Acne scars

Specialty of Dermatology

Acne marks or acne scars can be removed using different methods depending on the skin type and the type of mark on the skin. Given the high occurence of acne on the most visible part of the body, the face, it is important to choose the best treatment that avoids leaving scars behind. There are different types of acne scars, including pigmented scars and rolling scars. The former is characterised by a pink or brown colouring remaining on the skin once the spot disappears. This is due to the concentration of pigment on the spot when it is healing. Rolling scars, on the other hand, are broad depressions with sloping edges. Those with fair skin are more likely to have them. The techniques used to remove acne scars include different types of peels, dermabrasion, CO2 laser or fractioned laser.
