Acne can be quite painful and embarrassing when it is severe. Most teenagers who go through puberty face this skin issue that is caused due to hormonal imbalances. Acne can range from manageable to debilitating. More often than not, it is only associated with one’s teenage years however, adult acne is also quite prevalent.

Adult acne occurs as a result of the inflammation of the hair follicles and blockage of the pores by oil and dead skin cells. The lesions caused by the follicles cause pimples.

Acne Scars Treatment

Many women also experience acne during the first and second trimesters of their pregnancy. In some cases, the outbreak might be acute.

The scars left behind by acne can last a lifetime if it is left untreated.

Scar revision is the process of collagen remodeling of the skin to lift up the scars. This can be done using the process of laser scar removal, by skin polishing or by administering chemical peels to the affected area.

As if acne itself wasn’t enough, it can also cause scarring! The bad news is that they will not fade on their own, the good news is that they can be treated!

Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks

Treatments Available

Micro-needling includes the insertion of tiny, painless needles into the skin through punctures to disturb the skin. This results in the opening up of the skin to better absorb serums and creams that can facilitate the removal of acne scars. It causes the skin to have a healing response by allowing itself to be nourished by acne creams.

Subscision or subcutaneous incision-less surgery is a simple surgical procedure that constitutes of inserting a small needle into the scarred tissue to make subcutaneous cuts and repair the tissue underneath.

It is effective to remove acne scarsthat have deep depressions. This procedure can be combined with repeated laser treatments for effective acne scar removal.


1. What is Subcision for acne scars?

  • Subcision is an acne scar treatment that works on only scars that are depressed; it addresses the cause of the skin depression and corrects it in order to reduce the appearance of the scarring. The procedure is relatively simple. Individual scars are treated with a tiny hypodermic needle that is inserted into the skin and moved around in a fanning pattern. This effectively cuts the fibrotic scar tissue that tethers the scar to the underlying tissue. Once the tissue is cut, that layer of your skin will no longer be pulled downward, thereby treating the depressed shape of the scar.

2. Is it effective at treating acne scars?

  • It is very effective for treating depressed acne scars.

3. What to expect during the procedure?

  • Subcision is a generally performed in a clinic. Before starting the procedure, the area around your scar will be cleaned. They will also apply a local anesthetic to freeze and numb your skin, so you won’t feel pain during the procedure. A needle is inserted horizontally into your skin, beneath the scar. It is gently moved from side to side under the scar to help release the scar from the underlying tissue. You may notice a soft snapping sound as your skin fibers are broken. This process may be repeated depending on the size and shape of the scar.

4. How long does it take to heal?

  • The pain, swelling, and bruising typically takes 1 to 2 weeks to heal. You will be prescribed a topical healing cream to help with the healing process. The number of treatment sessions you’ll need will depend on the severity of the scar, as well as your body’s ability to form scar tissue. It may take several months for the scar to become less visible.

5. What else can be done along with subcision to heal acne scars?

  • Micro-needling- This procedure uses tiny needles to stimulate the production of collagen.
  • Laser treatment- involves the use of lasers to heal scarring and stimulate collagen.
  • Chemical peels- Chemical peels improve scarring by exfoliating the upper layer of skin.

The topical application of a chemical peel on one’s acne scars has been proven to be effective in acne scar treatment. They also help to correct uneven skin tones, smoothening out wrinkles and decrease hyperpigmentation.

The procedure includes the removal of the upper layer of dead skin cells to reveal lower layers that are new and improved.

Microdermabrasion includes exfoliating the skin to improve the texture and quality. In addition to removing acne scars, Microdermabrasion also helps to smoothen out wrinkles upon undergoing a series of treatments.

However, Microdermabrasion is not recommended if you have cystic acne scars.


The primary healing of acne scars is reliant on repeated and continuous laser treatment. It is imperative to go in for the sessions as advised by the dermatologist to see lasting and evident results.

Post-procedure care is very important when it comes to acne scar removal. It is vital to ensure that there is no infection that could turn leads to more scars on the skin.

If pimples do reoccur, it is important not to pop them yourself or keep caressing it repeatedly. This could result in more acne scars.
