Yes. Type of scarring will dictate your best treatment options. Sometimes fillers, fat grafting, surgical excision or sanding of the sites are chosen. Occasionally use of laser resurfacing and chemical peels (medium to deep) are recommended.
Yes. Surgical excision of acne scars may be performed, but that would leave scars as well. The best treatments are probably nonsurgical, such as dermabrasion, lasers, chemical peels and dermarolling.
Certainly. The narrow deep "ice pick" type scars can be easily cut out with a tiny circular surgical punch that remives the whole pitted scar which is the closed with a few fine sutures. Longer scars may be excised with careful closure along anatomic lines that parallel normal skin creases. Dermabrasion is helpful for shallow scarring.
Of course. But choose the right procedure for your scars. Meet with a specialist to review your options.
Acne scars. Acne scars, like all scars, are permanent. The best you can achieve is that you make them less visible. Scars being full thickness skin damage, as such, require a fairly aggressive treatment to improve them. Laser resurfacing, done by competent practitioner will give a good result. For smaller areas punch excision or subcision can be done.
No Magic. Unfortunately scars are permanent. With that said we can do things to make them less noticeable. First any active components should be treated medically. Then deep pock marks can be punch excised and finally the skin can be smoothed some with dermabrasion, chemical peels or laser resurfacing. Expect a noticeable improvement but not a miracle and you will be happy.
How do you get rid of those deep acne scars? & tighten your face? & make your hair thinker & grow way fast? All without surgery or spending bug bucks?
Dermatologist. You may need a prescription strength acne medication to help with scarring. For your hair, you may need to see a dermatologist for evaluation on your hair, nutrition, age, activity, genetics etc.
Get a magic wand. It truly is difficult to defy mother nature. There are few if any magic tricks that are free. Your diet and exercise and leading a sensible life of moderation avoiding extremes and poisons (tobacco) within the context of your genetics will determine your growth. Acne scars are permanent marks in your skin that can be improved but not removed.
Is there any way to get rid of acne scars, 100%? I mean are plastic surgeries done for acne scars removal?
Can improve scars. Plastic surgery can significantly IMPROVE acne scars with a wide variety of modalities, ranging from skin emolients to injectables, to dermabrasions or Laser resurfacing....Dr. Csaba L.Magassy.
Excision. It all depends on the scar, but excising (surgically removing) the scar can be one of the more succesful treatments for severe scars.
Any Age. Laser surgery for acne may be utilized for patients of any age. Acne is a skin condition that affects those in puberty or adolescence.
Age isn't main issue. Generally ablative laser treatments that remove tissue are recommended after active acne breakouts have stopped. This often doesn't occur until late teen years or after (parental consent may be required). Ablative laser treatments should be delayed for at least one year after Accutane use. A variety of other laser/light treatments for active acne can help control breakouts and reduce scarring.
Nope. Surgery causes scarring. There are various dermatological treatments that can decrease the appearance of scars, but not remove them. See dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Yes, for improvement. Scar excision, subcision, fillers/fat grafting, tca cross, dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels are options for acne scars. These options have various ranges of improvement. For best results, it is better to get the skin surface relatively smooth before using the skin resurfacing procedures. If acne scars are depressed, skin resurfacing may improve the texture, but not the flatness.
Young enough? I'm really sorry you ended up with acne scars. It must have been severe, and it should have been managed like any other serious, chronic disease. You're basically grown-up now, and you need to be under the care of a competent physician for acne until it self-cures. Once it's managed, surgery for the scars is your choice. Best wishes.
Acne scars. Acne scars can be improved (not made to disappear altogether) by dermabrasion, chemical peel, laser peel, punch excision, subcision and of course, make up.
DIfferent techniques. Are available. Depending on the location, depth, and size of the scar your facial plastic surgeon may recommend different treatment options. Laser treatments or peels can help for more superficial scars. Ice pick type scars can be helped by excision and follow up treatments like dermabrasion.
