Scars and lesions

What are ACNE scars? Can they be treated?

ACNE scarring outcomes are extremely common and deserve a brief specific capping.

Let’s start by saying that Yes, they can be treated.

Scar tissue is the fibrous tissue that closes wounds by limiting any loss of tissue and organ substance.

Scar tissue forms whenever there is an injury, traumatic or pathological, and is an interruption in the continuity of the skin due to the proliferation of the dermis and epidermis.

Inevitably, scars always leave a more or less obvious mark on the skin. The most common scars and marks are due to chicken pox, teenage acne, or from stitches resulting from surgery or accidents.

There can also be problems with not accepting our appearance because of these scars for both aesthetic and/or functional reasons, as sometimes these could also result in some limitations in movement.

Acne scars form when the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, has been damaged and those deeper inside have also been affected. The skin is unable to regenerate exactly as it was before, and so the wound is replaced by a granular tissue consisting of collagen fibers. These fibers fill the wound from the inside and help heal the damaged part of the skin. Such replacement tissue can heal the wound, but it can also remain visible.

ACNE scars are classically divided into three types according to their shape:

Ice pick scars: these are triangular-shaped, deep, punctiform scars that can resemble a large pore. They occur when inflammation causes the collagen beneath the surface of the skin to collapse, leaving a deep “V-shaped” depression. They are strictly very difficult to treat.

Box-car scars: these are round and pitted, with defined edges, and are similar to chickenpox scars. They form when inflammation destroys the collagen that provides structural support for the skin, which consequently sinks. Shallow ones may respond well to treatment, but deeper ones may be more difficult to remove.

Rolling Scars: these are depressions created by fibrous bands that pull the epidermis from below, giving the skin an irregular, wavy appearance. They are concave with softer edges, trending like necks. They are the easiest to treat and are most common in areas where the skin is thicker, such as the lower cheeks and jaw.


The degree of improvement varies greatly depending on the severity of the patient’s scars

In this case, Dr. Frach will also apply the Grace Protocol to treat Acne Scars.

The goal of treatment in this type of lesion is to reduce depressions, making the skin even. No technology to date can regenerate a scar by transforming it back into viable physiological skin, but the thermal effect can stimulate collagen remodeling, elastic fiber production, and neocollagen synthesis.

All these changes contribute to the effective restructuring of the scar itself by lifting its bottom and making it less noticeable.

Undoubtedly scars are the most visible and severe consequences of acne, but it can leave other marks such as pimple spots caused by post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

Hyperpigmentation occurs when melanocytes (the cells that produce melanin or pigment) increase melanin production at the site of an injury or inflammation caused by acne.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can also be treated with the Grace protocol, and often the patient gains a “photoshopped” effect due to more even color in the face.
