Acne Scar Treatment in Hyderabad

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin disease caused by an outbreak of skin lesions, commonly referred to as pimples. Common in teenagers and adolescents, they sometimes scar the face for life. During adolescence, under the influence of developing sex hormones, oil glands (sebaceous glands) of the skin start producing more oil. Enlarged pores of oil glands appear on the skin. Acne forms when the pores get blocked. The blockage usually occurs because of excess keratinization and dead skin formation at the neck of the pore, which again is under the influence of hormones. External factors like clogging with certain makeup products also contribute to the blockage. This blockage of already hyperactive oil glands leads to acne. Ambrosia clinic in Hyderabad offers solution to treat your acne scars.

Types of Acne

Whiteheads

They are mild and initial stages of acne where there is just a slight blockage

Blackheads

When the blockage becomes severe it reaches the skin level, gets oxidised and turns black

Inflammatory papules

Pink coloured, often painful to touch, elevated lesion.

Pustules

These are pus filled acne

Nodulocystic acne

This is the most severe form of acne where there are pus-filled cavities that often join and form acne conglobata.

Acne commonly happens on the face, but back and arms can be affected in severe cases. Acne, if improperly treated or neglected, can lead to temporary or permanent scarring.

What triggers acne?

Many factors can lead to acne in women or men:

  • Hormonal change during puberty: During puberty, in both girls and boys, there is an increase in male sex hormones called androgens. As an effect of this increase, the glands enlarge and produce more sebum.
  • Hormonal change as adults: Menstrual cycle in women is one of the most common triggers of acne. Acne tends to appear a few days before the start of the cycle and disappears after a period. In some women, other hormonal changes, such as pregnancy and menopause, can improve acne. But some women have severe acne during this time. Sudden stopping the use of birth control pills also plays a role.
  • Medications: Some drugs such as those used for the treatment of epilepsy and depression can lead to acne.
  • Makeup: Many kinds of makeup can cause a flare in acne.
  • Pressure or rubbing on the skin: Friction such as those caused by a bike helmet or backpack can make acne worse.
  • Family history: If other people in your family have acne, there is a higher chance of getting it.
  • Dandruff: There is a correlation between dandruff and acne. For control of acne, dandruff control is essential.

Different Types of Acne Scars:

Acne scars are not all the same. They fall into two main categories: those caused by tissue loss (atrophic scars) and those caused by excess tissue (hypertrophic scars).

There are four main types of acne scars in this category:

Ice pick Scars:

The best way to describe ice pick scars are like little depressions on your skin; they look like someone pierced your skin with a small needle. Ice scars form when your skin loses collagen, causing the skin to collapse and leave a hole. They are usually narrow but deep and are often the result of cystic pimples, which are very deep, painful zits on jaw, chin, and cheeks, that you get from the hormonal imbalance.

Treatment offered at Ambrosia’s Hyderabad Clinic:

The popular way to treat this is through spot chemical peels that cause the skin to heal and close openings. However, chemical peel procedures should be carefully performed because they can make some scars worse. Ice pick scars may be difficult to treat, but you can manage them using the same laser and surface treatment methods.

Rolling Scars:

Imagine rolling meadows – that’s how your skin would look if you have rolling scars. If your skin has a rolling or wave-like scar, they tend to be shallow. If you need to stretch the skin surface, they are nearly invisible. 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.

Treatment offered at Ambrosia’s Hyderabad Clinic:

Laser, subcision and filler treatments are common ways to treat rolling scars.

Boxcar Scars:

Box scars are an unfortunate consequence of inflammatory acne (papules and red pustules, inflamed, irritated). They are usually flat but have sharper edges. The Boxcar scar almost looks like someone pushed a nail right into your skin.

Treatment offered at Ambrosia’s Hyderabad Clinic:

Subcision, Co2 laser and 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 form when the body tries to heal after acne, but your body inadvertently produces too much scarring.

Treatment offered at Ambrosia’s Hyderabad Clinic:

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 be removed surgically, but there is a high chance of regrowth.

