Understanding Acne Scars: Causes and Types

Acne scars result from inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. When these blemishes rupture, they cause the collagen, a skin protein, to become damaged. As the skin heals, sometimes it produces too much collagen, which forms a raised scar, or too little, leading to a depressed scar.Types of Acne Scars:

  1. Boxcar Scars: Wide, U-shaped scars that have sharp edges. They can be shallow or deep. The shallower they are, the better they respond to skin resurfacing treatments.
  2. Rolling Scars: Broad depressions with a sloping edge. They arise when fibrous bands between the skin and tissue pull the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, down.
  3. Ice Pick Scars: Deep, narrow scars (like a large pore) extending into the dermis. They develop when an inflamed cyst leaves a small scar that goes deeper into the skin.
  4. Keloid Scars: Raised scars that go beyond the boundary of the initial injury. They result from an aggressive healing and often appear on the chest and back.
  5. Macular acne scarring: Not true scars, but dark spots left after a pimple has healed. These can fade over time or with the help of certain treatments.

Understanding the cause and type of your acne scar is the first step towards effective treatment. By identifying the nature of the scar, you can better target and reduce its appearance.

Options of Acne Scars Treatment Edmonton

At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton, we offer a range of scar treatments tailored to your needs. Here’s a simple breakdown of our treatments:

  1. Fractional Laser Resurfacing: Think of this as a tiny magic wand! It sends out laser beams that gently touch the skin, causing very small injuries. This helps make more collagen, a skin-building protein, to improve how your skin feels and looks. This treatment is good for most scar types.
  2. Microneedling: This method uses a tool with many tiny needles. When it touches the skin, it boosts collagen and helps smooth out the skin’s look. It’s a top pick for treating both raised and sunken scars.
  3. Subcision: Got deep, dented scars? This might be the one for you. We use a needle to cut the tight bands and scar tissue below the skin. This helps raise the scar to the skin’s level, making it blend in better.
  4. Filler Injections: We use dermal fillers like Bellafill or natural substances found in the skin, like hyaluronic acid. By injecting them under the scar, we can help raise and smooth it out to match the rest of your skin.
  5. Chemical Peels: This is like giving your skin a fresh start. Special ingredients like salicylic acid are used to peel away the top layer of skin. This helps fade scars and gives your skin a brighter look.

Getting Ready for Acne Scars Treatment and Taking Care After

At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton, we want to help you get the best results from your treatment. Here’s a simple guide to help you get ready for your treatment and care for your skin after.

Before Your Treatment

First, schedule a visit to meet our dedicated skin team. After examining your scars, they’ll guide you on the most effective treatment. Next, it’s essential to prep your skin. About a week before your scheduled treatment, opt for clean and straightforward skincare products.

Steer clear of any that cause redness or irritation. Additionally, make a conscious effort to stay out of the sun. Tanning can affect the treatment results. If outdoor activities are unavoidable, always apply sunscreen. Lastly, be open with us about any medications you’re on, especially those related to skin care. There might be a need to pause some medications temporarily.

After Your Treatment

After your treatment, it’s crucial to be kind to your skin. You might notice some sensitivity, so choose a gentle face wash and always pat — never rub — your skin dry. To maintain its suppleness, regularly moisturize with a lotion or cream. If you’re unsure which products to use, we’re here to guide you. Meanwhile, prioritize sun safety.

Minimize direct sun exposure, and when you’re outside, remember to wear a hat and apply sunscreen diligently. Furthermore, it’s essential to keep any follow-up appointments we schedule; it allows us to monitor your skin’s progress and ensure optimal results. On a final note, give your skin a breather from cosmetics. It’s best to avoid makeup for at least a day post-treatment, ensuring your skin heals without hindrance.
