How long did it take for your acne scars to fade?

Jun 11, 2021

Hello Sir, Thank you for your valuable inquiry. As you have mentioned, you have acne scars & hyperpigmentation issues. As we have understood, you want to get rid of your problem in 1 or 2 treatments. Sorry to tell you sir, but it seems difficult as acne scar is a chronic skin condition, formed after healing of old acne lesions. This is a fibrous scar tissue which causes permanent structural damage to the skin.

Treatment of acne scar lies in the formation of new collagen tissue below the scar tissue, which helps in the upliftment of scar & thus reduces the depth of the scar. It helps to improve the appearance of a scar.

In order to guide you for your acne scar treatment, a doctor has to analyze your type of scar as there are multiple types of scars like ice pick scar, box scar, rolling scar, hypertrophic scar. Some patient has the same type of scars on all face, but some may have multiple types of scars on the face. In order to improve your scars to a best possible level, doctors have to combine multiple treatment modalities as per individual scar type. During scar treatment, old collagen bands are broken down with laser energy & new collagen is formed gradually replacing old collagen bands. This process is very gradual. It will take around 4 to 5 months to start seeing improvement after treatment.

However, your acne pigmentation can be improved little faster as compared to your acne scars. For treating your post acne pigmentation, Chemical peelsQ switched 1064 Nd Yag lasers & light therapies, oral & topical medications can be used to reduce your pigmentation faster.

We request you to consult a board-certified dermatologist, who can guide you best after examination of your skin & scar problem & as per your level of expectation.
