4 Types Of Acne Scars And How To Treat Them

Acne scars fall into two main categories: they are caused by tissue damage (atrophic scars) and they are caused by excess tissue (hypertrophic scars). I am going to tell you some remedies for these scars treatment. Among these categories, there are four main types of acne scars: ice pick, box car, rolling and keloid scars.

1. Ice Pick Scars
The skin appears to have been pierced with an ice pick or pointing tool. Ice picks form small, thin and deep pores in the skin. Some appear as large, open holes.

Treatment Of Ice Pick Scars
Punch sorting is a common ice pick scar treatment. During this procedure, your doctor will use a small, cookie-cutter-like tool to cut the scar. The skin sticks together to heal again.
Punch grafting is performed for large, dark ice pick spots. Like the punch fraction, the burned tissue is removed from the skin. The hole is then filled with a graft of skin (usually from behind the ear). Although these two processes leave small scars, the resulting scars are flat and spread evenly around the skin, so they are less noticeable.

2. Boxcar Scars
Boxer spots are round or oval depressions on the vertical sides that are erect. Compared to ice pick spots, boxer’s stains give the skin an uneven, clogged appearance.

Treatment Of Boxcar Scars
Like ice pick scars, boxing marks can be treated with punch aggression. This type of scar can also be treated with Pancha subluxation.
The most common treatments for boxer spots are dermal filler. This scar is injected, which helps to stretch the depressed areas of the skin and also leaves it around the surrounding ski surface.

3. Rolling Scars
These types of scars can cause depressions like rolling or waves on the skin that are commonly seen. Rolling spots are different from boxcar stains because they are not severely defined. The skin looks uneven and nicely brittle.

Treatment Of Rolling Scars
Elimination is an effective method used to treat rolling spots. It is a simple surgical procedure performed as a patient, as a local patient. A scalpel is inserted parallel to the skin, cutting the fibrous base of the scar, pulling it down from the skin. After the band is cut, the skin looks smooth.

4. Hypertrophic and Keloid Scars
The more severe type of keloids is the embossed scar. These are separated by hypertrophic spots, which are larger than the actual lesion of the keloids. They can cause swollen, lateral shoots to extend far beyond the wound and grow long after the actual wound has healed. Some people are at risk of developing keloids.

Treatment Of Hypertrophic and Keloid Scars
There are a variety of options for this kind of acne scars treatment. The best treatment for you depends on your personal condition but may include steroid (cortisone) creams, silicone gels, cryotherapy (removing liquid nitrogen from the scar), tape, and pulsed. Laser treatment or injection can help remove and even out the scar.
