Acne scars

The most distressing part of acne is not the acne itself but the spots and scars it leaves behind.

The acne scars can range from shallow crater - like scars to deep punched out scars.

As a dermatologist in Kochi, I have often seen that acne is considered as a normal teenage problem and is not treated on time. But this can lead to acne scars and acne scar treatment in Kochi has become a common procedure that many people are seeking help for.

Acne scars treatment depends on the types of acne scars.

Some common procedures that we do at Twacha Skin and Hair Clinic for acne scars are-

  1. Dermaroller - You can read more about dermarollers here. It is a basic procedure done by a dermatologist to treat acne scars.

  2. Microneedling Radiofrequency - You can read more about MNRF procedure here. It uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy to treat acne scars.

  3. PRP for acne scars - You can read more about this procedure here. It uses the power of platelet rich plasma or PRP to remodel acne scars. PRP for acne scars has become the most sought after treatment for acne scar treatment in Kochi.

  4. Subcision - You can read more about subcision procedure here. As a dermatologist in Kochi, i feel that not many dermatologists use this wonderful procedure for scar remodelling. This is more useful in tethered scars to loosen the fibrous bands that tether the scars.

  5. Threads - Threads have gained popularity as a minimally invasive procedure for acne scar treatment. Threads are made of absorbable material like Polydiaxanone (PDO) and are inserted strategically under the skin to stimulate collagen production.

As discussed above, acne scar treatment involves different modalities. At times, we use different modalities in a single patient to get the best results.
