The treatment of Acne scars is a complex cosmetic problem and today medicine does not offer a perfect solution for this cosmetic difficulty. The most popular and effective permanent acne scar treatments today include: Dermabrasion, Micro-dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser skin resurfacing.
Dermabrasion is proven to be an effective treatment for acne scars, but it is an invasive procedure with a long recovery time. The latest laser skin resurfacing techniques are also effective, but involve the same problems as Dermabrasion; it is invasive and requires weeks and sometimes months for complete recovery. Both Dermabrasion and Laser skin resurfacing need only a few treatments, but the recovery and healing process are long and painful. On other hand Microdermabrasion and mild chemical peels acne scar treatments, are gradual, requiring 10 to 20 treatments to achieve the same results as Laser skin resurfacing or dermabrasion, without down time or side effects. Celluline's choices for Acne scars treatments in Toronto are Microdermabrasion and mild chemical peels, because they are safe, involve no down time and have proven results.

Acne Scars -The final stage of most inflamed acne lesions can results in permanent acne scars or Pseud-scars and Post-inflammatory pigmentation.
 
Post-inflammatory pigmentation is discoloration of the skin where is healing inflamed acne lesion. It is more frequently in darker-skinned people. Post-inflammatory pigmentation is not permanent but it may persist long time in some case up to up to 18 months, especially with excessive sun exposure. Chemical peeling may be used in order to speed up  the disappearance of post-inflammatory pigmentation.
 
Pseudo-scars or Macules (patch of skin that is not the same color as the surrounding skin) are flat and  red spots that are the final stage of most inflamed acne lesions. After an inflamed acne lesion flattens, a macule may remain  for up to 6 months. When the macule eventually disappears, no trace of it will remain?unlike a scar.
 
Permanent Acne scars are caused by the body?s inflammatory response to acne lesions. Scarring often results from severe inflammatory nodulocystic acne that occurs deep in the skin. But, scarring also may arise from more superficial inflamed lesions.
 

Types of Acne Scars -Two types of acne scars exist: scars caused by loss of tissue, such as ice-pick scars, and scars caused by increased tissue formation such as keloids. Acne scars associated with loss of tissue are similar to scars that result from chicken pox and are more common than keloids and hypertrophic scars.
