destructive and take longer to heal. This clog may result in the bursting of the pore’s wall, and the secretions can destroy the skin tissue in the area around it. These deeper clogs destroy more skin tissues and are likely to become scars. When the clog clears, it becomes the body’s first priority to repair the damage like it would with any injury. The body produces new skin tissues to replace the destroyed ones. It may not be as perfect as the original skin. At times, the body produces excessive skin, which creates a raised scar. Sometimes the body produces too little skin, which creates small depression in the skin. These imperfect reconstructions of the destroyed tissue are known as acne scars.

The ideal way to prevent acne scars is by not disturbing the acne pimples. Popping the pimples worsens the damage and increases the chance of scarring. Medical treatments (topical applications) for acne can help prevent scarring. Treated clogged pores reduce the opportunities for scarring.

Best Acne Scar Treatment

Microdermabrasion:

This treatment works by applying tiny rough particles on the skin through a special device. This treatment causes the removal of the outer layer of the skin. It gives smooth skin with fewer scars, as the treatment reveals smoother and toned skin. The treatment works best for treating a depressed acne scar, and the treatment removes dead skin cells. These skin procedures can improve scar appearance, but no single is best for everyone. A dermatologist often provides customization of various treatments so that one can get the best results.

Dermaroller:

This treatment creates many tiny holes in the skin that penetrates the epidermis to the papillary dermis. The skin produces new collagen as it heals, which can help in smoothing out the scars due to acne. This acne scar treatment is performed in Dermapoint by experts, and in the first step, a topical anesthetic is applied and may take half to an hour to numb the area. This helps to manage discomfort. When the treatment completes, the skin may be red and resembling like sunburn. Ointments are applied to the skin to treat the damage. It is then coated with a different type of ointment to help seal the skin, keep it moisturized. The treatment breaks the acne scar and boosts the formation of new skin and collagen.

Laser:

Lasers assist in removing the dead skin cells, and they break the scar tissues as well. Blood flow is drawn to the targeted area due to the heat of the laser, and the inflammation reduces as blood vessels in the scar are targeted. After the treatment, some ointments have to be applied to keep the skin moist, keep the area clean, and encourage healing.

Dermal filler:

This is a non-invasive procedure that uses injections consisting of soft gel. These injections are effective in adding volume to the facial tissue. This procedure covers different areas of the face, such as cheeks, mouth, and jaw lines. Fillers effectively improve the appearance of atrophic scar as it plumps and lifts the area to provide a smooth skin finish. This procedure improves the texture and tone of the skin and provides a natural-looking skin.

Patients suffering from acne scars can also benefit from carbon laser peel, chemical peel treatment, laser toning, and various other treatments offered at Dermapoint that help remove acne scars effectively. All these treatments promote new, healthy skin cells to replace and scar tissue simultaneously.
