Scars result in both changes in the texture and the color of the skin which include thick & raised or thin & indented skin. Various color changes may occur most commonly either hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation and less commonly redness. Acne scars may be particularly difficult to treat but some general measures may be helpful.
Refraining from picking, using preventative skincare and following good hygiene will help to prevent or minimize scar tissue. Depending on the type and depth of the scars a number of different treatment options are available including Microdermabrasion, Chemical peels, Laser Resurfacing and injecting dermal fillers for “ice pick” type scars.
