What Causes Acne Scarring?

First impressions matter. Whether you’re preparing to meet someone important or just navigating daily life, acne scars can significantly impact your self-esteem. With a 95% satisfaction rate, at HAACH, we understand this concern and offer specialised treatments designed to target acne and its lasting effects. In this article, delve into the causes of acne scars, the benefits of acne scar treatment, and determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure.

Prevalence of Acne Scars in Singapore

Acne is a common skin condition that affects roughly 8 in 10 adolescents. It can persist into adulthood in the challenging form of adult-onset acne. Unfortunately, although acne can clear up nicely, more than 90% of acne sufferers end up with distressing scars, with about 30% facing severe cases. If you have acne scars, you may have experienced firsthand the impact they can have on all aspects of your life, including your mental well-being, social life, academics, and employment.

In Singapore, effective acne scar removal treatments are crucial for those seeking a solution. Early intervention for acne breakouts is essential, and finding the right treatments can make a noticeable difference.

Different Types of Acne Marks

acne scar formation

Acne scars develop when the skin struggles to heal after an acne breakout. Collagen, a key element in skin support, is produced during the healing process, leading to scar formation. Understanding different types of acne scars, such as hypertrophic, atrophic (including boxcar, ice pick, and rolling scars), and the challenges associated with keloid scars, is crucial. Read on to learn about the different types of acne scars and acne treatment facials available.

Types of Acne Scars

Hypertrophic or Raised Acne Scars:

These scars, commonly found with chest and back acne, rise above the skin’s surface due to an excess of collagen during the healing process. It’s crucial to distinguish between true scars and temporary discoloration left after a zit clears, as purple, red, or brown marks will naturally fade over a few months.

Atrophic or Depressed Acne Scars:

Atrophic scars, mainly on the face, result from inadequate collagen during wound healing, creating depressions in the skin. There are three subtypes of atrophic scars:

1. Boxcar Scars:
U-shaped scars with sharp edges, varying in depth. Shallow boxcar scars respond well to skin resurfacing treatments like microdermabrasion and gentle peels, suitable for almost all skin types. Caution is advised with laser resurfacing, especially for darker skin tones.

2. Ice Pick Scars:
Narrow, V-shaped scars that extend deep into the skin, resembling small round or oval holes. Challenging to treat, they penetrate far beneath the skin’s surface.

3. Rolling Scars:
Wide depressions with rounded edges, presenting an irregular, rolling appearance.

Before initiating any acne scar treatment, consulting with a dermatologist or healthcare professional is essential. They can guide you in determining the most effective methods to reduce scar appearance and ensure an accurate diagnosis of skin marks.

Risk of Scarring from Acne

acne types scarring risk

Risk of Acne Scarring Based on Different Types:

1. Blackheads: None
Blackheads, characterised by open pores with darkened debris, typically pose a minimal risk of scarring. They are considered non-inflammatory lesions and, when managed properly, often do not result in lasting skin damage.

2. Whiteheads, Adult Rosacea, Enlarged Pores: Low
Whiteheads, adult rosacea, and enlarged pores are generally associated with low to moderate risk of scarring. While they may cause some irritation, these conditions often respond well to proper skincare and medical treatments, reducing the likelihood of significant scarring.

3. Teenage Acne: Medium
Teenage acne, often driven by hormonal changes during adolescence, carries a moderate risk of scarring. The severity of scarring can vary, and timely intervention with appropriate acne management can help minimise the impact on the skin.

4. Adult Acne, Cystic Acne: High
Adults experiencing acne, especially cystic acne characterised by deep, painful nodules, face a higher risk of scarring. Cystic acne lesions can penetrate deeper layers of the skin, increasing the potential for lasting scars. Adult acne may also be influenced by hormonal factors, emphasising the importance of seeking professional guidance for effective treatment.

Key Factors for Acne Scar Treatment Facials

Acne scars can be a persistent challenge, but at HAACH, we offer a range of treatments tailored to address these concerns and enhance your skin’s overall health. Here’s a guide to help you choose the most suitable treatment for your unique needs:

Your Skin Type:

Assess whether you have dry, sensitive, or oily skin. Different facials cater to specific skin types for optimal results.

Severity of Your Acne:

Determine the extent of your acne condition. Whether your acne is mild or has been persistent, this influences the choice of treatment.

Stage of Your Acne:

Identify if you are dealing with active acne or are left with residual scars. Treatment approaches may vary based on the stage of your condition.

