You may get deep scars on your face due to acne. Such scars can be corrected surgically. Using a round and sharp tool, which is commonly known as a punch biopsy tool, the skin edges can be joined. Thus, the scar is removed from the skin. The size of the tool should be matched with that of the scar. Newly produced stitch marks will fade away and not be noticeable.

This is an advanced technique. The scar is scratched first and instead of joining the skin edges, the defect is concealed with a punch skin graft taken usually from the back of the ears. The skin tone may be change after the drafting, but using the skin resurfacing technique, the difference can be corrected.

Punch elevation technique is really effective as it never causes any differences in the skin tone or smoothness after the treatment. The punch tool is used in this treatment.

The base is then elevated and attached with the joints to the skin surface using a skin glue called Dermabond.
5. Subcutaneous incision technique
Rolling scars occur when fibrous bands develop between the skin surfaces. In the Subcutaneous Incision technique (Subcision), these fibrous bands are broken up by a needle that is inserted under the skin and the tissue, parallel to the skin’s surface. The bruises which appear after the treatment heal after one week. Sometimes, bleeding or nodules may occur after the treatment, but they all can be healed with injections and proper medication.

The laser resurfacing treatment is very popular and effective too. The laser types using for these are carbon dioxide and erbium lasers. The treatment includes the burning of the top skin layers. New skin forms and thus the blemishes disappear.
