WELCOME TO Dr. Showrya Gadde Acne Scar Revision

Understanding Acne Scars:
Acne scars are the aftermath of battles fought on your skin. They manifest as pits or depressions left behind once acne has run its course. These scars are the result of abnormal collagen production that occurs as your skin tries to heal after an acne breakout. In some cases, you might also encounter marks due to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

These scars tend to be resilient, often refusing to fade away on their own. That's where professional intervention becomes essential.

Under the expertise of Dr. Showrya Gadde, we offer effective solutions to address acne scars and help you regain smooth, radiant skin. Don't let acne scars define your complexion—discover the transformative possibilities that await you.

  • Hypertrophic scars: Raised or uneven acne scars.
  • Ice pick or deep acne scars: Characterized by the appearance of large, open pores.
  • Boxcar scars: Scars with well-defined, sharp edges.
  • Rolling scars: Scars with gradual and sloping edges.

Acne scar revision involves the use of procedural treatments such as chemical peels, microneedling, and laser therapy. Its goal is to achieve results with minimal downtime, helping individuals regain their much-needed confidence!

Achieving success in acne scar treatment requires patience, and additional follow-up treatments may be needed. Nonetheless, adhering to the prescribed skincare routine afterward is the most effective approach for attaining long-lasting results and preventing new breakouts.

Microneedling: This procedure involves using a derma roller or derma pen with tiny needles to prick the skin. It stimulates the production of new collagen and skin tissues, resulting in smoother, firmer skin. It's minimally invasive, with little to no downtime, and may cause temporary redness and irritation.

Chemical Peels: Chemical peels use various concentrations of ingredients to effectively reduce acne scars, depending on their type. This method is particularly helpful for minimizing macular erythematous acne scars.

Subcision: Subcision is a minimally invasive procedure performed after local anesthesia is administered. It improves skin texture by breaking tough fibrous strands beneath the scars that anchor them to underlying structures, preventing them from being easily treated with just microneedling.

TCA Cross Peel: This procedure targets ice pick scars by applying TCA Cross peel specifically within the scars, resulting in a visible reduction of acne scars.

Intralesional Injections: These injections are used to flatten raised hypertrophic or keloid scars, reducing their size and severity.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): PRP is a newer technique in scar revision. It is used in combination with other procedures like subcision, lasers, and microneedling radiofrequency.

Micro-needling Radiofrequency (MNRF): MNRF is a modern fractional procedure for scar correction. It employs radiofrequency energy to heat deep layers of damaged skin, stimulating elastin and collagen production, reducing scar depth, tightening the skin, and improving texture. MNRF is known for its safety and effectiveness, with minimal side effects.

Benefits of MNRF include:

  • Minimal side effects
  • Strengthening the skin's support system
  • Elevating and making acne scars less visible
  • Skin tightening
  • Improved skin texture

After applying a numbing agent, the skin is treated with the microneedling tip, adjusting the depth according to the scar severity, and radiofrequency energy is applied at the appropriate level. Following the treatment, maintain skin hygiene by washing it and keeping it clean. Apply moisturizer and sunscreen regularly. Avoid dusty environments, and ensure your bed linens are clean.
