Information on Acne Scars
Acne scars, just like acne itself, are a matter of concern to most people, and may significantly affect their psychology and mood. The scars appear after the inflammation of the acne has declined and can be created even when inflammation is minimal. Acne scars occur mainly on the face and body, especially when the individual suffers from types of acne that tend to leave scars or have particularly sensitive skin.

Which Are the Basic Types of Acne Scars?
There are two main groups of acne scars. The atrophic group is characterized by tissue loss, while the hypertrophic or keloid group is characterized by excessive tissue. In both cases, acne inflammation starts and the scar is created either because there is not enough collagen production resulting in loss of skin tissue, or because collagen production is overproduced, but it is disorderly distributed to the skin, resulting in burdens.
How to Prevent Acne Scars
The only certain line of acne scarring prevention is the timely visit to the dermatologist, who will assess the acne condition and suggest the right treatment. Of course, pressuring the inflammation scars and any contact of acne with dirty hands should be avoided, in order not to cause further contamination. However, in some cases, despite preventive measures, some scars are inevitable and the only sure solution lies in the dermatologist's office.

How Are Acne Scars Treated? 
At Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab, the following modern methods are used to treat acne scars:
  • Chemical Peeling: Chemical peeling, in which mainly trichloroacetic acid is used, creates a controlled "burn" to remove the outer layer of the skin and help in its regeneration.
  • Dermabrasion: Through dermabrasion we achieve the scaling and removal of the dead cells of the epidermis, achieving grinding the depth of the scar. Repeated treatments are needed to slowly eliminate acne scars.
  • Fractional Laser: Acne scars, just like pimples, are benefited through the use of Fractional Laser, which helps fibroblasts to activate collagen production fighting inflammation, scarring and discolouration of acne. It may take 5 to 6 sessions, depending on the size of the problem. Sessions are short, taking about 30 minutes, and the return to daily activities is immediate.
  • Autologous PRP Mesotherapy: PRP alone or in combination with Fractional Laser reduces acne scars and heals tissues, thanks to its antimicrobial action. The person's return to day-to-day activities is immediate.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: This method is used to fill the atrophic scars of acne. The result of this quick treatment, which smoothens the unevenness of the skin, is immediately visible. The person's return to day-to-day activities is immediate.
