What happens when you get affected by a pimple? Your skin gets swollen and infected and at that time nodules along with cysts can develop and break. When the acne is severe and deep enough, the facial tissue can be injured. It causes damage to the tissues and cells of the skin. A functional tissue will reinstate the damaged component. These tissues become acne scars.
An acne scar, just like any scar, is the unpleasant consequence of a healed wound, or in this case, acne. Depending on the sternness of your acne, the scars can be quite difficult to remove. Luckily, there are several procedures you can choose from to remove acne scars.
There are commonly three types of scars:
1. Atrophic Scars: These are either flat or depressed scars. It is further classified in to ice pick scars, boxcar scars and rolling scars.
2. Hypertrophic scars: These are an elevated and raised scar that happens because of excessive tissues healing response.
3. Keloid scars: These are raised and thick scars which extend beyond the site of infection or injury, it might be painful or itchy at times.
Platelet-Rich Plasma effectively fade away stretch marks and scars while being gentle on the skin.
Silicone Sheets soften and fade new and old scars, minimize formation of new scars, and conceal while you heal.
Microdermabrasion uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outer layer of the dead, dry skin cells to reveal younger and healthier skin.
Chemical peel is a treatment in which the old layers of the skin are removed, giving way to new layers which are smoother and scar free.
Intralesional injections are injected into scar tissues (keloid and hypertrophic scars) to reduce the size and growth of the tissues.
Derma roller is an instrument that has multiple tiny needles of 1-1.5mm length when this procedure is done; the needles try to create multiple micro injections to the top layer of the skin. It can be also done along with PRP or other serums.
Laser Resurfacing is an advanced technique where light beams are pulsated into the skin to combat wrinkles and scars.
Face Platelet-Rich Plasma(PRP) helps in improving the collagen production which eventually lifts up your acne scars and tightens your skin. PRP is a non-surgical technique designed to improve the patient’s skin texture, smoothen wrinkles, and effectively treat scars.
Hairline International provides the best scar removal treatment in Bangalore for different types of scars mentioned below:
1.1 Keloid scars: When skin gets injured, some tissues will form on the wound called fibrous tissues which protects the injury. In some situations, scar tissues grow excessively-- they are called keloid scars. These type of scars can form anywhere in the body but most commonly we can find them on shoulders, chest, earlobes and cheeks. Keloid scars don’t harm your health, it just a beauty concern.
1.2 Contracture scars: When you’re skin burns up to second and third degree, the surrounding skin pull together which results in contractual scars. These scars need to treated immediately otherwise scars can result in restriction of movement around the injured area.
1.3 Hypertrophic scars: These scars occur because of the collision. These scars form with red colour and are almost similar to keloids but do not form beyond the boundaries of injury.
1.4 Acne scars: Acne scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions.
Common side effects include redness of the skin, swelling of treated area and moderate irritation.
It depends on the individual’s skin concern. Normally a course of 4- 6 sessions spaced across 1-2 months will be fine.
