How to Treat Rolling Acne Scars

by | Mar 11, 2024 | Cosmetic Dermatology

Rolling acne scars give skin a rough, uneven texture that can diminish your self-esteem. While over-the-counter (OTC) products rarely smooth the appearance of these jagged scars, many professional treatments can.

Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York is home to more than 100 lasers to treat rolling acne scars. All of our procedures are administered by board-certified physicians for the highest quality of care. For treatments tailored to your needs and rejuvenating results, trust our experts.

What are Rolling acne scars?

 

Rolling acne scars are atrophic lesions that look sunken due to tissue loss. These scars appear wavy in texture without clearly defined borders and can make facial skin look rough. Rounded, sloping edges develop as depressions on the face.

This type of scarring forms when fibrous bands of tissue develop between the skin and the subcutaneous tissue underneath during the acne-healing process. These bands pull on the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) and create depressions. This process occurs as a result of a minor infection that thins the dermis and fat underneath the overlying skin.

These indentations can become more noticeable over time, as skin loses its laxity throughout the aging process. Individuals with long-term inflammatory acne commonly end up with this condition. Those who pick at their acne can disrupt collagen production during the healing process and deepen the lesions.

Best treatments for Rolling acne scars

Rolling acne scars treatment will vary from patient to patient, but the best treatment for rolling acne scars typically involves lasers and the devices we have here at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York.

Treatment must sever the fibrotic tethers in the deeper layers of the skin to remodel its appearance. The success of treatment depends on a variety of factors. Age, overall health and medical history, and reactions to therapy can all determine the type of treatment required. The deeper the lesions, the more aggressive treatment will need to be. At Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, we have an array of treatment options to help every patient. We combine different devices to revitalize and renew the appearance of your skin.

We use non-ablative and ablative lasers to treat rolling acne scars. Devices that can target this condition include:

Dermal fillers can also be used to add volume to sunken skin. Restylane and Juvederm are commonly used to plump the skin from underneath, reducing the appearance of these sunken, wavy scars.

While chemical peels, subcision, and dermal grafting are frequently used for people searching for how to treat rolling acne scars, laser treatments are usually the most convenient, affordable, and effective options. When it comes to scar removal, we have the best methods to help improve the appearance of your skin.
