Rolling Scars Treatment at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton

Acne is a common skin concern, but once it’s gone, sometimes it leaves a reminder: scars. Among the types of acne scars, rolling scars are particularly noticeable due to their wave-like appearance on the skin. Let’s dive into understanding and treating these unique scars.

Infograph about acne scar types

Rolling scars are shallow, wide depressions in the skin that have rounded, sloping edges. This gives the skin a wavy, uneven texture. They are often the result of longer-term inflammatory acne, and their unique appearance is caused by bands of scar tissue that develop between the skin and the subcutaneous tissue beneath.

At Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre in Edmonton, we use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to address and reduce the appearance of these scars and all other acne scars. Our team of professionals understands the intricacies of skin textures and how to rejuvenate them effectively.

Treatments Available for Rolling Scars

  1. Microneedling: This method stimulates the skin to produce more collagen, gradually filling the depressions of these scars over multiple sessions.
  2. Laser Resurfacing: By removing the outermost layer of skin, our lasers encourage the growth of smoother skin in its place.
  3. Dermal Fillers: For immediate results, fillers can be injected under the scar to raise the depression to the level of the surrounding skin.


Care and Maintenance

Post-treatment, it’s vital to protect your skin from the sun and keep it moisturized. This not only helps in healing but also enhances the results of the treatment.

Boxcar Scars

Boxcar scars are a type of atrophic scar characterized by broad, rectangular depressions with steep, defined edges. These scars are typically caused by inflammatory acne, chickenpox, or other skin injuries that result in a loss of collagen in the affected area. Boxcar scars can vary in depth, but they’re distinguished by their sharp edges unlike other types of atrophic scars.
