How Acne scars form?
Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin disease caused by an outbreak of skin lesions, commonly referred to as pimples. Acne usually appears on the neck, back, face, shoulders, and chest. It is the most common skin problem of teenagers.
Acne happens when oil glands of the skin create too much sebum, an oily substance that leads to clogged pores. It can also form due to the rapid production of P. acnes bacteria.
Skin pores get clogged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. When pressure increases inside acne due to overfilling of pus, a breakthrough happens in the wall. Pus enters the surrounding skin tissue and causes deeper lesions. The skin tries to repair this lesion by forming a scar.
Different Types of Acne Scars:
The best way to describe icepick is like a little depression on your skin; they almost look like someone took a small needle and pierce your skin. The popular way to treat this is through Dot chemical peels that cause the skin to heal and close openings. However, chemical peel procedures should carefully performed because they can make some scars worse. Icepick scars may be difficult to treat, but you can manage them using the same laser and surface treatment methods.
Imagine rolling meadows – that’s how your skin would look if you have rolling scars. If your skin is rolling or wave-like a scar, you may have rolling acne scars. They tend to be shallow. So if you need to stretch the skin surface, it might be challenging to say that they are there.
They are almost always the result of deep inflammatory acne cysts filled with pus, which were not treated in time. Since acne goes deep into the fat layer under the skin, there is often hollowness of cheeks along with scarring. Unfortunately, this type of scar can become more apparent and worse with age because your skin loses its natural firmness and elasticity.
Laser, subcision and filler treatments are common ways to treat rolling scars.
With inflammatory acne (papules and red pustules, inflamed, irritated), boxcar scars are an unfortunate general consequence. They are usually flat but have sharper edges. The Boxcar scar almost looks like someone pushed a nail right into your skin.
Microneedle RF treats this type of scar.
Keloid Acne Scars :
Keloid scars are different from all other scars. In others, there is a depression or hole in the skin, but keloid scars are excessively pink elevated scars. These forms when the body tries to heal after acne, but your body inadvertently produces too much scar.
To treat them, the first way to attack keloids is usually a cortisone injection, but this is not a guaranteed way to make it smaller. Topical and retinol laser treatments can also be applied to keloids after they get flattened. Keloids can remove surgically, but there is a high chance of regrowth.
Pigmented Acne Spots:
Pigmented acne spots can be as undesirable as acne scars. Pigmented spots happen those with darker skin types -so very common in our area. In such skin types, the smallest pimple can leave jet black spot which can stay for months if untreated. Often these spots are found in association with other types of scars, and treatment of spots is different from that of scars.
