Ice Pick Scars

hr

Ice Pick scars, being the most common, get their name from the actual formation of the scars. As the name suggests, they are shaped like the hole left from an ice pick. The scars are deep and narrow, which makes it difficult for them to be filled up naturally with collagen and some are too deep to heal entirely. Ice pick scars are usually less than 2mm across.

Boxcar Scars

hr

Boxcar scars are wider and more rectangular with vertical edges as compared to ice pick scars. Boxcar scars are most commonly found on the temples and cheeks. While these scars can be deep or shallow, the majority of Boxcar scars are not as deep as Ice Pick scars.

Rolling Scars

Rolling scars are the least common scar type of the three. These scars are typically shallow and wide. Caused by damage under the surface of the skin, rolling scars are round and give the skin a rolling, wave-like appearance.

Treatment Options
hr

A variety of treatment options for acne scars and other types of scars are available. Treatments include the use of microneedling, lasers (including Frax 1540, Fraxel, Frax CO2, Frax Erb:YAG, Picosure Focus), fillers (especially Bellafill), collagen stimulators (such as Sculptra or Radiesse), and occasionally deep chemical peels. Most times, these treatments are used in combination depending on the types of scars being treated. At each treatment session, Dr. Chilukuri re-examines you to optimize the treatment to produce the maximum result.

The frequency of treatment options depends on your ability to produce new collagen and elastin. By scheduling a consultation in Houston, Texas, you will receive an individualized treatment plan.
