Acne is one the most common problem of adolescent age group. If not managed properly they may leave behind unsightly scars. Acne scars are primarily of three types – Ice pick, Box & Rolling Scars. At Shanti Skin & Laser centre we employ most advance techniques to treat these scars. We use CO2 Laser, Dermaroller, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy , CROSS technique for treatment of these scars.

Dermaroller with Platelet rich Plasma therapy is the latest treatment modality for treatment of acne scars. It is a multiple sitting procedure, generally repeated after 6 weeks. Using a special instrument called dermaroller, we create multiple channels in the scar area. We apply body`s own growth factors derived from patients blood to those channels. This leads to new collagen synthesis in the scar area and thereby improvement in the scar.

CROSS is one of the most effective modality for the treatment of ice pick scars. TCA (Trichloro acetic acid) is applied in the scar area using special applicator. This leads to controlled damage of the scar and formation of new skin. This leads to improvement of scar appearance and depth.

CO2 Laser is used for spot resurfacing for large scars.
