Frequently Asked Questions

Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are minimal invasive techniques, it provides textural benefit.

It uses chemical trichloroacetic acid over atrophied acne scars which leads to improvement in the depth of scars .Three to four sitting with three to four weeks interval is required to obtain optimum results.

This procedure produces multiple minute injuries which are superficial and which in turn leads to remodeling of skin, increased skin thickness, and enhanced hydration. It is primarily used for well- defined superficial scars with distinct borders or broad-based scars with indistinct borders. However, it is ineffective in treatment of deep scars, and demonstrates fair to moderate efficacy in moderate scars.

It Is the fibrous tissue (tethers) that binds down the scar, In subcision the fibrous tissue is released resulting in scar elevation.The induced dermal trauma results in clot formation and neocollagenesis with subsequent filling of the created space, which further enhances scar elevation.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a modality that utilizes patient’s own blood to correct acne scars. PRP contains a plethora of beneficial growth factors, which promote collagen and elastin regeneration. It is helpful in superficial acne scars. Infact microneedling shows better results when combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as it enhances the absorption of topical agents including PRP and the final result may only appear after 8–12 months.

Punch techniques such as punch excision, elevation, grafting, or float techniques are considered the criterion standard for punched-out scars up to 3–4 mm in width (deep boxcar and larger icepick scars).

  • PUNCH ELEVATION: Punch elevation is a technique in which the scar is punched down without being discarded. The punched scar is then elevated and sutured in place at a level slightly higher than the surrounding skin
  • PUNCH EXCISION: The scar is excised down with the help of a punch instrument that is slightly larger than the scar, and the defect is closed with sutures along relaxed skin tension lines. Punch excision and elevation is best suited for small (B 3 mm) acne scars.

It may be the only treatment for very deep irregular-shaped scars in difficult locations.
