Best Acne Scars Treatment in Delhi
Acne treatment can be a rewarding experience, but the scars left behind can be just as damaging to the sufferer’s self-esteem as the spots themselves. If you have a lot of breakouts, you know that not all bumps are the same. Some appear to vanish with a simple pimple patch, while others remain on your face for weeks on end, leaving behind scars that refuse to fade.
Here’s how we at ISYA can help you in banishing every kind of pesky post-pimple scar.
Acne scars are marks or depressions that remain on the skin after acne has healed. They occur when an inflamed acne lesion causes a disruption in the skin’s collagen structure, the protein that helps keep skin smooth and firm. When acne heals, the body might produce too much collagen or too little, which creates a scar.
There are several types of acne scars:
- Ice pick scars: These are deep, very narrow scars that extend into the dermis. They look as if the skin has been punctured with a sharp object, hence the name “ice pick”.
- Boxcar scars: Boxcar scars are round or oval depressions, or craters, in the skin. They can be superficial or deep, and are wider than ice pick scars.
- Rolling scars: These type of scars are caused by damage under the skin. They give the skin a wave-like appearance. They tend to be wide and shallow.
- Hypertrophic scars: These are raised and lumpy scars that sit above the surface of the skin. They’re most commonly found on the chest and back, but can also appear on the neck and face.
- Keloid scars: Keloid scars are similar to the hypertrophic scars but are typically darker and thicker than the original acne spot. They can continue to grow even after the acne has healed.
