What causes acne scars?

Acne is an inflammatory response to acne lesions, papules, pimples, or cysts. It tends to occur when pores and hair follicles filled with pus, excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria rupture the skin’s surface. The infected pore contents spill out and damage the surrounding skin tissue, creating the perfect conditions for an acne scar. The body’s natural healing instinct is to repair the damaged skin tissue by generating new collagen.

During the healing stage the body can overproduce collagen, resulting in uneven or discolored scar tissue. Icepick scars are more serious and tend to occur when there is a rupture deep in the follicular wall. With current advances in acne scar removal technologies, however, even these deep ice pick scars can be treated very effectively and affordably.

Great experience with a wonderful team. I came to Alinea to treat acnes scars and both Dr. Mahmoud and Sonia Mace took great care to explain their recommendations and make sure I fully understood the procedures. The profound laser, subcision scar and fraxel treatments were recommended. Dr. Mahmoud performed the profound and subcision treatements and was incredibly comforting and professional. Sonia performed the fraxel and was also incredibly professional and comforting. Antonella was also amazing in helping to coordinate everything and make me feel at ease. I am only a month or so after the first treatment and already am seeing some initial results. For such a sensitive area as acne scars can be, I couldn't have asked for a better team.

Different grades of acne and best treatment options for each

Grade 1 acne scars

The treatment options include IPL, HydraFacial, Microneedling, Microdermabrasion in combination with chemical peels and topical skin-lighteners such as retinol, salicylic acid, lactic acid, resorcinol, kojic acid, mandelic acid, and tretinoin.

Grade 2 acne scars

Mostly surface marks with mild depressions or slightly thickened epidermis. These scars are best addressed by gentle surfacing and slight volume improvement. Treatment options include: IPL, Fraxel non-ablative resurfacing lasers in combination with chemical peels Microneedling and Microdermabrasion.

Grade 3 acne scars

This is considered “moderate scarring” with the presence of atrophic (depressed) scars or hypertrophic (thickened) scars.This type of scar needs a multi-device or combination approach to resurface the skin using FRAXEL laser, IPL to address pigment issues and dermal fillers such as Restylane® or Juvederm® for volume improvement.

Icepick acne scar treatments are treated with a specialized process. Punch excision and punch grafting involves cutting out the scar then suturing or gluing the opening together. A small scar may be left from the procedure but because it is smaller and level with the surrounding skin’s surface, it’s much less noticeable than the original ice pick scar.

Grade 4 Acne scars

This is considered “severe scarring” with severe atrophic (depressed or pitted) scars or hypertrophic (very thick) scars that remain raised even when the skin is stretched. These are the deep boxcar scars, icepick scars and deep-pit acne scars. Severe conditions like this require a series of Fraxel, IPL, and chemical peels to improve the skin’s surface. Deep depressions can be addressed with dermal fillers such as Restylane® or Juvéderm®.
