What are acne scars?

Acne scars refer to reddish-brown pigmentation marks that remain on the skin after experiencing severe acne. The acne inflammation disturbs the healthy skin’s surface and causes acne blemishes even after the acne bursts or subdues.

Depending on the different types of acne, you may experience different types of acne scars, such as:

  1. Depressed scars: These are also known as pitted scars and are caused by the loss of tissue upon bursting the cyst, which results in an indentation in the outer surface of your skin.
  2. Ice pick scars: These are deep scars on your skin along with sharp borders and are best treated with laser therapy.
  3. Boxcar scars: These are wider scars with steeply angled sides, giving them a box-like appearance.
  4. Raised scars: These scars are formed when your body’s natural healing mechanism produces too much collagen to heal the wound, resulting in a scar raised above the skin’s surface.
  5. Rolling scars: These scars have a wavy, rolling appearance and are caused by damage to the collagen in the skin.
  6. Hypertrophic scars: These scars are raised and thick and occur when the body produces too much collagen during the healing process.
  7. Atrophic scars: These scars are depressed and occur when the body produces too little collagen during the healing process.
  8. Keloid scars: These scars are thick, raised, and extend beyond the boundaries of the original wound and can be difficult to treat.

Prof Dr Robert Hierner uses his three decades of in-field experience to examine and recommend the best acne scar treatment in Dubai.

The following basic principles have proven effective in acne scar treatment in Dubai:

 Early onset of adequate local and systemic acne treatment.

 Reduce/stop any residual acne disease activity (→ Dermatology)

→ Rule out any residual acne disease activity before starting invasive local scar treatment (reduction of infection risk).  

→ Lines of treatment (Subcesion, LASER, injections, Biostimulator, Peeling, Micro-needling, Plasma, Growth factors, Stem cell, fillers, fat injection, RF)

Some highly recommended acne scar treatments in Dubai

  • Laser resurfacing – is also known as laser peeling. It uses high laser beams to remove damaged skin cells and reveal new skin with reduced scars.
  • Chemical peel – Dermatologists use chemical peels to exfoliate skin possible and treat acne scars. Depending on the skin type and severity of scarring, the chemical peels may result in up to 70% acne scar reduction.
  • Microneedling – This technique uses needles with special serums to boost collagen from the inside skin. The micro-needling stimulation is best for scars with uneven texture and is cheaper than laser therapy.
  • Microdermabrasion – It is an advanced acne scar treatment in Dubai that uses a special machine to remove the top layer of skin and stimulate new skin growth for less scarring.
  • Subcision – A traditional, quick way to remove acne scars recommended for severe scarring, using a needle to destroy tissue that interferes with skin growth and causes scarring.
  • Fat Transfer – Like dermal fillers, fat is injected into and below the skin.In addition to the immediate volume effect, the body’s own fatty tissue also has a regenerative effect on the skin overlying because of the containing stem cells. After about 6 – 12 weeks, the skin thickens and there is an increase in elastic fibers (regeneration).
  • Dermal Fillers – The dermal fillers are injectable fillers containing hyaluronic acid. These fillers are injected into the skin to plump up the skin and immediately fade scars. Dermal fillers give temporary relief and need revision to maintain results.
