Acne scarring is a common and challenging problem affecting the majority of patients with acne. It can disturb the self-confidence and the mindset of a person. Delay in the treatment of acne often results in more severe scars.
Acne is an inflammatory disorder localized to pilosebaceous units of face, chest, upper back and arms, and scarring results from altered wound healing to this inflammation when more collagen is being degraded than being formed.
Epidermal damage can be seen in the form of erythema or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation whereas dermal damage can be seen in the form of Atrophic scars.
The good news is that YES there is a treatment for these scars.
Atrophic scars – They appear in the form of indentations on the skin. They are further classified according to the size and depth of destruction:
- Ice-pick scars – Appear as narrow, less than 2mm, V-Shaped epithelial tracts that extend vertically into the deep dermis and subcutaneous tissue.
- Box scars – 1.5 mm-4.0 mm wide, round to oval depressions with sharply demarcated vertical edges.
- Rolling scars – Widest, reach up to 5mm in diameter. Superficial shadowing and undulating appearance of scars are due to fibrous anchoring of dermis to the subcutaneous tissue.
The treatment approach for Atrophic scars depends on:
- Depth of scars
- Type of scars
- Presence of erythema
- Location of scars
- Patient’s baseline phenotype
Modalities of treatment for Scars:
- Radiofrequency Microneedling
