Smooth and clear skin with advanced acne scar treatments

by Dr Ashima Goel Skin Specialist in Chandigarh

Acne is a skin condition that occurs as a result of inflamed blemishes, caused by a blockage in skin pores due to excess oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. These acne breakouts can be very frustrating, but the scars that acne leaves behind are even worse. Some skin lesions are minor and heal quickly. But, sometimes, there is a deep break in pore walls, which causes infected material to spill out into the surrounding tissues creating deeper lesions. The skin tries to repair them by forming new collagen fibres, but these repairs aren't flawless and as smooth as the original skin. These scars are stubborn and leave a permanent mark on the face along with uneven skin texture. Fortunately, these acne scars can be treated with advanced cosmetic treatments. Parisa Skin Cosmetic & Laser Centre offers a variety of advanced acne scar laser treatment in Chandigarh under the guidance of skin specialist, Dr. Ashima Goel.


Atrophic or depressed acne scars:


Atrophic scars are the most common on the face. Atrophic scars sit below the surrounding skin. They are formed when the required amount of collagen is not produced while the wound is healing. Generally, there are three types of atrophic scars:


1. Ice pick scars: These scars are V-shaped, narrow scars that can go deep inside the skin. They may look like a small circular or an oval hole in the skin. They are most difficult to treat as they can extend deeper into the skin layer.


2. Boxcar: These are U-shaped, wide scars that have sharp edges. These can be deep or shallow. Shallower scars respond better to skin resurfacing treatments.


3. Rolling: These are wide depressions that have an irregular, rolling appearance with round edges.


Hypertrophic or raised acne scars


Hypertrophic scars are mostly found on the back and chest. A hypertrophic scar stands above the surface of the surrounding skin. They are formed when too much collagen is produced when the wound is healing.


Dark spots


Dark spots result from a condition known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These dark spots form as a consequence of excessively dry skin, and acne treatment generally leaves the skin dry. These spots can appear as red, purple, or brown marks that fade over a few months on their own.


Here is a list of some of the acne scar removal treatments for a healthy and even skin.


Chemical peels: Chemical peels are used to reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It involves the application of a chemical to the skin to remove its outer layer, providing the patient with smoother skin texture and even skin tone. The strength of the chemical peel used depends upon the severity of acne scars.



Fillers: Fillers are used for filling out certain types of acne scars. Substances like collagen, fat, or hyaluronic acid are used as fillers. It is mostly used around the scars that have caused a depressed like appearance of the skin. As fillers are eventually absorbed by the skin, one has to repeat the treatment every few month depending on the type of product used as a filler.


Dermabrasion: Dermabrasion is a very effective scar removal treatment. It involves using a rotating instrument to restore the surface of the skin and significantly reduce the depth of scars. During the process, the face is cleaned, eyes are covered, and the area to be treated is marked. Then, the doctor numbs the skin with a numbing cream. The dermabrader is moved across the skin with light and constant pressure. The outer layers of the skin are carefully removed to reveal new and smooth skin.


Microdermabrasion: This is a less intensive kind of dermabrasion. In this procedure, the doctor uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to remove the thick outer layer of the skin from the surface. Hence, it rejuvenates the skin. This can also improve the effects of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, melasma, age spots, and other skin-related conditions. Multiple sessions are recommended for significant results.


Lasers: A laser is used to remove the outer layer of the skin, that contours the acne-scarred areas, or to lighten redness around a healed acne. The best acne scar laser removal in Chandigarh is provided by Dr. Ashima Goel at Parisa Skin Cosmetic & Laser Centre. The laser treatment also encourages new and healthy skin cells to grow and replace the scar tissue. Types of laser treatments include:


  • Ablative laser resurfacing: This treatment aims to remove the top layer of the skin in the area where scarring has occurred.


  • Non-ablative laser resurfacing: This treatment helps to enhance collagen production and promote new cell growth to replace the damaged and scarred tissues.

  • Fractionated laser treatment: It is meant to stimulate the tissue under the scar to remove dark pigmented skin cells.


The above-mentioned treatments can improve the skin's aesthetics and appearance. But, the procedures must be performed by certified and qualified dermatologists. Dr. Ashima Goel is an expert at providing acne scar removal in Chandigarh. For best results, visit Parisa Skin Cosmetic & Laser Centre.
