All About Atrophic Scars Orlando, FL

What Are Atrophic Scars?

An atrophic scar develops when the skin cannot regenerate tissue correctly. Unlike keloids and hypertrophic scars, atrophic scars are indented in appearance due to healing that occurs below the expected layer of skin. This type of scar is most commonly associated with chickenpox or acne, although they also form as the result of having a mole removed or after types of surgery including MOHS reconstruction.

There are three distinct types of atrophic scar. Atrophic scars that have the appearance of a deep pore are known as icepick scars. Flat-bottomed scars that resemble chickenpox scars are defined as boxcar scars. Finally, rolling scars are identified by a lack of distinct edges and are typically located around the cheeks.

Atrophic Scar Treatments

The type of treatment that Dr. Kenrick Spence recommends will depend on which of the three types of scars is identified during consultation. In some cases, patients may need a number of treatments at the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center for atrophic scars.

As with all scar treatments, there are risks associated with the attempted removal of atrophic scars. Dr. Spence will fully discuss any associated risks and potential outcomes of atrophic scar treatment during a virtual consultation.
