Acne Scars form at the site of an injury. These are the visible reminders of injury and tissue repair. In the case of acne, the injury is caused by the body’s inflammatory response to sebum, bacteria and dead cells in the plugged sebaceous follicle. Two types of actual scars exist:
- Depressed areas such as ice-pick scars, and
- Raised thickened tissue, such as Keloids.
Acne Scar Removal Treatments
Acne scar removal treatment works towards the same goal of removing the external layers of the scar tissue cells. Leaving the scar either heavily faded or completely removed.
Skin Peel and Chemical peel use materials designed to force the body to shed the surface cells.
Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to remove the cells as well as unclogging pores physically, and this treatment is particularly good for treating active acne as well as acne scars.
Microneedling involves multiple tiny needles puncturing the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, promoting renewed skin cells.
Laser Resurfacing Treatment can also remove the surface skin cells and don’t cause damage to surrounding healthy skin cells. It includes CO2RE, which can target both superficial and deeper layers of your skin and Fraxel. It penetrates deep into the skin.
