Acne scars can make your life difficult. But, the good news is that now you can cure them from the root. Ice pick scars and deep pit acne scars can be effectively treated with punch excision acne scar removal methods. These are basic acne scar removal methods used to heal almost all types of acne scars. During these methods, each scar is treated individually to improve the appearance and texture of your skin.
During punch excision treatment a small, cookie cutter-like tool is used to cut out individual scars. Under local anesthesia the scar is excised with the punch tool and the skin edges are sutured together. The newly produced scar eventually fades and may not be noticeable. If it is noticeable, it is more amenable now to resurfacing techniques. This treatment is best suited for wide, pitted or depressed scars, especially those in prominent places. This treatment is also an effective way to straighten out scars that have healed in a particular pattern or shape.
Skin will heal in a normal process. The treated area should be protected from the sun and care should be taken not to stretch the tissue as it heals. This will help minimize the appearance of the new scar. Sometimes laser treatments can help reduce the redness of scars.
