Acne scars have no medical concerns associated with them. However, they can cause severe stress to the patient. The scars distort the appearance of an individual and may lead to low self-esteem and negative self-image. Various over the counter gels and creams are available for treatment of scars. However, most of them take a long time to deliver results and the effects are subtle. A dermatologist should always be consulted before using any such product to take into account the side-effects resulting from prolonged use of such substances. Several home remedies and alternative medication are a popular choice for treatment of mild scars.
Other treatments include the use of soft tissue fillers that inject collagen or fat under the skin of the affected area. This reduces the appearance of scars but the effects are not long-lasting and the procedure may have to be repeated. Pulsed light sources and radiofrequency devices are also used in the treatment of mild to moderate scars. Botox treatment recommended in certain cases can help in reducing the indentations caused by scars by temporarily relaxing the muscles of the affected area. However, the procedure may have to be repeated every 6-8 months.
Laser resurfacing, Dermabrasion, Needling or rolling and Chemical peeling are some of the minimally invasive procedures reserved for severe scars. Proper consultation with a trained dermatologist is advisable before embarking on any such treatment. Due to the multiplicity of treatments and procedures, it serves well to discuss the long-term effects and advantages of any procedure.