Acne scar treatment tips

There are definite guidelines we espouse of your own safety, as one of the oldest and best acne scar treatment clinics in Hyderabad:

  • Always go to a qualified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Look for the right qualification – MBBS, MD Dermatology. MBBS DDVL ( diploma in dermatology) or MBBS, MS Mch ( plastic surgery). All those offering lasers and chemical peels are not necessarily qualified dermatologists.
  • Do not waste time and effort with self-treatment; it may only make things worse. There may be other underlying conditions causing the problem.
  • Acne scar treatments take months – so start early.
  • If there is still new acne coming up during treatment, we treat the new acne first. This treatment can last 2 months and only after that scar treatment can begin.
  • Pigmented spots can be treated simultaneously with active acne. They are treated with peels and creams.
  • Acne scar treatment with microneedle MNRF requires up to 6 sittings at 6 week intervals.
  • C02 laser requires a lot more post-procedure care as compared to Microneedle RF. Dark-skinned people need to be wary of side effects of hyperpigmentation.
  • Filler/PRP or fat and stem cell injections are done in selected cases to improve the look of scars.
  • Treatments are always individualised. Not all scars are suitable for all these treatments
  • Acne scar treatments improve the look of scars, but skin never becomes scarless or virgin skin so prevent the scars.

Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Even as we offer the best acne scar treatment in Hyderabad, our promise of ethical treatment holds us to the belief that prevention is the best way to go about dealing with acne:

  • Please take pimples seriously. If your acne is leaving scars, take the best possible treatment to cure acne. It’s much easier and cheaper to treat acne and prevent scars than neglecting first and then trying to treat scars. Even if you take the best treatment, once scarring happens you can never make your skin perfectly smooth again.
  • Acne scars are less common when you have fewer breakouts. Avoid popping, picking, and squeezing to prevent skin irritation and damage to the underlying tissue that can cause scarring.
  • Acne scars can cause emotional stress. However, quick treatment can help prevent scars. 

We strongly stand by the practice that a dermatologist will have treatment options for treating scars. An examination by a dermatologist is the only way to get a complete and accurate diagnosis. In some cases, doctor care may be the only way to eliminate and control your acne scars completely.

FAQ

How can I prevent acne scars?
Prevention of acne and pimples is better and easier than treating the scars. You can consult a dermatologist at Ambrosia for scar removal treatment in hyderabad. Acne is not something that can be cured completely as long as the hormones causing them are active. Control is the best possible solution . All patients do not respond identically to the same medicines. Therefore regular follow up with the dermatologist, and self-care as advised is crucial.
Can I use anti-scar creams available in the market to treat/ remove my acne scars?
We strongly recommend against this practice. Acne scars are of different types and maybe caused by underlying conditions you are unaware of. Generic off-the-shelf creams will not go to the root of the problem and instead could well aggravate the situation because of delay in treatment. Always consult a dermatologist/plastic surgeon.
How long does acne scar treatment take?
Acne scar treatment takes multiple sittings and depending on the severity of scars, can take several months for the best results.
Is there any permanent acne treatment available?

The best treatment for acne is oral capsules of Isotretinoin. When taken as advised, they can cure the most severe acne. Your dermatologist will recommend Isotretinoin capsules depending on the severity of your problem, when creams and other topical treatments fail and acne starts to leave scars. These tablets are used strictly under dermatologist’s supervision to avoid any side effects.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

  • Microneedling/Dermaroller
  • Juvederm® XC
  • Viora Reaction RF Skin Tightening
  • Subcision
Will my skin become completely normal after treatment for acne/ scars?
Even one session of any treatment shows some improvement, but depending on the severity of acne scars, it takes multiple sessions. We combine more than one type of treatment and attempt to reach the best improvement in 6 months -1 year.
How much does acne scar removal treatment cost in Hyderabad?

The cost of the treatment depends upon the severity and depth of the acne scars. It therefore varies from person to person. The price may also depend upon the type of treatment chosen by the patient, after a detailed consultation. Ambrosia offers the best and most cost effective acne scar treatment in Hyderabad.
