Acne and Pimple Scar Treatment in Pune

Frequently Asked Questions


What are Acne and Pimple Scars?

Acne scars are formed after acne has resolved and leaves deep or shallow indentations. Usually, acne scars are caused because of picking and popping the acne or the blemishes but that’s the cause always. Even if an individual leaves the acne alone still acne scars appear. Pimples are inflamed acne and hence more WBC will be gathered at the particular spot because of more enzyme activity. So the WBC tries to repair the skin desperately and results in more damaging and leads to pimple scars.


What are the different types of Acne or Pimple Scar?

Atrophic or Depressed Scars are the most common scar. This scar sits below the surrounding skin. The cause for this scar is due to lack of enough collagen when the skin was healing after acne. There are 3 types of Atrophic scars and they are:

  1. Boxcar
  2. Ice pick
  3. Rolling

Hypertrophic or Raised Scars: usually this scar occurs after chest and back acne. They are characterized as the raised skin above the surface and the reason is more collagen while healing.

Dark Spots: the discoloration of the skin after the acne has cleared and they are in brown or dark red color. These kinds of spots disappear after a few months on their own.


What are the home remedies for Acne and Pimple Scars?

There are several home remedies and few of them are:

  1. Alpha hydroxy acids - this acid is found in almost all acne creams as the acid helps to remove dead skin and clogged pores and makes the scar less noticeable. 
  2. Lactic Acid - several peels, creams, gels, serums, and ointments contain lactic acid and also apple cider vinegar when diluted can act as toner containing natural lactic acid.
  3. Retinoids - these are usually used for atrophic or depressed scars. Topical retinoids act as smoothening out the scar and speed ups skin regeneration, reduce discoloration, etc hence improves the skin’s texture and make the scar less noticeable.
  4. Salicylic Acid - salicylic acid clears the pores, reduces inflammation and redness, and even exfoliate the skin. As it can irritate the skin, spot treatment is advised for sensitive skin.
  5. Sunscreen - it is necessary to apply sunscreen over the scars as the sun exposure can cause the scars to deepen and darken.


What are the medical treatments for Acne and Pimple Scars?

After trying out home remedies scars are present then one should consult a Dermatologist and the few procedures performed in clinics are:

  1. Dermabrasion 
  2. Chemical peels
  3. Laser resurfacing
  4. Fillers
  5. Microneedling injections 
  6. Minor in-office surgery


What is the upshot of Acne and Pimple Scars?

  1. As acne scars are frustrating there are several treatment options to minimize them. 
  2. However, most scars are permanent but the Dermatologist can guide the patient to the right treatment to make the acne scars unnoticeable. 
  3. The best way to avoid acne scars is to prevent them and they are less likely to happen as the breakouts are less. 
  4. The individual having acne or pimples shouldn’t pick, pop, or squeeze them hence the skin damage and irritation which leads to scars can be kept at bay.
