Acne Scar Treatment In Delhi- Dr. Syed Hussain

Acne scars form as a result of inflammation of acne blemishes. Scars can take a long time to fade as they are deep and tenacious in many circumstances. In such cases, medical treatment of scars is critical. Under the supervision of Dr. Syed Nazim Hussain, a top dermatologist in Delhi, the Royal Lush Skin, Hair & Laser Clinic offers a variety of innovative acne scar treatment in Delhi for persistent and stubborn acne scars.

Acne is caused due to multiple factors. Overproduction of sebum which is a normal oil present in the skin is one. This will increase under the influence of hormones when coupled with the insufficient shedding of dead skin cells that plugs the hair follicles. The plugged follicle can become inflamed and have increased growth of Propionibacterium acnes (normal skin bacteria).

When acne becomes chronic in nature it results in scarring which can appear to be depressions in the skin or hyperpigmentation, so minimizing the breakouts is important. Acne is disturbing and a very common skin disease which makes a person feel unhappy due to their appearance. Most people with spots are facing a medical condition called acne vulgaris.

What is acne and how do scars develop?

Acne develops when your hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Although it can affect anyone at any age, acne is most prevalent in teenagers.

What does your acne say about you?

  • The forehead acne, also known as pomade acne, that develops around the hairline and temples may result from using cosmetic products.
  • Acne on the side of the nose indicates a hormonal imbalance.
  • Acne on the nose itself indicates a digestive issue.

As a side effect of acne, scarring can occasionally appear.

What are the symptoms of acne scars?

  • Tiny, deep punctures in your skin's surface
  • Uneven skin texture - rolling and bumpy
  • Circular or oval craters or depressions

Acne scar treatments include:

  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Dermabrasion.
  • Chemical peeling.
  • Skin pricking.
  • Surgery.
  • Botulinum toxin treatment

Acne scar treatment in Delhi is readily available with Dr Syed.

Causes of Acne

Acne can be a very disturbing occurrence. In most conditions, acne results from bacterial infection by Propionibacterium acnes. In such cases, it is a combination of two factors- the presence of bacteria and an opportune environment for it to thrive on.

The causes of acne include:

  • The surge of testosterone during puberty
  • Certain steroid medications may trigger the development of acne
  • Environmental humidity
  • Excessive sebum production by the sebaceous glands in the skin
  • Lack of sufficient water consumption
  • Dandruff
  • Clogging of the hair follicles by dead cells and accumulated dirt
  • Inflammation

It is not entirely possible to control the bacteria causing acne, but we can take steps to hamper our skin from hosting it. Picking on acne can leave long-term scars that may cause concern as we age. Acne scar treatment in Delhi is available with Dr. Syed Nazim Hussain.

Diagnosis of acne

Your dermatologist will be able to make the diagnosis and confirm that it's acne before proceeding with the right treatment.

The diagnosis of acne is based on :

  1. Taking a detailed medical history
  2. Physical examination that includes
    • Location of acne
    • Nature of the lesion
    • Contents of the lesion
    • Pattern of distribution
  3. Differentiating it from other skin conditions that may appear similar
  4. Determining if the condition is acne scarring or acne

There is a surge of white blood cells to heal the area whenever acne occurs. These surplus white blood cells also may transform into scars. With time, we age and lose collagen from the skin. This makes the scars more prominent.

Today, many treatments are available for acne scars that will give you an even skin tone. The type of treatments will depend upon the type, nature, and duration of the acne scar. Dr. Syed Nazim Hussain offers acne scar treatment in Delhi along with a host of other dermatological services.

Acne Scar Treatment In Delhi:

  • Topical treatments

The first line of acne scar treatment in Delhi includes prescribing topical medications. These topical treatments are curated to smoothen the skin surface and work on minor blemishes or wounds. It may take a lot of time for an acne scar to disappear on its own, and in some cases not disappear at all. Therefore, one can use topical treatments, ointments, and gels that help to reduce the appearance of acne scars. Usually, these topical ointments or gels contain salicylic acid, retinoids, AHAs, and niacinamide that aid in healing acne scars. Based on your skin type, Dr. Syed will prescribe a suitable topical treatment for you.

  • Dermabrasion

In this method, the uppermost layer of the skin called the epidermis is removed with the aid of a rotating device. It is a type of skin resurfacing method that requires anesthesia. The skin post-dermabrasion is fresh, scar-less, and smooth.

  • Laser treatment

With advances in medical research and technology, laser therapy has emerged as one of the most effective acne scar treatment in Delhi. It works by applying heat to the skin at a deeper level, allowing the skin to renew on its own. It is extremely effective on acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines, revealing even, scar-free skin.

  • Punch technique

Punch technique as the name suggests is a technique where the scarred skin tissue is surgically cut and removed after which new, scar-less skin is plugged in place of the removed skin. The plugged-in new skin is usually taken from the patient's body itself. It may be taken from the back of the ears. The transplant is secured using soluble sutures or skin glue.

  • Steroid injections

Steroid injections are primarily used to treat scars that protrude from the skin, such as keloids or hypertrophic scars. The doctor may use steroid injections alone or in conjunction with other treatments.

