Understanding Acne Scars

Acne scars come in various forms, each leaving its distinct mark on the skin. At HPI Scar Revision, we recognize the emotional and physical impact these scars can have and offer specialized treatments to address them. Here are the common types of acne scars we treat:

  • Atrophic Scars: These are the most common types of acne scars and appear as sunken or pitted areas on the skin. They include:
  • Ice Pick Scars: Deep, narrow scars that extend into the dermis, creating a small, but noticeable, puncture in the skin.
  • Boxcar Scars: Broad, rectangular depressions with sharp edges that give the skin a pitted appearance.
  • Rolling Scars: Wave-like depressions that give the skin an uneven, wavy texture.
  • Hypertrophic and Keloid Scars: These are raised, thickened scars that develop when the body produces excess collagen during the healing process. While hypertrophic scars stay within the original wound’s boundaries, keloid scars can grow beyond them, creating larger, more pronounced raised areas.
  • Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH): Although not a true scar, PIH appears as dark spots left on the skin after acne has healed. It can be particularly frustrating as it adds to the uneven tone and texture of the skin.

Our Comprehensive Non-Surgical Treatment Options

At HPI Scar Revision, we offer a variety of advanced, non-invasive treatments tailored to your specific scar type. Our expert clinicians have extensive experience in scar removal and will create a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs. Our treatment options include:

  1. Chemical Peels: A chemical solution is applied to your skin to exfoliate the upper layers. Chemical peels are ideal for mild scars, usually on the face & neck.
  2. Dermaplaning: A special razor is used to shave away the upper layers of your skin, improving the appearance of acne scars.
  3. Microneedling: A device creates microscopic punctures in your skin, encouraging collagen production and remodeling to improve scar appearance.
  4. Exosome Therapy: During the microneedling process, smart growth factors rejuvenate the skin by harnessing regenerative properties. This natural treatment accelerates the healing process and maximizes results, promoting healthier, revitalized skin.
  5. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): Using your body’s own blood platelets, PRP injections can enhance the healing process naturally to improve the appearance of scars.
