As you have mentioned you have acne scars on your face since 2 to 3 years. You can definitely get the best possible results for your scars when you go with recently advanced treatments for scars. Dermaroller is also a good treatment that is being used for treating acne scars but it has some limitations. It can not treat deep scars on your skin. As needle depth cannot be adjusted in order to treat deep scars on the face. Deep scars are usually 2 to 2.5 mm deep, this depth cannot be effectively targeted by Dermaroller & epidermal damage is also more in Dermaroller treatment, which involves more downtime & more chance of getting pigmentation.
In order to treat your scars more efficiently, a Dermatologist has to understand your type of scars. There are various types of scars such as –
Ice pick scars are the remains of a severe acne lesion or outbreak. Treatment options include punch excision, punch grafting, Microneedling, chemical peels, etc.
Rolling scars form pits in the skin with sloped sides. They appear more commonly in thicker skin areas like the cheek area. Common treatment options include surgery, dermal fillers, chemical peels, fat subcision, chemical reconstruction, and laser therapy.
Many people ask us how to remove boxcar scars? Boxcar scars occur from an acne lesion. Some possible treatments include fillers, chemical peels, laser therapy, chemical peels, subcision, and punch excision.
These are thick, raised scars that are an unusual response to wound healing. They commonly appear in taut skin areas like burns, skin trauma, or surgical incisions. Clinical treatments include laser therapy, steroid injections, and cryotherapy removal.
One patient can have a few rolling scars, a few ice pick scars, few box scars at the same time on the face, along with this they may have hypertrophic scars on the nose & chin areas also. In order to treat these types more efficiently, multiple treatment modalities can be combined in the same session to give better results than a single treatment modality.
