However, when it comes to treating acne scarring, “patience” is more important.

Treatment for mild and moderate Acne scars

Dermatological procedures: such as Chemical peeling, microdermabrasion, micro-needle therapy, PRP and Derma fillers.

Surgical Procedures: Subsicion, dermabrasions, scar revision, punch elevation and excision, punch grafting, dermal grafts and autologous fat transfer

Laser treatments or energy based devices: Fractional lasers such Fractional Co2, Erbium yag laser, erbium glass laser, Fractional sublative RF, Fractional MNRF(SCARLET&ENDYMED PRO), PICO LASER AND Enerjet.

Usually, these procedures are done at monthly intervals for at least 4-5 times, they stimulate collagen production in the deeper part of the skin making scars less visible

Non Surgical Dermatological procedures

Chemical Peeling:

This Alpha Beta Hydroxy Skin Rejuvenating Solutions are quite effective in lightening and treating acne scars and soften scar tissue. This is the most common acne marks removal process involving natural organic like glycolic, lactic, or citric peeling agents are used to eliminate the upper layer (dead layer) of the skin and induce new skin formation that is visibly lighter and smoother.

Microdermabrasion:

Microdermabrasion is a most common acne scar removal treatment in which the skin is treated with the help of a special device that remove the dead layer of skin and promotes tissue regeneration. This procedure is used to treat mild acne scars, fine lines and skin discoloration.

Fillers:

Fillers are a temporary way to fill a depressed scar using fillers such as Restylane/Perlane.

Micro-needle Therapy:

Derma roller is a revolutionary device which has the amazing ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP is the newer and advance treatment which shows better results when combined with acne laser treatment. Though it commonly used for skin rejuvenation treatment of delicate areas like skin under eye. During this process the patient’s own blood is processed and is introduced back into the skin to stimulate the process of regeneration of skin cells and collagen.

TCA Cross

It is defined as chemical reconstruction of skin scars (CROSS) using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This being the most common and cheapest scar removal treatments processes used to treat pitted or ice-pick acne scars. 

Surgical Procedures or treatments

Subcision:

It is usually performed to treat deep rolling scars and an experienced dermatologist is more important to perform this procedure. During this facial scar treatment process, the skin tissue is separated from the deeper scar tissue.  After this procedure, acne scars lifts up by 80% and we can see the results immediately.

Punch Elevation/Excision:

It is usually performed using a punch biopsy tool and considered to be better alternative than laser treatment for acne scars like boxcar scars or ice-pick scars. We can see results in 2 to 3 months. Wide acne scars can also be fixed through punch elevation procedure.

Acne Scar Treatment using Laser Therapy:

Nowadays, laser scar removal is one of the most popular and most demanded scar removing techniques, the reason being non-surgical, non-invasive technique, most effective results without any discomfort and downtime of surgery.

Acne Scar Laser Treatment uses high-energy beams to break hard scar tissues and remove the damaged and older skin tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen without harming the surrounding skin tissues and leaving behind less visible scars, most attractive and smoother skin.

Different laser technologies are used to treat different acne scars. For example,

(1) Fractional Co2 laser (2) Fractional Erbium YAG Laser (3) Fractional Erbium Glass Laser  ( 4) MNRF (Microneedling Radiofrequency) (5) Fractional RF Skin Resurfacing (5) Pico laser (6) Enerjet (7) Pulse Dye Laser

Fractional laser or energy based skin resurfacing devices

Fractional laser or energy based skin resurfacing devices treats microscopic columns of skin. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses a device to deliver a laser beam that targets a fraction of the skin at a time.

These are called micro-thermal treatment zones (MTZs). Within each MTZ old epidermal pigmented cells are expelled and the neo-collagenosis happens in the dermis which evens out the depressions in the skin.

Fractional laser resurfacing technologies which are the most commonly used are:

Fractional Co2 laser:

Fractional Co2 laser: produces a specific wavelength of light in the mid-infrared spectrum (10600 nm) and new versions have a super or ultra pulsed mode and its chromophore is water.

It is most effective for depressed atrophic acne scars. However it is also used for wrinkles, sagging of skin and for skin rejuvenation and free hand co2 laser is used to treat papular acne scars over nose and chin.

Fractional Erbium YAG Laser:

This is a solid-state laser and emits a wavelength of 2940nm and its chromophore is water and is closer to the peak spectrum of water and therefore has an absorption coefficient 12-16times higher than the CO2 laser. It is also a versatile laser and can be used in different modes such as ablative or non-ablative for atrophic acne scars.

Fractional Erbium Glass Laser:

It is one of most advance non-ablative laser technology with contact cooling, used for acne scars and rejuvenation of skin. It works at 1550 nm wavelength on the deeper layers of the dermis without affecting the superficial layers of the skin with no downtime unlike other fractional technologies.

MNRF (Micro-needling Radiofrequency)

The micro-needles are driven directly into the skin at a certain depth, and radiofrequency energy is then released; generating heat throughout the dermis resulting in volumetric tightening, collagen remodelling and production.

It is considered safer than fractional laser treatment for atrophic acne scars or open pores or sagging skin and can be used on all types of skin without any major adverse effects.

Fractional Micro-Skin resurfacing RF: [FSR]:

It is done with radiofrequency device and is not a laser; it can be used in a patient having laser phobia; for treating any atrophic or acne scar.

Pico Laser

Pico laser is a new innovation in treating acne scars by inducing optical breakdown or micro-subsicion; which promotes collagen and elastin production. Pico Laser (or picosecond laser) is a laser device that uses very short pulse duration < 1 nano second which predominantly causes photoacoustic damage. Picosecond laser is mainly used for pigmentation removal, acne scars, skin rejuvenation and brightening, and tattoo removal. 

Pulsed dye laser (PDL):

Pulsed dye laser are basically designed to rid patients of benign vascular lesions; they can also be used to treat scars especially red acne scars or fresh scars, hypertrophic or keloid scars.

Enerjet

It uses pneumatic energy to first break up the tight scar tissue underneath the skin which responds to microtrauma by stimulating elastin and collagen production; after which microdroplets of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid are delivered resulting in an improvement of the acne scars and is also ideal for kinetic facelifts, scar repair, and dermal thickening. (No needles, no risks of burns, no tissue necrosis. It is just safe with long-lasting results.)
