Acne Scar Types and Treatment

Types of Acne Scars 

  • The two main types of acne scars are atrophic and hypertrophic. 
  • Atrophic scars are caused by loss of tissue. They are flat and shallow depressions and are mostly caused by severe cystic acne or by taking the wrong acne treatment.
  • Hypertrophic and keloid scars are caused by excess tissue. They appear in the form of raised scar tissue that develops on the site of acne. These types of scars are more common in people with darker skin and mostly develop on the chest, back, shoulders or jawline.
  • Post-inflammatory pigmentation can be considered another type of acne scarring, which is actually not a scar but a darker or red-colored patch of skin left behind by acne. Atrophic scars are further classified as boxcar, ice pick, and rolling scars.
  • Boxcar scars are broad and mostly caused by chickenpox, varicella, or severe acne. Ice pick scars are narrow and small indentations that point into the skin. They are difficult to treat.
  • Rolling scars have varying depths and sloping edges, due to which the skin appears uneven.
  • Papular: These scars are raised, papular and fibrotic, most commonly seen on the chin and nose.

Acne Scar Treatments

Chemical Peels: Outer layers of the skin are removed using glycolic acid and salicylic acid. This treatment works well for all types of acne scars to improve skin texture.

Microneedling: Needles are used to creating tiny injuries in the skin, thus promoting the generation of collagen and providing growth factors. It works well for depressed acne scars.

Taylor Liberator: This technique includes the use of tumescent anesthesia and a ‘to and fro’ motion with the ‘liberator’. Using this ‘to and fro’ motion, the operator ensnares the fibrous bands within the notches of the instrument, which are subsequently divided by the sharp areas within the notches. A small, 4mm entry port is made with a No. 11 or No. 15 blade to facilitate the entry of the liberator into the superficial subcutaneous plane.

Autologous Fat Transfer: It is the surgical process by which fat is transferred from one area of the body to another area. Fat grafting has been shown to last longer than fillers in terms of maintaining fullness.

Dermal Fillers: In this acne scar treatment method, a substance like hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin leading to improvement in the overall skin appearance. Fillers is a good treatment for boxcar and rolling types of scars.

Laser therapy: In ablative laser therapy, high energy is used to stimulate collagen that leads to neocollagenesis and improvement in scar depth. This treatment is good for all acne scar types.

Punch Grafting: A punch tool is used to remove the affected skin and skin from some other region is stitched back at the site. This is a good treatment for deep ice pick scars and is used when laser therapy, or chemical peels and may not work.

The application of alpha hydroxy acids, lactic acid, topical retinoids, and salicylic acid are some of the best treatments for acne scars, but laser and surgical interventions are required for the betterment of the scars. If you see acne scar before and after pictures, you will surely notice a significant positive difference in the skin's appearance after treatment. If the acne scar type is identified correctly and the most effective treatment for that scar type is administered, excellent results can be seen in the skin.

Non-Invasive Treatment Methods for Mild and Moderate Scars

This treatment is non-invasive as it works to improve the skin’s appearance through an application of chemicals (which are nothing but the proper extracts of fruit acids in graded concentrations) on the skin. Usually for the recent and superficial types of acne scars respond very well to a chemical peel. Certain biological reactions take place at the site of lesions on contact with the chemical and eventually peels off giving way to new skin that is visibly lighter and smoother. The type of chemical peel is decided based on the severity of the scars and the skin type. The idea behind this treatment is to help scrape off the old dead skin cells to reveal the new skin cells within, thus, giving a rejuvenated, healthy look on your face.

  • Microdermabrasion

This is the most common acne marks removal process owing to its ease and use to treat mild acne scars common among most people with skin problems. This treatment procedure involves the use of a mild abrasive instrument to gently sand off your skin to remove the thicker and uneven outer dead skin layer. Most commonly used to treat blemishes on the face, roughness, and post-acne pigmentation on the face. This method of exfoliation also stimulates collagen production.

These are devices with multiple microneedles in the case of dermaroller it comes with specific length requires manual intervention while in case of dermapen the depth of microneedles is adjustable and movement is automatic. These acne scar treatments create micro-wounds inside the scar tissue by piercing microneedles also creates microchannels for better penetration of certain rejuvenating serums into skin and promotes collagen and elastic tissue remodeling. . This collagen will reduce the appearance of scars.


TCA CROSS is the chemical reconstruction of skin scars (CROSS) using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This is one of the common acne scar treatments used to treat atrophic scars. During this facial scar treatment, the TCA is deposited in small amounts in high concentration over atrophic scars that spur a local inflammatory reaction. This stimulates increased collagen generation which fills up the scar depressions and improves skin appearance.

  • CO2 Laser

Fractional CO2 laser for acne scar removal is an invasive procedure. It is most effective for depressed or atrophic acne scars and uneven skin. It is also very effective against wrinkles, enlarged pores, sagging skin, and aids in skin rejuvenation. The cost of laser treatment for acne scars in Pune is decided based on the type of laser treatment required, the degree of acne scars, and the number of sessions required.

  • Erbium Glass (non-ablative) Laser

The erbium glass laser system with contact cooling is used to repair acne scars, sun damage as well as mild to moderate wrinkles. This laser works on the deeper layers of the dermis without affecting the superficial layers of the skin.

  • Microneedling with Radiofrequency

Once microneedles have been inserted into the skin, high-intensity radiofrequency is released onto the target tissue to stimulate collagen production and tighten the tissue. This treatment is minimally invasive as opposed to what it seems and is most preferred to treat problems of sagging skin and mitigate the appearance of scars and wrinkles on the face and elsewhere.

  • PRP( Platelet Rich Plasma)

New advanced skin treatment processes now also include skin rejuvenation procedures like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy that shows better results when combined with acne laser treatment. Many patients opt for the PRP treatment that involves re-injecting platelet-rich plasma into your skin to repair it and improve scars and other visible signs of aging.

This is often used to treat delicate and difficult to treat areas like the skin under the eyes. The laser treatment of acne scars cost is minimal and promises a long-lasting effect on the skin through the permanent removal of acne and scars. This is usually recommended as an add-on therapy after laser or excision therapy for the best possible results. The patient’s own blood is introduced back into the skin to stimulate the process of regeneration of skin cells and collagen.

Surgical Treatments for Moderate and Severe Scars

  • Subcision with Dermal Fillers or Fat Transfer

In this procedure, under localized anesthesia of the required skin, a hypodermic needle is inserted into the scar to break the fibrotic bands that attach the scar to the underlying skin. Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, collagen, gelatin matrix, and other fat implants are then injected to add volume and fullness at the site of depression.

  • Punch Elevation with PRP

Another procedure that is helpful in deep acne scars involves the use of a punch tool to elevate a depressed scar and even out the skin surface. Injecting platelet-rich plasma enables better wound healing.

Acne Scar Treatment Cost in Pune

The net cost of skin treatment procedures depends upon the following:

  • Type of procedure you’re undertaking
  • Machinery used in the process
  • Expertise required for successful completion of the procedure
  • severity of condition

Certain procedures like – scar revision, subcision (a procedure to treat depressed cutaneous scars), and fat filling are surgical procedures that require an OT setting and hence require additional investment.

The approximate cost for laser procedure varies between INR, 5000/- to INR 15,000/-, while for some surgical procedures, the pricing is defined based on the type of surgery and the area that requires treatment.
