ACNE SCAR TREATMENT
"It's always seem impossible until it's done"
Acne scarring, which occurs in 95 percent of all people with acne vulgaris, can be challenging to treat.Severely inflamed lesions may leave permanent scars, which can be associated with psychological pain, low self-esteem, and reduced quality of life.
Scar formation is the normal and natural response of tissue to wound healing following an injury that is significant enough to elicit this host tissue response. The incidence of acne scarring may be increased above the background injury with manipulation or “picking” by the patient. These scars may be aesthetically unappealing

WHAT WILL WE USE TO TREAT ACNE SCAR ?
Resurfacing procedures are perhaps the most common interventions for treating acne scars. We use both laser and non-laser resurfacing. Resurfacing involves removing skin layers from the top down. Originally, dermabrasion was the main approach to treating acne scars.
In subcision, a specialized needle, usually 18 gauge, with the lumen or core stamped shut, is inserted percutaneously to release fibrotic scar bands in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, similar to a “mini-scalpel”. This approach results in a tethered scar being “released” and allows neocollagenesis to take place beneath the scar, helping to lift and smooth the surface contour.15 Subcision is useful for any depressed scars on the face, especially those classified as rolling.
Icepick scars may respond well to high-concentration trichloroacetic acid (TCA) for chemical reconstruction. In a study of 53 adult patients with atrophic acne scars, 70% TCA applied focally every two weeks using a chemical reconstruction of skin scars therapy (CROSS therapy) resulted in good or excellent improvement (defined as >50%) in 66 percent of patients based on patient and physician assessments. In that study, 81 percent of patients said they were satisfied or very satisfied with TCA treatment.16 In a study of 16 patients treated with 100% TCA, 69 percent reported excellent results (>75%), and the remainder reported good results.17 High-strength TCA is thought to cause remodeling of the dermal collagen.
Platelet rich plasma
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous preparation of platelets in concentrated plasma that beneficial in the treatment of atrophic acne scars by promoting collagen deposition. Skin needling is a technique that uses a sterile micro needles to puncture the skin and release growth factors.
