What is an Acne Scar?

Acne scars are the result of the skin’s repair of wounds caused by acne inflammation. They are disfiguring, disheartening and affect one’s self-confidence.

Importance of Early Intervention

In scar treatment, prevention is most important. This is achieved through early medical intervention which includes preventing acne outbreaks and educating teenagers against scratching their acne.

Our Preferred Treatment Methods
For Acne Scar Removal

In many cases, different types of scars appear together on the face, thus there is a need to combine different treatments to achieve the optimal result. Every treatment has its own unique advantage and strength and addresses the specific type of scar or underlying skin issue.

  • Fractional CO2
    (All Acne Scars)

    Fractional CO2 laser utilizes a very narrow laser microbeam to initiate a quick wound healing response and develops new collagen on the treated skin.

    This laser significantly helps to improve and smooth appropriate acne scars.

  • TCA Cross
    (Ice Pick & Boxcar Scars)

    TCA CROSS stands for Tri-Chloracetic Acid Chemical Reconstruction of Scarring. It uses 80-100% TCA to improve the appearance of pore-like scars and acne scars that are either ice pick, punch out or box-like.

  • Scars Subcision
    (All Scars)

    In scars subcision, a needle-blade is inserted from the edge of the scars into the base of the acne scars to cut and free the fibrous-like scars. Where necessary, Dr. Wong will combine this procedure with other treatments to obtain optimum results.

  • Surgical Excision of Isolated Scars
    (Small & Linear Scars)

    This method is best suited for small and linear scars. Dr. Wong will remove the scar surgically and re-join the normal skin. The skin will heal neatly into a less obvious scar.

  • ND-YAG Laser
    (Hyperpigmented Acne Scars)

    For patients who are eager to improve their “acne marks” quickly, ND-YAG laser treatment is invaluable. Generally, two to five sessions of treatments will be sufficient to lighten or completely clear the hyperpigmented acne marks.

  • Chemical Peels
    (Atrophic Acne Scars)

    Chemical peels remove the top layer of the skin with a medical-grade chemical acid to smooth depressed and superficial scars. Different chemicals can be used to peel the skin at varying depth.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    About Acne Scar Removal

    • Are acne scar removal treatments painful?

      Numbing cream and local anesthesia are applied before all treatments, so pain levels are minimal. The depth of the laser applied to your skin will also depend on the type of scar and severity of your skin condition.

    • Can acne scars be permanently removed?

      For some acne scars, yes. Depending on the severity and type of acne scars you have, Dr. Wong will prescribe a treatment plan that is most effective in improving and reducing the appearance of your scars.

    • What causes acne scars?

      Acne breakouts typically penetrate the skin deeply, damaging skin and tissue below it. As soon as the acne clears, the body attempts to repair this damage. During the healing process, the body produces collagen, a substance that gives skin support. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, a scar will develop. The kind of scar that develops depends on how much collagen is produced.

    • Do I need acne scar treatment?

      Clinical treatments are recommended based on the severity of your scars. Early prevention is important to prevent further scarring. It helps to boost one’s self confidence, career search and progress.
