Types Of Acne Scars

Types Of Acne Scars

At Qazi Cosmetic Center, we are internationally recognized for treating acne scars, recognize the diverse nature of acne scars and offer a range of advanced treatments to address each type. We will explain the different types of acne scars and the personalized solutions available at our center.

Types of Acne Scars:

  1. Ice Pick Scars: These narrow, deep scars can benefit from precise treatments such as TCA Cross, where trichloroacetic acid is carefully applied to stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of the scars.
  2. Boxcar Scars: Characterized by broad depressions, boxcar scars respond well to laser treatments, which stimulate collagen production and promote skin renewal. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are also effective in smoothing out the skin's surface.
  3. Rolling Scars: Rolling scars, with their wave-like appearance, can be addressed through subcision—a technique that breaks the fibrous bands causing the depressions. Additional treatments like microneedling help stimulate collagen and improve skin texture.
  4. Hypertrophic Scars: Raised hypertrophic scars find relief through laser therapy, which targets excess collagen and reduces redness. Corticosteroid injections may also be recommended to flatten and improve the appearance of these scars.
  5. Keloid Scars: Keloid scars, extending beyond the original wound, can benefit from laser therapy and surgical excision to manage and improve their appearance.
