What are the most effective treatments for boxcar and rolling acne scars, and how many sessions are needed? (photo)

Age: 16 - 29
Acne & Scars

What are the most effective treatments in treating them and how many sessions is needed to have clear skin?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Hi!


Your boxcar and rolling acne scars can be improved and smoothened to a significant extent - improvement by a few grades on the acne severity score or up to 80% improvement. 


I use a combination of different types of acne scar treatments to target acne scars thoroughly.  The types of treatments depend on your scar type, skin type, budget and ability to handle down-time (recovery time). 

The best treatments for box car and rolling acne scars are:

1. Subcision with collagen stimulating fillers - To release tethered (held down) scars and to stimulate collagen production


2. Fractional Laser resurfacing (eg CO2/Erbium fractional lasers like Edge Fractional CO2 lasers)


3. RF micro-needling (eg Infini, Intracel)

Several treatment sessions are required (3-5 sessions) and I use a combination of acne scar treatments in each session to give faster results.

Each of these treatments works synergistically.

I suggest that you have a face to face consult with a doctor who focuses on acne scars treatment for an accurate treatment plan.

For more details on the prices of acne scar treatments, you can check out this article onacne scar treatment costs in Singapore.

Hope this helps!


Warmest regards,


Dr Justin Boey
