Types of Acne Scars and the Effective Treatments Available

 

Most people who scar after the acne clears see soft, saucer-like depressions or pits on their skin. Sometimes the skin loses its underlying support and develops a wavy texture. As we age, these scars often become even more noticeable. The good news is that no one has to live with these scars.

3 Types of Depressed Acne Scars

1.Rolling acne scars or Soft Contoured scars

These scars cause a wavy texture in the skin.

2. Boxcar acne scars

Often looking like large pores, boxcar scars cause boxlike walls to form on the skin.

3. Icepick acne scars

When these scars form, it looks like a tiny ice pick punctured the skin. Icepick scars leave deep pits with narrow openings.

I've been battling with my acne outbreaks since high school and I have had many acne scars and they were just so deep that it bruised my ego and had a disturbed body image. I've went to a number of Dermatology Clinics and had several procedures done on my face to reduce acne appearance and also to remedy my acne scars (which is my main problem). However, those treatments were not satisfactory as I hoped it would be. So I decided to seek out a new dermatologist and undergo Collagen Induction Therapy/Dermaroller. I found out about Lozano Dermatology Skin Wellness Clinic and I read the clinic profile and the clients' comments and I was convinced of trying it out. I'm so glad I went to this clinic, it simply is the BEST there is! Dra. Lozano-Veroy, who calls me Ken, is so easy to get along with. She has mastered her craft and she is blessed with gentle hands where her touch is most magical and produces AMAZING results! The first time we met, she was so friendly and started out with the "get-to-know" conversation, then she asked me of my concern, and after which she addressed my problem with an intelligent and easy to comprehend explanation. She offered me treatment options, the advantages of those options, and the potential risks associated. After all that, I opted to undergo CIT/Dermaroller treatment. After having 4 sessions of CIT, I could already see the improvement -- my scar has almost leveled, my skin and large pores are now smooth and refined respectively. It was like I was touched by an angel! IF YOU VALUE YOUR MONEY and YOU WANT AMAZING RESULTS, this is the RIGHT PLACE for you!


We are so humbled by your kind words. Thank you.
