Advanced Acne Scar Treatment- By Skin Experts

Acne scars are the dark and swollen abysses left in the skin long after the pimple has healed. Scars form when a flare-up penetrates the skin deeply and damages the tissues beneath it. These dark acne marks are generally the result of inflamed imperfections when the open pores become engorged with excess sebum, pollutants, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The body attempts to repair them by forming new collagen fibers. This repair is not as smooth and flawless as the natural skin.


Acne scarring can take various forms, such as hypertrophic scars resembling elevated, hard, and red papules or bumps. Atrophic scars may be larger, broader scars or small pits. People experiencing acne scarring can get it treated with the best cosmetic dermatology treatments offered by the skin specialist in Gurgaon at Skin Zest. In this clinic, all the advanced state-of-the-art procedures are offered that help make skin flawless and smoother. Read on for more information:


Types of Acne Scars:


1. Pigmented acne scars: Pigmented acne scars are at the same level as the skin and are darker than the surrounding skin. Pigmented acne scars can be dark or red in color.


2. Depressed acne scars: Depressed acne scars are lower than the level of the skin, formed when enough collagen does not produce during the wound healing process. Three types of atrophic scars are:


·   Boxcar: These are large, U-shaped scars that have pointed edges. The simpler they are, the better they respond to advanced acne scars.

·   Ice pick: Ice pick scars are confined, V-shaped scars that can go deep into the skin. These are the most problematic scars to treat because they can spread far beneath the skin's surface.

·   Rolling: These large depressions usually have rounded edges and a distinctive, rolling appearance.


3. Elevated acne scars: These scars stand above the surface of the surrounding skin and are caused by too much collagen production during the healing process. They can be small and soft, as visible on the nose and chin, or large and hard on the chest and back.


Treatment for all types of acne scarring is offered at Skin Zest, the best skin clinic in Gurgaon. This includes:


Chemical Peel: A chemical peel is a popular skin-exfoliation method using a solution of different acidic chemicals applied to the face. This process makes the outer layer of skin peel off to smoothen the skin's surface. The peels remove the dry surface skin cells, improving fine lines, acne, and skin discoloration. In addition, chemical peels provide deep exfoliation, providing a fresh layer of skin.


TCA CROSS: Using trichloroacetic acid, TCA CROSS is a method of chemically regenerating skin scars. It is typically used in a low concentration and improves the appearance of facial scars and skin aging. Treatment of atrophic acne scars is performed as an outpatient clinic procedure. It is an inexpensive, safe, and efficient treatment.


The TCA CROSS procedure involves depositing small amounts of TCA at a high concentration (70–100%) onto the surface of the atrophic scar. This results in a localized inflammatory response that promotes the growth of new collagen fibers. It also aims to improve the scar's appearance by increasing collagen reflectance and reducing shadows cast over scar depressions. With this therapeutic approach alone, complete resolution is unlikely to be attained.


Using TCA CROSS depends on the type and severity of acne scarring, candidate preference and expectations, and clinician experience and expectations. TCA is exclusively administered to the scar and not the surrounding skin, making TCA CROSS special. TCA destroys the scar and denatures the collagen, triggering the production of new collagen to cover the scar. The deeper the scar, the better it functions. Collagen stimulation forms at least 3–4 weeks and peaks at 3–4 months.


Boxcar acne scars, ice-pick acne scars, and rolling acne scars can all be treated with TCA Cross. Additionally, deep open pores and prominent pores are treatable with TCA CROSS. Treatments can be combined with TCA CROSS for acne scars, including topical retinoids, micro-needling, fractional laser treatment, and subcision. Also, TCA CROSS combined with dermal fillers such as Restylane, Sculptra, Juvederm, and other laser treatments for the best outcomes.


Laser: A laser is used to reduce the appearance of scars. Laser therapy is the most effective and advanced treatment for mild to moderate acne scars and improves the skin's texture. This procedure works with the help of a beam of laser light penetrating the upper layer of the skin to stimulate new, healthy skin cell growth. It is a great option to revive skin by removing older, damaged skin, so that allows growth for new, healthy skin in its place. This method also boosts collagen buildup by inflicting micro-injuries on the skin that trigger the body's healing system. In addition, it can help the scar return to the original color of the surrounding skin. Laser treatment is helpful with many common types of scars, including acne, surgical, burn, and injury scars. In addition, a dermatologist at Skin Zest advises patients to undergo multiple scar treatments over several months to see the best results.


Subcision: Subcision, or subcutaneous incisional surgery, is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure used for treating depressed scars offered at Skin Zest.


Microneedling: Microneedling, a form of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), skin needling, or percutaneous collagen induction, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that makes controlled injuries beneath the skin's surface with tiny, sterile needles, which induces the body to respond through the formation of new tissue. This procedure is also used for anti-aging procedures such as eyelid surgery and sun spots.

The micro-needling treatment stimulates new collagen and elastin production to make the skin smoother, firmer, more toned, and younger-looking. In addition to stimulating collagen, the channels made from the microneedles enable topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively by the top layer of the skin.


Microneedling causes the skin to plump up and ultimately reduces the appearance of scars and fine lines. In addition, micro-needling has become more prevalent within skin care practices with the evolution of equipment and techniques.


Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers are injected inside the skin to raise depressed areas of acne scars or stimulate the skin's natural collagen production. Fillers can be used on the areas of the face, including the lips, nose, cheeks, chin, and around the mouth. The dermal filler consists of collagen sourced, which adds volume to the skin, making indented scars look less noticeable, and small polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) beads, which structurally support the skin and allow for more collagen to develop.


BB Glow Facial Treatment: The BB Glow treatment is a form of semi-permanent foundation performed at Skin Zest to even out uneven skin tone, dark spots, and blemishes. This procedure is just like wearing a foundation without actually applying any makeup. In this treatment, scientifically proven and quality-tested products are used to hide skin imperfections. They also help improve overall skin quality, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, reduce acne spots, and reduce the appearance of dark circles. The procedure causes deep cleansing and exfoliation of the dead skin cells. The exfoliating gel used in this procedure causes neutralization of the skin. The booster serum and BB Glow serum are applied to reduce skin tanning, blemishes, and dark acne scars. Then a hydrating mask is applied along with LED light therapy.
