Working On Those Scars From Acne

When our skin has suffered from injury, it creates a break on the skin, and this makes the wound susceptible to infection. In response, our body’s main line of defense is the activation of our white blood cells. These cells are mainly responsible for fighting off foreign bodies and microorganisms in the body. When the skin breaks, numerous white blood cells travels towards the injured area, and slows closes up the open wound. When that happens, it sometimes leaves small impressions or “craters” on the skin, which can last from several months to even years. These scars can be classified according to its size and diameter.
Ice pick scars are the smallest, with 1-2 mm in diameters and leaves the face pockmarked. Rolling scars range from 4-5 mm in size or even larger, and are characterized by fibrous bands which leaves the skin rough and uneven. Perhaps the most visible are box scars, which are at least 3 mm large and are akin to scar wounds left behind by chicken box. Although the skin has been healed, these visible acne scars are left behind, making the skin uneven, and sometimes rough. Some people who have a lot of acne scarring have to deal with the problems of self-image and their level of physical attractiveness. This can also create a certain amount of stress, especially for the women.
Now, there is hope for acne scarring sufferers. New treatments for acne scarring have been developed over the years, and people can have different options to choose from. These medical techniques may vary in cost, according to its effectiveness in removing acne scars. It would be wise to consult with a dermatologist in order to determine which treatment is best for one’s skin condition.
Subcision is a surgical procedure used to remove rolling scars and box scars. It requires the application of a local anesthesia to the injured area, and then cutting out the scar tissue, thereby allowing blood to flow into the acne scar area in order to heal and level off with the rest of the skin layers. Laser skin resurfacing will then be used to smoothen the surrounding skin layers. On the other hand, for deep box scars and more severe acne scarring, a combination treatment of punch excision and punch elevation will be utilized. This involves excising the scar tissue to lift it off the skin layer, and allowing it to heal. Its relative higher elevation levels it off with the rest of the skin area. Perhaps the best way to remove the scar, soften the skin and allow it to heal is using acne light therapy. This treatment makes use of laser treatment to bounce off acne light on the skin, removing the scar and smoothening its surface area. It typically takes several sessions for it to be effective.
