Do You Know Your Acne Scar Type?

Do You Know Your Acne Scar Type?

Aren’t acne scars one such skin concern that you constantly try to get rid of? Be it with patches of concealers or layers of liquid foundation, you give it your best shot to hide these scars as much as possible. But while you’re busy trying hard to eliminate these scars, are you aware that these regular looking scars are further divided into various categories as well? Yes that’s right! Acne scars are classified into various types.

Here are some types of acne scars that can commonly be spotted on your skin.

The Types Of Acne Scars

Ice Pick Acne Scars


If your skin is prone to acne, you are likely to witness the arrival of ice pick scars. These scars develop when you experience severe acne that goes deeper into your skin pores. Ice pick acne scars can be identified by their narrowness, seeming like small yet deep holes punctured into the outer layer of skin.

Boxcar Acne Scars


As compared to ice pick scars, boxcar scars are broader in size which give your skin an uneven, pocky look. These scars are generally formed when the inflammation damages the skin tissues on the top layer of your skin. Such damage creates a concave area on your skin, giving rise to boxcar acne scars.

Rolling Scars


Rolling scars may seem to be similar to boxcar scars but there is a slight difference that distinguishes them. Rolling scars too are broad, uneven scars but they make it appear like the layer of skin itself is hollow. This is because rolling scars are caused when the skin fibre that develops below your skin starts stretching the scars, giving your skin an uneven appearance.

How To Get Rid Of Acne Scars?

For all those who are troubled by scarring and have been told that these scars won’t leave your skin, we have a good news! With these unique techniques, waving goodbye to acne scars will be simpler than ever before!

Be it superficial or deep acne scars, the Kaya Advanced Sculpting Micro-Needling technique is the ideal treatment that works on any type of acne scar. It is a minimally invasive service where tiny micro-needles deliver controlled radio frequency energy directly into various depths of your skin to develop collagen. As this service boosts collagen production, it leaves you with even and firmer skin. The micro needling treatment is also beneficial for skin lifting, tightening, pore reduction and overall rejuvenation. Once the procedure is completed you may experience a slight redness on the treated areas for 3 to 4 hours but this is just a part of the healing process. Most patients see excellent results in 3 sessions.

You can also opt for the Kaya Acne Scar Free Plus treatment which uses a highly effective dermaroller to treat scarring. This dermaroller penetrates the upper layers of your skin at a depth of up to 1.5mm to stimulate collagen production. This helps in the permanent reduction of acne scars with your skin appearing visibly smoother. For optimal results, 4-5 sessions of this treatment are required with a gap of 8-10 weeks between two sessions.

To conclude, no matter which type of acne scar you notice on your skin, with the solution that we’ve provided, any scar can be waved off easily!
