Step by Step® Treatment of Acne Scars

by Niti Khunger

Acne is a very common disorder in adolescence; and, unfortunately, scarring following acne occurs early and may affect 95% of patients depending on severity of acne and delay in treatment. Acne scars are predominantly seen on the face and can cause profound psychosocial distress in the growing years as well as in adulthood. Treating acne scars is challenging as postacne scars are polymorphic and management involves the use of various modalities depending on the type of scars. The aim of this book is to give a comprehensive step-by-step guide to the treatment of acne scars, which can be understood and followed by a young physician entering into the world of esthetic surgery as well as older physicians not exposed to newer techniques. This book is unique because individual types of scars have been dealt with in detail so that the physician understands the pathophysiology and principle behind their treatment, as well as approach to the patient as a whole. The book deals with the art and skill of combining various techniques of acne scar revision, their proper application to give optimum results and the unique challenges posed by skin of color. Emphasis has been laid on the possible complications that can occur, particularly in darker skins and their detailed management. This book will be an invaluable resource to dermatosurgeons, plastic surgeons and esthetic surgeons dealing particularly with facial scars.
