ACNE SCARS

 

Acne Scars are permanent marks on the skin that can occur as a result of trauma, acne, burns or surgery. Until recently there have been very limited solutions, other than surgical revision. The contemporary laser devices, including the fractional lasers, have revolutionized the treatment of all types of scars in most skin types.

Acne scars fall into two main categories:

  • Atrophic Scars - loss of tissue;
  • HyperTrophic Scars - excessive tissue.

Within these categories there are four main types of acne scars:

  • Ice pick
  • boxcar
  • rolling
  • keloid
