What Are Acne Scars?

The appearance of acne scars is a result of an imbalance in collagen production following a moderate to severe acne breakout. Mild acne may result in temporary hyperpigmentation, but it typically fades over time. To effectively reduce the appearance of acne scars, medical treatment is necessary as home remedies and over-the-counter products lack evidence of their efficacy and safety. These methods can also potentially irritate acne-prone skin and cause additional harm.


There are several types of acne scars, each with a unique appearance, and only a dermatologist can properly identify them. These include rolling scars, boxcar scars, ice pick scars, macular erythematous scars, and keloids. Mild acne may also result in acne marks or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which may or may not fade over time.

  • Rolling scars: Scars that are wide and remain attached to deeper tissue, causing a shadowing effect on the skin.
  • Boxcar scars: Scars that have a crater-like appearance with an oval shape and sharp edges.
  • Ice pick scars: Deep, V-shaped scars with a narrow tip.
  • Macular erythematous scars: Flat, red, and pigmented pimple marks.
  • Keloids: Raised or hypertrophic scars caused by acne.


La Derma clinics in Kolkata offer advanced and customised scar removal treatment. Our dermatologists use various non-surgical methods such as scar resurfacing using laser/MNRF/Peels, dermal fillers, laser toning, and intralesional injections for scar treatment for face. All treatments use USFDA-approved technology to boost collagenproduction and improve skin texture. Each treatment is tailored to your skin type, scar type, and severity. These treatments also work for pockmarks. Visit us today for a consultation with our experienced medical team.

  • Laser Resurfacing: Laser resurfacing also called acne laser treatment or laser treatment for acne scars or laser scar removal is one of the most effective treatments for blemishes or scars on face. It uses a US FDA Approved Fractional CO2 Laser (Erbium YAG Laser). We consider it the gold standard treatment because it works for all skin types, is minimally invasive and targets both the epidermis (superficial skin layer) and dermis (deeper skin layer) and is effective in hypertrophied as well as pitted scars.
  • Microneedling Radiofrequency (MNRF): This is a non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy and USFDA-approved Secret technology to heat the deeper layers of skin to boost collagen and elastin production. It can help reduce the depth of scars and improve the skin's texture, delivering a smooth, rejuvenated and youthful appearance. It is also done using a derma pen or dermaroller.
  • Chemical Peels: This is a customised treatment where the type, concentration and depth of plant-based extracts used depend on the individual's skin type, the severity of the skin condition, and the target area. Chemical peels are recommended for minimising red macular erythematous acne scars and offer controlled exfoliation of the scarred tissue.
  • TCA Cross Peel: This treatment uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to reduce the appearance of ice pick scars. The TCA is applied precisely to the damaged skin using a toothpick to stimulate collagen production.
  • Dermal Fillers: Fillers may be used to fill in acne scars and help even out the skin. The fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers and are US FDA approved. They’re injected under the surface of the skin to help plump up and smooth out depressed scars. Most fillers last between 12 and 18 months before they need to be redone, but some are permanent. It is best for someone with a small number of boxcar or rolling scars.
  • Laser Toning: This USFDA-approved technology-based treatment helps correct post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or discolouration caused by acne and helps attain a flawless complexion.
  • Intralesional Injections: This safe and effective treatment is performed by dermatologists to reduce hypertrophic scars and keloids. The medication is injected to reduce the inflammation and size of these scars.
