Acne & Acne Scars

Acne & Acne Scars

Acne is one of the most common skin problems that affect both men and women. From mild acne to more severe cases, there are a variety of categories of bumps, whiteheads, blackheads, nodules and pimples that may develop on an individual’s face, back, chest, neck and shoulders etc. Acne is usually caused due hormonal changes, certain medications, hereditary factors or a diet that is high in dairy products and refined sugars or carbohydrates.
When acne breakouts penetrate deep into the skin, they damage both the skin and the tissue beneath it. As the acne clears, the body tries to repair this damage. During the healing process, the body produces collagen—a substance that gives the skin support. If the body produces too little or too much collagen, the skin will scar.
Active acne and acne scars affect the appearance of the face which can in turn hamper one’s confidence and self-esteem. Fortunately, modern advancements in cosmetic medicine have made it possible to treat acne and acne scarring.

Your Journey with CosmeSurge


During your consultation, you will discuss your concerns with the dermatologist and get an opportunity to understand the cause of your problem and the possible treatment option. Based on the skin evaluation, the dermatologist will create a treatment plan tailored to your skin type, tone and extent of problem. The treatment plan will be devised after considering several factors like the severity of acne, scar types, location of scars etc.


Your tailored treatment plan may be a combination of treatments along with medication and certain home care solutions which will give you long lasting result. The plan will include treatments from the below list:

  • Laser Therapy: This approach is an increasingly popular therapy for treating acne and acne scars. The treatment is safe, effective and painless. Laser treatments work either by destroying the outer layer of the skin or by heating up the skin below the surface and encouraging the growth of new skin. Fractional CO2, Sciton, Fraxel, Picoway are laser therapies which are known to treat acne and acne scars.
  • Other Energy-Based Therapies: Pulsed light therapy, radiofrequency or combination of various energy-based technologies help make scar less noticeable without damaging the outer layer of the skin. The results are subtle but flawless. At CosmeSurge, we house number of such energy-based treatments like EndyMed, Viora, SecretRF, Scarlet etc.
  • Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers are a great treatment option for minimizing the appearance of depressed acne scars. They can also add desired volume below the skin surface, lift the divot and make it look even with the surrounding skin. Fillers are fit for atrophic acne scars and can deliver instant results.
  • Microneedling: This is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The process promotes the growth of new collagen in your skin, encouraging your skin to heal itself, reducing the appearance of ice pick, boxcar, and rolling acne scars.
  • Dermabrasion: This procedure is popular for resurfacing the skin. It is an exfoliating treatment that works on rapidly rotating device to remove the outer layer of the skin and encouraging the growth of new skin. During the procedure, a professional will numb your skin with anesthesia before removing the outermost layers of your skin. This is an outpatient procedure, meaning that you can go home to recover following the treatment. Post the treatment skin will become sensitive and it will take few months for the skin to get back to normal.
  • Microdermabrasion: A minimally invasive procedure used to remove the outermost or most superficial layers of the skin using fine abrasive. The process is aimed at rubbing off or exfoliating the dead and damaged skin layers from the face which takes around 45 minutes and requires multiple sessions. There is little to no downtime and you should be able to resume day to day activity immediately.
  • Chemical Peels: They are a powerful form of exfoliation to treat acne and acne scars. During the procedure, a special solution is applied to the skin to take out the dead cells to improve appearance of the skin. You can repeat mild and medium peels to maintain results. You can have only one deep peel. Potential side effects include changes in skin color, especially with deep peels used on dark skin. Different types of peels like TCA, Cosmelan, Dermelan are used by our experts.
  • Facials: There are various facial options at CosmeSurge that can help treat active acne while some work to treat leftover scars. Facials aims at cleansing pores and exfoliating dead skin cells. The products used during facial helps cut down on surface oil and remove dead skin cells which in turn improves the appearance of the skin and minimizes breakouts.
  • PRP & Mesotherapy: Also known as collagen induction therapy, it involves the use of short needles which are inserted into the skin to rejuvenate it. The needles used will help induce microscopic wounds in the skin and when that happens, new collage is produced resulting in an improved tone and texture of the skin and a drastic improvement to the signs of acne scars.
  • Subcision: It is a procedure used to treat acne scarring, specifically depressed acne scars. Depressed acne scars are caused when fibrotic strands pull the skin downwards, creating the superficial indentations. During treatment a small needle cuts these fibrotic strands thereby releasing the tension of the scar, allowing the skin to rise. Immediately after the treatment the area will be swollen, and bruises may appear. You can return back to work immediately and will be able to results soon after the treatment which tends to improve over the next few months. It can easily be combined with other treatments such as laser, dermaroller and scar revisions for maximum efficacy.
  • Homecare: Our expert may also advise you to use certain skincare products as a part of the treatment plan. Some medicated creams, such as those containing azelaic acid or hydroxyl acids are helpful as well.

Post Treatment

Based on the treatment plan, there may be little to no downtime, but the results will be noticeable mostly from the first session itself. As the sessions progress you will see a noticeable difference in the condition and texture of your skin. It will appear more cleaner and brighter, while acne lesions and scars will reduce dramatically.


For long-lasting results, following doctor instructions is vital and maintenance session should be attended, if required. Since acne is caused mostly by hormonal changes, it is important complete the entire course of treatment.
