Acne scars are considered “atrophic scars,” which means the affected area forms as a depression or a pit because of damage to the collagen, fat or other tissues below the skin surface.

Atrophic scars can be the result of: 

    • Acne
    • Chickenpox
    • Surgery, and accidents 
    • Atrophic scars are not as dense or raised scars like a hypertrophic or keloid scars.

Typical Treatments for Atrophic Scars

Treatment for acne scars involves the breakdown of scar tissue and regrowth of new, healthy skin in its place. This can sometimes be achieved by lasers, dermabrasion methods, and chemical reconstruction agents.

How Does Fusion Scar Gel Work?

When applied directly to the scars, Fusion’s specialized formula will help treat inflammation and discoloration. Acne scars may be reduced and softened in appearance and texture.


Acne is a common skin condition that affects most individuals at some time in their life and can often lead to scarring on the face, neck, upper back, and back of arms. Both acne and the remaining scars contribute to psychological and emotional stress. Acne scars are typically atrophic scars, which are caused by destruction and loss of collagen leading to indentations in the skin. Inflammation plays a major role in scar formation. Inflammatory breakouts are more likely to form scars, and popping pimples causes an inflammatory response that contributes to scar formation.

Since acne scars are ‘atrophic’ scars, they can sometimes be more difficult to treat than regular scars. Fusion Specialty Pharmacy has developed a scar gel that works specifically for acne scars. It targets atrophic scars deep in the skin promoting collagen formulation and new skin growth.

Using Fusion Specialty Pharmacy’s acne scar gel may help soothe the skin and lessen the appearance of the scars.