  • Subcision

In Subcision, a hypodermic needle is inserted in the skin below the scar. The needle is gently maneuvered to practically break the skin fibers so that the scarred tissue can be lifted off. This treatment is often chosen for depressed scars. Subcision also promotes collagen formation and improves the overall appearance of the skin. Subcision is frequently used with a growth factor to speed up the healing process. This procedure is performed under anesthetic.

  • TCA cross

The chemical reconstruction of skin scars (CROSS), using Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) Trichloroacetic Acid Chemical Reconstruction of Skin Scars (TCA CROSS) is a chemical peel that is highly effective for atrophic and ice pick scars. The chemical trichloroacetic acid is applied in high concentration to the scars. Post-application, a chemical reaction takes place that results in inflamed skin which eventually promotes collagen production. These collagen fibers assist in minimizing the scars and making them less visible.

  • MNRF

In micro-needling, tiny needles are directly inserted into the skin to create microscopic channels that induce collagen and elastin production. Both collagen and elastin are crucial skin proteins that help in scar healing. When these needles produce radiofrequency it is termed as microneedling RF or MNRF. MNRF is a modification of micro-needling and is preferred more as the radio waves produced penetrate deeper into the skin causing minimal damage to the epidermis (upper skin layer). With MNRF, the healing period is quick and the results are scar-free, smooth, and supple skin.

  • Light therapy

Light therapy is a non-invasive treatment method that employs a powerful yet mild beam of light to cure scars without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. There are various kinds of light therapies such as blue light therapy, red light therapy, etc. certain acne is caused by bacteria and this light therapy helps in killing those bacteria thereby inhibiting the formation of newer acne and scars.

  • Fractional CO₂ laser

Fractional co2 lasers continue to dominate the dermatology sector. Carbon dioxide lasers cause less tissue damage than traditional lasers and provide a quick recovery period. In this technique the laser emits light at 10600 nm, that is, thousands of microscopic zones are created in the skin that treat scars layer by layer without damaging the surrounding skin. Fractional carbon dioxide lasers are the most popular and effective ones.

Types of Acne Scars:

While all scars may look similar to regular eyes, Dr. Syed distinguishes the scars and curates a tailored acne scar treatment in Delhi based on the type of scar the patient has. Following are the types of acne scars:

  • Atrophic or depressed scars

Atrophic scars are a consequence of severe cystic acne. They appear flat or as the name suggests, depressed in nature and are usually formed on the epidermis. Atrophic scars are further classified into three types:

  • Boxcar scars

These types of scars have well-defined prominent borders and they appear box-like. The cheekbones and the jaw, where the skin is usually thicker, is the primary and most common region where boxcar scars appear.

  • Ice pick scars

Ice pick scars are much smaller and narrower and often project outwards from the skin’s surface. These scars are most commonly seen on the cheeks.

  • Rolling scars

The major cause of uneven skin texture. Rolling scars have sloping borders and may vary in depth.

  • Hypertrophic scars & Keloid scars

In contrast to atrophic scars, hypertrophic and keloid scars appear as elevated lumps of scar tissue where the acne previously existed. This occurs when scar tissue accumulates, possibly from earlier acne patches. The size of hypertrophic scars is usually the same as the size of the pimples that induced them, whereas the size of a keloid scar is larger than the acne and extends beyond that area. Both types of scars are more prominently seen on the jaw, chest, back, and shoulders.

Tips to avoid acne scars

Some important tips to prevent acne scars include:

  • Do not pick on your pimples

Pimples are always urging to pick on- but it does only more harm than good. A pimple involves an inflammatory phase, and handling it unnecessarily only renders it more susceptible to active progression. Picking on a pimple causes micro-tears in the skin, makes the bacteria and pus inside delve deeper, and may leave you with pits later on.
Soothing an active pimple with an ice cube for about 30 seconds will lessen the irritation and the impulse to pop it. This saves a lot of damage to the skin and brings down the eruption to an extent.

  • Keep the area clean

On top of the clogged oil and dirt collected in the area of the breakout, allowing dust and grime to accumulate only makes it worse. Always keep the area clean by sanitizing well. Medicated solutions containing hydrogen peroxide are a good choice.
Even if you have popped a pimple already, advice on how to take care of the skin as well as acne scar treatment in Delhi is available with Dr. Syed. Keeping the area cleansed will prevent further damage and reduce your chances of scarring.

  • Reduce inflammation and soothe your skin

The inflammatory changes involved in acne are responsible for further scarring. Therefore treat your skin gently and use products that soothe your skin rather than irritate or be abrasive.

FAQs for Acne Scar treatment

Acne is caused by two factors:

Male hormones
If either of your parents had acne then there is a chance that you will as well. Acne does tend to run in families although it is by no means a given. In other words, it isn’t automatic that you will develop acne.

Hormones such as testosterone are responsible for the development of acne. This is especially noticeable during puberty when hormone levels rise which causes an array of changes –both mental and physical. One of these is increased sebum production from the sebaceous glands. These glands are located underneath the skin, near the hair follicles and help to lubricate these and the skin in general. It does this by secreting a type of oil called sebum.

But what happens during puberty is that increased hormone levels cause an excess of sebum to be produced which then blocks the skin pores and leads to acne. Find out more about this in our about acne section of this guide.
