Acne Scar Treatment in Delhi

Acne is common in many teens and adults. Statistics show that one out of five people with acne will develop scars that mark their face, neck, chest, and shoulders. These scars may or may not fade over time, depending on their severity. People with severe acne need medical treatments to get rid of the scars. We at Mehektagul Dermaclinic provide effective acne scar treatment in Delhi based on your skin condition and the severity of the scars. 

How Does Acne Lead to Acne Scars?

Acne is a pimple that grows on the skin’s surface due to clogged pores filled with oil, bacteria, and dead cells. Acne can also appear under the skin as lumps and lead to sensitivity, inflammation, and pain. Acne scars are a result of this inflammation. Surface-level scars heal and fade over time. Some require over-the-counter topical applications to lighten and even the skin tone. 

However, a dermatologist needs to treat deep scars. It’s important to first treat acne and address the root of the problem before dealing with the scars. This improves overall skin health. Seek expert help for personalized acne scar treatment in Delhi. Our dermatologists can create tailored solutions to meet individual needs and promote optimal skin health.

Types of Acne Scars

acne scar treatment in Delhi: Acne scars are of two major types: depressed scars and raised scars.

Acne scars are of two major types: depressed scars and raised scars.

Atrophic or Depressed Scarring

A slight indentation in the skin results from the loss of skin tissue, which causes the depressed scars.

  • Ice Pick: The scar resembles an ice pick with a wide opening that narrows as it goes deep into the skin. It is found where the skin is thinner, like the forehead and upper cheeks. 
  • Rolling: The scars have sloping edges and appear on thicker skin, like the lower cheeks, jawline, etc. They make the skin appear wavy. 
  • Boxcar: The scars have U-shaped indents with sharper edges and go deep into the skin. They are commonly found on the jaw and lower cheeks. 

Hypertrophic or Keloid Scarring

In an effort to repair the damaged skin, excessive collagen production results in raised scars known as keloid scars. This leads to extra layers of skin and results in a bumpy and uneven skin surface. It can be seen on the face, back, chest, and shoulders. These scars are itchy and painful.

Treatment for Acne Scars

Best acne scar treatment in Delhi: Treatment for acne scars from mehektagul dermaclinic

Acne scars can be treated using various methods. Depending on your skin condition and the severity of the scars, our expert dermatologist may advise a combination of clinical sessions, topical treatments, and oral medication. Following are some of the effective acne scar treatment in Delhi available at the clinic:

  • Dermabrasion

It is the best treatment for acne scars on the face. It is effective for reducing rolling and boxcar scars by deeply exfoliating the skin and allowing the crates to be refilled with collagen. It has the same principle as microneedling. 

  • Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are acid peels that remove the top layer of the skin to reduce deeper scars and are suitable for all types of acne scars. These should not be applied at home or without medical supervision. Chemical peels can burn the skin when used wrongly. 

  • Laser Resurfacing

It is similar to chemical peels and removes the top skin layer. Laser resurfacing requires less downtime and suits people with lighter skin tones. It is also suitable for all types of acne scars, but the treated area has to be covered with a bandage until it is fully healed. 

  • Fillers

Fillers are injections that fill the indented acne scars and even the skin surface. The fillers can be collagen, fat, or contain other biomaterials. They are injected under the scar to fill and plump out depressed scars. This treatment requires maintenance once every six to eighteen months in some cases. However, it is not suitable if you have too many acne scars. 

  • Microneedling

Microneedling is done through a handheld device with tiny needles that puncture the skin, forcing it to heal by producing collagen. It reduces deeper scars but requires multiple sessions and takes time to show the results. 

  • Injections

Injecting corticosteroids, etc., into raised scars will cause them to loosen over time and become smaller. Then, the smaller scar will eventually disappear. This treatment requires several sessions once every few weeks. 

  • Subcision

Subcision is where the raised acne scar is removed through a short surgical process. While this also leads to a scar, it is smaller and will fade with time. This method is suitable for raised scars and deeper depressed scars. 

  • Surgery/Excision  

In this treatment, the surgeon will cut off the individual scars and fix the wound with stitches or grafting. This requires more downtime, as the skin needs to naturally heal from the wounds and achieve an even tone. It is also known as punch-grafting.

  • Cryosurgery 

Cryosurgery treatment involves using liquid nitrogen to freeze the raised acne scar tissue. The scar will freeze and fall off, allowing the skin surface to heal. 

  • Alpha-hydroxy Acids

AHAs are components used in acne treatments. They clear the clogged pores and remove dead skin. The acids make the scar less visible and suit all acne scars. Doctors use mild AHA acids to exfoliate the skin and reduce discoloration. 

  • Lactic Acid

Lactic acid peels every two weeks for three months can improve the skin texture and reduce all acne scars. However, it can cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in people with sensitive skin. Using over-the-counter lactic acid peels can be risky. 

  • Vitamin-A derivates

Doctors prescribe topical creams to enhance skin texture, lessen discoloration, and fade acne scars over time. These are suitable for mild-to-moderately depressed scars. However, retinoids cause skin sensitivity. Apply sunscreen when using these creams. 

  • Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is a common ingredient found in OTC topical applications for acne. It can also treat all types of acne scars, but it takes time to show the results. This treatment has to be combined with others for greater effectiveness. Salicylic acid causes skin dryness. 

Expert Tip: Finally, apply sunscreen when going out in the sun. It can prevent the scars from darkening and make them less visible. Choose a sunscreen based on your skin type to avoid aggravating acne.
