ACNE SPOTS

We always attempt to heal our pimples quick and early. But usually, these acne lesions leave behind blemishes on the skin in the form of dark brown or black spots, which are all the more frustrating!

Why do they occur?

When a pimple pops up on your skin, it’s technically a form of inflammation. And as your skin heals and new skin cells form, it’s possible that the cells sent to help restore your skin’s smooth surface contain too much melanin. Melanin is what gives your skin its colour, and when certain cells have more melanin than others, the result is a darker patch of skin. This is referred to as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

What are the chances of developing acne spots?

Acne spots are very common.
Whenever the skin inflammation is prolonged, like because of popping or squeezing the acne, using an irritant product on the skin, the chances of developing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation increase.
People who have naturally darker skin tones are more prone to this condition.

How are acne spots different from acne scars?

Dark spots from acne is different than acne scars.

Scars are the irregularities in the skin surface seen as holes and depressions. Sometimes, acne scars can be elevated as well. Scars require tissue to be damaged or overgrown. Scars are difficult to fully remove, and while they may fade over time, they usually remain visible.

Dark spots from acne, on the other hand, are flat lesions. They don’t indicate any long-term damage to your skin cells, pores, or follicles. It can take a while, but dark spots tend to become lighter over time, and eventually go away completely. It can take anywhere from 3 months to 2 years for them to vanish from view.

That doesn’t mean you have to wait forever in hopes that your dark spots will fade. There are plenty of dermatology treatments you can try to get rid of them more quickly.

What is the treatment of acne spots?

The most basic is topical products containing active ingredients that stop the synthesis of melanin in dark spots while peeling off old skin and encouraging new growth.
Examples are-

Retinoids (vitamin A)

Vitamin C

Vitamin E (tocopherol)

Hydroquinone

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), such as mandelic acid, glycolic acid

Beta hydroxy acid (BHA), such as salicylic acid

Benzoyl peroxide

Kojic acid

Azelaic acid

More effective and quicker way to get rid of acne spots is by opting for some physical treatment modalities in addition to the products.
These therapies include:

Chemical peels

Microdermabrasion

Laser resurfacing

Medi Facial

Carbon facial

Photofacial

Face PRP

A combination of one or more of the above mentioned therapeutic options can remove the acne spots over few months.

How can I prevent dark spots?

The best way to prevent dark spots is to seek treatment for your acne early. You should avoid picking and popping your acne. Avoid applying any products that cause skin irritation and inflammation.
Using a broad spectrum sunscreen regularly also helps in reducing the chances of developing dark spots.

How much time does it take for the spots to disappear?

If you do not seek any active treatment for acne spots, they tend to fade away on their own over a period of 3 months to 2 years.
However, if you use any topical products, healing time can be reduced to 6-9 months, and with added procedure based therapy, dark spots can vanish in as less as 3 months period.
