Understanding Facial Acne Scars
Acne scarring is one of the most common skin ailments that affect millions of Americans. People who had severe acne at some point in their lives are more likely to develop acne spots and scars long after the active acne is gone. They usually form when acne breakouts reach too deeply into the skin layers and damage the skin tissues underneath.

Acne scars often appear as blemishes or dents on the surface of the skin. But before trying out different treatments for acne scars, it’s important to find out which type of acne scar appears on the skin first. Here are the common types of acne scars:

✓ Boxcar Scars – Broad scars that have well-defined edges. They’re either deep or shallow depressions on the surface of the skin.
✓ Ice Pick Scars – These narrow, V-shaped scars go deep into the skin.
✓ Rolling Scars – There are wide scars with rounded edges and a rolling appearance.
✓ Hypertrophic Scars – These scars develop above the skin’s surface because the body overproduces collagen during the natural healing process.
✓ Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation – Discolored or dark spots on the skin that become lighter after a few months with enough sun protection.

Scar Revision Q & A

What is scar revision?

Scar revision is a procedure that improves the appearance of scar tissue. It’s a great option if you have a large scar, raised scarring, or scars that create irritation or pain. 

Scars form as your body responds to damage in the dermal layer of your skin. Your body creates new collagen fibers to repair damaged skin. While this process is highly effective, the newly formed tissue isn’t an exact match to your existing skin.

Scarring can be flat and pale or red and raised. Your scar can have a sunken or pitted appearance. Stretch marks are long, often jagged lines of scar tissue in areas where your skin has been abnormally stretched.

Who should consider scar revision?

Scar revision is a good fit for anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their scar tissue. It doesn’t matter if you have one or many scars or if they are large or small. If your scars bother you, revision offers a great solution. 

Medrein Health & Aesthetics offers laser scar revision, a procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to gently ablate scar tissue. The Fotona® system uses dual-wavelength technology to combine two types of laser energy to create safe and impressive results. 

This innovative laser technology allows Dr. Mikki to control the treatment to best meet your needs. This also reduces the risk of removing excess tissue or damaging your skin. 

What is the recovery process after scar revision?

It’s important to take good care of your skin after laser scar revision. Dr. Mikki explains exactly how to care for the treatment area and encourages adhering to those guidelines for proper healing. 

After treatment, a bandage may be placed over the area to protect your skin. You may need to leave that bandage in place for the first 24 hours after your procedure.

Cleaning the area with a saline solution multiple times each day can help prevent a scab from forming. The healing process takes between 5-21 days. If you’re concerned about any unusual changes in your skin during the healing process, call the office to book a follow-up visit.
