Types of acne scars Acne scars are most commonly visible on the face. There are four type of scarring. Box car scars, icepick scars and rolling scars are all concave in appearance. Hypertrophic scars are convex and may resemble a small, flat overgrowth of skin tissue.
 

Icepick scars are usually the deepest type of acne scar, resembling a narrow V-shaped channel. Box car scars tend to be more shallow but generally wider. Rolling scars are chacterised by a shallow rounded pitting on the surface.

 
 

Treatments for acne scars Several medical treatments are available for acne scars. Each has its own merits and also limitations too. For shallow scarring such as box car scars and rolling scars a course of collagen induction therapy, commonly known as medical micro needling is effective. This treatment encourages collagen regeneration which in turn aids in the development of new skin cells.

 
For deeper icepick scars micro needling is less likely to be effective. Here we would recommend filling the pitted area by way of an advanced dermal filler procedure. Hypertrophic acne scars have been treated successfully, to varying degrees with both micro needling and laser skin treatments.
 
How will the results look? Acne scars exhibit various characteristics. Some of the more shallow scars are often the most discoloured whereas deeper scars tend to be less so.
 
Box car scars and rolling scars treated by micro needling (collagen regeneration) will look softer and visibly less noticeable. In most cases any discolouration can be eradicated to blend with the skin’s natural tone. Deeper icepick scars or pitting are left visibly softer after a single treatment. For more severe scarring it may be necessary for a course of 2 or 3 treatments. In most cases patients with icepick scars are highly satisfied with the results from 2 or 3 treatments, even with more severe pitting and scarring.

Skin conditions we treat

 
Advanced medical treatments
Whether a micro needling or dermal filler treatment is given both stimulate collagen growth beneath the skin’s surface resulting in the formation of healthy new skin cells.
 
Collagen induction – beauty by simplicity The beauty of collagen induction is that it requires no injectable substances. The active ingredient is the body’s own collagen. Micro needling provides all the stimulus that is required to regenerate healthy new skin cells.

Treatment recommendations

Acne scars are best treated through a course of treatments, taken at 2 to 6 week intervals. The actual number of treatment sessions required are dependent on the type and severity of scarring, and various other factors. We discuss all treatment options with clients as part of a wider consultation.
