Acne scars

Acne is a very common problem that not only adolescents suffer from. With some of the people affected, the acne will heal up completely without leaving any scars. However, in many cases sometimes deep scars remain and affect not only the complexion but possibly also the respective person’s well-being.

What causes acne scars

Acne scars are related to dermal alterations after the skin’s recovery from severe inflammation. The body attempts to “repair” damaged connective tissue and restore the dermal structure. However, if the respective injuries have been too severe, scars might remain. The structure and functions of skin affected by acne scars differ significantly from those of the surrounding unaffected skin. Such skin will no longer produce sebaceous and sweat glands. Moreover, its elasticity is clearly reduced, which might result in consolidation of the skin. Additionally, the skin’s perfusion and moisture regulation are severely restricted.

 

How to treat acne scars

Generally, we differentiate between atrophic and hypertrophic acne scars. Atrophic scars are recesses in the skin that might have different shapes (“ice picks”, craters, etc.). Hypertrophic scars are ridges on the skin’s surface that are less frequently suffered from by former acne patients. Depending on the intensity and type of respective acne scars, we deploy the Revlite laser combind with Jet-peeling, fractional CO2 laser and PRP micro-needling.
