Seattle Box Car Scar Treatment Continued:

Box car scars are basically scars that are wide and depressed. They are differentiated from ice pick scars because they are wider and not pin point like ice pick scars. Between the ideal picture of each there is a wide variation of presentations. The way they form is because the Acne infection occurs in the hair follicle and depending on the depth of the infection this will determine how deep the scar is. Depending on the spread of the infection through the tissues, the width of the scar is determined.  So as you can see no scars are a like and depending on the depth and width of the infection the subsequent scar can take the same subsequent appearance.

How do you treat Box Car Scars. Here are the options:

  1. Subcision by cutting the tissue around the circumference of the scar and then elevating it and closing it
  2. Subcision with a needle and then treating the surface through resurfacing
  3. Complete excision
  4. Deep chemical peeling
  5. Skin grafting
  6. Laser Resurfacing or other resurfacing approaches including: Dermabrasion, Dermasanding, co2 laser resurfacing, erbium resurfacing, fraxel resurfacing, chemical peels (different depths), microdermabrasion.
  7. Fillers
  8. Punch Grafting
  9. Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment: is the Best Choice!!!

The above before and afters were achieved with the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treament and is our preferred route of treatment for Acne Box Car Scars. What about the other options just mentioned? Well subcision and elevating the tissue with closure can work. However, often times, the tissues tend to want to scar down again and become depressed and the surface isn't really changed as much. Subcision by creating blood and then collagen underneath the Box Car scar can work but is not as effective and healing as the Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment. The results are not as good. Complete excision can be risky but can be a good option if you are willing to risk having a longer thinner scar versus the one you have. But this could potentially be one of the better treatments. Deep chemical peeling can cause the tissue of the Box Car Scar to get raised up. This option tends to raise the scar but can leave a definite difference in skin tone and texture than the surround normal skin. Skin grafting is a bad choice in our opinion and can lead to obvious skin differences that people don't like. Laser resurfacing can be very important to treat the surface portion and is vital some where in the time line of your treatment. Fillers can fill the depression but are temporary. Punch grafting tends to leave obvious skin differences but can help with the depression but requires skin from somewhere else.
