Have you been dealing with acne most of your life?
Has acne left your skin pockmarked and pitted?
Would you like to get rid of acne scars and have blemish-free skin?
If you can relate to any of the above questions, we have an excellent solution for your problems. At Rani Md, we know that acne scars can be very distressing. Though acne mainly affects teenagers, it can affect older people too. It often causes permanent textural changes and indentations on the skin that does not disappear.
Our society puts a great emphasis on appearance, and many people with acne feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about their skin. People with acne and the resulting scars often lose self-confidence and shy away from society. The good news is that you don't have to let acne rule your life, as we at Rani MD can help reduce your acne scars.
Types of Acne Scars
These scars are usually raised and lumpy and could develop on the chest and back. They are formed on the outer dermis due to excessive collagen formation during the healing process. If the acne has formed a cyst beneath the skin, you might get a raised scar because when the cystic acne heals, too much scar tissue forms in its place. This kind of rubbery hypertrophic scar is called a keloid and can be lumpy, discolored, and unsightly.
Hypertrophic and keloid scars are more common in the jawline, chest, back, and shoulders.
This scar usually forms on the face and manifests as a depression on the skin. The depression is caused because the scar heals below the outer dermis and is caused by insufficient collagen production during the healing process. Whether they form on the face or torso, atrophic acne scars fall broadly under 3 categories.
These scars can be shallow or deep, usually broad and U-shaped with sharp edges. Boxcar scars most often form on areas like the lower cheeks and jaw, where the skin is relatively thick.
Ice Pick scars
Ice-Pick scars are deeper scars that are narrower and more pointed. They are the most difficult scars to treat, as they may extend far under the skin's surface. These scars are common on the cheeks.
Wide depressed scars with more rounded and irregular edges are called rolling scars.
What Causes Acne?
Acne is caused when skin pores and hair follicles get clogged. The clogging can be due to the over production of oils or dead skin. Bacteria get trapped in the pores when they get clogged, and this infection causes inflammation that manifests as acne. Acne can be superficial and affect only the outer dermis or cause deeper pus-filled spaces caused by acne cysts that penetrate many layers of skin. Picking at acne could cause it to get infected and cause deeper scarring. Sometimes, boxcar scars form after a bout of chickenpox or varicella.
Treatment for Acne Scars
At Rani MD, we know the trauma that acne scars can cause. We offer different treatments for Acne Scar Reduction, and the kind of treatment we recommend will depend on the severity of the scars.
Hypertrophic and keloid scars are raised scars, and the treatment focuses on reducing the height of the scar to achieve smoother skin. Treatments may include dermabrasion, chemical peels, and ablative and non-ablative laser therapy.
Treatment for atrophic scars will focus on smoothening skin and removing pigmentation. Chemical peels, dermabrasion,dermal fillers, and laser therapy can help reduce acne scars.

How to Get Rid of Acne Scars
Scars form when collagen fills damaged skin and pulls it down, contracting it into a different texture from the surrounding skin. The collagen is broken up and reproduced during a scar treatment for smoother, more even-looking skin.
When scars are deep enough to have changed the texture of your skin, laser treatments are recommended as they are non-surgical, non-invasive, and clinically proven to reduce scarring.
At Rani MD, we use RevLite's Q-switched laser technology for Acne Scar Reduction. This device uses a high-speed shutter for the laser to achieve nanosecond pulse widths. Energy is stored between pulses, allowing the RevLite laser to produce a high-power output. This process is known as PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse, or PTP for short.

Any treatment for the face needs to be gentle and handled with care. At Rani MD, a trained and experienced practitioner will administer the Revlite treatment for scar treatment of the face. The laser shots are emitted as short, rapid bursts of energy, and there may be a mild pricking sensation but minimal discomfort when applying the laser pulse.