Underlying Health Conditions:

Consider any additional health conditions that may contribute to acne, such as hormonal changes. Our holistic approach addresses the root causes.

Technology Behind Acne Scar Treatment

While researching acne scar treatment options, the following are terms you may encounter — presented in a simplified manner.

Dermal Fillers

Used to fill depressed scars, dermal fillers enhance overall skin texture, providing a smoother appearance.

LED Light Therapy

Utilising LED light, this therapy stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture and aiding in acne scar treatments.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

1. How Much Does Acne Scar Treatment Cost in Singapore?

In Singapore, acne scar treatment can set you back between $200 and $400. Its cost varies depending on factors such as the location of the clinic,  experience level of the doctors and severity/depth of your acne scars. At HAACH, you can now enjoy our Gentleman Retreat and Ladies Radiant Glow treatments for the special price of $88.

2. If I Have Acne, Can I Get Treated for Acne Scars?

Yes, you can get treated for acne scars while having active acne. Dermatologists often use a combination approach, with treatment options including laser therapy, chemical peels, and microneedling. These target scars while addressing underlying acne. Individualised plans can cater to acne scars and active acne simultaneously. For personalised advice and effective results, we recommend consulting a dermatologist at HAACH.

3. Can Acne Scars be Permanently Removed?

Superficial acne scars may be removed permanently, while the appearance of deeper acne scars can be reduced, even if complete removal isn’t possible.

4. Which Acne Scar is Hardest to Treat?

The ice pick scar, which typically extends into the skin’s deep layers, can be considered as the hardest to treat. Characterised by tiny indentions in the skin, it’s widest at the surface and narrows with depth. Typically, treatment of ice pick scars involve two stages: stage 1 is aimed at reducing the depth of the scar, while stage 2 aims to reduce skin discoloration in the newly flat scar.

5. Can Treatments for Acne Scars Potentially Result in Pain or Discomfort?

The likelihood of experiencing discomfort during acne scar treatments is minimal. The procedures at HAACH are designed with patient comfort in mind, and healthcare providers take measures to minimise any potential pain, ensuring a positive and comfortable experience.

6. How Many Sessions Are Usually Needed for Noticeable Results in Acne Scar Treatments?

The number of sessions needed for visible results in acne scar treatments varies based on individual factors such as the severity of scars. Generally, multiple sessions are recommended for optimal outcomes. At HAACH, healthcare professionals personalise treatment plans to meet individual needs and ensure gradual improvement.

7. How Long do Acne Scar Treatments Take?

The duration of acne scar treatments depends on the specific procedure and the extent of scarring. While some treatments may be relatively quick, others may involve multiple sessions over weeks or months. The focus is on achieving effective and lasting results while accommodating individual schedules.

8. Is There Downtime Associated with Acne Scar Treatments?

The downtime after acne scar treatments is generally minimal. While some procedures may require a short recovery period, allowing individuals to resume regular activities promptly, the overall downtime varies depending on the specific treatment chosen. HAACH prioritises treatments with minimal disruption to daily life.

9. What's the Recommended Treatment for Acne Scars?

Determining the most suitable treatment for acne scars involves considering factors like skin type, severity of scars, and individual preferences. HAACH offers a range of treatments, including options like the ADR Facial and Perfecting the Past Facial, each catering to different skin types and needs. Consulting with HAACH’s experienced professionals ensures a personalised and effective approach to address acne scars.

10. What Makes Acne Scars Look Worse?

Acne scars appear worse when aggravated by habits like picking or squeezing, increased exposure to sunlight leading to pigmentation issues, and the use of skincare products with harsh chemicals or fragrances, which can irritate the skin and hinder the healing process. Optimal scar care involves avoiding these factors and opting for gentle skincare routines with sun protection.

11. Do Acne Scars Get Worse With Age?

Yes, certain acne scars do get worse with age. As our skin ages, collagen is lost and the rate of collagen regeneration slows down, causing an overall decrease in elasticity. As such, depressed acne scars may become more pronounced.

12. Does Vitamin C Help With Acne Scars?

Yes, Vitamin C can help reduce the appearance of acne scars by encouraging collagen synthesis and discouraging permanent scar formation. Improve and maintain your skin with skin care products that contain Vitamin C. HAACH’s Glamour C range can help fade existing scars while brightening your skin tone. Check out our complete range of products here and consult our doctors to find a routine that works for you.

13. Are There Subsidies For Acne Scar Treatment?

Unfortunately, as acne scar treatment falls under the category of cosmetic procedures, there are no subsidies for it under Medisave, CHAS or other government schemes.
