What Is Acne Scar Treatment?

Acne scar treatment involves various treatment methods aimed at reducing or eliminating the scars left on the skin after acne. These treatments are designed to improve the appearance of scars, correct skin tone, and rejuvenate skin texture. These techniques generally aim to renew skin cells, increase collagen production, and correct pigmentation on the skin. Treatment options are determined based on the individual's skin type, the severity of the scars, and personal preferences.

Why Do People Get Acne Scar Treatment?

There are several reasons to consider this treatment:

  • Skin Appearance: Acne scars can result in unpleasant skin blemishes and negatively impact an individual's confidence. Acne scar treatment can help achieve smoother and more even skin, boosting self-esteem.
  • Skin Health: Acne scars often form due to inflammation and damage to the skin. Untreated scars can compromise skin health and increase the risk of infection. Acne scar treatment works to improve skin health, promoting a healthier complexion.
  • Aesthetic Balance: Acne scars can disrupt the natural balance and harmony of facial or body features. By reducing the appearance of blemishes and scars, treatment restores aesthetic balance and enhances overall appearance.

What Are Some Acne Scar Treatment Methods In Turkey?

Some common treatment methods include:

  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are a treatment method that removes damaged tissue from the upper layer of the skin by exfoliating the skin's surface. This method can be effective in treating mild to moderate acne scars.
  • Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a method that gently exfoliates the skin's surface, removing dead skin cells and damaged tissue. It can help reduce the appearance of acne scars.
  • Laser Treatments: Laser treatments target damaged tissue on the skin's surface, increasing collagen production and promoting skin renewal. This treatment method can be effective in treating deep and noticeable acne scars.
  • Dermabrasion: Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure that aims to remove damaged tissue by scraping the skin's surface. It can be used to treat deep and noticeable acne scars but is a more invasive procedure.
  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are a treatment option that fills in voids under the skin, improving the appearance of acne scars. Fillers such as hyaluronic acid can be used.
  • Morpheus8 (Golden Needle): It is a medical aesthetic device used for skin rejuvenation and skin renewal purposes. Also known as the "Golden Needle," this method combines radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling technology to target the deeper layers of the skin. Micro-needles penetrate the skin's depths in a controlled manner along with radiofrequency energy. This process increases collagen production, enhances skin firmness, reduces wrinkles, improves skin tone, and overall renews skin texture. Morpheus8 is an effective option for treating various skin problems such as skin renewal and skin tightening.
  • Subincision: In acne treatment, "subincision" is a procedure used to reduce acne scars. In this method, the fibrous tissue beneath the skin is cut to correct the depressions on the skin surface. Subincision is usually performed under local anesthesia and is a surgical procedure carried out by dermatologists or plastic surgeons. This procedure can be effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, but the results may vary depending on the individual's skin type and the depth of the scars.
