What is the etiology of these bumps from acne scars and how to get rid of them
Nodular hypertrophic acne scars
If you look up the literature these scars are not common, and realistically I see 1 in 50 patients with this form of scars. They are hard, whitish in colour and almost 'seed like'. They respond well to a series of small CS injections or a series of Co2 fractional laser and steroid drip method under occlusion. See a good derm. or plastics. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Thanks for your question. Acne scars and other atrophic scars can be improved tremendously by laser skin resurfacing, which stimulates your body to fill in under the scars with collagen. You may also use injectable fillers to raise scars and give the skin a smooth appearance. Hypertrophic scars can be treated with steroid injections that will diminish their appearance. Along with the natural reduction of the scar, this gives very good results. Hope this helps! Best, Dr. Katz
