What is Acne scars?
Acne scars or Atrophic Scars are the result of inflammation of acne blemishes deep into the skin layer which make skin collapse more than usual and could not regenerate collagen in those areas. The acne scars appear after the inflamed and large pimples have healed.
Which type of acne can cause acne scars?
- Pustule : have been inflamed for a long time. Fill with pus, and usually in red color with yellow or white heads on top
- Cyst : the largest form of acne, very painful to the touch, and filled with pus and blood inside
- Bacterial acne : pops up and spreads in the subcutaneous skin layer
What are the types of acne scars?
Acne scars can be divided into 3 main types:
1. ICE PICK SCAR
It is the most severe level of acne scars, with a depth and narrow impressions. This type of scar is caused by pressing and squeezing the clogged acne and various inflamed pimples like cysts or pustules, resulting in the destruction of the dermis layer. Collagen that helps restore skin cells disappear. So it takes longer to heal this type of scar.
2. BOX SCAR
It is a moderate severity level of acne scars. It is a round or oval depression in the skin that happens after acne heals. This type of scar is caused by a large number of severe or inflammatory acne that may cause fibrosis attached to the dermis layer and often found among people who have had chicken pox.
3. ROLLING SCAR
It is a common type or scar that can occur after the acne healing process. It looks like an indent in the skin and tends to measure a few millimeters wide. The indents have sloping edges that might make the skin look mottled and uneven. This type of acne can be healed more easily than others.
How to treat acne scars?
There are many ways to treat Acne scars. Each method will stimulate the production of collagen fibers and the creation of new skin cells. Also it should help nourish skin cells, make the skin firm, brighter, and reduce wrinkles.
However, not every method is 100% effective, it depends on the type of scars and how long the treatment takes, including discipline in taking care of yourself after treatment. The famous methods for treating acne scars are as follows.
1. Laser scar removal
This method is very popular as it is easy to do and gives good results. It is suitable for people with all types of acne scars. The laser stimulates the production of new collagen and cells, removes old skin cells, and makes acne scars become more shallow and smoother. It also helps to reduce large pores problem as well.
After the laser treatment, there will be redness, scabs, and peeled dry skin. So it is necessary to apply skincare to nourish the skin and keep the skin moist all the time, including applying sunscreen before going out every time.
2. Radio Frequency (RF)
Radio Frequency treatment for acne scars is similar to laser treatment as it delivers energy to generate heat to the skin layer. This heat will stimulate the creation of new collagen and cells.
After Radio Frequency treatment, facial skin will become red or swollen. Therefore, it takes some time to recover. This treatment is suitable for people with all types of acne scars problems.
3. Vitamin A or Vitamin A acid
Treatment with vitamin A or vitamin A acid has the ability to help restructure the skin layer to be smooth. It will help create new collagen and cells, exfoliate old skin cells to make acne scars look more shallow, and reduce clogged and inflammatory acne.
This treatment is suitable for those who have problems with Rolling scars because the scar is not that shallow. The important precaution is do not use this type of treatment with pregnant women, it can cause harm to children.
