When choosing an acne scar removal treatment you need to firstly, work out what sort of acne scar you have, because some treatments are more effective on different types of scars than they are on others. Therefore, there is a lot of acne scar removal techniques that may not necessarily be the most effected for you.
Punch techniques are typically used for deep acne scarring like “ice pick” scars. The procedure involves the physical removal of the tissue containing the scar and either the suture or replacement of the remaining tissue.
Ice pick scars and deep pit scars are best treated with the punch excision method of scar removal. It is the most basic scar removal procedure used for most types of acne scars. Each scar is treated separately to improve the appearance of depressed acne scars.
A punch excision utilizes a punch biopsy tool that looks a bit like a small, round, sharp cookie cutter. It may vary in width depending on the size of the treatment area, generally between 1.5 mm and 3.5mm. Local anaesthesia is applied to the area and the tool is used to remove the scar and its surrounding edges. Now that the scar is removed the skin is sutured together and heals.
You must know that the procedure leaves behind a small and much lighter acne scar in comparison to the original one. In case you are not happy with it and want that scar to go away, you could go for laser resurfacing that would fade away even that minor scar.
Are there any risks involved?
There are no specific risks involved in punch excision acne scar removal method. Only if you think that you don’t want the lighter resultant scar then you can go for another treatment which would solve the problem completely.
