Acne Scars

Acne scars are visible marks or indentations that remain on the skin after an episode of severe acne or inflammation. They are the result of the body’s natural healing process following the damage caused by inflamed acne lesions. Acne scars can vary in appearance, texture, and severity, and they often affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence.

There are different types of acne scars:

1) Atrophic Scars:

Ice Pick Scars, Boxcar Scars, Rolling Scars.

2) Hypertrophic Scars:

These scars are raised and raised above the skin’s surface. They occur due to excess collagen production during the healing process.

3) Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH):

While not true scars, PIH are flat areas of discoloured skin that appear after an acne lesion has healed. They are more common in individuals with darker skin tones.

The best treatment options

Laser Treatments:

Various laser therapies, such as fractional laser resurfacing and intense pulsed light, can help improve skin texture, reduce redness, and promote collagen production.

Dermal Fillers/ skin booster injection:

Injecting dermal fillers can help raise depressed scars to the level of surrounding skin, creating a smoother appearance.


Subcision is a minor surgical procedure where a needle is inserted under the skin to break up scar tissue and promote collagen growth.

Morpheus 8:

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It is designed to improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin texture, and sagging skin. Morpheus8 is known for its ability to target deeper layers of the skin, providing more significant results compared to traditional microneedling or RF treatments alone.

Skin care:

Effective daily skincare programme is crucial in addressing the causes of acne scars. Ingredients such as tretinoin are helpful in improving skin exfoliation.
