Tired of Acne scars !!Some procedures may help you get rid of them..
Acne scars is a dreaded complication of acne.
It is always better to treat acne well in time so as to avoid getting them.
There are v good drugs available to control acne.
Consult your Dermatologist at the earliest if you notice red pus filled or big nodular or cystic acne on your face as they have high propensity to leave behind scars.
Acne scars may be atrophic( depressed) or hypertrophic/ keloidal( raised)
Both these types require some procedure for correction as medicines alone don,t work much on them
Your Dermatologist is the best person to decide the therapy best suited for your scars
Commonly done procedures for scars include
Lasers ( ablative/ non ablative)
PRP( platelet rich plasma)
All these induce some sort of collagen production in the skin thereby reducing the depth of the scars
Your Dermatologist may also prescribe some topical creams containing vitamin c , hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid etc to be used in combination with these procedures.
Hypertrophic / keloid scars may require some injections to be given inside the scar and also some lasers
