Acne scars are emotionally and psychologically challenging the affecting quality of life and self-esteem. Let us understand acne scars better before knowing treatment options.
Acne arises from a sebaceous gland (oil gland) present in the dermis of skin (2nd layer). Any inflammation in this layer can lead to scarring as this is the permanent layer of skin compared to the outer layer. So, when acne appears there is a lot of inflammation with infection and pus formation. In uncontrolled acne, these become bigger with a cluster of acne leading to scarring. Body tend to heal this acne with fibrosis and permanent band formation which will keep anchoring skin to deeper structures.
There are four types of scars generally described
Rolling scars: respond best to treatment
Ice pick scars: respond poorly to treatment
Box scars: respond moderately to treatment
Hypertrophic or keloidal - resistant to treatment. These scars can't be treated by applying any creams over the skin as the problem is fibrous bands beneath the skin, so treatment should also be beneath the skin.
Best treatment options for acne scars.
In my experience acne scars respond best to following treatments.
Mnrf (microneedle radiofrequency)-in this treatment radiofrequency is used through gold plated sterile needles. This works on the principle of micro needling with heat energy which breaks fibrous bands by coagulation of proteins leading to collagen remodeling. Need 4-8 sitting at a gap of 4-6 weeks for optimal results.
Lasers- erbium glass and co2 laser are proven lasers for acne scar treatment. They work on the principle of thermal energy and collagen remodeling. They also need 4-8 sessions for good results.
Dermaroller in this treatment a one time use sterile derma roller is used. The roller is rolled over the concerned area multiple times in a specified manner causing micro-injury and collagen remodeling.
Subcision it is done with a needle where a sterile needle is passed at the scar level to cut the fibrous bands and release the pull.
Other treatment options- prp, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, dermabrasion and dermal fillers.
All these treatments are done by applying local anesthetic cream 45 mins before treatment.
All these treatments have down time of 3-7 days as there can be redness and swelling.
