Remove acne scars

Today there are several methods to remedy acne scars. Of course, the best solution to prevent these scars from appearing is to be careful enough to prevent them from appearing. As with so many other aesthetic problems, prevention will always be your best ally in the fight against acne scars.

But what happens once scarring has occurred? Depending on the type of scar that has formed, it will be more advisable to use one treatment or another. The following is a brief overview of the most common types of acne scars:

  • Atrophic scars. These are those that are hidden in the skin. They are formed by the lack of regeneration of collagen and fibrinous tissue in the development of scarring. 
  • Hypertrophic scars. They are observable by an elevation of the complexion. Instead of an inflamed defect, the skin generates a worse quality tissue. 

Keloids. When the scars of the previous group continue to develop and extend to other parts of the epidermis, this process is called keloids. They are characterized by a purple or reddish color when they appear.

Best treatments to remove acne scars

Once scars have appeared as a result of an outbreak, there are some very effective treatments to treat the different types. Depending on your case, at Clínica ICA we will recommend one or another to achieve the best results. Some of the most effective are the following:

  • Dermabrasion. It is a very effective treatment for facial scars. At Clínica ICA we use a metal brush or a wheel to deeply exfoliate the top layer of the skin. 
  • Chemical peelings . In this treatment we use powerful acids that remove the top layer of the complexion with the goal of reducing deep scars. Some peels are not too strong and therefore can be applied at home. However, at ICA we use special blends that produce much more noticeable results. 
  • Laser scar removal . This acne scar removal treatment is based on the same principle as chemical peel. It uses a concentrated beam of light to remove the top layers of skin.
  • Micro-needling. This procedure uses a roller with needles that is passed over the surface of the scar. The needles pierce the skin, but do not go through it. As the skin heals, it produces collagen and recovers its original appearance.

Depending on your case, Clínica ICA will recommend one procedure or another so that you can achieve the best results.

    CO2 laser to remove acne scars

    Among the treatments that exist to remove scars, one of the most effective is the use of CO2 laser. This therapy is completely personalized, and is performed using a computer that allows you to parameterize all the data and choose the setting that best suits your personal situation.

    The CO2 laser treatment removes the upper layers of the skin so that you can regain a smooth and attractive complexion. At the end of the session the skin will be affected and a little red, but the effects will disappear in a few hours giving you great results.
