What is Acne?
Acne is most commonly seen in teenagers and young adults, but it may affect people of all ages. Our skin is made up of tiny little hair follicles that are like open pores. Acne is caused when oil particles, dead skin cells, and bacteria clog up these pores. The most common forms of acne are pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads.
While the acne might go away in a few days or weeks, the scars it leaves behind can be long-term. Acne scars occur as part of the natural healing process, but these scars might become permanent if the skin has uneven tissue.
Types of Acne Scars:
- Rolling scars
- Boxcar scars
- Hypertrophic scars
- Ice pick or deep acne scars
- Macular erythematous scars

Effective Acne Scar Treatment Options
Fractional CO2 Laser
Fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. The laser creates (with its microbeams) mini wounds, and allows the body to naturally heal them, producing collagen and epithelium to aid the process. This new technology replicates the results without the discomfort or downtime caused by any common and regular methods.
What happens then?
As your skin heals naturally, the new layer will appear much more radiant and healthy, with the unsightly acne marks and fine lines either no longer visible or markedly reduced on your skin.
Our aestheticians at Saraswat Hospital Agra work tirelessly to provide acne scar removal for different types of scars in varied machine settings to derive maximum benefit.
The CO2 laser goes slightly deeper and has a particular way of shrinking collagen than the Fractional CO2 laser. The CO2 is best for patients who are in their late 40s to 70s with moderate to deep wrinkles/sun damage, or with moderate to severe acne scarring when treated by an expert at proper settings. But as the CO2 goes deeper, there can be more “downtime” than the same with the Fractional CO2 Laser.
Subsicion with Dermarollers /Dermapen
This one is a time-tested acne scar treatment technique. When the acne is in the process of eruption, they form fibrous bands between their bases and the dermal tissue. These fibrous bands are broken by the 18 gauge needle used to break the bands during subsicion by the sweeping movements of the needle.
The haematoma formed during the process serves elevation to the base of the acne scar and eventually forms the fibrous tissue underneath which permanently shallow the pits.
Dermarollers or Dermapens create numerous microscopic holes in the skin (up to 256 per cm2) which when the skin tries to heal with newly made components and various growth factors rejuvenates the rest of the skin too.
CROSS (Chemical Reconstruction of skin scars) for ice pick acne scars can be done efficiently. This is also a time-tested method using TCA 100% for the same.
Who is an eligible candidate?
Anyone above the age of 18 is eligible for acne scar removal treatment. But it is not advisable for pregnant and lactating women.
Is laser treatment on acne scars effective?
Using laser beams is a popular acne scar treatment method. It causes tiny adhesions on your skin, and collagen is produced during the natural healing process. As the new layer of skin forms, the scars visibly lighten and it also improves your skin texture.
What is the cost of acne scar removal treatment?
The cost for acne scar removal varies for each patient depending on several factors. The cost of treatment is influenced by the severity of one’s skin condition, the size of treatment area, specific skin type and scar type, the type of treatment procedure used, and the number of sessions needed.
Are there any side-effects of acne scar treatment?
Some patients may experience certain discomforts like mild redness, temporary swelling, and skin peeling after the session. However, these side-effects are not of serious concern and do not cause any significant damage.
