Acne Scar Treatment in Delhi
We are a premier centre in Dermatology located in South Extension, New Delhi. We offer management of all types of acne scars. We have very satisfied clients who have had significant improvement in their Acne scars.
Types of Acne Scars
There are several different types of acne scars. Some people have flat areas which look brown or black. Some people have ice-pit scars which look like large open pores. Some have what can best be described as holes in the skin. These scars look like depressed areas on the skin. Yet others have scars which are raised on the surface of the skin- these are called hypertrophic scars.
What Treatments can be carried out?
Treatments options include
TCA cross technique
Botox and filler injections.
The treatments often need to be combined for best results. For eg we may combine chemical peels with microneedling if one has flat areas of discolouration and also scars which look like holes in the skin. The treatments need to be customised according to individual needs. All treatments require multiple sessions.
How much improvement can be seen?
Generally most people do notice 60-70% improvement. Completing the full course of treatment and patience is a mandatory requirement. The improvement usually takes place over months. Sometimes, one may take even 6 months to complete all treatments and see the final outcome.
What are the side effects
Generally most treatments are safe. Most treatments require you to use a sunscreen regularly following treatments. Some treatments like LASER need you to stay indoors for upto 2 weeks after each treatment cycle. There can be some discomfort during the procedure. The discomfort can be reduced by using a numbing gel. There may be occasional bruising with injections. The bruise usually settles down in a week.
Where can I get Acne scar treatment in Delhi?
We offer the entire range of acne scar treatments. We start with an initial consultation. During this consultation, we assess your skin. We also take a detailed history to make sure that you have no condition that precludes any particular treatment. We then have a transparent discussion about what treatment is most likely to work for you, how many sessions will be required, how you need to look after your skin during and after treatments. We also discuss the possible side effects in great detail.
Based upon this, we decide a treatment plan that will work with your lifestyle. The costs are also discussed transparently to avoid any rude shocks in the future.
