What are the types of Acne Scars?

In simple terms, scarring falls into two categories; pigmented or textured.

types of acne scars over face

  1. Pigmented scars

Pigmented scars only affect the upper layers of the skin.

e.g. d​ark spots, red spots, or flat hyperpigmentation that is left behind after acne heals

  1. Textured scars

Can be several skin layers deep and make the surface of the skin feel and look bumpy.

e.g. ice pick scars, box scars, rolling scars, hypertrophic scars.

What types of scars can be removed with Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels remove the topmost layer of skin cells from the skin surface, which is why peels are an ideal solution for treating pigmented scars and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Chemical peels can also be extremely useful in managing or controlling acne, as well as shrinking the size of enlarged pores.

What is CROSS?

The Chemical Reconstruction of Skin Scars or CROSS procedure involves depositing small amounts of a chemical at high concentration (70–100%) onto the surface of the atrophic scar. This causes a local inflammatory reaction leading to the formation of new collagen fibres thereby reducing depth of scars.

Multiple sessions needed depending on severity of acne scars at a interval of 2-4 weeks.

✔️ Its topical non surgical procedure, so no systemic side-effects.

✔️ No rest needed, however strict sun protection is must.

How microneedling can help in acne scars?

Micro-needling involves pricking the skin with multiple tiny sterilized needles.

  • P-R-P is injected into acne scars or applied over skin when used with microneedling.
  • Multiple sessions needed depending on severity of acne scars at a interval of 1 month.
  1. GFC in Acne Scars

Well, The result may vary from person to person.

It also depends on types of scar, site of scar, size of scar and healing power of skin. 

Generally 30-70% results can be expected after multiple sessions. Complete clearance is not possible.

For better result, your dermatologist will suggest you to combine different treatment modalities to give better result. So always ask all about treatment results prior to staring any therapy. 

Some of the common precautions for all post-acne scar treatments are

  • Stop all the topical medications
  • Avoid sun exposure, heat and excessive water
  • Don’t allow your skin to be dry , frequent moisturiser should be applied.
  • Don’t touch skin, don’t peel manually
No, most of the acne scars may not fade away naturally and require procedural treatments performed by dermatologist.
All grades of acne may cause some form of permanent scars if active acne not treated properly on time.
Selection of treatment modality is dependent on type and severity of acne scarring. 

Cost of each treatment modality is different. So cost per session depends on number of modalities chosen. 

So, exact cost can be determined after examining the patient only.
