Get Rid of Textured Skin with Acne Scar Treatment @Vejthani Hospital
- Fotona Laser: This treatment method is a non-surgical treatment for acne scars. The dermatologist will consider using the Fotona Laser on the acne scars that have noticeable scar edges (Ice pick scars) to make the acne scars less noticeable. For an effective outcome, the patients are recommended to receive the treatment 3 – 5 times every month. After the treatment, the patients will have redness and a thin layer of scabs which will be gone within 5 -7 days.
- Punch excision: This treatment method is a surgical treatment that is suitable for the deep ice pick scar and boxcar scar (smaller than 3.5 mm.) types of acne scar. During the procedure, the dermatologist or plastic surgeon will create a small cut on the acne scar and then the incision will be closed with a small stitch. Basically, the stitch can be taken off within 5 – 7 days after the surgery. The appearance of the acne scar will be improved within 1 week. Only 1 appointment for punch excision and the acne scar will be surgically removed.
- Subcision: This treatment method is a minor surgical treatment for the rolling scar type of acne scar or depressed bound down scars (e.g. the scars due to chickenpox). During the procedure, the dermatologist will insert a special hypodermic needle into the skin surface, and then the needle is used to break the fibrotic strands that are tethering the scar in order to stimulate collagen reproduction which will improve the appearance of the acne scar. After the treatment, the patient might have a few bruises on the affected area but the bruises will be gone within 1 week and there will be no incision scar on the skin.
